Football Season Countdown

Categories: Uncategorized

4 days until kickoff. Are you ready for football season?

Here in the great state of Alabama, football has to be one of the most revered of college sports. And it’s that crazy time of the year again. It’s when all your plans revolve around kickoff time. If you want to get some great shopping in, try hitting the mall around Alabama/Auburn kick off time on a Saturday. The place clears out about 30 minutes before the game! But if you plan on heading to a sports bar, you better remember whether or not there is a big game on, or you won’t be able to find a seat.

And then there is the experience of going to the game. There’s nothing like it. Tailgating starts hours before kickoff. Whether it’s a flood of orange and blue, or a sea of crimson and houndstooth, people come in droves. Fans come together to support their teams, and there is a sense of camaraderie everywhere.  Even if you don’t have tickets, you can watch the game from a television setup outside of a family RV and still hear the roar of the crowd in the stadium. And when the home team brings it in for the win, the stadium erupts with thunderous excitement.

Don’t have tickets to the big game? You don’t have to miss out on the pre-game experience. With a natural gas grill, you can achieve the college tailgating atmosphere right in your own backyard. And the convenience of natural gas will earn you the title of Most Valuable Griller. Who wants to miss any of the action on the field because you had to make a run to the store to refill your propane tank or buy more charcoal?

From the time the season is over, people start counting the days until the season kicks off again. Whether you pledge allegiance to the Tigers or the Tide, nearly every Alabamian has picked a side. It doesn’t matter if you’re a football fan or not, in Alabama you have to choose a team.  Here at Alagasco, we are a family divided.  Roll Tide and War Eagle!
