Auburn fans were applying for Iron Bowl victory vanity license plates just days after the earthquake, two (at the most) to be exact.
In the immediate afterglow, the score was the obvious choice.
But the jab du jour seems to be alphanumeric variations of Kick Six, the pet name for the game that won out over other catchphrases like Kick, Bama, Kick.
In February, a KICK6 plate from Tennessee was making the interounds.
… reader Scott Daniel replied: “I see this one in Fairhope everyday.”
Even if the number stands at just three, it seems likely that no other single play in college football or maybe even sports history entire has been memorialized via vanity tag more than Chris Davis’ 109 touchdown return of whatshisname’s missed field goal. Oh wait—make that four.
Know of another one? Let us know at email@example.com. How many more are out there? How many more are possible?
And will Punt, Bama, Punt’s record of two namesake restaurants ever be broken?
UPDATE: That didn’t take long. Auburn freshman Kasey Creel’s dad is kickin’ six down in Florida.
UPDATE: T for Texas, via Eric and Laura Bruner (AU ’94). That’s five.
[UPDATE] Wouldn’t you know it, Illinois resident Jonathan Sargent just got his tags today.
UPDATE: Another Auburn one, from William Sanford.
UPDATE: Merry land…
And another… from Mike Robinson. Almost taunting.
Help us continue to document this unprecedented phenomenon. Teamwork makes the dream work.
