On Thanksgiving Day, I promised the kids we could go see “Hugo” the next afternoon, and bought tickets online. I forgot that the LSU-Arkansas game would be on TV Friday instead of Saturday. Yoink! But I’d already spent the money, and made a promise, so I kept up with the game via iPhone during the film (which, let me say, is a terrific movie — my boys loved loved loved it, and so did I, though it was a bit over five-year-old Nora’s head; please go see it).

Anyway, I missed a great display by the LSU offense. It’s probably for the best that I wasn’t watching Tyrann “Honey Badger” Mathieu’s 92-yard touchdown run, which turned the game around, in a local bar; I would have had a seizure and torn the place up. LSU is undefeated in regular season play for the first time since 1958. Can’t tell you how happy I am that we’re going to be back in the Great State when LSU plays for the national championship. Which it no doubt will.
