Iron Bowl and Movie Review

This day in Alabama is the day we wait for all through football season. It's the day of the Iron Bowl. The Iron Bowl is the last regular college football game of the season and is between The University of Alabama and Auburn University, instate rivals. I guess you would have to live in Alabama to fully understand how big this game is. Every Alabama resident is defined by whether they are for Alabama or Auburn. I think every baby born in this state is required to list on their birth certificate whether they will scream Roll Tide! or War Eagle! It's just part of living in Alabama -- you HAVE to choose your allegiance. My parents apparently listed "Roll Tide" on my birth cerficate, so I have been a die-hard Alabama fan for as long as I can remember. I am writing this post as I'm watching the game because I'm a little nervous and I can't sit still. My team has not had a good year and we are behind in the game right now -- in fact, my hubby just got so frustrated with it that he left the room. I have no idea why I care so much about a silly football game. Whether we win or lose is not going to affect my life in any way.

Earlier this afternoon, we went to see a movie, "August Rush". I had read some reviews about it on the internet and most of them seemed to mention something about it being like a modern day Cinderella fairy tale type story. I don't know about that, but I absolutely loved the movie! It was about music and a boy who was separated from his mother at birth and always feeling like the music inside him would bring them back together. It's also about the mother and the father of the child finding each other again. Of course, being a musician and a mother, the movie touched me and I would recommend it to anyone who likes love stories and happy endings.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music...
Psalm 98:4

Serendipitously stumbled on your blog, Roll Tide! Shame we couldn't win the last one.

Hi Kathy,
I thought of you on Saturday when we went to the concert.I was looking at the pianist and thinking that you must play like that.Do you do Christmas pagents at church etc ?
We used to have a Living Christmas tree at ours.
I think I am an auburn fan because of all the people who buy me hats !!This is where we became friends ,remember ?On Strawberrys blog we were discussing about asking people if they had found a church when they were new in the neighbourhood and from there somehow talked about college football and support!

Amel, let me know if you like the movie.

Lori, Of course you can use the same verse. We need to spread the Word.

Tip, glad you stopped by and Roll Tide! We'll get back on track next year.

Vintage Bunny, I do remember that conversation on Strawberry's blog! Yes, we do have a Christmas program at church in fact it is next weekend. It's the orchestra doing it and I will be playing the synthesizer. Practices every night this week!

Matt, I heard your team won! Congratulations!
