Party Girl loves waking up to that ever so slight chill in the morning because it can only mean one thing — football season! And I do so love my Ragin’ Cajuns! This season started out with a bang as a record crowd of 41,357 packed Cajun Field to witness UL and Southern’s first-ever meeting on Sept. 5. Tailgaiting was a blast, as usual, and there was no shortage of great food to eat. Gumbo, boudin, burgers, sausage, and hot dogs were plentiful, and I was greeted at every turn with a cold beer (too bad I couldn’t buy it in the stadium — what was that all about?). It was Southern hospitality (pun intended) at its finest. Putting the cherry on my sundae, the Cajuns dominated our neighbors to the east and enjoyed a 42-19 victory, sending Party Girl and every other UL fan into a frenzy of excitement. Keep it coming boys!
