Americans are some of the greatest fans in the world, whether it be cheering for their local high school football team on a fall Friday night or traveling half way around the globe to support our Olympians in their pursuit of a gold medal. We are proud of who we are and where we are from and it is part of the fabric of this great nation.
As a fan, I have been blessed to see some great moments in sports. In my lifetime, my hometown Atlanta has hosted the Olympics, two Super Bowls, countless MLB playoff games and World Series, the NCAA Basketball Championships, All Star Games, the list goes on. My favorite teams the Auburn Tigers, the Atlanta Braves, and the Atlanta Falcons have been successful too.
Of all of these sports moments, I have cheered the hardest and longest for the Auburn Tigers. To be an Auburn fan can sometimes be equated to riding a roller coaster, with a lot of high highs and a lot of low lows. I always believed the Auburn Family was a cut above the rest; we try to be very inviting to our football adversaries when they come to campus on game day and with our roller coaster of a past, our fans are humble and proud but without ego. There is always a beverage, a plate of food, and a pleasant conversation about that day’s game when folks come to visit the Auburn campus.
I want to preface these next few statement that everyone in our country has great traditions and many have great legacies but I believe I have found the best of the best in American fans (My Auburn Family, please don’t put me out to pasture, I still think of us as a close second). I had the pleasure of visiting College Station Texas to watch Auburn play Texas A&M at Kyle Field.
