Fans look forward to a Saints win after LSU season opener loss


BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD)- After a sad day in Tiger Stadium, fans in Baton Rouge are hoping a Sunday night Saints win will cheer them up.

“I do have hope for the Saints today,” LSU fan Rob Martin said at the Walk-On’s near Corporate Blvd on Sunday. “It’s a tough game, Green Bay is really good but they are at home so when they are at home, they usually play better so we hope they are going to be alright”

LSU lost its season opener to Mississippi State on Saturday, September 26 with a final score of 44-34.

“Mississippi State played well, but LSU played bad,” Martin said. “When you have that combination you’re not going to win.”

Walk-On’s manager Josh Seals said NFL gamedays are good for business, but he remains unsure whether Saturday’s LSU disappointment will affect turnout of Saints fans–many of whom are also Tiger fans–Sunday night.

“Saints games are hard to predict because a lot of people went out last night for the LSU game,” Seals said. “They might be taking it easy today.”

Despite COVID-19 restrictions, Walk-On’s managers were happy to see Tiger fans return to the restaurant for the first game of the college football season Saturday.

“It was a very live crowd,” Seals said. “Lots of hollering going on, the ups and downs of the game, it made for a fun environment, except for the loss.”

The Tigers will play the Vanderbilt Commodores on Oct. 3.

In the meantime, Martin says Sunday is all about,” Who Dat!”
