I would like to find some books or articles or anything that can show me what the fort looked like during the Civil War, Spanish-American War or when it was a training post durin...View Topic - Replies (4)

When did the NBA implement the rule where a full timeout moves the ball to half court? I know it was made to make for more exciting games, but I hate how a team can get bailed out by just having a timeout. It removes some strategy to the end of a game IMO....View Topic - Replies (4)

Shortly after the Ides of March festival Julius Caesar was stabbed 23 times by a number of conspirators, including Brutus. I have heard both sides - some that say Caesar's death was good for Rome others argue it was fatal to the republic. Fun to analyze. P.S. We need a history board....View Topic - Replies (16)

Murdered 19 years ago on March 9, 1997 in LA California. His death, in my opinion, was the beginning of the end of main stream rappers speaking out. Thanks for hiring the hit man Suge Knight. Aside the point - he was an amazing talent, with a very unique flow. Maybe rap isn't your thing (use to b...

Where does the MLS plan on expanding next? Also any updates on a team happening in NO? I know it's a pipe dream. There's a big soccer following in the Big Easy, plus you have Tulane's new stadium. I think the city can do better than the Jesters. Any input appreciated....

I really enjoy watching this movie. I think it gets better each time. Is Daniel Plainview's story supposed to be looked at as tragic? Sorta like a Darth Vader. Or is he an inherently twisted/evil man - sorta like the Joker? Just interested in hearing people's thoughts. Also what makes him susp...View Topic - Replies (15)
