Just noticed your Avi War, did you go to this?
Oh yeah. Got a couple of great shots of the thing: Image: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BIVKqfTCYAAcIBX.jpg Image: http://distilleryimage9.ak.instagram.com/643cb0e4aa0e11e2a9ed22000a1fb773_6.jpg
And here's a Vine of people throwing rolls at each other when we were supposed to be paying attention to the cheerleaders: LINK
Pretty sad (because it's the last time, not the event or turnout or anything) just to look at all those pictures.
Here's the thing, though, it wasn't really that sad for all of us. I posted this on Reddit last night...
Had an interesting thought while I was there today: All of the money that the local businesses, the ticket office, area hotels (all were sold out this weekend) and other vendors wouldn't have happened this weekend if the trees were going to live.
We would've had A-Day, and it would've been like every other one we've had.
But today was so incredible, one of the best ever days for Auburn people...and it's all because a lunatic rival fan poisoning the trees because he was upset about 2010.
We're still going to roll everything in sight when we win, no matter what's on the corner of College and Magnolia in the future. But it was a great last day with those two trees, and it wouldn't have happened if Updyke just stayed in Dadeville that day.
So many people today in Auburn got a lot of benefit from another man's act of stupidity.
Take that, Harvey. War Damn Eagle.
I was about to say....Sorry War, heard about the tree. Glad y'all got to roll that sucker one more time.
There will be other trees. And, heck, we'll roll whatever's nearby if we win a few games this season (they're replanting trees and redoing the whole area after this season).
I mean, we were rolling bushes and other trees and even the freaking street signs, as you can see from Jumbeaux's picture. (I'm one of the white dots to the right of the stage, right by Toomer's Drugs.)
