Alabama vs. Auburn


Don’t call the house tomorrow afternoon until the game is over. Mr. Sheila and I will be glued to the television set hoping that a miracle will happen and that our Alma Mater’s football team coached by the nation’s cutest coach might pull it out. Coach Mike Shula and his run-it-up-the-middle strategy has exhausted my loyalty, but just say Bear Bryant has talked to Jesus and arranged that miracle, then and only then will I give the cutie-pie coach another chance. Auburn has won the last four games, and thus there’s a saying down here in the Heart of Dixie, “Fear the Thumb.” Sheila’s prediction: Auburn 34. Alabama 17.

"Mr. Sheila?" Urg.

The famous baseball player Joe DiMaggio hated to be called "Mr. Marilyn Monroe" when he was married to her.

Hi Jay. I vacillate between called my husband by his real name or just my husband or in this case, my attempt to be clever.
