A prophecy from a converted VT fan.

Hello fellow RBR followers,

I have a rather funny voicemail that was left to me by my Virginia Tech Alum friend moments after the 6-9 loss in overtime of our beloved Crimson Tide to the Bengal Corndogs of Louisiana. I have kept it for a while and I thought I would share it with ya'll.

I invited my friend, who I mentioned above, to come visit me in Birmingham and go with me to the Alabama vs. Vanderbilt game. He knew I was a huge fan of the Tide and so he began checking out Tide Football. Needless to say, after the game he was a complete convert. He says "Roll Tide" everytime I talk to him and his girlfriends son even got in trouble at school for saying "Roll Tide" in the middle of class. He even has a favorite player...Brad Smelley or Smell-Dog as he calls him. I say complete convert, but I think he still does cheer for his Chokies every once in a while, but I'll try to ween him off as I was weened myself off my previous team the Virginia Cavaliers.

Here is a transcript of the (drunken) message left for me at 10:48pm Central on November 5th, 2011

"Roll Tide. Man!...what a game. That was a great game. Lift your head up. Don't be sad. Drink some more. Wait for the traffic to go by. And just know the Tide played their f*%&ing hearts out ...No one even scored [a TD]. You realize that? No one scored. And it went to overtime. It was a great game and I guarantee there will be a rematch. Oh yes...there will be a rematch."
