When it comes to football Gavin has two favorite teams. For professional football it is no surprise that he has learned from his dad to be a Pittsburgh Steelers fan. When it comes to college, he is BAMA all the way. Roll Tide Roll.
Gavin plays football nearly every day at our park and the boys all call him Bama for a nickname. He is in love with Alabama football. He was so mad when they lost back in November to LSU in a double overtime...and even more upset that he had to watch it from my iphone at a Taylor Swift concert. When we found out they were playing each other again for the championship title Bowl Game....Gavin was ecstatic. 

Many of Franks co-workers are BAMA fans. That would only make sense since they live in Alabama. One of Franks co-workers was especially proud that Gavin was sticking up for his team. He sent Gavin a shirt and he wore it proudly the morning of the Bowl game to school. He was made fun of and told to watch out for the tigers because he was about to get attacked. He was roared at and told there was NO way his team was winning. He laughed and stood strong in his belief that they would win. Gavin asked for special permission to stay up late to watch the game- we let him. His excitement had us all excited to root for his team. I even put an "A" on our Chicken pot pie for dinner.

BAMA WON. And he asked us to wash his BAMA shirt so he could wear it to school again the next day. HA! HA! HA! This kid is not competitive at all when it comes to sports.

Gavin received a package in the mail last weekend.

He was VERY Excited!!

A Bama National Champion shirt.

He put it on right away and pretty much has been wearing it ever since.

Thank you Joe for your thoughtfulness. He clearly LOVES it!!!

Roll Tide Roll!!!!
