“The Crimson Tide delivered a decisive victory over the number 1 ranked Gators just a few minutes ago, making Alabama the 2009 Southeastern Conference Champions. The reporters are still interviewing the players and coaches. The confetti has not settled to the ground, but already everyone is looking toward the National Championship game.

Alabama turned in a great performance, easily managing to score early and often. The Tide moved the ball pretty much whenever and wherever they chose to. Florida made several mistakes that could have made it a closer game, but they really just never got any substantial momentum going.

Although I enjoyed the game immensely, I have to admit being a little disappointed. I expected stronger competition from Florida. I am not one of these guys who keeps up with all of the stats and watches every team that plays every weekend, so I do not pretend to be at all qualified to comment on why Alabama was able to dominate Florida the way they did. I will leave that to the professional commentators and armchair quarterbacks. But after being ranked behind them for weeks, I really expected more of a battle on the field.

Being a lifelong Alabama Crimson Tide fan, I am proud of our players. They played a great game, and I am looking forward to the National Championship game.

Congratulations Alabama Crimson Tide Players!
2009 SEC Champions!

I received this anecdote in an email from one of my friends. I love it and wanted to share it, so here it is.

A father wanted to read a magazine but was being bothered by his little girl, Shelby. She wanted to know what the United States looked like, he tore a sheet out of his new magazine on which was printed the map of the country. Tearing it into small pieces, he gave it to Shelby , and said, ‘Go into the other room and see if you can put this together. This will show you our whole country today.’

After a few minutes, Shelby returned and handed him the map, correctly fitted and taped together. The father was surprised and asked how she had finished so quickly.

‘Oh,’ she said, ‘on the other side of the paper is a picture of Jesus (Yahshua). When I got Jesus(Yahshua) back where He belonged, then our country just came together.’

This one is worthy of forwarding.
