The Third Saturday in October

Today all over the South, football fans prepare for an annual Religious Rite. Pregame preperation, begun days before is now in full swing. Rocky Top blares, and the Tide Rolls. Feasts that make a November Thursday pale in comparison are consumed. War Paint is painted. War dances danced.

Today... is UT versus Alabama. The Crimson Tide versus the Volunteers.

If that doesn't give you chills... Then I pity you. Maybe soccer is on some other channel.
