I had an opportunity to sit on the west side of the stadium, section 14, for the first time. My seats are on the east side. But I wanted to try the west and sit behind the home team...NEVER AGAIN!!! There was a young girl, probably about 15 sitting next to me. She got up to go to the snack stand, and about 2 minutes later I hear an object hit the back of the seat directly in front of where she was sitting. I looked and found a large battery that had been thrown from the upper section. If she had still been in her seat, it would have hit her. I had also brought my 10 year old son and this was his first LSU game. Not long after this first battery was thrown, another came from the upper section and hit my son directly in the back. This battery was travelling at such a great velocity that it actually left a very large mark through a thick coat and a sweatshirt. I've never been more angry in my life. What kind of idiot throws batteries into a crowd. If this person could only have seen the look on my sons face and the tears he was shedding. And me trying to explain why someone would do something like this. Unfortunately, it most probably was thrown by an LSU fan. Both batteries were thrown after LSU turnovers or other mistakes. My best guess is that this moron was trying to reach the LSU sidelines. I hope that I am fortunate enough to be sitting in the stands near an idiot who does this in the future....I guarantee it will be his last. And aside from hitting my son, how terrible is it that a fan would try to hit an LSU player or coach? Until this incident, it was one of the best days my son and I have had together in a while. I have three sons and I make an effort to do an event of some kind one on one with each of them. Unfortunately this one ended on a bad note. He had trouble enjoying the rest of the game out of fear that another object would hit him and all I could do was keep an arm around him and constantly look to the upper section for flying objects. My son was so excited to go to this game, he was amazed at the crowds of people, the band, the game, and the tailgating, it was very exciting for him. I don't know if he will want to go to another game again. I've always been the guy who has defended the behavior of our fans when we are attacked...most often it is a bunch of B.S. If the person who threw these batteries happens to be reading this, you're very lucky that I don't know who you are and you owe my son a very big apology. And if you'd like to meet me somewhere, we can SETTLE UP!!!
