If there were still any doubts that Bobby Jindal will run for governor ...

Smelling the Roses
LSU is heading to the Rose Bowl for the first time in history, according to several news reports over the past couple of days. Stories that Rose Bowl officials were committed to taking LSU, regardless of what happens in the final games of the regular season this Saturday began yesterday when the Boston Globe cited anonymous sources with the Rose Bowl confirming that LSU was in and would be matched up against either Michigan or USC (if USC suffers a shocking defeat to UCLA this Saturday). Baton Rouge TV station WAFB also cited an unnamed Rose Bowl source in a story about LSU playing in Pasadena on New Year's Day. Sports Illustrated, the L.A. Times, MSNBC and Fox Sports have all been echoing the news today. With the word out, LSU fans have already requested 32, 000 tickets to the game, 4,000 more commitments than the Rose Bowl hopes to get from each school. I think it's safe to say that, at this point, if LSU by chance doesn't make it into the Rose Bowl, there may be a few upset Tiger fans.
