Counting Their Chickens…

At the risk of upsetting my Alabama friends, I couldn't resist taking a picture of this sign that greeted me at the entrance to Academy Sports today.

Do y'all suppose if Alabama loses they'll just hang black wreaths on the doors and close up for a week while half the state is in mourning?  And have you ever wondered what happens to all that stuff that gets printed for the team that ends up losing?  Guess they can just have a big bonfire.

LOL, it's almost enough to make me want to root against them. If they were playing anyone besides the teasips, I probably would. As it is (and boy this hurts to say) Roll Tide!

Contrast that with the attitude here---the t-sips are all pretty glum. They know they're going to get slaughtered. The little dozen was nothing this year.

I'll have to go by Academy (a Houston, Texas based institution) and see if they've got some kind of similar poster on the door for texass u (spit). If so, I'll post it on my blog.

Oh gosh. I was in a mall in Denver while the Broncos were playing once. I could not find anyone to ring up my purchase! Now I am curious, what do they do with all that stuff?

How would this picture upset your Alabama friends? It seems like a good plug for them to me!

And, I think The Tide will roll right over the Horns anyway.

Come link up with Arkansas Bloggers. The link for that is on my blog. Until I actually figure out the best way to organize everyone, I will have everyone link up with Mister Linky. Happy New Year!

My husband will LOVE this!! He is Alabama, I am Auburn.

However, I will be pulling for the Tide! I am NOT an obnoxious Auburn fan.....

I'm confused by the meaning of the sign...like - if the game is over at 11pm, all of the Academy lights in the state are going to pop on and be fully functional?
