Greetings From Glendale - We're #1 !!!


Auburn's Wes Bynum makes it happen.  See it here.

It's all over but the shouting!!
Those of you that have followed this blog for a while know that I'm not a sports person, but I do love some SEC football, namely my Auburn Tigers.  True AU fans love 'em win or lose (but winning is so much more fun)!  While I was snoozing the night away in Paris a few weeks ago, the Auburn faithful were cheering on the Tigers  in Glendale, Arizona for the National Championship.  From what I hear, the Auburn Nation filled about 3/4 of the stadium and they're all still talking about what a great time it was.

Today, my guest photographer is my friend Martha Ann Doyal who was right there with her family and has kindly shared some photos of the big game.  This past Saturday about 70,000 fans packed Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn to welcome the team and just have a general love fest.  I missed that too but I've enjoyed the hearing all about it.  WAR EAGLE!

YES, YES, YES,

The Auburn FAMILY is "All in to WIN". Thanks to your friend for a dramatic shot of "The Kick" which surpasses a certain kick by an across the state team in the '80s.

War Eagle !!!

As an older art collector since my wife passed away, I must admit to being very partial to collecting nudes in art, as original paintings or as good prints, that I have displayed all over the house. (I like to see the surprised faces of my new visitors).
