One of my favorite parts about tailgating is being some of the very first to arrive. It's gorgeous. It's quiet. It's the best part of the day. I'm a people watcher. And I watch people arrive by the thousands from my little chair in tent #57 all while sipping my morning cocktail and catching the first games of the day on ESPN.
Saturday was no different. There was a chill in the air and a little extra pep in everyone's step. The bulldogs were 6-0 with the opportunity to be 7-0 going into next weekend to play the #1 team in the country, Alabama... in Tuscaloosa.
|Sister time in the Junction.|
We tailgated our little booties off in the Junction, starting around 10:30 with a 6 p.m. kick off. Everyone totally confident but still a little bit anxious because we are Mississippi State...
Well mess it up, we did not.
We won 45-3 over MTSU.
Now it's time to move on up to the big leagues.
Alabama. #1 team in the country. In Tuscaloosa.
Lawd have mercy.
Do I expect us to beat Alabama?
Do I expect us to upset Alabama in Bryant-Denny Stadium?
Do I think it's possible?
Do I think we'll play them a heck of game?
Yep, that's who you think it is... Mrs. Megan Mullen, Dan's wife. All of the coach's wives tailgate right next to us and sometimes we get just obnoxious enough to talk to her. She's the sweetest.. and the skinniest :) The guys literally start to act like they are 13 again. It's hysterical.
It's a great day to be a Bulldog :)
SEE YA SATURDAY!
