Anyone who knows me knows my undying obsession with the Alabama Crimson Tide. They may not like it or understand it, but they know that come gameday, I’ll be feeling the words, “Roll Tide” in my bones… even though I’m technically a Gator now.
I’ll let current Alabama linebacker Ryan Anderson explain: “When I came [to Tuscaloosa], I just felt like I was at home.” I always felt the same way; the first time I stepped foot in Tuscaloosa, touring the campus as a senior in high school, I knew I’d found a second home.
Yesterday afternoon was the Alabama spring football game, also known as, “A Day.” Last year during the spring football game I was in Bryant-Denny Stadium with my former roommates, and although this game isn’t hugely exciting for spectators like a usual gameday is, it’s still an amazing atmosphere.
I learned so much from my time as a student at the University of Alabama, but the school and its wildly successful football team have also taught me many a life lesson since my time there was up.
