This past Saturday my wife and I along with my daughter and her two kids rode the fan bus to the USM vs LSU game in Baton Rouge. Taking the bus and not having to drive in the traffic was a great decision! The trip and the first half of the game were perfect, but because this is a family blog, I will withhold my thoughts on the second half of the game. However, despite the second half disappointment, the trip was a success. Not only did my grandson who is a big LSU fan get to see the campus and attend a game in Tiger Stadium, I had a whole day and night to pick on and aggravate my beautiful granddaughter. Life does not get much better than that!
Our seats in the stadium were located just above cloud level. My acrophobia, which usually kicks into high gear on the first wrung of a ladder, never loosened its grip on me the entire game. Fortunately, most people were too busy tending nosebleeds to notice my white knuckles gripping the seats. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed being in Tiger Stadium. Watching football from cloud level is like watching ants line up in formation and then scatter across the field, or was that the band? It was really hard to tell from such a high perch.
For me, the most refreshing part of the game was the pregame music. They actually played music people could get into and sing to like “Louisiana Saturday Night” and Garth Brook’s “Baton Rouge.” You didn’t hear bone shattering high pitched rap squealing through the stadium speakers like you…
