    Re: First Bama game you ever watched?

    I can't remember the first game I watched on tv. The first game I saw in person was the Alabama vs. Nebraska game in the Sugar Bowl, January 1, 1966.

    Re: First Bama game you ever watched?

    I know I had a working knowledge of Bama football before this, but my first clear recollection of any of Bama's games would be around the '99 Season. I was seven at the time, and for some reason that season stood out to me so much that I can tell you some of the most remote details about the circumstances surrounding the games, but I can't remember anything prior to that.

    Re: First Bama game you ever watched?

    '85 Iron Bowl with Van Tiffin's kick to win the game when I was 5. My parents were rooting for Auburn, so I was playing the devil's advocate and rooted for 'Bama. After the game-winning kick, I was so hyped that I chose Alabama as "my team" and never looked back. Best decision ever, I might add.

    First time I ever saw them live was at Bryant-Denny in '06 against Vandy(sadly, I'd been to two games at the Barn way before finally seeing a game in Tuscaloosa including the Iron Bowl the previous year where Brodie got sacked into oblivion).

    Bama and Georgia at a 55,000 seat BDS in the early 70s. It was a nail biter that Bama pulled out in the fourth quarter. I don't remember much about the game except it was fun.

    Re: First Bama game you ever watched?

    I have memories of watching the '85 Iron Bowl (I was eight at the time) Really wasn't until my teens I started really watching/keeping up with Bama Football. First game I attended was Bama vs. Southern Miss at Legion Field (in '97, I think).

    Re: First Bama game you ever watched?

    I'm pretty sure I watched all or parts of some games in the early 70s (not easy in those days - no satellite or cable and most teams only got 2-3 televised games each season). But the first one I really remember was the 73 Sugar Bowl against ND. UGH!!

    That's the first game I remember going to and actually watching, I was 7. My Dad said he took me to a couple of Tuscaloosa (he was still in school) games in 1956 when I was 2, but I don't remember them. My Mom is from Semmes, so we always went to the Ladd Stadium games back then. Gave us a reason to drive down from Montgomery (b4 the Interstate) and visit the grandparents.

    Re: First Bama game you ever watched?

    I don't remember much because I was 8 but the first game I remember watching was the 1999 game against Florida in the swamp. Living in Kentucky and North Carolina college football wasn't that big so I wasn't as into it when I was young. But I also remember celebrating when we took the lead against Oklahoma in on of the early 2000 games and cheering that we were gonna beat the #1 team.....I was slightly off!

    Alabama vs. Miami for the 1992 national title is the first one I have any memory of.

    Re: First Bama game you ever watched?

    My earliest memory is the 1965 Orange Bowl. The only play I remember is TD that we were robbed of on the QB sneak by Joe Willie. I remember by parents and friends that were watching the game with us being so upset because it was obvious that he scored. One of their players even later said that he knew Joe scored because he was laying in the end zone and Joe was laying on top of him. It was the play that cost us the 1964 Championship. Read about the game here: http://www.rollbamaroll.com/2009/12/...65-orange-bowl

    My first game to attend was as a freshman at the Capstone in 1974. It was our first home game that year was against Southern Miss in BDS (Denny Stadium then) and we won 52-0! It was great! I was there later that year when we pulled out a miracle finish to be a bad FSU team 8-7 (they had lost something like 16 in a row). That was a magical season...until once again we lost to ND to lose another title (Orange Bowl - lost 11 to 13). That is why so many of us want to meet them for the Championship this year...but bring on the best and let's beat 'em. I would love to see us shutdown the Ducks!

    Re: First Bama game you ever watched?

    The first Bama game I ever attended in person was the 1998 opener against BYU when Shaun Alexander had a field day and I was a freshman at the Capstone! I know I watched/listened to many many games in the '80s, but the first game I remember bits and pieces of was the 1985 Iron Bowl and the kick...RTR!
