Not nearly as great a memory as yours, but for me it was the '14 Bama game we gave away. Up until the outcome, that had been the best game I'd enjoyed with my 10 yr. old son.
After it was over and we were walking out of the tunnel, he looked up with big tears in his eyes and said "what are we gonna do??"
I replied, "we'll just go home and be back for the next one buddy".

Seeing my dad cry tears of joy after the 03 title. He was 6 years old in 1958.

Probably being with my dad in an Alabama section for the Game of The Century. Everything about that day and experience is something that gives me indescribable feelings of emotion. People may think some are crazy and stupid for being so invested in a sports team, but it's those moments that make it so much more than just being a fan. Another personal moment was storming the field with my dad after LSU clinched the west in 2001. I was about 6 years old, but I will never forget how excited and in awe my dad was that we were going to play for an SEC championship. That always stuck with me

re: Most personal LSU moment
After a paused attempt of storming the field against #2 Tennessee in 2000, watching the whole overtime of that game standing with my feet on the out of bounds line in the endzone with 5000 other students that had already jumped down out of the stands and couldn't get back up. LSU wisely picked the north EZ for OT and Rohan to Royal scored on the first play. Tenn went 4 and out as all the sidelines of people packed like sardines were screaming their heads off. When the game was over, there was just a huge push of humanity and exuberation from behind us towards the goal post. It was all I could do to keep my feet underneath me and not get trampled. It was the biggest win at LSU since the '97 Florida game, and the first big win under our new coach Saban. We had just lost to UAB and nobody gave us a chance, except the packed house for a night game in Tiger Stadium. I really remember the smell of the field that night. The whole field smelled like feet and armpit, as you could tell that the players from both teams left everything on the field that night. All that was left to do was spark up a J at midfield and let the dynasty begin.

re: Most personal LSU moment
Long story but had 2 extra tickets in the upper deck of the dome for the '03 National Championship Game. Had offers at tailgate and 2 guys locked it in and said they would be back with cash. They ran off and I declined other offers trying not to screw the guys over. Didn't pay for the tickets so I wasn't trying to make a killing but certainly a profit. Well the guys didn't come back. Headed to the dome early with most of the crowd still looking for the 2 guys. Overheard a little boy (probably about 6-7yrs old) asking his dad why they couldn't go to the game. Dad responded with the cost being up there and they were going to watch it at home. Stopped and handed him the 2 extra tickets. Guys eyes welled up and he looked like he was about to cry and he just told his son to tell me Thank You. Gave me a hug and handshake and we chatted on the walk in.

Mike V - sprayed me and 250 people who were 50 feet behind me, as I took photos standing on the trailer hitch as he entered his domain. He marked me, but I got four dates the following week with hot girls who loved my new "cologne.'' Dobermans and Rottweilers's ducked under houses and cats went up trees as I walked through the neighborhood. You would have to live it to understand it's AWESOMENESS!!!! RIP MIke V.

Mine was 2007 as well. The woman I was dating at the time surprised me with tickets to the SEC Championship game against Tennessee. What made it so special and something that I'll always treasure is that she passed away two years later of pancreatic cancer.

re: Most personal LSU moment
In 2009 I went to a baseball game and sat in one of the boxes, Skip made his rounds and ended up talking to me for about an hour. It was amazing the things he remembered about the 80s. I was a decent baseball player and he had just started at LSU. I wasnt LSU or even D1 good, but somewhere in my Moms house is a letter from Skip. I told him about it, kinda laughing. He went on to tell me my coaches name, and remembered who from our district was good, and who he remembered making playoff runs. Not specifics, but he had the gist of it down pat.

Told him I had a son on the way, he told me to make sure I looked him up in 18 years

1997 Florida vs. LSU in Death Valley. My Dad gave my 17 yr old brother and me (13 at the time) the tickets and we each took a friend. Dad said LSU was going to get $hit-canned, so he didn't want to waste his time going. Well, he was way wrong, and #1 went down that night. These were way before the days of cell phones, so when everyone started rushing the field the only thing my brother said to me was, "Do you remember where we parked?" Before I could answer, he and his buddy were jumping rows to get down to the field. My friend and I did the same, and I ended up, somehow, lifted up onto the crossbar of the SEZ goalpost right before it came down...and I got a kiss on the cheek from a LSU girl cheerleader.

When we got home, my Dad sheepishly asked if we had a good time. Of course we were on cloud 9, but then he came out and asked me what it was like to ride the goal-post down and around the field...he still talks about seeing my on the WAFB video from that night.
