If you do actually go to a Tennessee game, it is not without its charms. The stadium does sort of look like a really nice above ground pool, which is appropriate. The sailgating of the Vol Navy is beyond friendly, and if things are going well the crowd can be very, very loud even when Rocky Top is not playing. And until his death there was Bobby Denton, the PA announcer, who since his first game over 40 years ago urged Tennessee patrons to save a dollar and pay no more than the listed price.

RIP, Bobby Denton. Neyland will be a less frugal place without you, and thus poorer for it.
