  1. Thou shalt wear team colors. But think twice before adorning yourself with body paint—you don’t want to be the Internet photo that goes viral.

  2. Thou shalt know—and sing—your team’s fight song from beginning to end. Sure, you can “watermelon watermelon” your way through the alma mater, but not memorizing the fight song is a fan failure.

  3. Thou shalt keep your language clean (unless, of course, the quarterback fumbles on fourth and goal).

  4. Thou shalt support the coach. Even when his calls are questionable.

  5. Thou shalt be respectful to visiting teams. Remember: Southern ladies and gentlemen never boo.

  6. Thou shalt set up a tailgate no fewer than three hours before kickoff (six if it’s a night game). Table linens and matching huggers encouraged, but not required.

  7. Thou shalt theme your tailgate food around the visiting rival. Gator bites, anyone?

  8. Thou shalt stay through the fourth quarter—rain or shine. That’s what ponchos are for, y’all.

  9. Thou shalt respect the solemnity of Game Day by planning weddings, births, and other life events around the football schedule.

  10. Thou shalt not covet other teams’ bowl games, national championships, or Heisman Trophy wins. There’s always next year.

My son's getting so big. He's incredibly smart and advanced. Even for a 5 month old.

She continues to amaze me. She finds time to work all the time and cure disease and still be home for dinner each night. I've been painting and sketching more than I ever did, even back in college. I think she's my muse.

Shannon asked me about taking them down for Easter. I'm not sure about going down. Sissy's in one of her moods lately.

I need to go, he's crawled out of the room.

Ellie's birthday is today. She's not home yet, still working too hard. I'm bringing her dinner and we're going to have a quiet night in.

She's getting so beautiful.

I think her parents worry as much as I do about her. They've been insisting that we go over.

But it does get her off her feet. She pushes herself too hard.

Ellie is on this, so I've decided to join.

It'll be neat.
