Cranks My Tractor

The Friday before the game, my second daughter had an official visit scheduled to tour the University of Alabama with her mother.  She wants to study history and through her hard work and excellent test scores she has been offered a full academic scholarship to the University of Alabama.

She loved her visit and the people there showed her The Process of working hard, helping people reach their goals, being kind and generous and exhibiting these qualities to others.

After hearing our story, those folks at the Office of Admissions gave us four tickets.  A fellow named Paul just put them in an envelope and gave them to us.

The next day was game day and even though we had been given four tickets, the $600 still was eating at me.  Tim, the fellow who runs the ticket office had told me to stop by and see him at “Gate 32” before the game and he would see what he could do.

I did.

Tim was kind and told me to wait for ten minutes.

Tim went upstairs to talk to the Tennessee ticket fellow and they figured out that the tickets I had originally purchased were from a Tennessee fan who was unable to travel to Alabama for the game.
