Freeing "Dixieland Delight" was probably more exciting to Alabama fans than winning a national championship. OK, maybe I'm being a little dramatic, but nothing will ever beat the feeling of the fourth quarter of the Missouri game and hearing the first beat of that song.
If you don't believe me, here are 20 things that were LESS exciting than hearing "Dixieland Delight" playing at Bryant Denny Stadium.
Finding a good parking spot on campus
Waking up and seeing that your class is cancelled
Seeing free T-shirts being passed out
Getting an A on a midterm
Receiving free food
Going to bed before 12 midnight
Doing all your homework BEFORE class
When your parents deposit money in your bank account
Thanksgiving/Christmas/spring and summer break
A gameday in the South
Seeing a dog on campus
Going to Starbucks and seeing no line
Finding the exact quizlet you need
Walking in to a class prepared for a test
Working out... in college...
Talking to your parents on the phone
FaceTiming an old friend from back home
Getting a care package from your parents
Winning a national championship
In case you forgot, these were things that don't even compare to hearing "Dixieland Delight" and actually singing it to the top of your lungs with thousands of people. Now that "Dixie" is free, maybe Alabama fans will now stay for all four quarters.
