I'm 54 and still greatly enjoy the games, and I'm a live music junkie as well, so I don't mind mingling in crowds. If I'm not at a Bama game, though, I want to watch it alone. I remember the stadium explosions mentioned above. The first play Prothro TD in his Florida injury game was loud. There was a scoop and score against Georgia (we ended up losing, I believe) that was a seismic event. The streak-breaking game against aubrun was loud, and almost every LSU game in Tuscaloosa is crazy loud as everyone pitches in to drown out the corn dogs. I've always enjoyed the Atlanta games (openers and SECC/Playoffs) when I get to hear the extremely loud opponent's fans go from a frenzy in the first quarter, to anger/hope in the second quarter, to dejected silence in the second half - all the while Bama fans build.
Some of it is memorable over the years from being there with the boys, but for some time now when they get tix they take the pair. Some UT games, the SoMiss Prothro catch, others memorable with one of the boys. As they were growing up, I've worn my arm out throwing on the quad, ritually hitting Dreamland inbound and Milo's outbound; however, probably 75 percent of the games - most of the big ones - I've attended over the years have been with my best friend - fraternity brother, college roommate, hiking partner for over 2,500 miles. He's in Northport, he and his wife have businesses there - batteries and cheesecakes - so it makes a game day pretty easy.
I was at the games I put in bold above. Also at many of the LSU games from about 2000 to 2013. Had a friend that was a tide pride member and I would pay for one of those tickets and occasionally get his other tickets when he could so I could take my son when he was little.
Yeah my ex hated crowds and she hated that I was a Bama football fan(took my attention away from her for those few Saturdays each year). After ten years together, we finally called it quits, we were both stubborn or it would have ended much sooner. The guy she married a few years later, another Bama fan and she somewhat got over it, as she posted pics of them in BDS on FB. This was a full decade after our divorce but that still stung. I guess she finally went to a Bama game with me...as I was in BDS that same game.
