LSU football head coach Ed Orgeron is featured on a float at Mardi Gras.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that LSU football fans are still celebrating their national championship win from last month.
And it also shouldn’t be a surprise that LSU fans are in full force celebrating down in New Orleans for Mardi Gras.
One of the floats at Mardi Gras features Ed Orgeron holding two chickens up with the logos of Alabama and Clemson, along with his signature “Geaux Tigers” catchphrase.
Check it out.

After the season LSU had in 2019, Tigers fans can celebrate as long as they want.
And I imagine they probably will, all the way through spring and summer, straight into the 2020 season.
Oddly enough, Orgeron being used as a float coincides with his first time riding a float.
After the Tigers’ championship celebration in January, Coach O told WAFB’s Jacques Doucet that he had never been on a float before.
That of course changed after LSU won it all.

“They wanted to do it. They made a commitment.”

I can’t imagine there’s a better time on earth than when LSU fans get to enjoy Mardi Gras while (still) celebrating a 15-0 season and a win in the national championship game.
I’ve heard plenty of people say the Super Bowl is the best event of the year, but I think I’d put Mardi Gras with LSU fans celebrating a championship at the top of the list.
