Tigers that turn into something that flies? Auburn is Voltron.
And we are back. Holy crap was last weekend more than I could handle. I am pretty sure that the greater area of downtown Denver now hates me, but man did I have fun. So this week we are going going, back back to Cal..aww shit Bama Bama. It just doesn't have the same ring. Tell 'em Chris
I have a little bit of a love towards Auburn since most people and the media see them as little brother to the Big Crimson Monster in Tuscaloosa. Growing up an Aggie I know the feeling of having some ass-hat school hogging all the spotlight. But I digress, time to make fun of y'all a little bit. Did you know it is illegal to sell peanuts, on Wednesday, after Sundown in Lee County Alabama. That is way to specific a law. Something weird had to go down...
Also Rocket Science was pretty much born in Alabama. Not at Auburn, but y'all can claim it any way.
That seems about right.
Besides top notch lernin' Alabama does have some pretty kick ass music. Last time in the playlist we delved into more of the country side, this week is all about the rock. I was surprised at much good new music I found this week, so kudos to you Alabama.
It's good to be home boys, unfortunately my tailgate this week will be in the big D as I start the wedding season out right, as drunk as possible. So let's kickback, enjoy some football and try not to have another effing heart attack this week. Y'all be safe, happy listening everybody!
