Well, we made it safely back from Baton Rouge on Sunday and took a day to recover. We tried to drink you guys out of alcohol, but that's no small feat :)
One of your forum bretheren hosted us at his tailgate and we had an absolutely fantastic time. Thanks to all the others who offered as well. We started drinkin and eatin and before we knew it, it was game time. We ate all kinds of food - loved the boudin balls - and drank plenty. When we walked away to go into the game, we couldn't have been happier. Just a tremendous time and thanks Kelly for hosting us!
We were on the east side for the game, about 40 rows up on the 40 yard line. Awesome seats, but if you couldn't tell, it was hotter than hell. Probably one of the hottest games I've been too, primarily because there wasn't much breeze and it seemed like the sun was moving at a snails pace to get down. We managed though, drank plenty of water, and hit the concourses from time to time.
The heat aside, we really enjoyed the game. Loved Callin Baton Rouge and the band's pregame. I can't get the "Geaux Tigers" song out of my head that y'all play 1k times a game :) We were surrounded by some great fans as well. Game atmosphere was good. I think the heat took it's toll as there were some big blocks of empty seats on the northern half of the stadium too. I'm sure a night game is better yet.
Overall, we all loved it. Would do it again in a heartbeat just for the gator, boudin balls and pretty women. Your fans were kind and welcoming and it made for a great weekend. That being said, I'll always bleed Husker red
