The only LSU football player to ever know my name
After telling my 8 yr old son recently that my 1st ever class at LSU (Business Calculus at 730 am MWF, huge mistake) had Booger M. In it and that Bush 41 told me hello at a restaurant in 2004, he asked how I knew so many famous people. I explained that there are exactly zero celebrities that know my name and only one LSU football player that ever did.

Troy Twillie was a CB in the late 90s and we had a mutual friend. Troy was outgoing, would make me feel like a million bucks by yelling my name across campus when crossing paths, or add me to his basketball teams at the Rec (even on A court at peak). It’s not like we even hung out much, that was just his personality.

About a year before meeting him, I went to my 1st game as a student. Bring Back the Magic against #3 Auburn. One year after the INT debacle.

About a dozen friends from out of town came in to party that Fri night and crash at our Plantation Trace apt. Out until 2am but had to work 10-3 on game day at Ruby Tuesday. Hour of traffic getting home and everyone left for campus. Pre cell phones so quick shower, big drink, and flask in pocket. Walking down Highland not knowing where to find anyone.

Cars were stop and geaux when some old dude (about my current age) yelled out his window ‘You won’t go any faster but hop in if you want some AC’. Said it was the 1st game back for him since college at LSU and he had driven from Atlanta that day. Dropped me off 10 minutes later on campus.

Finished off the huge drink and decided better to drink the flask rather than sneak in (mixed with coke as I’m not man enough straight). Phat buzz in 1st half sitting by myself but found a few guys that I sorta knew. Ran into a good friend at halftime and his Krewe snuck into Student section for 2nd half. Tense down to the wire as we were Pinball bouncing off everyone on big plays. On the final play of the game in the student section end zone, Nix lofts a pass that seemed to float forever. Intercepted by Twillie! I can only imagine that Hawthorne was screaming Tigers Win!!! Tigers Win!!!

Legit CSB. I remember him zooming around rescuing people in his airboat during the flood 2 years ago. Great man.

These were my thoughts as a found myself reading the entire post. I usually don't read anything on the rant that is long (usually bc it's just some jackass venting), but this was a nice memory to share.

Good post.

re: The only LSU football player to ever know my name
I almost got killed tackleing Billy Masters in 1963 in practice. He was tight end for lsu 1965 to 1968. Played with Chiefs, Bills, and Broncos till his retirement. I even scored a touchdown while on his team at Lasalle High. I was 10th grade and he was senior. No one remembers him but he was a source of pride from Lasalle High School in the little town of Olla La. We are still friends today. Goes to show that everybody has a life's story.

Cool Story

Shaq was good at getting out, socializing and remembering people's names. Saw him with the Magic and he remembered but ran in to him in Vegas a couple years back and nope.
Don't include that when I tell my grand kid stories.

I think I still look the same

No celebrities know my name. Two ex LSU players know my name. One is dead now and the other one is my brother.
