Your Wednesday Hoodoo Thread │Y'all Are Going To Hate Me

Our weekly attempt to curry favor with the Football Gods by admitting our moral, intellectual, and cultural shortcomings in a very public manner.

This is Auburn and I wanted to give everyone ample time to get their hoodoo in. You got three days, so make it good.

Auburn Tigers Submission

It's been a great seven months managing RBR and I wouldn't have traded this experience for the world but I fear after what I'm about to admit, y'all may track me down in Tallahassee and end my life....

For a win against Auburn and a birth in the 2013 SEC Championship game, I won't be watching the game. In fact, I'll be in a car with my wife and daughter driving to Orlando on our way to Disney World. That's right, not only am I skipping the game completely and voluntarily, I'm choosing to go to Disney instead.

I imagine this everyone, especially Fitty, right about now...


So, let me explain.

#1. We promised my daughter we'd take her to Disney for her 5th birthday which is in February. Well, 7 months ago, after said promise, we found out we were pregnant with our 3rd child and she is due in late February. So there's no way my wife could handle stomping around Disney, nine months preggers, with a five year old. Sooooo we moved the trip up a bit.

#2. The drive down during the game was an honest mistake in timing. We are actually going to Disney on Sunday and the wife wanted to go down the day before to hopefully make the trip less taxing on our four year old. I didn't realize that when she said the day before she actually meant leave around noon on Saturday. Oops.

#3. This is really the crux of the matter and why I am completely at peace with my decision. I take Alabama football far too seriously. This is a personal issue and I need to take a step back from watching games live. My kids are getting older and it's no longer funny (it never was) to watch daddy yell and scream at the TV. I want Alabama football to be something we do as a family, together and not something that alienates me from my entire family. Also, I want to set a good example for my kids, especially my boy, and my actions during games do not reflect that desire.

Hopefully my sacrifice and admission guarantees a win.

Roll Tide and beat EVERYONE.
