Show Us Your Life: Team/Tailgate Friday - Go Frogs and War Eagle!

This Friday's Show Us Your Life theme at Kelly's Korner is Team/Tailgate post. I went to TCU and Brad went to Auburn, and I feel the need to show off both schools.

TCU Horned Frogs
TCU doesn't even compare to Auburn when it comes to football fans - but I'm proud of my school. And they are ranked in the top 10! These are pictures from various seasons.

After every game, win or lose, the team comes to the student section and sings the Alma Mater and fight song. Here they are after winning the Liberty Bowl in 2002 (I think?).

This is after the homecoming game last year. The floating, paper head is of my friend Rebecca. She couldn't make the trip to Fort Worth but we made sure she was in all of the pictures.

This is my brother before a game several years ago. He was so proud of his sign - I think it got him on ESPN.

Auburn Tigers - War Eagle

If you've never been to an big time SEC game - it's a MUST. I've been to 4 Auburn football games, 2 in Auburn and 2 bowl games. The city of Auburn is just amazing on game day. It's so much fun. I'm sad that we won't be taking a trip out there this year :(

This is my first Auburn game. They played Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl in Orlando.

Second Auburn game, first game in Auburn. Brad and I with Aubie before Tiger Walk.

Tiger Walk. Before each game Auburn fans line the streets and the team walks down the street handing out high fives.

I just love this van. It plays the Auburn fight song.

Game Day was at the Auburn/LSU game last year. Here's the bus behind us.

Second game in Auburn. Look at all of that orange behind us. This was last year at the LSU game. It was such a good game but had such a sad ending.

Don't worry - Emily has outfits for both schools. I even found a TCU cheerleader outfit for her at a consignment sale ($8). Last week she wore her Auburn gear, this week it's TCU.


  1. WAR EAGLE! I love that van's AUsome! I loved going being on campus as a student, especially during game days in the fall...and you are so right, SEC games are really something!

    My husband and I have really enjoyed sharing the Auburn experience with our kids as well...they LOVE every minute of being in "God's country". :) We try to take them to a few games each season.

    Have you ever seen the eagle fly in the stadium before the games? That's one of most favorite traditions of AU football! :)

  2. I love all of our Auburn traditions! WAR EAGLE!
