Omaha Herald article about LSU fans. Good read.


LINK

quote:

There’s a sense this year that LSU may come to the rescue, with the relentless fans and the L-S-U chants and the traveling party. That maybe the Tigers and their faithful can take some of that cajun spice from Rosenblatt and deliver a similar kick to a TD Ameritrade Park in need of some character. Or characters.


quote:

Beaver Nation livened up the joint when Oregon State went back-to-back in 2006 and 2007. South Carolina fans showed their feathers the last few years. But the LSU Tiger is a different animal.

If not for the 2009 shirt, i would have thought that picture was from the 90's with that Bill Dance Tennessee hat and the LSU hat all the way to the right of the picture.

They just had to add that part about Mendoza. And I thought my Friday was off to a good start.

Blah, blah, blah, another feel good LSU in Omaha story......and I absolutely love it.

I've seen posters get railed for talking about the south Louisiana culture being loved as it's introduced in Omaha. The railers can go kiss a yard leaf bag full of ghey, aids oozing peckers.

It makes me very proud to think that a goodly part of a city that's 1,200 miles away likes the way we roll to such a degree that their home town paper write articles about that roll.

When you're personally in the midst of something, it's hard to know if it's really special. It might just be you. When outsiders embrace it - again, to the point of continuously writing about it - it's validation.

The CWS always works because of the people, the fans, the characters, the spirit. The new CWS could use some of that LSU mojo. Just make sure they turn right.


Wow....just wow.....

It’s hard to describe, but here’s an old story to try. Back in the late 1990s, an LSU fan named Russell Mendoza was here on his umpteenth trip to the CWS, to follow his Tigers, party the week away. Only this time was different. This time, Russell had cancer. His prognosis wasn’t good. Mendoza canceled some appointments to chemotherapy in order to go to the CWS. He would die months later. But before his final CWS, Mendoza’s doctor asked him what was so important about going to Omaha. “Doc, we don’t know if that chemo is going to work,” Mendoza said. “But the College World Series always works.”
