I'm gonna share two. My first is the 2003 Iron Bowl that I watched with my aunt who was "Bammer" as it gets. She was die hard, loud, and proud. We lost her to cancer in early 2010, right after Alabama won their National Championship. She was too gone with cancer to rub it in and died on January 24th. We would always go back and forth and that 2003 game was a classic battle between us. I loved every minute. I just wish I would have gotten the chance to rub in our National Championship because I know she would have taken it in stride. She could dish it out, but also was a good sport and could take it as well.
My other one was in 2006. I got into the student section for the Iron Bowl and got cussed like there was no tomorrow. I was loud and proud and let all the Alabama students around me know when Auburn made a big play. Thankfully Auburn was able to pull out the win and I was left to celebrate with a handful of Auburn diehards that were in the student section with me. I've never had more fun shutting up a group of people in my entire life. All the people with big mouths weren't around in the end when I was leading the few Auburn troops around me in "rammer jammer, yellow hammer, go to hell Alabama!" But those two would be the tops on my list.

My favorite Auburn memory was when I paid my sons last Sigma Nu bill.
We had some UGA loud mouths in our section during that game I wrote about. For some reason they got really quiet by the end of the game. Everyone let them have it on their way out of the stadium.

In 1987, the Sugar Bowl bound Auburn Tigers played North Carolina in Chapel Hill. The game was played on the first weekend in October and the weather was expected to be somewhere in the mid 80's. Thousands of us Auburn fans drove up for the game. Nobody brought more than a light jacket or sweater; most didn't have that. As you can already guess the afternoon game time temperature was about 45 degrees with a biting breeze.
I suggested to my group that we go to the campus bookstore and get some Carolina sweatshirts and other warm gear. When we got to the bookstore, it was covered up with Auburn fans. I was able to get one of the few remaining sweatshirts. My wife got a sweatshirt and some leggings.
To this day I wish I had a camera, because our Auburn visitors' section looked way more Carolina blue than any other in the stadium. My brother-in-law (also an Auburn graduate) broke up the group sitting around us when he said, "It's a good damn thing we're not in Tuscaloosa because we'd just have to freeze to death!"
The good news is Auburn won the ball game. The lengths we won't go to for our beloved Tigers.

My favorite memory has to be the feeling I got when Wes Byrum's kick went thru the uprights against Oregon and sharing that moment with my father right outside of the stadium (tickets were just too much for us to get in).
My fondest memory was Fl at Auburn 2006. It was my first Auburn game. I just got out of the navy two days prior and my brother and I were in the student section when AU blocked the punt and Tre Smith recovered and flipped into the endzone for the TD. What a great first game to attend IMO!
All of them but if I had to pick just one, the Kodi Burns speech when we was moved to WR. Believe that day showed what being an Auburn man is all about. The ultimate team player.
WE COMING . WAR EAGLE !
I Believe Auburn and Love IT...4 Life!
You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
