Usually the first games of the season are givens for the good teams, so who cares to watch them, right? Well, let me tell you....the Mizeranys do! They have all been clamouring over their seats, anxious to see the first game that Saban coaches. Steve was even able to score an extra pair of tickets from work that they are using. He wanted Bennett and me to join him, and after much conversation on all of the reasons why it is a bad idea (she is only 3 mos old, she'll be asleep during most of the game, I will also be asleep during some of the game, etc.), he finally agreed to let us stay home.
However, he wants us to be there in spirit, so I promised to dress Bennett up in Alabama gear. I thought it would be her little onesie that he first bought when we found out we were pregnant. But Myra and Big Lou surprised us with a little cheerleader outfit...the cutest darn thing I have seen. I thought it was going to be big on Bennett since it was a 6 month size, but it fits her well. And if I must say so myself, she looks pretty cute in crimson!
As much as her daddy would love for her to attend Alabama and be a cheerleader there, I am not quite sure that this is her thing. Now she may just be a little young still, but she seems much more interested in her hands than any shaker (or pom pom, as I like to call it). But that is alright, as long as she prefers the Tide to the Tigers, she will be loved by the Mizeranys.
So, ROOOOOOLL TIDE!!
