I’ve defended prisons and denounced politicians. I’ve talked of death and being lost in this Jumanji of a year. I’ve celebrated the lives of two grandparents, a cousin and a feline fellow that was the embodiment of Fat Thor.
Unfortunately, the 85th edition of the Iron Bowl went about like I expected it to go. I did believe the Tigers would score more points and be able to move the football a little more efficiently, but the final score of 42-13 wasn’t surprising. Alabama is a much better team than Auburn in 2020 and they proved it.
The Philadelphia Eagles have been my favorite football team since before I even fell head over heels for the game following the USC-Texas national championship also known as the greatest game ever played.
Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays. Some of my fondest memories revolve around getting together with family, eating enormous amounts of home-cooked food and playing tag football in the yard. I also simply love the idea of setting aside a specific day to just be thankful.

It's my favorite sport by a wide margin and I spend practically my entire Saturday in the fall watching as many possible games as my simple brain can handle. Obviously, Auburn is my top priority, but I'll gleefully watch any game no matter what conference or affiliation. However, even I was pushed to the limit of ambivalence this past weekend.

But, after Clemson’s 47-40 double overtime loss to Notre Dame, not only did Lawrence’s stock go up, Dabo Swinney and the rest of the team’s stock plummeted to the ground and looks to be in trouble going forward.
The NFL entered its second week of play this past weekend and unfortunately for fans, there was a multitude of injuries that piled up, potentially ruining the season for some teams.
We were all witnesses 10 years ago when Cam Newton took the sports world by storm. His infectious smile glistened as he torched defenses en route to a 50-touchdown season, eventually winning him the Heisman Memorial trophy. It was one of the most impressive college football seasons in history.
