There Are Rivalries And Then There's This

Check this out from RammerJammerYellowHammer.

If you're from the Northeast and you think that the Penn-Princeton game is the ultimate in hoops rivalries or that the Army-Navy game is the ultimate football rivalry, you don't live in SEC country, where apparently the parties are more spectacular and the rivalries are more intense.

'Bama might be favored to win this game, but you have to love the courage of the one Auburn kid who is sitting by his lonesome. Down in Tuscaloosa, wearing an Auburn sweatshirt amid all those Crimson Tide fans (most of whom apparently did not feel strongly enough to wear their favorite school's colors) may not be akin to the lone student standing in front of the tanks in Tianananmen Square 16 years ago, but it is an act of courage nonetheless.

Warren St. John of the RammerJammerYellowHammer blog is great at finding fun pictures, and this is a can't miss.
