Born to it

Monday night, my folks made the requisite birthday phone call, and while chatting with my dad, I was informed that thirty-seven years ago today, I witnessed my first LSU football game.

Not that I recall one lick of it, you understand, being all of two days old. But Dad held me and we watched LSU go at it against Ole Miss, which was quarterbacked by the legendary Archie Manning. Of the three games Archie played against the Tigers, this was the only one he lost, and the Rebels lost big, 61-17. Manning played the game with a protected broken arm. (They don’t make football players like they use to, though some come close.)

So for my friends who might not quite understand my passion for college football, especially the Tigers, you could say I was born to it, and it’s been with me ever since.

GEAUX TIGERS!!
