Your first memory of Tiger Stadium?


My parents took me along to games as a toddler, but don't remember those.

My first actual memory of Tiger Stadium is actually hearing it from our home in Southdowns.

Our babysitter took me and my little sisters out on the porch one Saturday night and told us to listen...sure enough it could be heard.

That sound still gives me goosebumps to this day.

LSU vs Mississippi State 1998 was my first game as a child. Me, my dad, and my little brother. One of the best memories I have.

I remember walking up to the opening through an opening to get to our seats and someone had a Kevin Faulk banner hanging. My 7 year old self thought this was a curse word and grinned at the apparent lawlessness I was witnessing around me. I knew instantly I liked this place.

Your first memory of Tiger Stadium?

I got sick and threw up. I used to seat in the purple boxes in the student section when i was like 7 to 14 years old. I probably threw up every game for the first 2 or 3 years. I think it was because of all the crazy students yelling and throwing beer on me.

It's hard to really say. I remember getting left at someones house when my parents went, but I don't have a specific memory of my first game as a child.

I do remember the old dot matrix score board. You know, the one that actually put the lyrics to the alma mater on it.

It was loud and cold. Don't remember the game or who we played. I was probably 5-6 with my dad and sister.

I do remember taking my jacket and outer shirt off because I was jumping up and down and yelling the whole time and I got hot.

We played Rice, that's all I remember. I was about four years old.

'04. First collegiate game was Ole Miss LSU '03. Best game I've ever seen to this date. Eli was phenomenal. Anyway. Had tickets in the nosebleed. Loved the environment. Saturday night. LSU won 20-13. 350 rushing yards in that game.

Yeah, not even sure what game I first heard.

It was circa 1967.

1986 LSU v. aTm. Our Neighbor , Mr. M. gave us tickets to the game. I don't remember the score nor do I care to. I had such a blast. I couldn't stop yelling. The next day I annoyed the shite out of my folks to buy me a LSU jersey. In retrospect it was a horrible jersey. THe kind with the holes in em.

My first game in Tiger Stadium was in 2000 vs MSU. I was 11 at the time and was just in awe when I saw the field and all of the fans. I was blown away by the number of people, the lights, the sounds... everything. It was truly an amazing experience.

I lived in North Florida for twenty years and my first game attended after moving back was the Tebow game in 2007.

After so many years amongst gator fans, that game was a particularly sweet homecoming experience.

Around 91 or 92 season & Bama handled us all day. But I was in town from North La chasing ass. At least I succeeded were our Tigers couldn't. Special thanks to that unk student sitting beside us who had a constant supply of spirits that would help seal the deal after the game. Damn, to be 19 yrs old again.

2000 vs Tennessee

Taking the escalators up to the top deck of the old west upper and seeing a dead rat

Then of course the end when you couldn't even see the field because of all the fans.

I was 11

Dreaming in color after the game because of the brightness and sharpness of the field and the helmets.
