That’s my dinner: a handful of hot boudin in Tiger Stadium, on a Saturday night. In this shot, the LSU Tigers are in the far end zone, about to score their fourth touchdown against the University Of Alabama — Birmingham. Final score: 56-17. Thanks to the generosity of our neighbors, Lucas and I were able to go to the game, which was LSU’s home season opener. We had a great time. There’s something really special for a south Louisiana guy, being in Tiger Stadium with his son. When the Tigers scored an early touchdown, the man behind me shouted, “Yeah you right!” Ah, home.
