VPCYG will go to Lafayette to watch the Acadiana Mudbugs indoor football team on Monday, June 29. The tickets will be $16.50 (+ tax) with your student ID.
We’ll leave Ville Platte at about 3:30 pm from the Sacred Heart parking lot. We’ll go to the Acadiana Mall to shop and eat. (But, we might tailgate at the arena. Maybe. We’ll see.)
The game will be at 7 pm at the Blackham Coliseum. The Mudbugs play the Austin Turfcats. I don’t know yet what time we’ll be back.
The Mudbugs are part of the Southern Indoor Football League. Right now, the Lake Charles Swashbucklers lead the league with a 6-1 record. The Turfcats are second (5-1); and the Mudbugs are third (4-3).
The Mudbugs have a Ville Platte connection: Derek Landry, former quarterback of the Ville Platte High Bulldogs, is the team’s defensive coordinator. (As a cool sidenote — I taught Derek as a freshman and sophomore at VPHS.)
The head coach is former New Orleans Saints quarterback John Fourcade. (As a cool sidenote — I was taught by Fourcade’s mom, and his dad was my principal, at Carencro Elementary.)
If you want to come, you must let me know NO LATER THAN Wednesday, June 24. I’ve got to arrange transportation. Let me know by calling me; or by leaving your name in the combox for this post.
