I got a call this evening that my son has been selected to play little league baseball by one of the best coaches in this part of SC. While delivering the good news the coach told me that I might have a problem with one small detail (long pause) - the name of the team will be the Auburn Tigers!
In this league, they use "neutral" SEC/ACC (not Carolina or Clemson) teams and order uniforms to match these teams. My son is in shock! We knew the day might come that his team would be named the VOLs or maybe even the LSU Tigers . . . but never this! Wife and I have already been talking about how to modify his uniform - sew a script "A" of the A in Auburn, airbrushing his helmet to reflect his proper Bama upbringing, etc. Any ideas on how we can make this more tolerable for him (ME)?!!!
