Living in Birmingham, AL, the Sugar Bowl was so much sweeter to me. Hearing the Bamers talk for months and months about how we did not stand a chance. It was a surreal moment watching Zeke spint those 85 yards. An outer body experience almost. It happened in slow motion. Those 85 yards have hands down been the sweetest college football moment of my life.
I am married to a Bama grad (which by the way, God bless these tan southern sundress wearing women).(Another side note, we would have been in the Super Dome had it not been for a last minute illness and change of plans) Since I already had been standing for most of the game, when Zeke hit the hole, I sprinted behind the couch where my wife could not see me. ( I was trying to somewhat not rub it in, as she has always been classy to the Buckeyes as well). I silently jumped up and down with both hands raised as high as they could get in the air. I ran into the bedroom, shoved a pillow in my face, and screamed as loud as I possibly could. Calmly walked back into the living room, and remained standing for quire some time with both hands still raised in the air.
What a moment. I love you all Buckeye Nation.
