Needless to say, if you live in the south, you'll admit that things are a bit crazy around here. There's this white, fluffy stuff floating in the air. Is that red neck dandruff? Cause when it hits the ground it doesn't really stick. And the schools were pre emptively closed yesterday- due to the bad weather. School closings for Thursday were announced Wednesday afternoon before a single flake had hit the ground.
Honestly, schools weren't closed Thursday because the weather was THAT bad (at least not in Birmingham). They were closed because Thursday was the BCS Game. The National Champshionship game. THE GAME for Alabama Fans. I'm not a huge college football fan but I do understand that Alabama playing in the National Championship game is nothing short of earth shattering and monumental. It belongs up there with walking on the moon and the invention of penicillin. In fact, sources tell me, there was a line about a quarter mile long outside of Academy Sports around midnight last night just so people could get their locker room championship t-shirts and hats. It was colder than Voldemort's heart last night! But, alas, one can't be a true Alabama fan without the most up to date Alabama regalia. And one must remember these were sanctum sanctorum t-shirts and hats.
Ok. Ok. I kid. I kid.
Seriously, I am happy that Alabama won (because I wouldn't want to see what a losing hangover looks like) and also because of the fact that my work didn't open until noon today because of the....uh...snow. Yeah.
