For a lot of fans, the Fourth of July is not only a celebration of our great country, but a milestone of sorts. Once the grill goes cold and the last set of fireworks are launched, Auburn fans begin turning their attention to the upcoming season. For the first time in seven months, the season is close and kickoff is just around the corner.
Another sign the season is close at hand is the release of EA Sport's NCAA Football 2011. Some people swear this is what Christmas in July is all about - count me among them. For this reason, I was ecstatic when the folks at EA Sports asked to sponsor a week's worth of posts leading up to the game launch next Tuesday, July 13th.
They asked that we celebrate the fan - the Auburn fan. It's what their game is built around this year and it's what Track'em Tigers is all about - you, the fan.
Each day this week we'll be posting stories that celebrate the Auburn fan. The only way I know to do it is to tell you my story. I hope you'll join in and tell me your stories of Auburn fandom. Below is the list of articles for this week:
Monday: How I Became An Auburn Fan
Tuesday: All-Time Favorite Auburn Team
Wednesday: Tailgating Traditions
Thursday: All-Time Favorite Auburn Players
Friday: My Most Memorable Moments
Monday: Expectations For The 2010 Auburn Tigers
Tuesday: Christmas in July - The Release of NCAA Football 2011
This is going to be a great experience. I hope you'll join in. Happy July 4th Weekend to you and your family!
