    i know this isnt for you guys but it is walking into Tiger Stadium as a young kid in the mid to late 60's and seeing my first tiger game in person.

    We lived in Shreveport area and my dad was a high school football coach so we didnt get to go to many games we listened to them on the radio with John Ferguson Voice.

    I was against university of the pacific and my dad had an off week and we got tickets.

    My mom and dad were both school teachers and we didnt have alot of extra money so this was a big deal for our family and i was already a tiger fan for life but i didnt care it was the U Of P it was tiger football.

    And to this day when i am lucky enough to see an LSU game i remember that day as a kid like it was today.

    It is still one of the greatest days in my life and that is why Tiger Stadium is hallowed ground for me.

    No matter what happens win or lose i will always bleed purple and gold and always cherish being an LSU Tiger.

    There are many times since that day where great things have happenned but for me that will always be my moment.....

    LSU beating #1 and virtually unbeatable Florida in 97

    I was at that game.

    This. Very close was the two point conversion to beat Ole Miss after time had expired in the early 70's.

    I was sitting at the Oar House Saloon in Lihue, Hawaii watching that one. Very special. The bartender said, "Your team, they just keep fighting". I remember later we played Miami. I don't want to talk about that one, ugh.

    HWR...... Billy Cannon.....listening to the cheapo white radio on my dad's bedside table when I should have been in bed.

    Hearing the announcer's voice rise in pitch and volume.. one of the things that got me hooked on LSU football, from a thousand miles away, at such a young age.

    In my 40+ yrs as a Tiger fan I got a lot of them, many have already been mentioned. For my top 3 I'd have to go with 2003 MNC, because I never thought I'd see us win 1 in my lifetime, next would be the 2005 season opener against ASU, my kids 1st Tiger game which was exciting and fun to be at, next would be the "Earthquack game"against AU in 88, my last game in TS before I left LA.
