whblnrezrqbupza20080106210457.jpgTomorrow’s a dreaded day on one hand because the faculty and staff where I work at the only two-year campus in the LSU System (LSU-Eunice) report back to work after the holiday layoff. But one mitigating circumstance will make  checking in a little easier: We’ll approach the hour to hour routine Monday as the countdown to the showdown Monday night in New Orleans when the respective flagship campuses of Louisiana and Ohio settle the issue of the national championship. That should quicken everyone’s gait by a step or two to help us get through the day.

Even though we’re eighty miles west of Baton Rouge and the big sister campus and yet another hour further removed from the Super Dome where the main action will take place, we will hype ourselves tomorrow by wearing the colors to work. If all goes well Monday night, then the rest of the back-to-work week might even be slightly fun.

So in the interest of improving morale in the work place,

Geaux, Tigers!
