For the second year in a row, the Fitbirds have taken to the LSU campus for their annual Tailgate Ride. For those that don't know, the Tailgate Ride tradition began one year ago after a group training ride on the levee. Tired and thirsty, the group rode around campus until they came upon the early morning game day setup of one of their team member's nephews. As the tents and cooler had been left unattended, it was a unanimous decision that this favorite nephew would want his auntie and her friends to imbibe in a cold one (or two). Beers were chugged and the training ride was finished with grins all around. It was not until later that we learned that we had commandeered the wrong tailgate cooler and had stolen (borrowed) an innocent tailgater's beer. In true Fitbird fashion, the beer was replaced with an additional beer donation for the mistake, and the story went down in Fitbird history.
