My daughter in law gave my son two tickets to the Sugar Bowl for his Christmas present. He invited ME to go with him. We're coming down Wednesday and spending a few days with them. Look for me on TV if you watch the game! RTR!

Will watch for you on TV. When I left work today, they had done lots of work in Champions Square to get ready. Changed banners, set up booths, etc. And I get to work from home Thursday because of the game, woohoo! I'll be in my flannel jammies with no make up all day.

lolly,
Is this your first time at the Sugar Bowl? Be prepared for an outrageously good time. I have attended several Sugar Bowls. The college fans are a wild bunch. Don't forget your earplugs. They know how to hoot and holler. They make the Saints fans look like a kindergarten class by comparison. It's a crazy party for sure...anything goes. I've had a cup of beer spilled on me. I saw a fight break out next to me in the restroom. Bring a large bankroll for the food and beer. Give yourself plenty of time for arrival and departure...especially if parking in the dome parking garage. Consider bringing throat lozenges. Many people leave the game with a hoarse voice. Enjoy your visit in New Orleans.

When I was a Boy Scout I would usher at the Sugar Bowl in Tulane Stadium. We always had a good time. Enjoy the day.

Big Dale, I've never been to a bowl game, but have been to many college games. I know all about the loud and rowdy fans...I'm one of them! Thankfully, parking won't be a problem. My son's office is within very easy walking distance to the Dome and we will be parking there. I am so excited!

It's 7am here, and I finished my workout as the second half was starting. I feel like I'm looking for Waldo. Where's Lolly?

Chawlie, I was there with my son and, as always, I'm minding my own business and all heck breaks loose around me.

If you'll look when the camera pans right, you'll see me with a crimson sweater and a houndstooth scarf. My son has on a dark red shirt. I am telling her she "just needs to simmer down."

I've been contacted by DOZENS of friends today who spotted me immediately. See if you can find me!

The drunk frat boys and the drunk Bama fan had been mouthing back and forth at each other the entire game. LOTS of blame to go around here. As an aside, she does not represent MY state. :)

My goodness! I was just kidding about the Waldo reference, but all of a suddenly :o there's our very own Lolly in a famous "viral" video clip!

Was your cooking orientation coming through when you advised her to "simmer down"? :lol:

You're right: the only state this girl represents is a state of inebriation. :x

I saw you again in the final seconds of the clip, just to the left of the cop.

Before you posted the youtube link I had seen the clip on yahoo at http://news.yahoo.com/sugar-bowl-tensio ... R2dGlkAw--, but had failed to find Lolly. Somebody at yahoo chose a good sound track.

Sorry your team lost. It was a tough, hard-fought game.
