Yesterday, I had the privilege of working at the Tennessee/Alabama football game. There are three reasons it was so much fun:
1. I got to see Smoky up close and personal. I love that dog.
2. I actually got to talk to Coach Phillip Fulmer. He is a wonderfully charming man. He called me “sweetie”, which is almost as good as calling a southern lady “darlin’”...
3. I met the offensive coordinator for Alabama. Okay, I know most Tennessee fans wouldn’t care about that, but he was very gracious in his win. I never mind losing to someone who is gracious.
Peyton Manning was also in the house, but I only got to see him from a distance, doggone it. All in all, a very good day. A Vols win would’ve made it a perfect day, but I was proud of our team yesterday. They played their hearts out.
