LSU fans are known to be a favorite of the Omaha natives, for the way they party once they arrive and by the large number of LSU fans that attend the College World Series, even if the Tigers themselves don't make it.
Local LSU fans Chandler Singleton and Levi Reagan and their families made the trip this year, and the two Glenbrook graduates even made the front page of the Omaha World Herald. In a story on a new daily ticket policy, Singleton and Reagan were featured.
From the World Herald:
The daily reserved seat ticket sale went slicker than an oyster on the half shell this morning at TD Ameritrade Park.
There were 187 people in line for lottery numbers at 9:30 a.m. By 10:15, all had walked away with tickets.
First to emerge with seats: Levi Reagan, 18, of Minden, La. He a upgraded four general admission seats for four seats seven rows behind home plate. It cost $17 apiece.
How's feel about the new daily ticket sale system.
"Feels great," Reagan said, as a buddy walked up to edit his remarks.
"Ecstatic, use some of those big English words you're learning at private school," Chandler Singleton told him.
Singleton and Reagan were pleased with their tickets and with their brief notoriety at the College World Series.
