Re: Alabama Beek
Least them Volunteer fans didn’t point out that big old pin oak tree out front and say, “See that ‘thair’ oak tree? That’s where the last Bama fan who walked into this joint on game day hung out.”

You know, I have always felt a little sorry for Tennessee Volunteer fans, Vanderbilt has never produced the kind of football program that could spark a cross state rivalry of the same magnitude as Alabama-Auburn ok, ok, Auburn-Alabama.
I like a good close (low scoring, hard hitting) football game as well as the next man, just as long as the Crimson Tide wins. But, UT’s Neyland stadium in Knoxville, Tennessee has got to be the hardest place on Earth for a visiting team to play football. First, except for the river bank it’s at the bottom of a hole in the ground, and the acoustics remind me of a parking garage’s. Neyland stadium officially seats 104,079 frantic, wild-eyed, screaming Volunteer fans. Since Tennessee fans never sit, but remain standing from start to finish singing Rocky Top at the top of their voices, I suspect the unofficial capacity is closer to a quarter million. If the Vol’s fans are slightly drunk 500,000, and any time they are deep into their cups, or the SEC Eastern Division Championship is at stake and Tennessee scores, well let’s just say that people in Haiti run screaming into the streets.
Gotta run, the Stupid Bowl is comming on in a few.
