The hubby was watching this game and he asked me if you were watching it. I was like, "I think not!". I'll have to e-mail this to him.

why did i know you would link to a (tiger band) piccolo post? LOL...btw, picc is definately a her....that's her in her sig pic and avatar (the blonde with the charlie brown round face) and she is a very good flutist (begin "one day at band camp" jokes here)

the pomeranian is lacey, and you wouldn't think she is spoiled rotten would you?

it was a lot of fun to meet you... to fully enjoy lsu tailgaiting, you just have to work on no longer being a vegetarian (lol)

Therese

I would love to see the BFS and the Chicageaux guy in a beer shotgunning contest. Work on that one, Kane.

cokane

meanieT, who knew, right?

Butch the straight gentleman, I guess I'm not very good at getting people's genders right.(That cowboy cheerleader was a woman, right?) I remember you mentioning Picc, but then this was so without any little girl "I love you" business I thought it was from a boy... Thanks again for everything!

Therese, I'll get on that.

i'm so glad that you finally got to go to a game. a pretty damn good one at that. we did, however, lose. a game that we were supposed to win no less, and i've been scrathing my head trying desperately to figure out what metaphysical phenom may be the cause for this. now i know...

it was you colleen.

you are hereby forbidden from ever stepping foot into the hallowed grounds of tiger stadium.

ever.

but i have to give props to butch for taking you under his wing and showing you how we do it down there.

as for me, i'm still searching for just the right bridge to throw myself off of after the loss.

nice knowing ya...

This post raises so many questions. Are you telling us that people were cooking a pig in that filthy looking coffin?

jew

Wow! What did you wear?

jew

oh dang i guess i don't have to sign my comments with your new typepad fancyness!

vl100butch

yes they were cooking a pig in that coffin looking device.....it's lined with stainless steel and very well insulated...

colleen actually wore an lsu t-shirt!!!!!!

and she was complimented by many people for doing so!!!

amy

best blog ever! are you scarred for life or what?!

Kartek

Haha. Wait. Was Rutgers the worst big east football team during our RU tenure?

Caitlin

That tigerdroppings link is funny, but what is it doing on an LSU forum!?

I'm glad to read you survived a game! I'm not a Tigers fan but I did enjoy the couple games I've gone to. It's very hard to not get swept up in the madness.

I was about to comment on how weird it is that the weather looks perfect, but then I remembered the game was on Friday, not Saturday. You definitely got great football weather.

meanieT

I was also thinking that it was really cool that someone gave you a ticket (Butch?). If LSU is anything like OSU (my alma mater), then it's like getting the winning Willie Wonka Golden Ticket. People seriously don't part with that shit, even for a lotta money on Ebay.

I was wondering about the whole "New Yorkers don't say 'hi'" thing and how you were caught off guard by your neighbors' friendliness. We've had people come visit Pittsburgh and report that "all these people were smiling and waving-weird". I personally think it's really weird when people don't say 'hi' (like one of our neighbors-maybe from NYC?). So, what's with that? Are people afraid to make the connection in bigger cities? Afraid they're going to be asked over for dinner? I just don't see anything bad about being friendly with one's neighbors (neighbros).

vl100butch

tigerdroppings has several boards, that particular post came from the OT (other topic) Lounge, where the discussions range from the raunchily sexual to just plain inanity....and of course the (good) morning thread.....

you want to see football ranting, go to the tiger rant, score board, or coaching changes boards...

as far as the ticket for colleen was concerned, i did a 2 for 4 swap....the arkansas game is normally a lot easier to do this sort of swap for as it is a day game (sucks), a friday (sucks donkeys), and normally the first day of hunting season....but it helped that the two tickets i swapped were for absolutely spectacular seats!!!!!

on e-bay or the tigerdroppings ticket exchange, tickets were going for $100- each to as high as $500- each...depending on where they were in the stadium...

cokane

Cajun Boy, I suspected this all might somehow be my (damn?) Yankee fault. I will have no problem complying with my forbidden status, as I have now experienced the game.

Amy, thanks! I feel relatively unscathed.

meanieT, I heard someone explain this phenom really well years ago and I will now butcher it. Before cities there were tribes in which everyone knew each other, made eye contact, acknowledged each other. With large cities it just became too big to acknowledge every person you passed by, so people became more selective and just kind of filtered out everyone else. And then people selected their own tribe within the larger group that they associated with. And then they said "Screw you buddy" if someone tried to ask them the time on the street.

Butch, now I feel even more indebted. Get ready for some delicious home-cooked vegetarian celebration roast next time you're here! Mmmm....gluten-y.
Just kiddin. Hmmm...I have this antique support garment called Bub I could sell on eBay?

TigerBandPiccolo

WOW! Butch emailed me this link and boy am I impressed with your blog! I am the writer of the Hanson fan mail that you linked. AND...as someone else pointed out, I am in fact a la-la-la lllay dy. A sexy Charlie Brown head lady at that ;)

Ha. Just kidding. But seriously.

I'm glad you enjoyed my "inane" post. :D You should come back for more....

And GEAUX TIGERS!

Randy

Butch- you don't have to be a non-vegetarian to enjoy tailgating. It might help if you eat seafood (as I do), but all you really gotta' be is someone who likes to drink.

Jules

Ha! Love the pictures. Great post.

meanieT

Ah...I see.

ecs

So...purple and gold aren't considered "faggy" there?

jade b

purple & gold (& green ZOMG!) are mardi gras colors... you know, for the fags!

cokane

Picc, you now play in a band that plays for much larger crowds than Hanson! Z-dog should be writing you letters now.

Randy, I can do that!

Jules, thx

MeanieT, I think I should've used the term villages instead of tribes but y'know. Thought that was an interesting explanation for the whole big city/small town friendliness phenom. I wish I could remember who said it.
