It had been raining most of the day, but by the time we started heading to the game the rain had let up. I was crossing my fingers that it would stay that way, but the boy figured we might be safe and pick up ponchos on the way there. We wound up having to park around 2 miles away from the stadium, at least according to the Boy it was 2 miles, to my legs it felt much much longer. And then once we got to the actual stadium we had to walk ALL the way up to our seats. Yes, we were all the way at the top. There were actually only 3 rows behind us. Which did mean we had a good view.
After listening to the marching band play the fight song,
Yes, there's a saying that goes "It Never Rain in Tiger Stadium." Does it look like that happened?
We also got to see them honor Shaq.
They also honored the 2009 NCAA Champion LSU baseball team. I would have taken a picture of this as well, but at the time we were experiencing a fairly torential downpour and was at least a little afraid of ruining my camera. Plus I didn't want to get anymore wet then we already were.
Eventually the rain did let up and we got to enjoy the rest of the LSU's 23-9 win over Vanderbilt.
Any one else spend part of their weekend at a football game? Let's hope you stayed a little dryer than we did!
