BCS National Championship Game
LSU vs. Alabama
I'm not happy about the again part. LSU already beat Bama once this season. Think about it. If Alabama beats LSU one time they win the National Championship. LSU has to beat Alabama twice. It is what it is but I don't have to be happy about it.
We won't be at the game. We'll be with friends watching on TV. Why, you ask? Well, first there's the $350 FACE VALUE price tag for tickets. Not that I wouldn't like to be there but there are a lot of other things I'd rather do with $700. Like spend it on the cruise!! Second, we couldn't have gotten a ticket for $350 because the demand is crazy nuts. Our friend whose wife works in the LSU Athletic Dept has hooked us up before. Not this time, she was only allowed to buy 2 tickets. We have friends that are there & they paid $1800 per ticket to sit 12 rows above LSU's bench between the 40's in October before we knew LSU would be playing. Believe it or not, that was a deal for those seats. We were at the last National Championship game in New Orleans 4 years ago when LSU won. They also won it 4 years before that when it was in New Orleans. Bodes well huh?? LSU also beat Alabama for their 4th National Championship in Baseball in 1997. Yours truly was in the stands in Omaha for that one as well
So, to all my Alabama friends, Kerri that's you, sorry about this.......
ROLL TIDE ROLL.... AROUND THE BOWL & DOWN THE HOLE!!!!!!
