Never Rains in Tiger Stadium

Here in Louisiana we have a saying: "It Never Rains in Tiger Stadium"  I don't know who or when this was originated but I have to say, there have been countless times that I have sat soaked on a Saturday night in Tiger Stadium. This Saturday was one of those days!

The day started with clouds and lots of rain.  By the time Jeff, Parker, Lisa and I made it to campus, it had stopped raining.  We had a great afternoon of shopping at the Union bookstore and tailgating with friends!  It was so great to catch up with old friends!!!

LSU Cookie Cake!  Too cute!
Lisa and her godson, Michael Jr.
Parker (Jeff in the back)

Then on to the game.  It still wasn't raining.  Would our luck hold out?  Unfortunately, no. 30 minutes prior to the game as we were sitting waiting for the pre-game to start, it started to sprinkle.  It did this through the first quarter.  2nd quarter, the heavens opened up!  We did have our ponchos which kept our upper bodies quite dry.  But for some reason, our entire back sides (although we were sitting) were soaked!  I literally had to peel my clothes off of me when I got home! 

Great view from our seats!
But nothing can ruin a Saturday night in Tiger Stadium!  We won, of course!  Currently 2-0. 

Before the rain!
