They were really on the ball. From using Neck between downs, and whatever that song was they were playing on defensive 3rd down. The sound of the band in the crisp cold air, with some bourbon warming my belly; it was a great night. Thanks Tiger Band for helping making the LSU games an experience. :c...

Whether you loved it or hated it, there’s no denying the fact that Prometheus was pretty polarizing — most obviously because everyone reading this probably either loved it or hated it. Among those who hated it, the criticisms are generally focused on the script. Character motivations were u...

Forgive me if I'm wrong. But this has worked out to be good for Obama. If the republicans relent and negotiate with Obama, then he gets what he wants. If the repubs stick to their guns, and tax rates go up, Obama can just blame the repubs and still get what he wants; more taxes. Am I missing somethi...

Since when is he on board with this? I remember him saying that he was "coming around" to the idea a couple of years ago. But I don't think he ever came out and said he was for it.
