Being a Bama fan isn’t something you do every once in a while; it’s a way of life. For those of us that bleed Crimson, cheering on our Tide is the Alpha and Omega – the beginning and the end of everything.
Our homes and workplaces are decorated with Alabama-themed memorabilia and Daniel A. Moore paintings. Our cars sport three or more items emblazoned with a Big AL logo, because let’s face it, we don’t know how to just put one sticker on our back window.
If we see someone in Alabama attire, whether we’re in Tuscaloosa or on a cruise in Alaska (true story), we always give a big ROLL TIDE and expect one in return. In fact, the phrase has become our own form of punctuation:
“I just ACED that test! ROLL TIDE!” or “She said YES! ROLL TIDE!”
We all agree that we are a part of the best fan base in America. From academics to athletics to the inevitable after parties, to the rich history and traditions that have been passed down through generations, we know that Alabama Crimson Tide fans are without a doubt the luckiest in the world.
Not only do we get to experience the glory of a Crimson Tide victory on the football field, we also are fortunate enough to be a part of all that Alabama fandom has to offer. While most of us will at some point attend a home game at Bryant-Denny Stadium, there are so many other things that Bama fans should make a point to do during their lifetimes.
Here is BamaHammer’s list of the top things all Alabama fans MUST do….or a Bucket List, if you will.
For some of us, this list brings back happy memories of our time at the Capstone, whether for college or good times (or both, in many cases). For the younger generation, this could be your diving board into the world of Crimson everything.
Whether you’re reliving your glory days or about to begin an adventure through God’s Country we affectionately call TitleTown, our Bucket List will serve as your guide to all things Alabama Crimson Tide.
If somehow there’s a Must Do or a Favorite that we missed, be sure to let us know in the comments or tweet us at @Bama_Hammer. We would love to hear what makes your trips to Tuscaloosa special.
Let’s get this party started! In no particular order, we give you the Bama Bucket List: 25 Things All Tide Fans Must Do Before They Die.
