Roll Tide!

That was a nail-biter last night!

Overlooking, for the moment, that the Tide gave up a 21-0 lead to be losing in the final seconds, the game had a beautiful ending.

The Alabama offense raced out to a 21-0 lead Saturday against Arkansas and scored a game-winning touchdown with eight seconds left in the game to cap a come-from-behind shootout win against the Razorbacks (1-1, 0-1 SEC), 41-38, at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

I watched the game with the local alumni group (and a British friend of mine who likes football and beer), and the place just erupted with the win, thoroughly annoying the natives who don’t get Southerners and their college football (honestly, Hughes Stadium, where the CSU Rams play, looks like something one of our high school teams might call home).

Ending the evening with more beer, two plates of chili cheese fries, and a Latina whose assets kept wanting to tumble out the top of her dress was a nice bonus.

Update: You can see the game winning play here, for the time being.
