Its the tradition of Saturday Night in Death Valley, TGBFTL and the players marching down victory hill. The tailgating, drinking, food and good times had by all in anticipation of watching the Tigers play. It's the pregame salute to each corner of the stadium by the band. And like others have said, the fans. But why do we love it so much? I think LSU football represents the Louisianian. For as far back as the Cajuns history goes, we have been disrespected, pushed around, gone through harsh times and been underdogs. Lousiana is a blue collar state where we work our tails off to get what we can. We've been through Hurricanes, oil spills, all kinds of horrible stuff. I think LSU football is a way for us to come together once a week, forget about all the bills we have to pay, work that needs to be done and show the rest of the country what we're really about. Fun, food, bourbon, and football.
