'There Is Magic Here'

A tweet made the rounds Saturday in which an Alabama fan recounted the "magic" of his visit to Aggieland to watch the Crimson Tide face the Aggies at Kyle Field.

These types of stories are not new to any Aggie:

But no matter how often we hear or read stories like this one, they always make us proud of the heartfelt hospitality and genuine respect that Aggies show all of our guests.

Welcome to Aggieland, Bama.

This visitor's story is captured in images in the tweet embedded directly above, but for ease of reading on mobile devices, we've also transcribed his post:

My daughter goes to Bama. One of the parents who was at the game posted the following our parent group. He said we could share it.

Today in College Station, Texas:

A gentleman introduced me to his family and the rich traditions of his school, before treating me to rock star seating at the finest college football stadium I've ever seen. He was an Aggie.

A trembling young man dropped to his knees in front of strangers and proposed, tearfully, to his sweetheart. He was an Aggie. 

A young lad 40+ years my junior, a total stranger, sat down next to me at a tailgate and engaged me in 30 minutes of wonderful conversation. He was bright and his manners were impeccable. He was an Aggie. 

At the game, the crowd cheered in unified, disciplined, and stirring chorus with a spirit I've never seen before. They were Aggies. 

After Damien Harris ripped off his huge TD run, a guy behind me tapped me on the shoulder. I turned and he gave me a congratulatory fist bump. He was an Aggie. 

After the victory, as I was walking to our ride, I passed the open window of a car. A middle-aged woman inside noticed my Bama regalia and called out to me with utter sincerity, "Did you enjoy your time here?" She was an Aggie.

There is magic here. If you ever have the opportunity to attend a game at Texas A&M, do yourself a favor and come. You will never forget it.

Roll Tide, friends.
