LSU is #1 in Afghanistan too

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Turns out that SEC football, particularly LSU's brand, isn't just popular in the United States. That billboard pictured above that wants you to know who's number one can be found in Afghanistan.

Now, odds are the message was spray-painted on the billboard by an American soldier currently in Afghanistan, but I'm going to pretend that it was done by an 11-year old child in the country who has never seen a single college football game in his life. It's just that the magic of Les Miles is so great that it transcends all borders, religion, and politics.

Oh, and the 11-year old kid that I like to pretend spray-painted it? Yeah, he's a Harris Poll voter too. They let everybody vote in that thing.
