With 1:54, Alabama was down 17 to 9. The quarterback drove down. And then on the last play of the game, Alabama scored. With no time left, Alabama went for 2 points. "David Palmer (Duece) took the direct snap from the center and ran around the right side and scored..." (That's a quote from my husband.)
I was thrilled with a tie. My boyfriend wasn't. In fact, my boyfriend is now my husband. The rest of the quote from above was "and that was the worse night of my life." He's being a bit dramatic. But, for him, it was literally traumatic.
I was thrilled. I could get all of my friends together. No one lost. No one was happy. (Ok, ok, my husband insists that the Alabama crowd was happy. We were happy that we didn't loose.) But at least, we could all hang out. We went out for pizza. I have lots of fun pictures from that night.
Here's my husband and I (in 1993) after the game. He smiled for the 1st picture (how did I make him do that?) but he shows his real feelings in the 2nd photo.
Some comments about the photos (because I can't resist):
Check out my lovely perm.
Don't you adore my shoes?
How old does my boyfriend look??
He was 19 and I was 20.
THANKFULLY, NCAA started implementing overtime. No, no, noooo... there will be NO TIES during tomorrow's game!
