Can't believe nobody has mentioned or thought of something.....we had just been through a hurricane.
Many of us...me...had many other things on our minds. Like having to evacuate while thinking I'm going to lose my house.
I didn't, but was still without electricity at game time, the bridge to my house was, and is still washed out and the parish may not fix it.
But guess what, I went to the game, and no, I wasn't hoarse the next day.
ETA: I live about 1/3 mile from the Tangipahoa River.
