Weagle Weagle

Last night, Justin went to the Auburn Alumni Fall Kick-Off Party with our good friend Hal Craig, owner of Momma Goldberg's-Inverness and corporate sponsor of the event. Hal got him a great VIP pass. Justin and Hal were the first people new Auburn head football coach, Gene Chizik spoke to when he entered the room!

Justin came home with this little jersey for Hayes. Look to the left of the #1 - it's a note to Hayes from Coach Chizik!

Coach Chizik is now the proud owner of a brand new Birmingham Home Theater t-shirt! Think he'll wear it on Game Day? Probably.

Now, let me clarify. I am still a devoted Alabama fan. Justin, as you may know, is an Auburn alumnus. I am of the opinion that Hayes can choose which team to cheer for when he is old enough to make the decision for himself. He cannot, however, choose which political party he will associate with. That has been pre-determined.

I'm hoping that Hayes will make a mascot association and pull for my team!

But I will be fair...

I know what it's like to marry into Auburn-ness! We gotta keep our teams #1 though. (Even when we have NO athletic hopes to speak of at the moment... GO CATS!). Oh, and Hayes is indeed a Republican... he told me.
