Born: Birmingham, AL. while The Bear was still dominant. Still thinks Auburn is "that school down the road".
Grew up: Tampa, FL while the Buccaneers still stunk...got to see them go from worst to first. Now, we are working on our Rays!
Passion: SEC football, Alabama football, Buccaneer football. I even "like" our rivals. I appreciate the enthusiasm that college football offers (especially in the South). There is nothing like cheering to "Yea Alabama" after the Tide scores a touchdown...and there is respect and admiration for "Tiger Rag" when LSU scores, "Rocky Top" when Tennessee runs onto the field (although I do tend to throw up a little in my mouth when this takes place), and the redundant "Tomahawk Chop" of Florida State which drones on throughout the entire game. Southern football traditions- love 'em or hate 'em- are the absolute best.
