NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) -- The big Alabama vs LSU game is this Saturday at 7 p.m., and if you're a displaced Bama fan there is one bar in New Orleans you can go to watch the game. The Rusty Nail in the Warehouse district.

Its co-owner, David Brown, founded the bar when he returned to New Orleans after attending the University of Alabama and had no where to watch his beloved Crimson Tide.

However, Brown married an LSU fan and they are now a house divided, so he welcomes LSU fans into his bar as well.

Their 4-year-old daughter was born the day before what many consider the game of the century, the 2011 game, and so they placed a bet: the winning team would determine who they raised their daughter to be a fan of.

Brown now has a newborn son, and he will not be placing a similar bet to his wife this weekend as he does not want the entire house against him.

The Rusty Nail will be predominately Alabama fans on Saturday but about 40% LSU fans, according to Brown.

And the two somehow, peacefully coexist, even on game day.
