Nifty Thrifty Tuesday No.190

Gotta a second? Today, I still have a football hangover from all the celebrating that I did Saturday at Jordan-Hare! Oh yes...I was at the mother of all Iron Bowls Saturday. Most of you know that I am a huge Auburn Tiger fan and attend a lot of games, and I can say that this was the best ever. Just two short weeks ago, I was there to see the MIRACLE at Jordan-Hare and I thought that nothing could beat that awesome play. Then here comes the Iron Bowl and both teams have so much on the line, we are tied 28-28 and about to go into overtime, but wait...Nick (Saban) wanted a second put back on the clock...so his team could kick a field goal and beat us...then wait a second...we will put our kick returner back there in the end zone...the kick is short...our Chris Davis catches the ball and returns it 109 yards for a touchdown and AUBURN beats Alabama with Nick's second!!!! I was screaming so loud...laughing up a storm...dancing like crazy...hugging Mr.CC...crying like a baby...all at the same time! I have never cried at a football game before, but when Sammie scored the touchdown to tie the game up, the tears started rolling and I had a hard time stopping them. Then, Chris makes the play of all plays in college football, and the tears started again. My head was pounding, my heart beating so fast, the emotions were just unreal. I had just witness the BEST IRON BOWL ever...oh my!!! Now, I do want to say this, if you are an Alabama fan, please know that I hope you don't get offended with my post. The game was close, but teams worked really hard to get the "W", but only one could be the winner at the end. The sports world is saying that the outcome of this game, has gone to the top of all college football games, so with that said, I just had to post about my AWESOME time at Jordan-Hare...WAR EAGLE!! Features from last weeks party will be posted on my facebook page this week, so please be sure to check there for them.

                      Here we are before the game started.

                                     Here we come!!!!

Here is a link to the final play...since most national news shows and morning shows
have played this several times...I am sure you have seen it...but if you haven't...here
it is!

                        The outcome! We are now the SEC West
                        Champions and we will play Missouri this
                        Saturday for the SEC title. This should be
                        another fun game to watch, because we are
                                      both really good teams.

                    The AUBURN FAMILY never storms the field
                    after a victory, but as our announcer said after
                    the one second touchdown, nothing was going
                    to keep us off of it after this victory and he was
                                             so right!

                        The scene from our seats...oh my!!!

                      The picture came out blurry, but I still love it.
                      It was hard to take good pictures with all the

                        Look who we found at Toomer's...my baby TIGER!

                                     Our 2013 Christmas card.

                     Having a fun time rolling Toomer's Corner with my
                     favorite TIGER. As you can see, all my make-up is
                     gone, my hair is a mess, but I am still celebrating our
                                                BIG WIN!!!!!

                               I think every tree in the area got rolled.

                          We are so happy that Mary Claire came with
                           us to Auburn (she watched the game with some
                           friends at their condo).

                 We do miss our Toomer's trees (three years ago a Alabama
                 fan poisoned them after we won that Iron Bowl). We all
                 knew that it wouldn't stop us from our tradition of rolling
                         Toomer's Corner after a win and it hasn't.

                          Here is what Toomer's Corner looked liked
                                         Sunday morning.

                         Thanks for coming to NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAY
                          today and letting me share this AWESOME WIN
                                                with  all of you.

Wow...sounds like an awesome game to be at. I'm from Oregon and our two rival schools played this weekend in the Civil War. The outcome wasn't exactly how my family would have liked it to be, but still a fun game to watch with U of O only winning by 1 point.

Thanks for letting me sahare some ornaments I made and also for hosting each week:-)

It was an exciting weekend for the SEC! I love to warch that final play even though I am dyed garnet and black supporting the Gamecocks. We have to decide which Tiger to root for. Thanks for the game photos - love the Toomer's Corner tradition - and thanks for hosting.

What an awesome game - huge congratulations! And that is precisely why college football is so much fun!

Blondie's Journal said...

Wow...you have some fantastic pictures, here!! And you really had me caught up in the excitement. Now...please don't hit me with your pom pom, but my niece works for Alabama as a recruiter, annnnnd, I don't like football. BUT...I just happened to be at my daughter's on Saturday and they had the game on. I couldn't get over the colors on that HD TV and so I found myself watching and yes, it was very exciting!! So, hurray for you and your two favorite Tigers!


Gail Wilson said...

That must have been so exciting! I've seen the re-play on t.v. over and over. It was AMAZING!

Thank you for another great party, Linda! Congrats on the W. (UGA got their W, too!)
There are some crazy Bama fans out there--glad ya'll made it home safe! Lol! (I'm still shocked about the trees...)

Kathy Moreland said...

My husband and I went absolutely crazy when Chris made that run and TD. Hubby broke the handle on the recliner he jerked it so hard to jump out of his chair. I was running toward the t.v. screaming like an idiot! I mean, we are 60 and 70 years old. It's a wonder we didn't have a heart attack. Best game I've ever seen!!

Jeanette@Creating A Life said...

Sounds like a blast, Linda! Thanks so much for the party!

Zuni, Chickadee Home Nest said...

Yes, that was quite the win! We actually saw TWO unbelievable wins--Ohio State's and Auburns! Exciting!! Thanks for hosting, Linda.

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

We are neutral about the teams, but it was so fun to watch! We were having happy hour at our favorite watering hole so it was extra fun with the crowd there. Haha! I'm sure it was very exciting to be there.

Vickie @ makingoursustainablelife.com said...

I think you should start a collection to buy some new trees for the corner! I think the tradition of "rolling" the trees is hilarious! Congratulations on the win! Thanks for hosting - have a great week!

Laura said...

Linda, I got tears in my eyes just reading your account of the game. Good grief! :) And I didn't even go to Auburn. But since I'm married to an Auburn grad, I sure do cheer for them!! I was watching it alone at home, while my daughter took a nap. My hubby was at a friend's house watching. And I literally leapt off the couch and was screaming and dancing. I still get chill bumps thinking about it. What an amazing win!! WAR EAGLE!

Lori said...

We were screaming our heads off. Made the grand babies cry. Not a huge fan of either school. But, definately not a Bama Fan. So, we were cheering for Auburn! Glad you got to see it.

Grammy Goodwill said...

I'm a big VA Tech fan, as I think I have told you before. Our rivalry game ended in time for us to see the end of your BIG game. I was so glad I got to see it, although I certainly could have watched the replays as well. It must have been unbelievable to be there in the stands. Congratulations to Auburn.

Vesna (HOME CHIC CLUB) said...

Thanks for hosting Linda. Have a great day!

Babs Richman said...

Wow! Exciting game, even though I'm a Georgia fan. :)
It's always more exciting to be at the game instead of watching it on tv like we usually do.
Thanks so much for hosting Nifty Thrifty Tuesday.

Elizabeth Hayes said...

My husband was jumping to the ceiling on that last play. I think it's so cool you were there. Thanks for a great party! Hope you're having a great week.

ThrifterSisters said...

In the midst of all of my holiday decorating over the weekend, I somehow missed this game and the incredible outcome. I did manage to catch a recap on The Today Show yesterday morning though. AMAZING and how cool you were there!

Incredible game! Now that's what I call excitement! Your baby Tiger is gorgeous and love the pics of all of you - great Christmas card.
My brother and I had a great time with the OSU vs Mich game which was also close the entire game. He's a Mich fan, I'm an OSU fan. So fun to be together for such rivalry.

Stop by and take a look at all our December pretties for your viewing pleasure. Marie has an enormous Christmas Village that will amaze you among her other creations for the holidays!

Blessings, Edie Marie
