I've had a lot of questions about the forefinger from readers who are not from this area.
Last year was the thumb year, meaning Auburn had 5 wins over Alabama in the Iron Bowl. Hold up one hand with 4 fingers showing.... what's missing?? The Thumb!
Now hold up the other hand along with the first hand. Show 1 finger. Which finger is it? FOREFINGER!! Meaning 6 wins over Alabama!
This year was a really great game with Auburn winning 17-10!
Last week at school before we let out for the Thanksgiving holiday, co-teacher and I had the students claim their team (Alabama or Auburn) along with their prediction of the outcome. We had all kinds of predicted scores including one that was 1001-100. However we did have ONE student hit on the correct winner and score. It was our ELL student, Jose*!
