The plan was go to work early so I could get a parking spot before the fans arrived for the A-Day scrimmage game. Around 11:30 I decided I should take a break from grading and make a donation to the Theta Tau Charity Raffle. Then I thought, it was too nice of a day not to go check out the action on the Quad. The next thing you know I am in the nosebleed section of the northwest corner of Bryant Denny Stadium and it is already half-time and I really do have over 100 exams to grade.
So I go back to my office to find a voice mail informing me that I won!
Now the plan is to see how close they are to funding the dog and if necessary put the football back on the market to raise some more money. Why you ask? Because it is what I require of myself (darn do-gooder gene) . . . just like getting back to grading these exams.
