Just Another Reason I Love LSU Fans

In case you haven’t noticed, this blog isn’t your typical sports blog.  I’m not going to talk about last night’s basketball game, or give you a preview of the World Series.  What I will do however, is talk about FANS.  This blog is made by a FAN, about FANS, for FANS.  There is nothing that gets me more pumped than seeing a fanbase go above and beyond the call of duty, and LSU fans have a good history of doing just that.  Not only is Tiger Stadium one of the most intimidating places to play a game on the field, but the Tiger fans have been trying to do some intimidating off the field as well.

This week LSU fans have gotten ahold of Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy’s cell phone number and have been bombarding him with texts and calls.  I’d be willing to guess these people aren’t calling to wish him good luck either.

The best thing about this is that it isn’t the first, second, or even the third time they’ve done this.  This has happened numerous times the last few years, so much so that it is starting to become a tradition!  Here at That Fan, one thing that makes us happy is a great fan tradition, and this is one for the record books.

Earlier this year it was Florida head coach Urban Meyer, backup QB John Brantley and wide receiver Riley Cooper.

"Urban, Did U Get My Text?"

Last year they tracked down the number for Georgia running back Knowshon Moreno.  A couple games later it was Alabama QB John Parker Wilson.  Two years ago they dialed in to Tim Tebow.  All three players later taunted the LSU crowd with a “call me” signal after scoring touchdowns.

"Hey Tiger fans, can you hear me now??"

In case you were wondering, LSU won vs. Florida in 2007 and Tebow had a decent game.  LSU lost to Georgia last year and Moreno rushed for 163 yards and a score.  They also lost to Alabama last year although Wilson had a poor game.  Florida did beat LSU this year, although it was a close game.  Maybe the calls had some impact, maybe they didn’t, but it sure is fun to pretend that they did! 

Let me be the first to say that on behalf of That Fan, I do not condone any fans making threatening calls, but I see absolutely nothing wrong with (and encourage in a sinister sort of way) calling and texting a player non-stop to try and get in his head.  Good job LSU, you have made That Fan proud!

  1. […] LSU fans being total cum rags has been a running theme on this site in the history of sports.  Everything they do is incredi-douche, and way over the top.  Everything.  They suck so hard that even things that would be cool if other fan-bases did it become instantly shitty when they do it.  This time they’ve gotten a hold of Alabama QB Greg McElroy’s cell phone.  I’m sure that collection of voice mails and texts messages is practically Shakespearean in it’s combined brilliance.  <thatfan> […]
