I ‘m sitting here about to go nuts. I so wish I was in Pasadena right now. I’ve been messaging back and forth with my brother Charlie. He said he was about to throw up. We were both at the Immaculate Deflection and the Got a Second games plus the SEC Championship. We both wish we were there.

Finally the kick off. Courso picked FSU. Tim Tebow picked FSU. Lou Holtz picked Auburn. Go Lou.

I’ve logged on to the great ESPN3.com. So far it sucks. I have not been able to connect to one stream. I switched to Safari and finally able to watch with the Auburn IMG network sound. Guess Google Chrome sucks not ESPN3.

I feel so connected. Got a Bluetooth speaker now blaring the Auburn radio feed, Charlie and I are messaging and I’m about 10 seconds ahead of his DirecTV.

I’m not going to waste my time updating the site because I’m too busy messaging Charlie.

Wow. Auburn has forced another punt. Hopefully this time we won’t get a penalty.

WOW. Auburn now leads 14-3. Can it last? I don’t think my heart can take it.

Looks like it’s time for Florida State to get an injury to stop Auburn’s hurry up offense.

TOUCHDOWN AUBURN…….. 21-3. Am I dreaming…….

We got a turnover. Miss a field goal. Got hoodwinked by a fake punk. 21-10 at halftime.

Tonight I hope to enjoy another Pumpkin Ale. I’ve got Weyebacher Pumpkin Ale. I was going to drink it after the SEC Championship but left it at Charlie’s. I picked it up at Christmas so I’m ready to drink it. I’ve enjoyed a different pumpkin ale with each Auburn win.

I’m really looking forward to drinking that Weyerbacher in celebration. When the season stated I didn’t think there was that many pumpkin ales out there or at least available in the Augusta market.

Here’s what their website says: Like a pyramid for a pharaoh, we set out to make a bold monument for The King of the Pumpkins!
This 8.0% ABV pumpkin ale is the mother of all pumpkin ales. It is heartier, spicier, and more “caramelly” and “pumpkiny” than its faint brethren! We have added lots of pumpkin along with cinnamon, nutmeg and a touch of cardamom and clove giving this beer a spicy, full-bodied flavor. This truly is an Imperial Pumpkin Ale. Perfect finisher on a cool autumn night, or match it up with a slice of pumpkin pie and fresh whipped cream. It is available August through November.

It’s not an Autumn night. It’s about 20 degrees and headed to 12 degrees tonight. But I’m ready for the mother of all pumpkin ales.

I’m so glad I don’t have to listen to Brent Musburger.

Okay. We hold them to a field goal with about 5 minutes in the 3rd quarter. But we haven’t exactly scored in the second half yet.

15:00 to go. No matter what Auburn wasn’t supposed to be here. This is all gravy. This might be the best 15 minutes of Auburn Football History or the worst. We are in the National Championship and that’s what matter. I love this team.

Not looking good. It’s 21-20. We’re ahead but Florida State is moving the ball. We aren’t. Stupid penalties. Missed catches. Is the amazing season over?

Got less than 5 minutes. Auburn settles for a field goal.

24-20.

Oooopps. Now 27-24. A 102 yard run back. Is the dream over? Next 4:31 will determine it. Auburn scored a touchdown. I’m blubbering like a baby. But looks like it’s been all for naught. Now 34-31.

Well. It was a great season. Florida State beat us but did not defeat us.

This was a great season. This is the best beer of the collection I had. Much darker tasting but no bitterness. I think I might have saved the best for last. It’s got more heavy Belgian like mouthfeel. Nothing like an American ale. Says it’s got pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and cloves. I think the cinnamon takes a back seat to the cloves. The aftertaste is a bit lingering and heavy. I think I am enjoying this on what is the coldest night of the year…. in more ways than one.

I’m proud of my Auburn team. They almost did it. Who in the heck would think we would made it this far.

I’m not going to fault anyone. They are still champions. War Damn Eagle.
