re: Your first memory of Tiger Stadium?(Posted by Jax-Tiger on 8/21/13 at 1:48 pm to tiger4178)
LSU vs. Notre Dame in 1971. I was 8 years old and I remember walking through the tunnel and being amazed at how beautifully manicured and green the field was.
I also got lost after the game because I turned around to look at the field instead of following my Dad out. I panicked for a minute because I wasn't sure where to go because everyone around me was blocking my view and I didn't know whether my dad had gone right or left. An usher saw me and stood by me until my dad found me. Those were the two moments I remember most - not much about the game...

Gosh dog, Danny Weurfel and Florida is my first memory. He put it on us that day at my first lsu game. My mom went up to a ticket booth and bought tickets at the stadium. We were on the second row right behind the fence and the south end zone. I was a teenager and fell in love with everything lsu on that day.
As a Boy Scout, I worked an early Saints game at Tiger Stadium (we were ushers). Jimmy Taylor played, that was cool. Unfortunately he was past his prime and I think retired the next year. As you have already figured out, I'm an old fart.
