Bryant Denny Stadium- Tuscaloosa, AL
Oh man do I love football season. We’ve been doing a lot of football watching around the Bryant house so I thought I’d share some of it with you. The above picture is of Bryant Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, AL home of The University of Alabama Crimson Tide (where I went to college). This stadium is probably in my top 5 favorite places I’ve ever been. Call it lame, call it cool, call it whatever you want…I LOVE Alabama Football! Our stadium was just expanded again and now holds a staggering 101,821 people making it the fifth largest stadium in the nation. Let me tell you one thing–it is LOUD in there.
Davis-Wade Stadium- Starkville, MS
Here is another place that I love. This is Davis-Wade Stadium in Starkville, MS home of the Mississippi State Bulldogs (where Mr. Fancy Pants went to college). Both State and Alabama are SEC schools so we have some friendly rivalry going on in our house from time to time. Avey has become a really big football fan and demanded new game day gear for this football season. So we bought him new collars and jerseys for both Alabama and Mississippi State. I’d venture to say he’s the one that’s fancy now!
Avey's Alabama and Mississippi State football jerseys
Avey's Game Day collars. Yes they're engraved with his deets on the back. Just in case he gets too excited about a game and runs out the front door.
Avey dons his gear during each game which ultimately means he changes clothes a lot on Saturdays. It’s ok though because he’s a true fan.
The Fancy Pants family in our MSU gear during the MSU/LSU game. MSU ALMOST had a win that game!
These pictures were yesterday during the Alabama/Florida game. Avey may look upset in these pictures and you may think, “Hum, it’s probably because you put a DOG’S football jersey on a cat.” I encourage you NOT to jump to that conclusion my friends. He was just really into the game and was not in a picture taking mood. But we had to capture the moment so he got over it.

Here are Avey and I during the 4th quarter when I decided to take pictures. Mr. Fancy Pants and Avey were not amused with my timing. In my defense, it was during a time out.
Man oh man do we love some football here! A few weeks ago we flew to Mississippi to see all of William’s college buddies and went to an MSU game. I’ll post about that soon! In the meantime… ROLL TIDE ROLL and GO DAWGS!
