Alabama National Championship Celebration: 1/09/12
Keith Jackson used to say, “They’re dancing in Eastaboga!” when describing the celebration for a big win by The University of Alabama Crimson Tide. They very well could have been dancing in Eastaboga last night after Alabama’s dominating win over L.S.U., but I know for a fact they were dancing in the streets of Tuscaloosa as well. Fans quickly spilled onto University Boulevard between Egans and The Houndstooth after the clock struck zero, and the celebration of Alabama’s 14th National Championship began.
I was lucky enough to be out there during the celebration after the win against Texas, and I was lucky enough to be out there last night. What made the celebration last night a bit better is that it wasn’t 10 degrees outside like it was two years ago during the Texas celebration. I nearly went to New Orleans to be in there for the championship atmosphere, but when those plans fell through… I knew I didn’t want to be any other place than Tuscaloosa, Alabama. I really do love this city, and nights like this one make it extra special.
