LSU fans react to Tiger loss at College World Series

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

LSU fans watched on pins and needles from the get go Tuesday afternoon as the Tigers fell behind early in their elimination game at the College World Series. Fans like Thomas Allen, who called in sick from work could barely stand to watch.

"It's making me sick right now though," said Allen.

Not everyone was lucky enough to have the afternoon off like at Prescriptions to Geaux in downtown Baton Rouge where work was still on the agenda during the game, but just barely.

"We had a normal schedule until about noon and we adjusted our schedule accordingly," said pharmacist T.J. Woodard. "We're still filling prescriptions but we're down to essential busy now and we'll put anything not necessary on the back order today."

At TJ Ribs on Acadian, a number of the Purple and Gold faithful stayed until the final out. The fans showed frustration with the result but tried their best to see the silver lining.

"They get this far in college world series and they score three runs which is fewest they've ever scored in a College World Series it's just tough to see such a talented team that did well all year come out like this," said Ward.

"This is one of the best LSU teams of all time and so we're proud of them either way," added Woodard.

Another journey to Omaha will have to wait at least until next season but the difficult part for Tiger fans now will be knowing that so much of this College World Series has yet to be played with LSU no longer around.
