This past weekend was the annual Magic City Classic. This event is a huge fashion show that hosts a game between Alabama State University and Alabama A&M University. People travel from all over to participate in the festivities. Most people are alumni and others are just there for the entertainment. The crowd is massive!!! There are a ton of celebrities that come into the city to be apart of this annual event. This year included Lisa Raye, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, Young Jeezy, and Rickey Smiley who is a Birmingham native. There maybe be others that I am not listing but I only heard of the few that I have listed. I had the pleasure of meeting Rickey Smiley, and I got to see Lisa Raye up close. I have to admit Lisa Raye is much prettier in person than on television.
I only participated in the tailgating festivities which was more fun than I could have imagined. This was my second time participating and I had a blast! I danced, drank, walked around, ate tons of food, and dance some more!!! I tailgated with some friends of mine and I must say they really know how to party! I know for sure I will be going next year, but I will not be out as long as I was this time. I was at tailgate from 9am to 5pm, I pulled an entire shift! I cannot do that again ever because once i got home I was super tired! I made it home around 530pm that Saturday evening and all I can remember is waking up at 1159pm to get something to drink. My oh my, I was too tired.
Here are a few pictures I am sharing with you all from this weekend festivities:

Well, people that is all for now and I have got to be out this piece. There will be more pictures available on my personal Facebook page. I didn't get too many pictures because my phone died on me and I didn't take my camera due to the crowd.
*I will add a link to my Facebook for more pictures later*
See ya soon....
