The Iron Bowl Workout
Happy Iron Bowl Eve to you! This game is always a big deal in Alabama, but there year it is even bigger. The #1 team in the nation versus the #4 team in the nation, championships on the line. People will be no longer speaking to several friends and family members after this. If you are unfamiliar with this rivalry, I'm not exaggerating. The game is so nerve racking for some people they can hardly stand it. Why not put all the pent up aggression, nervous energy, and anger towards something else? Introducing the Official Iron Bowl Exercise Game! Clay Travis is a well known sports write who has a CBS football drinking game. I can't really sponsor that, so I'm totally stealing his idea and just using exercise instead. Every time something from the following list happens, you will have an exercise to go with it. Since these games last 3.5 hours you could accumulate a serious workout here. 1. Every time the announcers mention "divided houses" (Auburn and Alabama fans who are married) do 5 pushups. 2. Every time they mention AJ McCarron's girlfriend Katherine Webb do 5 pushups. If they also mention she is an Auburn grad, add 5 more on to that. 4. Every time an old coach for either team is talked about (The Bear, Chizik, etc…) do 20 squats. 5. Every time Aubie is shown do 5 pushups. Sorry, this will cost you probably 80 pushups. 6. Any time there is a turnover (by either team), do 10 burpees. 7. When Nick Saban is interviewed, do 5 squats every time he shrugs his shoulders. 8. Any time Gus Malzhan's high school coaching career is mentioned, do 30 mountain climbers. 9. Any time a fan is shown looking dejected/with his or her hands on their head, do 20 pushups. 10. Every time they reference Tre Mason's dad being in De La Soul, hold a plank for 30 seconds. 11. If your team is losing at half time, go for a long soul searching walk. Regroup. 12. If they mention an infamous interview with Gus Malzhan's wife, do 20 sprints in your yard if you are a Bama fan. If you are an Auburn fan, turn your TV off. 13. Every mention of Saban going to Texas will get you Auburn fans 5 sprints. Bama fans can angrily tweet at whichever announcer keeps mentioning it. 14. Every time Verne seems like he is having way too much fun pronouncing names like CJ Uzomah or Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, do 5 burpees. 15. If your team wins, sprint around the block as fast as you can. If your team loses, angrily chase the winning fans in your neighborhood. Best of luck to your team today! Either way, it's just a game being played by giant teenagers. Enjoy it for what it is and have fun.
