Tiger Stadium is literally one of the greatest places on earth. It's so loud and it vibrates and I get goose bumps when the band starts playing! Even the great Bear Bryant thought it was the most intimidating place to play as the opponent. It's a huge bowl of 100,000+ people. Someone once said it's like being inside of a drum, and that's probably pretty accurate.
This will also be happening again... for the first time in 9 years. This is the last time Amanda and I were at an LSU game together. She was a freshman and I was still sneaking in with my college ID on a student ticket.
Tiger Stadium quotes:
"It was like the Colosseum in Rome and we were the Christians." -- The late Bobby Dodd of Georgia Tech.
"Baton Rouge happens to be the worst place in the world to be a visiting team." -- Paul "Bear" Bryant
"There is a 25-yard-long sign that reads, "Welcome to Death Valley'' mounted below the pressbox. Those are the little touches at which LSU excels. Most schools wouldn't even put up such a name. Others would just say, "Death Valley" and leave it at that. But not LSU. Here, it's "Welcome to Death Valley." That's beautiful. It's like descending into Hell and finding a sign that reads, "Satan Invites You to Enjoy Eternal Damnation."

So off I go tomorrow, to the greatest place in the world.
