A monday like no other

If you were not already aware, in the south there is a hierachy.

1. Jesus

2. Football

3. Family

Monday all will conincide on a day of all days. The national championship. It will be a rematch of epic proportions. I wrote about the previous game here.  You see it will be LSU vs Alabama again. As if they even deserve a second chance. Hell no. But they get one. Why ? Because they are football royalty and we are not. They whine and then get whatever they want.

Living in Louisiana, LSU is life. Every game day you wear purple and gold. Does it matter if you went to LSU, no. You just do it. I even dress my daughter in purple and gold. I don’t even know why, I just feel so compelled. I can’t stop myself. I taught my daughter  to chant “go tigers” whenever she sees football on TV. I went to Georgia Tech. What is wrong with me? It’s Lousiana. It changes you .

I know a lot of other places take football very seriously. But have you seen cities where they take down multiple American flags and replace them with LSU flags for the big game? No. They don’t do that even in Tuscaloosa.

 

What about closing offices and schools? Maybe for a national holiday. Not here. Schools all over the state are closed monday and opening late tuesday. Why, the game isn’t until six pm monday? So you can “experience the atmosphere” of the game and go to New Orleans. In other words, school is closed so we can party !!!!

 

Geaux Tigers !!!!!! 

The Honey badger

Yesterday was the LSU I mean SEC championship game. It was epic. LSU had no first downs in the entire first half, yet still managed to have seven points and keep Georgia to only ten. The second half they came out in utter domination. As was expected. But the highlight of the game was and will always be the honey badger, number 7, Tyrann Mathieu. Many people hate on him and all I have to say to that is he doesn’t need your respect to be awesome. The honey badger doesn’t play every position, he is a position.

See my thoughts on the Alabama game here- your crazy drunk uncle

Geaux Tigers !!!! National Championship Here We Come!!

Your Crazy Drunk Uncle

This past weekend was the most epic football battle in 40 years. LSU vs. Alabama. @ Alabama. 1 vs. 2. Two undefeated teams enter only one will leave with dignity.  If you were not watching the game you must have been dead.  I am an LSU fan. There are no other options. We dominated. 9 to 6!

Les Miles (LSU Head coach) says it best:

“Would I rather be a Bama fan? Of course not. LSU is just boatloads more fun. Alabama is respectable, dignified. They are college football royalty. We’re completely unhinged psychopaths. In the SEC Family, we’re the crazy drunk uncle. Everybody loves that guy, so long as he only trashes somebody else’s house. Well, we’re coming to trash Alabama’s house this week. Hide the china.” ~Les Miles

 

 

 

Louisiana Saturday Night

There is nothing like saturday night in death valley. The entire southern portion of the state of Louisiana will be there. Don’t have tickets. Who cares just bring your tv and sit outside the stadium and watch the game. There will be drunk college girls falling down, food that will keep you up all night, and old people feeling each other up. What could be better? Nothing. Exactly.

It is so hard to not tell the fifty year old man sitting in front of you to please stop sticking his hand up his wife’s skirt. It’s great you are getting some old man, but come on. But nothing beats the 40 year old man who thinks he is still in a fraternity. No your full body leotard was not funny then and it still isn’t now. You know that girl that told you it was hot? She was drunk.

Worried you will be too drunk to drive home. Don’t worry, remember you had to park over two miles away. Thats plenty long enough of a walk to sober you up. Besides thats why you brought your little sister. To be DD.
