Remember that scene in Fever Pitch where Ben's Red Sox tickets arrive? He runs outside in his boxers to get them, and then hugs the UPS guy. And then he opens the box and he and his friends smell the ticket sheets and he says, "This smells like the year."
Yep, that's what today feels like. It's like Christmas for us Alabama fans - the tickets have arrived!
It's one of the signs that football season is upon us. Shark Week, the Little League World Series, and, of course, the arrival of the tickets.
Let the Road to 16 begin.
