Reason #6: Football

Saturday was the kickoff to one of the most glorious times of year: college football season, more importantly, SEC football season, and, even more importantly than that, Auburn football season. Yes, friends—this superb time has begun.

Isn’t it such a fun time? From proudly sporting your teams colors after you’ve just had a victory, to watching the game with anticipation and excitement, to looking for your team among the rankings.

As I mentioned before, I am an Auburn football fan—a die-hard one. Our family LOVES Auburn, and I mean LOVES it. It has been a part of our family for years. Football season is taken very seriously in our household. 

One of my favorite memories was watching the Auburn versus Alabama game back in 2010, the year Auburn won the well-deserved national championship. We were all sitting in my grandparent’s living room, watching with baited breath as Auburn and Alabama fought to the end and as Cam Newton led Auburn to another victory of 28-27.

Football brings our entire family together and adds joy to our gatherings. I am very thankful to be an Auburn Tiger.

So if you’re not a fan and are looking for a team to root for, choose Auburn, and join all of us in saying the beloved phrase that the Auburn family says, “War Eagle.”
