Louisiana senator helps LSU fan with keg stand

Sunday September 21st, 2014

LSU couldn't successfully complete a Hail Mary throw to win its game against Mississippi State, but another kind of Mary experienced all sorts of success Saturday. 

Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu stopped by the LSU tailgate before the game in Death Valley to cheer on her team, mingle with the electorate ... and facilitate a young man's keg stand.

The senator guided the keg hose to a man's lips as he did performed the traditional vertical handstand, The Hill's Alexandra Jaffe reported

Sen. Landrieu is up for re-election on Nov. 4. She is trailing in most straw polls and is considered one of the most vulnerable sitting U.S. senators.

While she received her baccalaureate degree from LSU,  her top challenger, Republican Bill Cassady, has two degrees from his time in Death Valley. We'll have to wait until election to see whether Sen. Landrieu was successful at outflanking her opponent on support for the Tigers. 

Geaux Mary?
