Ironbowl 2008… list of grievances.

30 11 2008

So, all said and done, that game rocked. Check the multiple YouTube videos of the loudest Rammer Jammer in my football-going career… and Bama Man‘s:

Here. Here. Here. Here.

Alas… not a one of them of the real fans… one of my list of grievances.

–No video of actual fans… just the posers and tools who have jumped the bandwagon.
–Few videos of the actual players… the ones who won the game.
–No, you didn’t take shots of Bama Man, the guy who dresses up in spandex each game and risks guesses at his own sexuality. Nor did you take shots of those 30-40 brave students who painted up in freezing temperatures… you took bad shots of drunk tools. Good job, future media pro.
–The body painters… I love you, but you messed up the entire section. Step forward next time, not back.
–The tools running around with minimal gear on and a Notre Dame cap on… really? Bama all the way and come if you mean it. And why were you trying to orchestrate the spirit of the painters? I think they are pumped up as it is.
–The cheerleaders. You finally got it right with not stringing the cheers “we’re behind you” and “shove it together.” Good job. Next time, don’t drown out me cheering “Javi” or “bullshit.”

I know I am going to be labeled “that guy” for writing this, but someone has to say it.

Don’t accept posers or pretenders… only the real deal. Its an insult to your team to allow any other type of fan in. You’ve been here the entire time and… more importantly… so has your team. Don’t cheat them. Cheer your hearts out and expose the fake. And make it about the damn team.

In the meantime, check these sites out if you want coverage of the team, the fans and the aftermath.
