Room during games because she did not want to watch. At the 1986 Alabama game in Birmingham, i had what we called "coat and tie" duty and it was my job to shadow Lou all weekend. We we were waiting to leave the stadium after the game and he and I were standing outside the loaded buses. He kept sending me over to tell Tim that he and his mother had to say goodbye because we really had to leave. Lou kept re-dispatching me over there, as he did not want to be the one to come between the mother and child reunion. I was caught between a rock and a hard place. As it turned out, we managed to make our chartered flight with time to spare.
