This Monday was college football's national championship game between LSU and (that other team from my state) Alabama. If that combination sounds familiar, you're right, it is a "rematch" from this game we saw in November. A few of our friends who attended LSU chose Bar 718 in South Park Slope to watch the game. We ordered in some pizza and Mexican food, had some beers, and settled in to watch a pretty painful game. I was convinced LSU was going to win, but that was not the case. Not only did they lose, but they managed to score zero points.
Here is the projection screen we watched the game on. Sadly, it's the end of the game and Alabama is celebrating and accepting their trophy.
The LSU crowd cleared out almost immediately. I'm pretty sure they had to run home and cry themselves to sleep. Keep your chins up! You're still an awesome team. There is always next year!
On the bright side, the national title stays in the state of Alabama for the third year in a row. No doubt the trophy will set off on its Wal-Mart tour very soon :)
Phew! Football season is over! Time for a nice vacation until next fall!
