So another poster in a different thread gave me an idea. He said he was single the last time AU won in BR and now is married and has kids. Where were you the last time AU won in BR? 

It was my 14th birthday. I had just played in our homecoming game that Thursday before and got knocked out with a concussion. I had a collision with another player on my team and knocked me plum silly. I went back in and then went to the dance afterwards. It wasn't until that night I started feeling really bad. So That weekend I was barely able to watch the game let alone really enjoy it because I had a concussion. 

i wish i could tell you but my memory sux.

I was 15 and listening to the game on my portable radio while my dad and I sat out in a field dove hunting. Only time I've ever been dove hunting. I think I had 3 or 4 kills, but I was going crazy over the game. My mom taped it so, so Dad and I watched it the next day. I thought we were going to get embarrassed, which is why I went to the dove shoot in the first place.

I was a freshman at Auburn. Made my first rode trip with friends I had met in my short time on the plains. Also was my first time ever in Baton Rouge

This game was the weekend before the Fall Quarter started. 

Freshman year, I moved into my dorm room that Saturday while the game was on some terrible 19" TV/VCR Combo I brought from home.

My son was exactly one year old. Now he’s 23. I think I was working because I had recorded the game on ESPN2 and after Duval ran in the fake FG, I changed it to ESPN, so I must have just come home.

I was 19 years old working as the cleanup guy in the meat department at Sam’s Club in Florence, AL.  I listened to it, while I worked, on a little radio we had in the corner.  I thought Jim Fyffe was going to rattle that radio off into the floor!  I’m now 41 and less than 8 years from being able to retire as a high school teacher and football coach.

I was at the game, as well as the ‘97 game. I remember having a bit of a cold going to the game. Getting in the Louisiana heat and humidity and watching that beatdown was the perfect medicine. The fake FG by Duval happened so fast I didn’t realize how he got the ball until watching the highlights. I was with a girl I was dating at the time. I remember seeing how full their student section was 2 hours before kickoff, directly in front of us on the other side of the stadium, and watching the great Gerry Dinardo (ha!) get them pumped up before the game. By the third quarter, all you saw over there was tumble weed. After the game we drove to Biloxi and hit the casinos before heading back to Auburn.

The last time AU beat LSU in BR I was not a Christian.   I’ve been a minister of the gospel for 20 years now!

I was single.   My wife and I celebrated 20 years of marriage this past June.  We have 16 and 11 year old girls.   

Yeah, it’s been a while!
