you know where you were on the most important dates in history: when the Devils won state titles.
you make sure that your cold weather wardrobe is RED -- even your thermals.
you are met with groans, dirty looks, profanity, offensive gestures and other niceties when asked where you are from at work after you've moved away.
you hold your dear aunt's funeral at noon on Friday so that everyone can leave for Atlanta to be at the Dome the next day for a Devil game.
you ARE a Red Devil if you grew up on Sunrise Drive with the likes of Thomas Bunch, Larry Campbell, Jimmy Smith, Mack Matthews, Neil Amason, Kermit Adams, Donnie Hill, "Ham" Willingham, Omar Beggs, "Sting Dawkins", etc. There were alot of good players and true contributors to the program that grew up on Sunrise Dr. with all those good men and women keeping an eye out.
you feel guilty going to a high school football game in which your Red Devils are not playing!
