I've been staying away from this thread, because its depressing to think that the same tree my dad rolled when he was a student, and the same tree my dad took me to after all of the thrilling victories throughout my childhood, and the same tree I rolled throughout my Auburn career, is about to be gone, because some psycho alabama fan couldn't handle AU beating his school, and going on to win a national championship. There's so much hatred in our country, and around the world, it's disgusting. Peace is a thing of the past.
With that being said, the national championship rolling at Toomers was special.
My best was December 2, 1989 - the first year Alabama came to Auburn, and lost!! I made the mistake (or was it?) of parking downtown, and when I tried to get to the car following the game -- forget it!!! A sea of white tissue and impossible-for-hours road blockage made leaving impossible, so a good, long evening in Auburn was enjoyed.
I love December 2, 1989!!! Thank you, Coach Dye!

Seeing as we have been here 20 years, there are just too many memories to list but I'll try a couple.
First time there for me was after the Florida game in '94. Nothing like seeing drunk International students chanting "it's great to be an Auburn Tiger" right next to little old ladies in Auburn gear wading through the crowd. I remember thinking to myself "I might end up liking this place." What an understatement.
Next best was after the National Championship. I had an opportunity to go but thought to myself if we win there is no other place I'd rather be than Auburn and Toomer's so I passed. I'm glad that I did. No work the next day, little kids that were obviously woken up by their parents on the middle night...words cannot describe it. My father-in-law had gotten killed in a hunting accident the day before the Georgia game (they lived in Auburn by then) and I swear he helped us beat UGA and Alabama. The 2010 team helped my family heal in ways they will never know.
My favorite part of Toomer's will never die, and that is seeing friends and making new ones every time we go. I'm looking forward to that part for years to come.
