The second battle, In case you didn't know, was with the Detroit, Lions. Man, they had us worried at first. Somehow we went from two people watching the game to six. I am soooo glad I got extra pizza and a king cake. We celebrated the win by setting off a sparkly thing left over from New Years and the neighbors came out screaming, "WHO DAT!" Makes my heart swell for all the black and gold love we have for our boys.
|King cakes are a carnival tradition and are usually purple, green and gold, |

|My son and the appropriate celebratory rocket lighting device. No he doesn't smoke, but we always carry a lighter because they do come in handy.|
|E. P. Mike the LSU cat. Get it? She's gold! We're looking haughty and confident this morning. |
