BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

CBSSports.com blogger Jerry Hinnen wrote about something that will have fans of the LSU Tigers drooling.

How passionate can an LSU fan be? Well, just ask Lafayette's Don Domingue, who bought a yellow Lamborghini Gallardo and then decided to add purple Tiger stripes.

SB Nation's Spencer Hall sat down with Domingue to talk about the car. Here's a brief part of the interview:

Hall: Did you buy it knowing you were going to paint it in LSU colors?

Domingue: No. I drove it a while, and saw the yellow when I was watching a football game and noticed that the helmet color was the same color as my car, and I just put two and two together. I thought my car would look cool with some purple tiger stripes if I took it to the game. Just so happened we had three home games in a row coming up--Alabama, Mississippi State, and Ole Miss--and I thought I'd put the stripes on, go to the home games, and then after a few months take 'em off. I didn't realize the reaction they would get. Nobody wanted me to take the stripes off after that.
