My grandparents live in this incredible home, looks something straight out of a Southern Living magazine. Did I mention the home sat on a golf course right in the valley of the incredibly gorgeous Smokey Mountains. Oh no, not The
Smokey’s set in the Carolina’s, but right down the highway from Neyland Stadium, in Townsend TN.
My grandpa isn’t a die-hard Vols fan, but living there for the past 15 years, it somehow has seeped into his blood to cheer for the Rocky Top and he makes sure we know who will supposedly “win” every time the school’s match up for some type of game. He does the same thing when it comes to Auburn and that’s why we hate Tennessee even more…
He does it to get our crimson blood boiling….
Being married to a former Alabama football player, I don’t really have a choice but to HATE the Tennessee Volunteers either. I mean Simeon hates Tennessee so much, he’d rather admit he loved Auburn than EVER join in the singing of “Good ole Rocky Top”! Yesterday he joined former Tennessee Volunteer Jason Swain on Knoxville’s sports radio 1190am and took some valuable time to talk trash about their past playing against each other and then of course guaranteed each other a butt whoppin’ this weekend coming up!
We all know Coach Saban has got our boys ready, and this Saturday night I will be cheering so loud you all will probably be able to hear me from wherever you are watching this historic rivalry… Roll Tide!
