The Auburn spirit is one that you automatically notice. Everybody (fans, students, Alumni) all have a love for Auburn that I have never seen before. I know it sounds odd but we are one big family. Through the scandels and now the heart break of Toomers Corner, the family has stuck together.
Toomers Corner is where the Auburn Family goes to celebrate. It can be a football win over Bama, a swim meet, and even graduation. It is tradition to roll the tree for any type of celebration. It is really something you have to see in person and be a part of to really get the understanding and concept of what it is to be an Auburn fan.When you are a student there you dream of taking your kids to Toomers to roll the tree after a big win and then walking across the street to Toomers drugs for a hand squeezed Lemonade. Recently tragedy struck our beloved tree. A rival fan poured a herbicide on the trees and they are certain to die. 200 year old trees and a 100 year old tradition are slowly falling apart. I've been almost in tears about what is happening and cannot believe its happening. I am praying they can save the trees.
I think one of our greatest traditions is our eagle. Before kick off the eagle circles the field! Its an amazing sight! She even flew in the olymipics several years ago!
