Big Parties For Big Game

Big Parties For Big Game

Posted: Updated:
DAPHNE, Alabama -

I started my trip at this house on Pontchartrain Loop in Daphne. It’s where every play is tied to a superstition about assigned seats.

“I usually sit here, my dad's over there everybody usually has the same seat we feel like if we get out of place  we may bring some bad karma on the team,” says R.E.J. Jones.  When you watch a game this fierce you have to try and keep your emotions in check or risk disappointment.

“You get sweaty palms, your stomach starts to hurt just like when I played high school football man,” says Ron Jones.  These parties are easy to spot.  If there are more than three cars in the driveway on a Saturday afternoon there are people watching the game inside.  It's unbridled passion and a reason to celebrate no matter what happens on the field.

“It's the southern way, SEC football, and it's fun, what more do you need fun,” says Alabama fan Heather Minshew.
