War Eagle!

The Auburn Tigers won the national championship tonight!

As regular visitors here know, Older Son and FDIL are Auburn grads, Daughter is a senior there now, and Younger Son will matriculate there next fall. Neither Wife nor I attended Auburn but, I assure you, I have PURCHASED my allegiance to Auburn!

Older Son, the savvy young man that he is, managed to purchase tickets to the game, as well as plane tickets, for much less than most. He could have sold the game tickets and come close to paying for his honeymoon. He didn't.

Daughter got a ticket through the lottery at school and, lucky young woman that she is, received a gracious invitation to accompany a friend's family who has a private plane.

As I write this, the two of them are celebrating in Glendale, Arizona. Wife, Younger Son and I watched from the comfort of home.

Through the speed of modern technology, I can already show you photos. War Eagle!

Awesome! Memories like that are almost always worth the $.

(He tells himself once again after taking his kids and mom to the Texans/Chiefs game this year and sitting 10th row at the 40-yard line.)

Yeah, and fortunately this one didn't cost me anything but the cost of Daughter's ticket . . . but I have shelled out my share over the years!

Great commentary in my local paper. I posted it for you on my blog.
