Iron Bowl Today
It’s possible that there are people already in your house, as excited as if it were already Christmas. It’s the last Saturday in November, here in Alabama, and it’s time for the Iron Bowl where Alabama and Auburn play for the state’s football bragging rights.
It’s probably bigger than a conference championship or a national championship. Around here, it’s definitely bigger than any NFL game, including the Super Bowl. It’s the game that makes or breaks coaches’ and players’ careers.
Around here, it’s sort of like a religious holiday.
Chances are, if you’re an Alabamian, you’re going to want to watch it. This year, it comes on at 2:30 on CBS. It will be after lunch and before dinner, but that doesn’t mean your game-watching crew won’t expect to be fed. And of course, after all of that cooking you did Thursday and the shopping you did Friday, you may not want to prepare a thing for your guests or yourself.
So you can devote your full attention to the game, stop by Rusty’s to pick up some crowd-pleasing comfort food. We’ll be open from 10:30 AM -9:00 PM today. We’ll have the game on the big screen TV, so you can rest assured you won’t miss a thing.
For a crowd, we suggest pulled pork or chicken and some easy side dishes like our cole slaw or baked beans. And don’t forget dessert! Get a head start on focusing on the game by calling ahead for pickup orders.
Roll Tide or War Eagle? Rusty just says “May the best team win.”
