    Walk around the stadium once...right before kickoff. Did it every time last year...no losses. Gotta keep the tradition alive...

    I loved when that crazy son of a /// with the DRUMS would do the RAGIN on one side and then turn and do the CAJUN with the other side---Crazy and fun

    Yes I am very prejudiced but I love being invited with all the former players on the field pre game to form the lines that the team runs out between---Can't help but get a lil misty eyed!!!!

    Crank up the stereo system & play the UL Fight Song when the busses pass buy our tailgate spot. Change into my gameday jersey right before we go into the stadium.

    I don't think that the KdeC plays this thing up enough

    For instance the doubloons are fabulous and are cherished by visitors---But there is a need for more chicken type outfits

    -I think that they could probably get some kind of mask/costume made that could sell for 5-10 bucks Hell a great deal if you just count the tasting of the food

    -Got to admit one of my favorite post game rituals is getting the stuff from our tent and passing by the K de C on the way to the car and "Picking up" a sweet for the road!!!! Also singing Cajun Roll-on to the group!!!!

    Definately....Kyles jersey had to be placed over the back seat on the right side with his number facing forward and his name facing back. Also Old Tyme always Friday night before the game. Also had to get a hug from Ky, Brad, Lance and Ross during the Cajun Walk!!!

    Superstitions are time killers designed to leave you with a "blank mind" which in a weird way helps a player or fan relax.

    I would rather a player with total focus.

    I remember Danny Massiatte would walk up the third base line a little. Turn and and toe tap 3 times, left right left, then hit each toe of his cleats with the bat.

    We love to watch the Cajun walk and band march around the stadium before the games especially when the bands plays "Do Watcha Wanna" before entering the Cajun Field.

    We have to keep this going and get more people to do it...call it the fan walk or something like that.
