I made the post below a few days ago. After you read it, think of me at the LSU-Alabama game on Nov. 6th, in Death Valley for the first time.... Do you think it will be a good experience for me if people in LSU colors begin to boo our team? I will be enormously embarrassed, for all the reasons expounded on this Forum, and it will surely be a downer. Your team HEARS that stuff! A "Boo" is so unlike most other sounds a crowd makes (unless your name is BOO-mer Esiason-LOL) that it is a given that your loss of pride--your boos--will get to one or more of our players and piss him off (may be good) or distract him (bad). These guys have varying amounts of talent--some are great now, some will become so, and some will never excel--but they are ALL playing their HEARTS out for you, me, the coaches, personal pride and LSU. If, as in some recent games where we have all witnessed some tired & predictable 3-&-outs, you fans feel like booing, just be silent! SILENCE IS DEAFENING, and you will not run the risk of disheartening your team at a critical point, or proving yourself to have no class, no pride and no guts to stay the course! You will effectively have removed your Purple & Gold and have exchanged them for Crimson! And if you have booed already, how will you FEEL when LSU has great success despite your boorish behavior and maybe gets to Bowls and a shot at an NC? Do you then change your tune and shout out for every LSU play, as if you were a proud supporter of our team, during GOOD plays AND bad? Loser! Hypocrite! Wretch! Most of all, if you boo near me, at my first, very pricey, attendance in Death (Deaf?) Valley, you will piss me off, and, being from the Great State of Arizona, this geezer may just have a surprise or two for your sorry a**, fella! Make me proud & make yourselves proud! Lose the boos--and do not tolerate any from those LSU fans around you. Shut them down--without physical violence (one hopes). My original post (for context): "I am an LSU-Dad. I only WISH I were a part of the LSU alumni!. Fun to check these boards, both before & after each game, especially as I am way out in Arizona & not in BR. LSU--campus, people, sports, football team, Baton Rouge, Mississippi River, Death Valley--BLESSED you are if LSU is or was YOUR university. Take it from one who went to two lame undergrad venues (Providence College & Hofstra University) with little to brag about and essentially NO National presence, and "all y'all" are so lucky to be having these great discussions--and not a few rants--on these boards. I tell you true, I'd have given some important body parts to have been able to go to LSU those many years ago. Thank the Fates that my daughter is at LSU--giving me the opportunity to share the experience, excitement and angst that all y'all are PRIVILEGED to enjoy! (I will attend the 'Bama game on Nov. 6th, no doubt breathing in the 151 proof bourbon fumes emanating from 92,000+ freaks!--looking forward to that one, fo schizzle!) Oh, and, did I forget to mention the coolest, most out of control Tailgating in the frickin' USA? --Enjoy the ride, guys & gals--'cause I sure am! See ya in Death Valley!"
