    First Bama game you ever watched?

    What's the first Bama game you ever watched?

    Mine was Bama vs USC 1977.

    I was 8 yrs old, didn't know who the heck USC was but I think before I even watched a game of football I knew who The Bear was.

    A vague, forgotten game: 1979 Sugar Bowl.

    ( I remember the goal line stand but didn't realize the accomplishment at the time).

    First game I can remember watching was probably the 1990 Iron Bowl on TV (family moved to Alabama from South Carolina in 89, so prior to then, we didn't watch much football...certainly no Bama games)
    First game in person was a Vandy game (1998?) in Birmingham.
    First game at BDS was the 2000 Iron Bowl.

    1970 Bluebonnet Bowl, Bama vs Oklahoma, 24-24 tie...I remember my Mom and Dad would say, "There's the Bear..."...I kept trying to find him, thinking he was one of the officials before my Dad explained it fully and pointed him out to me...even at 8 years old I was impressed that my parents thought so highly of him that he must be a pretty good man.

    Re: First Bama game you ever watched?

    Hmm...I wasn't a big football fan but I went to an iron bowl party with my boyfriend (now husband). It was when Shula was there, so you know the outcome. Haha.

    I didn't become an avid fan till Saban's first year. Now I can't ever miss watching a game.


    Now first game we went to was the Mississippi State game in 2008.

    First game I truly remember was the 1992 National Championship. I was 8 and I remember everyone going insane when Teague stripped the ball. The emotion in the room after that play is probably what sucked me into being a lifelong fan.
    Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice? Congratulations, you'd probably make a pretty good con-man.

    The first Alabama play I remember is Freddie Milons taking a reverse or something like that to the house. I can't remember for the life of me who it was against. I am only 21...so I am just now getting to enjoy Alabama football.

    Funny. Me too. I was 11. I remember sitting in the floor at my grandmother's house watching it.
