This happened.

In case anyone missed it (which I doubt was possible for anyone living in America, especially Alabama), Auburn won the national championship.

It was a BIG DEAL. Even for those of us who live on the other side of the world.

We started off by inviting all of our Auburn friends (and there are quite a few of us over here, something close to 20) over to our house on Monday night for a chili “tailgate.” We downloaded a few games from earlier this season and had them running all night. I wish I had taken a picture of the decor, but let me assure you that we were decked out, thanks to a gift of Auburn gear (tablecloth, napkins, cups, balloons!) from a friend who was here last year.

We woke up first thing Tuesday morning and gathered at another friend’s house to watch the actual game. Here are Meg and Lauren, decked out.

We projected the game onto a blank wall and all 20(ish) of us sprawled out all over the room.

Things started off pretty well for the Tigers…

…but got tense before it was all over.

But when all was said and done, and Auburn was (officially, this time) the national champion, there was joy that could not be contained.

The Auburn girls (plus Sarah, who we’re working very hard to convert).

Our East Asia Auburn family.

War Eagle!!

    Glad you got to watch it! I guess slingbox or something?

    Congrats on the national title. As you probably know, my girlfriend Kellie is an Auburn fan, too, and she was super excited!

    How wonderful to celebrate with 20 people all the way across the world!!! Looks like ya’ll had a blast! So happy that Mitch and Michael go to talk during and after the game; he sure misses having you around to hash things out with. War Eagle!

    Slingbox–it is definitely one of the best inventions ever (at least when you live overseas)! Amanda, Michael was really glad to talk with Mitch during the game, too. I love that we are celebrating in all the different far-flung corners of the globe/America!
