More Tiger Walk-Gate irony: watch Trooper Taylor LAY OUT a McNeil at a 2006 Vol Walk.
Seems appropriate in light of recent developments per WBE’s yesterday Plainslinks:
Good move. You’ve probably heard by now that Tennessee has canceled Auburn’s Tiger Walk outside of Neyland. You can get one reaction from Jonesy, but mine would be to note the extreme two-fold irony that’s been pointed out to me:
1. Tennessee’s “Vol Walk” will proceed as planned, meaning that the Vols will have stolen Auburn’s idea, then turned around and forbidden Auburn to do it themselves. (For the record, everyone can have their own “Walk.” That I’m fine with. The other part? Not so much.)
2. The official reason for the cancellation is “security reasons.” Of course, now there’s all kinds of talk amongst Auburn fans about pulling off an impromptu, unsanctioned Tiger Walk that will be 10 times more chaotic, confrontational, and generally un-secure than the official one would have ever been.
So, yeah, this was a great move on someone’s part.
