Auburn vs. LSU - We Won!!!
Na, na, na, na, boo, boo, - We Won! By at least 10 points, too (an inside joke).
Paw Paw won two tickets to the Auburn/LSU basketball game today and Paige, her mommy and I went along and shopped while her daddy and her Paw Paw went to the game. We shopped in downtown Auburn and had a great time. Had a lemonade and ice cream at Toomer's and everything!
And, of course, I had my camera with me and took lots of pics. We HAD to get one in front of this sign at Samford Hall which is such a tradition at Auburn.
Thought you might like a little history I found on Samford Hall. **Originally, Samford Hall WAS the university, housing classes until 1969, when it became solely the university admin headquarters. It was named for Ala. Gov. William James Samford, who attended Auburn in 1860-61.
The first campus building, Old Main, burned in 1887, leaving nothing but brick and ashes - some of the brick was used in the foundation of Samford Hall. The legend that a number of students led a cow through the attic and into the bell tower in the 1920s remains unsubstantiated, but it IS true that, in the dead of night, a group of enterprising 1977 students, armed with paint, cardboard and tape, turned the stately clock into a Mickey Mouse watch face! **
