Cranks My Tractor

Published: Thursday, November 7, 2013 at 10:35 AM.

My most recent experience with The Process was in Tuscaloosa, Alabama on the weekend of the Alabama-Tennessee game, but didn’t involve anything that Coach Saban did before or during the game.

It involved me getting inside to see the game.  Therefore, I’m very sure that it (The Process) was at the University of Alabama before Nick Saban was.

Living out of state, I can generally get to one Alabama game each year.  My main reason for going is not to see the game, but to see my oldest daughter who is a junior at the University of Alabama.  (She presently has a 4.0 and I want to say “Summa Cum Laude Mercy” more than I want to say “Roll Tide.”)

We paid too much for our four tickets back in July from one of those online ticket sales places.  If you want to go to just one game, you almost have to do that.  We paid about double what the tickets were worth.  In other words, we invested somewhere around $600 just to be able to see the Alabama-Tennessee game.

A couple of nights before our flight South, we realized we could not find the tickets.  We were sick, there was yelling and there was crying.  It was the Alabama-Tennessee game and we did want to go and it was $600 down the drain.

We came to the conclusion that the envelope containing the tickets had been thrown away by mistake.

There was still sickness, yelling and crying.
