Take Me Out to the Ball Game

You might think mid-February is a little early for baseball season, but in fact we spent Saturday at opening weekend for LSU baseball.
Game 2
We opted to go Saturday afternoon instead of Friday night, which meant instead of seeing a game where LSU crushed Wake Forest 15-4 we were in for a much closer game. Not to say we didn't get to see a home run, since LSU hit 2 home runs in both games. Here's Mikey Mahtook running in on his 3rd home run of the season (2 on Friday night, 1 on Saturday).

I wound up having my "regular" meal of a BBQ brisket sandwich and a slice of LSU tiger stripped cookie cake for dessert.

Since the boy did his best to avoid and all pictures,
With the Boy
I had to settle on a photo shoot with myself and the field.
At Alex Box
By the ninth inning with the Tigers up 4-3, we brought in our Junior closer Matty Ott to seal the deal.

Hopefully this 2-0 start is how the rest of the LSU baseball season will go, and the Tigers will find themselves with a 7th national championship at the end of the season.

Geaux Tigers!


  1. Wow, I am ready for some warmer temps! It's snowing up here in Boston again. I cannot wait for the Sox to get back in town so I can go to the games!


  2. He knows when you get married, he's going to have to have his picture taken, right? Ha!

  3. So jealous. I haven't been to the new stadium yet. The brisket looks good, is it as good as Superior Grill's brisket?

  4. That bbq brisket looks so good! It looks like it was a fun time at the game!

  5. fun! I love baseball games. esp the food!
