BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Game two of the 2012 LSU football
season is Saturday night at six. Last week, Hurricane Isaac kept some fans away
from game day activities, and the first game didn't have the excitement of this
one. Friday, a group of Tiger faithful set up early for game day and vow nothing
else will keep them away from campus this season.
Marvin Vinnings was happy to
raise his American and LSU flags over his treasured tailgate site. The days
leading up to the season kickoff last week were not so rosy for him and his
wife thanks to Hurricane Isaac.
"Of course we all got run out. We
stayed on the road seven days running from Isaac," said Vinnings. "We got back.
We had the opportunity to go check on our home, and unfortunately we were
Vinnings says coming to tailgate,
despite what was going on at home, was the perfect remedy to get him and his
wife get out of a slump.
"It's been a struggle the last
few weeks and stuff," said Vinnings."We had some other things going, but I'm
glad to be here."
Lola Patt and her family did not
have any damage to their north Louisiana home, but she realizes a lot of
her fellow tiger fans were not as lucky.
"Some people, I was told, was
home because they had no electricity. Their house was flooded, and they didn't
get to come," said Patt.
During this second week of the
season, the Patts got a taste of some bad luck. Mechanical problems with their
RV are now threatening their football fun.
"The generator went out," said
Patt. "Then a box caught fire."
Patt says this just a minor hurdle
for her group called the "Backrow Tailgaters." Her faith and her good luck
charm, Mike, have gotten her through more stressful times.
"He's been through two national
championships. He's been through a Sugar Bowl. His been to Texas Stadium," said
A group of fans ready to support
the boys in purple and gold no matter what!
This game is the third meeting of
LSU and Washington, the Huskies first visit since 1983.
