| O-T Lounge|| So there's this ridiculous free Kenny Chesney concert today... - Giantkiller on 8/16/14 at 8:50 am|
...at FloraBama and it's coincidentally the same day my family's annual beach vacation in Orange Beach starts. I heard there's been some snafu where they gave thousands of free tickets away to this thing, and now there's a hundred million rednecks descending upon it in hordes. I thought about taking...

| Tiger Rant|| Question about SEC Network - Giantkiller on 7/20/14 at 10:06 am|
Somebody told me that every single sec game will be available on ESPN3.
Their faq says 45 games will be televised. Is that just the games on the actual TV network?
Anybody know the answer to this?
SIAP. I'll hang up and listen. ...
| O-T Lounge|| Unsolved/Missing: LSU Students Kassie Lynn Federer/Eleanor C. Parker - Giantkiller on 7/14/14 at 2:31 pm|
Kind of a spinoff from those DTL threads last week, does anybody remember when that LSU student was murdered in 1999? Her name was Kassie Lynn Federer. Somebody had kicked in her apartment door and started shooting and they never found the killer.
It happened when I went to LSU and since they nev...
| Movie/TV Board|| Game of Thrones blew my mind - anything like it? - Giantkiller on 7/10/14 at 8:17 pm|
Me and the wife just binge watched all 40 episodes of GOT over the course of like 2 weeks. Every time an episode ended, I wanted to watch another one. I haven't watched a show like that in my life. The writing was incredible. I was obsessed.. But now that it's done, what next?
We're in the middl...
| O-T Lounge|| Summer colds: what's your go-to cold meds? - Giantkiller on 6/30/14 at 5:27 am|
Been hitting up Sudafed and 2 ibuprofen every four hours, with the occasional Afrin blast but it's starting to work less, so I'm kinda phasing that out.
Typical head and sinus congestion, and probably headed for my chest so I'll probably pick up some mucinex.
But I'm in hell. This is sucking...
| More Sports Board|| At what point does Tiger Wood's hype completely ware off? - Giantkiller on 6/27/14 at 2:54 pm|
"Tiger Near cut line" is a headline on ESPN.com.
At what point does he stop getting elevated coverage? Been awhile since his last major win.
Just wondering what the MSB thinks.
| Outdoor Board|| Fishing Diversion Canal area - New To Area - Giantkiller on 6/5/14 at 2:24 pm|
Long story short, my family used to have a camp in Grand Isle from the time I was a kid, all the way to Katrina. All my life, the only fishing I knew was specks and red fishing. For years since then, my dad has been kinda crushed and completely lost all heart to fish anything.
He and my mom rece...
| O-T Lounge|| New Roof Insurance Claim: Should I get estimates, or just hand over the check? - Giantkiller on 5/22/14 at 3:17 pm|
I called the insurance company about hail damage, and they sent out an adjuster. 5 days later, they send a letter saying that the roof needs to be replaced, throw out a dollar amount, and list the deductible. What's my next step?
Should I call roofers and get estimates? Or call the most reputable...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| If Benson would have moved the Saints to San Antonio permanently... - Giantkiller on 5/20/14 at 4:03 pm|
After Katrina, if Benson would have moved the Saints to San Antonio permanently, would the league have facilitated some move of a team here afterwards? I always kinda wonder what would have happened. No way the league would have expanded, but would Tagliabue have found some way to goad the Jaguars o...

Why in the eff isn't this game on TV? WHY?
| Tiger Rant|| 350 channels and they can't put LSU Baseball on TV. - Giantkiller on 3/23/14 at 3:42 pm|
I guess the cable TV lobbies are just too strong. We have to pay a fortune every month and the powers that be still can't give you what you want.
This is some bull shite. ...
| O-T Lounge|| Planting Woods? - Giantkiller on 3/20/14 at 3:28 pm|
If I planted like 100 pine trees in my backyard, could I grow my own woods?
By the way, this is a normal subdivision. The backyard is like 70 X 40. I'm sure the neighbors would complain, but I just wonder if it would even be possible......

| O-T Lounge|| Giving up facebook for lent - Giantkiller on 3/4/14 at 10:27 am|
I'm kind of embarrassed by how much I mindlessly check this dumb thing. It's almost just a subconscious ritual. I'm partially ready to just bail on it completely, but don't want to be all attention whorish and make some fruity "goodbye" post. So I think I'm gonna delete the mobile app tonight, delet...

Me and the Mrs are heading to LA next week. Looking for some cool stuff to do around the city.
One thing I kinda want to do is go to a Laker game, and since they're kinda shitty, tickets are reasonable.
But other than that, what would the OT do?...

Me and the Mrs ate there last night for V-Day, and I was looking up at it when we walked in. I've been there like a million times, but just realized it's got a pretty big Mexican kinda architecture vibe on the outside.
What did it used to be, if anything else? And when did it change? Anybody kno...

Woke up this morning to no water. Walked around the house to main shutoff and everything looked fine. All our mains are underground (it's a relatively newer house, under 20 years old). I ran a space heater near the main shutoff and eventually it all started running. But it seemed like the issue was ...
| More Sports Board|| Is Pete Carrol a better coach than Saban? Spurrier? Jimbo? - Giantkiller on 1/28/14 at 11:55 am|
Not flaming, but what would the perception be? Just winning an NFC Championship plus the titles at USC - he's already done more than a lot of coaches out there have ever managed to do. If he somehow manages to win a Super Bowl and hoists the Lombardi Trophy, would it cement him as one of the greates...
