Ala bam a
Like the jaws of a gator, fans waved their hands.
And 86,000 jammed the stands.
For 30 games they'd won in the Swamp,
They had come to witness another romp.
The Tide would control the clock this day,
And match the Gators play for play,
Up and down the field they moved like the Dow,
Taking chunks of yardage off the arm of Zow.
But at the end of regulation there was something still to settle,
That would surely test these men and their mettle.
The score was tied, no one would leave,
Bama won the toss, Spurrier looked peeved.
Florida scored first and took the lead,
It looked like the Gators were ready to feed.
The scene on the sidelines, not a pretty sight,
When the extra point sailed wide to the right.
Bama's line blew a hole the size of a crater,
Alexander burst through, see ya later alligator.
Touchdown Alabama!! We've just tied the score,
But, we missed the kick, couldn't slam the door.
Then the clouds opened up, and a yellow flag fell,
I wonder who threw it, I couldn't tell.
Then a voice I heard above this din,
"Line up boys, let's do it again."
Off with the visor, who will catch the wrath?
For his team had just taken a Crimson bath.
The "Swamp" is quiet now, shrouded in mist,
The Gators have learned, don't get the Bear pissed!
My brother and I are big Alabama Football fans, and he sent this to me today...It may not make much sense to some of ya.....but, what the hell?..right?
