Over at SyracuseFan.com, SUTomCat posted a recap of his trip to New Orleans to watch the Syracuse Orange outlast the Tulane Green Wave. He had a good time, as expected. He also had a random run-in with a girl obsessed with SU backup QB, Ridiculously Good Looking Charley Loeb, which was slightly less expected (though understood).
On Sunday, STO, his daughter and I heading to the Bayou for a round of golf at a course called La Tour. It is in the middle of nowhere, 48 miles southwest of New Orleans. Nice course. Was in excellent shape. Other than the 20-30 MPH winds, it was fun to play.
We saw some baby gators on some of the holes, and some snakes, herons, and cranes. Beautiful area. At the turn, we stopped by the clubhouse to get a bite to eat. There were two young girls manning their restaurant. Both were blonde, both wore Saints game uniforms (most everyone in the state was wearing them on this day) and both were very outgoing and personable.
One of them made eye contact. Here is the conversation that ensued:
"Syracuse? You boys from Syracuse?"
Yes, I am from Binghamton and he is from just outside Syracuse.
"Do you know Charley Loeb?"
I am dumb struck. How in the world could this youngster, maybe 18 or 20 years old, possibly know Charley Loeb?
Yes, I do. He is the 2nd string QB. How in the world do you know him?
"Charley Loeb is the handsomest boy in the whole wide world."
The story ends with, "If only Sean Keeley were there to see the whole thing. I think he would have exploded."
I have to agree.
