Charm, grace and a joy for living are some of the attributes that make LSU fans so popular with Omahans during the College World Series.
Karen Barrett, an owner of Barrett’s Barleycorn Pub and Grill, described the Tiger fans who have made her bar their unofficial headquarters during CWS visits as “gracious, fun and very, very kind people.” When Louisiana State doesn’t make it to the CWS, the tourney just isn’t as much fun for Barrett — or as profitable.
“Last night, we were packed full of LSU fans and, just like always, you can tell how much they love being here in Omaha,” Barrett said Sunday. “Whenever we play the LSU fight song, every single one of their fans stands and sings — even this little 80-year-old man who was having a birthday was singing along. They have so much fun, and they’re so likeable.”
