Our city is full of excitement as we look forward to our top-ranked LSU Tigers coming home to play two consecutive conference games.

As we prepare to welcome the opposing teams to our house, let’s remember to conduct ourselves as top-ranked fans. Wildcats and Gators aren’t just “tiger bait,” they are our guests.

They spend a lot of time and money to get here, and they provide a big boost to our local economy, so let’s roll out the red carpet.

When opposing fans pass your tailgate on Saturday, don’t yell at them. Invite them in for refreshments. Show them the world-class southeast Louisiana hospitality we’re famous for.

Geaux Tigers, and go BR!
