It’s finally Bama week! My superfan husband, Matt and I were at the Mississippi State game two weeks ago. There was so much excitement and noise, and all I could think about was how much fun the Alabama game is going to be. We could only fit in three home games this year, and I had to fight for the Bama game. Matt was convinced that the Georgia game was the way to go, but I’m an old school LSU fan. My animosity towards Alabama goes back decades. I grew up in a family that would sing “Bama, Bama. Bama won’t you bite my (ah, you know the rest)!” regardless of the team LSU was playing. No matter how...
Wow! What a game! I had to run errands in the early afternoon, so color me surprised when I walked in the house to find LSU ahead at the start of the second quarter. My superfan husband, Matt began talking fast with a high-pitched voice and attempting to carry an impossible number of grocery bags into the house during the commercial break. I “offered” to help, but I was having too much fun watching him try to bring in three pumpkins, an insulated freezer tote, and a dozen eggs at one time to actually follow through. The majority of the second quarter consisted of me unloading groceries while my kids asked me no less than 100 times when we...
So, there it is. LSU’s football team lost their first game of the season. My husband, Matt and I came home from a weekend away last week to find ourselves knee-deep in viruses, ear infections / busted eardrum, and planning a birthday weekend for twins. There was no way I could find time to write about the Florida game, and then we lost. I am so entrenched in LSU superstition and mom guilt that I can’t help but blame myself for last week’s loss. I know I sound ridiculous, but I’ve been indoctrinated.   Speaking of mom guilt, I did to my kids what I swore I would never do. We invited everyone over to watch the Florida game for...
Last weekend’s game against LA Tech got a little precarious towards the end. Was anyone else’s superfan in meltdown mode? My husband Matt kept shaking his head and saying “It’s going to be another Troy” in an uncharacteristically high tone of voice. And no, he wasn’t referring to the 2004 movie called “Troy” that starred an overly bronzed and muscular Brad Pitt (which would have certainly been an upgrade to the third quarter). Troy University is an unranked, non-conference school that beat LSU last year in Tiger Stadium, during Homecoming week. It was a total embarrassment and has become a recurring nightmare for many superfans that is only whispered about in trusted circles. Matt was already on edge, because...
Last Saturday is why I love LSU football and college football in general. It’s why I put up with it taking over my fall every year. It’s why, as much as I make fun of my superfan husband, I know that deep down, I’m a superfan too. What a fantastic display of passionate underdogs winning because they wanted it more. My LSU football superfan was at a guys’ weekend in New Orleans, so my sister and I watched the game with my three girls. They rarely pay attention for more than thirty seconds of football at a time but were enraptured with the last five minutes of the game. They could hear the cheering and feel the excitement. My...
Well, my husband, Matt and I survived our first time bringing one of our kids to a game at Tiger Stadium. The day played out similar to the football game. She started off strong and full of LSU spirit while we tailgated but fizzled out by the time we got to the stadium after a long wait for the Golden Band in the 95 degree sun. We were able to revive her with copious amounts of concessions, but it was a rough first half. Our tiny six year old daughter put away a large Mr. Pibb, nachos, dippin’ dots, and a bag of popcorn before the end of the third quarter. I don’t know if it was because we...

Spring time in Baton Rouge can only mean one thing in my house: baseball season. We can practically smell the hot dogs in anticipation. This time of year always creates a plethora of emotions among my family. Celebrations in the wins and heartbreaks in the losses. The all too-familiar rollercoaster of highs and lows eventually come to an end in late June, which leaves a few months to live in the triumph during the Spring. I previously dabbled in writing about my life as a coach’s daughter in my personal blog, It's a Family Thing. It’s not just a game. My dad is now in his 10th season at LSU. This is his “job” that relocated our family down south while I...
