Just to put a few things into perspective -- some simple facts from the 2014 Baseball Tournament:
Of the 16 top-seeded schools that entered regionals last weekend, only SEVEN advanced to the Super Regional Round.
4 #2 seeds and 4 #3 seeds advanced, along with a #4 seed.
Of the 8 nationall...

Saw a kid in carpool getting dropped off today. Probably 1st or 2nd grade boy, mom kissed him on the lips as she dropped him off.
Yay or nay?

What are some of your favorite moments in movies where had something simple have been different, the entire movie plot would have ended immediately?
Mine -- first five minutes of Star Wars (Episode IV), when they choose not to blast the escape pod out of the sky. Why so conservative with the las...
| Movie/TV Board|| Just started 24 on Netflix - DrEdgeLSU on 12/20/12 at 6:08 am|
In 4 nights, we have watched 12 episodes.
Are all seasons this engaging? I can't imagine having to wait a week or longer between episodes given the cliffhangers at the end of each episode.
| Tiger Rant|| Bowl Matchups - Ranking Analysis - DrEdgeLSU on 12/3/12 at 3:55 pm|
Because it feels necessary to do so, I decided to take a look at the bowl games. There are three types of bowl games -- games that pit 2 unranked teams against each other, games that pit a ranked team vs an unranked team, and games that pit two ranked teams against each other.
I was interested t...

I have been cooking on thing pretty steadily since I got it in May. The past few times I have cooked, though, I have had a hard time controlling flames inside the grill. I've done it with ju...
| Tiger Rant|| End of half scoring drives, 2009-current (OFFENSE) - DrEdgeLSU on 11/8/12 at 10:52 am|
Per request, I've done the same analysis for LSU's offense in end of half/game scoring drives. Again, generally speaking, talking about drives that occurred within the last 3 min of a half. I'll list the game, the drive & result, TOP and score afterwards.
[u][b]2009: 4-0 in these games[/b][/u]
| Tiger Rant|| End of half scoring drives, 2009-current (DEFENSE) - DrEdgeLSU on 11/8/12 at 10:04 am|
Did some research into what seems to be a tendency for LSU's defense to give up long scoring drives at the ends of halves. We've seen it a few times this year -- SC, A&M and Bama most notably. Here is a breakdown of drives that occurred, under Chavis, in the last 3:00 of halves. The score in () i...
| Political Talk|| Runoff for Presidential electoral votes - DrEdgeLSU on 11/7/12 at 12:49 pm|
Not that it would matter in this election, but theoretically we could be looking at a closer race with FL outstanding. Something like O-268, R-241, with 29 votes still on the table.
In FL, neither candidate received a majority of the votes. (It's 49.9 to 49.1 or something like that). Why would...

Wife and I get a "date night" for the first time since moving to Dallas in August. What are some fun places to hit? We have two young kids so preferably a place we wouldn't normally go with the kids.
| Political Talk|| Charitable contributions - how would these change if they weren't tax deductible - DrEdgeLSU on 10/26/12 at 9:12 am|
If charitable contributions were not tax deductible, to what degree would they increase/decrease?
This stems from the "government has to make things fair because Jesus said we should help out the poor" thread. Would people be more/less generous if there was no government incentive to do so?...
