                                                     Heeeeeeeere Come The Tigers !

This Saturday on the Loveliest Village of the Plains, the best time of the year begins. Thousands of Auburn fans will gather around radios, TV sets, and at sports bars to watch the debut of the 2010 football season and cheer on their Tigers. Another 87,000 will have a family reunion at Jordan-Hare Stadium. I can hardly wait to renew old friendships, tailgate with family, and see my Tigers hit the field as the Auburn Band plays "War Eagle Fly Down the Field." The following lyrics are dedicated to all those Auburn Football fanatics, who like me, believe that college football season is truly the most wonderful time of the year.


                        College football is the most wonderful time of the year

                        College football is the most wonderful time of the year
                        With the kids throwing the football
                        And everyone telling you "Be of good cheer"
                        It's the most wonderful time of the year
                        It's the hap-happiest season of all
                        With those War Eagle greetings and tailgate meetings
                        When friends come to call
                        It's the hap- happiest season of all

                        There'll be parties for hosting 
                        Wieners for roasting
                        And listening to 'experts' in the know
                        There'll be great football stories
                        And tales of the glories of 
                        Great players long, long ago

                        It's the most wonderful time of the year
                        There'll be much tailgating
                        And hearts will be glowing
                        When our Auburn family is near
                        It's the most wonderful time of the year

                        It's the most wonderful time of the year
                        There'll be much celebrating
                        And fans will be cheering
                        When our team wins the game of the year 
                        It's the most wonderful time
                        It's the most wonderful time
                        It's the most wonderful time of the year...

                        For college football is finally here!

Ahh ... there is nothing like college football, for me and millions of others; it's the most wonderful time of the year. All the hype, the discussions, the prognosticating, the predictions, and the debate are all about to be settled, and where it should be settled - on the field. The long dark off season is almost over and the only real question left is  ...

Are You Ready For Some Football?
