What is a Paladin? Sooooooo glad you asked!
And for those of you who didn't ask, we'll pretend you did, since it's my Blog
Websters defines a Paladin as: 1 : a trusted military leader (as for a medieval prince) 2 : a leading champion of a cause
Well, now I know.
Me and Lesha
This is an Auburn tradition which began in the early 1960s when Auburn players would walk from Sewell Hall to the football stadium and fans would line Donahue Drive to wish them well. Over the years the Tiger Walk has grown into a major part of game day at Auburn, so much so that it is listed on the players' game weekend itinerary. The largest Tiger Walk is believed to have taken place prior to the 1989 Alabama game when more than 20,000 well wishers lined the street. Every Tiger Walk prior to home games draws thousands and over the last couple of years the Tiger Walk has become a standard as Auburn football players enter stadiums on the road. Tiger Walk is two hours before kickoff for every game.
We did get High 5's from the players as well.
I love her BUNCHES even in Crimson and White =)
Yes, all the Auburn pics were taken the same day and yes, I do have on 2 different shirts.
It was a beautiful HOT sunny day in Auburn Saturday, with extra emphasis on HOT.
I started out with the orange fleece, but got hot really fast so I went to the Haley Center Bookstore and bought a really cute navy blue t-shirt.
It was nice spending time with all of them.
I (cough)(cough) am the oldest.
You can only imagine the grief he has endured from us =)
Oh yeah, I bought me 10 pair of really, really cute socks at Target today. That made me happy. I can't wait to wear them. =)
Have a great week, Friends.
Love you all!
