At least for this poor blogger, the worst part of our neighbors to the west winning the BCS National Championship were the two text messages I received immediately after the game from each of my in-laws.
No sooner than the ball split the uprights, my phone went off twice: one a
very sarcastic ”War Eagle” text from the mother-in-law and one a more humble “it was a good game” text from the pa-in-law.
Both of these fine people (and wonderful in-laws, I might add, minus their alma mater) are graduates of Auburn. So I’ve had to hear it all year long. I was due, because I probably wasn’t the best sport these last few years when we had Auburn’s number. But still, it hurts. Especially coming from in-laws.
I strongly dislike Nick Fairley, Gene Chizik, and their stupid receivers coach whose name I won’t even mention. I have a general disdain for the University as a whole. But the real stinger is having to take it from my wife’s parents.
I hope none of you had the same experience. Here’s to hoping we can all repay the favor in the very near future.
I can now put this awful 2010 season behind me. Everyone has their time, and mine is now. I’m glad we’re in 2011.
