Roll Tide Everyone!
I hope everyone had an enjoyable and safe Christmas holiday. The Playoffs start on New Year’s Day with Alabama facing Clemson for Part III. Kickoff is at 7:45 PM. I would expect another nail biting, down to the final minute type game. Be sure to come out to one of our official watch locations and support BAMA and the local Chicago Alumni Chapter. Stop by our table for memberships and BAMA merchandise. All proceeds support our Chapter scholarships.
For those attending at Another Round, there will be a special raffle drawing for a commemorative book recapping the 1992 National Championship Season. The book is autographed by Antonio Langham, who scored the winning touchdown with a pick 6 in the first SEC Championship game.
Tide Trivia: What was Bama’s first bowl game? When was Bama’s first national championship?
