Since the last time I opened the ol' mailbag to reveal the nuggets that fans of the Auburn Tigers had left in my e-mail in-box, I have been sent another electronic correspondence from a booster of the Plainsmen, which I received this morning after being out of the office all day on Thursday:
Just thought I would let you know that the NCAA has declared Cam Newton eligible. Also, if you didn't know Auburn beat bama last week. WAR EAGLE you piece of crap.
Thanks, _______! Yes, I saw both the Iron Bowl and the recent news reports, but I appreciate the heads up, just the same.
While I will be rooting for South Carolina tomorrow, I wish Auburn good luck and I fully expect to see the Tigers represent the SEC in the national championship game. You have an exceptional team there.
Please accept my best wishes for a merry Christmas and a happy new year for your family and you.
For what it's worth, we have plenty heated rivalries with Florida, Georgia Tech, South Carolina, and Tennessee, and their fans don't do this.
