Parents weekend weekend. Mrs S will be attending her very first SEC game down in the Great State of Alabama. She’s got her navy and blue togs all packed up and ready for the big game tomorrow. Actually it’s not all that big a game. The folks down at Auburn University like to plan a sort of guaranteed win for the Parents Weekend festivities. In the SEC that typically means “non-conference” opponent. No one wants to go down and see the lads get pounded by one of the powerhouses in the league, a league BTW heavy in powerhouses.
This weekend is also homecoming. I’ll be curious to find out of when they decided to make it both in one. I’m anticipating that in order to find a parking spot that’s actually in Auburn’s city limits. Probably should have arrived on campus yesterday. I made the trip last year and the tailgate alone was worth the trip. So off we go, in search of football and perfect grits.
