LSU topples Duke...

The folks in Baton Rouge are pretty happy this morning! In the biggest upset of the NCAA tourney so far, LSU toppled #1 ranked Duke last night.

The city of Baton Rouge has almost doubled in size since Hurricane Katrina. This has caused many challenges. Baton Rougeans are big sports fans and I know this win will be a big boost to their spirits.

I saw the game on TV and had the impression that this team could go all the way. Of course I'm a little biased as I've been an LSU fan since living in Baton Rouge in the late Sixties and early Seventies.
