I talked to a friend at work today who told me that his nephew had been down at Tiger Stadium for the LSU/Northwestern State University laugher last night. But, screw the ball game...I mean, we only scored 9 more points against the miserable Demons than we did against the miserable Ducks last week.
Anyway, he told me that his nephew said he'd never heard Tiger Stadium so quiet. I mean, it was like you could hear a pin drop in Death Valley. He told me about this deal that The Tiger Band did.
It's a memorial tribute to the victims of 9/11/01. And, most especially a tribute to one of our LSU grads, Navy Lt. Michael Scott Lemana, who died that day at The Pentagon. His family joined the band on the field as they performed.
A Gooble Search turned up this bit of tribute from the Louisiana State Senate in 2005, too.
I wish I'd have known Lt. Lemana. I bet he was aces up...
