| Outdoor Board|| Thinking about getting a travel trailer - Giantkiller on 3/1/15 at 10:25 pm|
Been looking at some used trailers to do some camping with the fam, plus use from time to time when I'm working out of town and wanna stay in something other than a hotel room. Looking on various sites, it seems like there's an abundance of 8-10 year old 26-29' trailers for pretty cheap. Some of you...
| O-T Lounge|| Absolute closest MG parade to BR on Fat Tuesday - Giantkiller on 2/16/15 at 9:41 am|
I'm kind of non-Mardi Gras enthusiast nowadays. We used to do Endymion, Bacchus, and a lot of the other majors in NO. After awhile, I kinda got over it and would just stay in town and do Southdowns and Spanish Town and that was good enough for me. Then we had kids and really just do St. Pats every y...

Just flipping through channels, and on ESPN's Longhorn Network right now, is a replay of the 2014 LBJ Civil Rights Summit. The description is as follows:
"Gay Marriage, A Civil Right' - Two attorneys argue against proposition 8 out of California before the US Supreme Court, which removed the righ...

My uncle said one of the superdome exits was under construction. Got me thinking about whether there was any parades or other things that might interfere with game traffic today....
| O-T Lounge|| Oaks of Sherwood Trying To Re-open Golf Course - Giantkiller on 2/6/15 at 1:59 pm|
Went to lunch with a former member who was telling me they're trying to launch a new plan to reopen. This time it's backed by the current tennis minded owners, who are interested in bringing back golf as a private club.
My dad used to be a member in the 90's and I grew up running around over ther...

Last couple of days I woke up with a runny nose and like clockwork, now have full sinus inflammation with green snot and the works. Making a doc appt for tomorrow, I looked on my calendar and realized this happens every 3 months. Almost to the day.
I recently started getting allergy shots again ...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Matt Ryan or Aaron Rodgers: fantasy championship - Giantkiller on 12/25/14 at 12:21 pm|
So I clawed my way from picking 8th in a 10 team league all the way to the 2 seed. This week I gotta decide between Rodgers or Ryan. Espn has Rodgers getting 25 Points and Ryan getting 27.
Who would you start? Ryan has never been favored to outscore Rodgers, but obviously in week 17, there's a l...
| Tiger Rant|| Do you ever watch SEC Network and say wtf?! - Giantkiller on 11/30/14 at 12:09 am|
Is this even something our fanbase wants?! I love LSU, but do I want to be in the same league as someone like Philys from Alabama? Listening to Finebaum's callers, I don't know if I can be on their wavelength. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Official way-too-early bowl prediction thread - Giantkiller on 11/27/14 at 11:30 pm|
Espn had us in the Belk or Taxslayer Bowl before tonight. Where do you assume, with huge guesses on what happens Saturday, that LSU ends up now? ...
| Tiger Rant|| Official Late Tailgate Arrival Thread - Giantkiller on 11/7/14 at 6:44 pm|
So me and the misses have season tix and haven't missed a game this season. Still, we can't leave the house till around 3 because finding a babysitter for more than 8 hours is a tough sell.
For all the games this year other than Ole Miss and Miss State, we've parked in Levee Lot or Hayfield. For...
| Pelicans Talk|| Fox Sports NO on Uverse in BR - Giantkiller on 10/28/14 at 7:16 pm|
It's on channel 1720 but says it's blacked out in my viewing area?
What the fricking frick? I switched to uverse this off-season and the bastards said we had FSNO.
I'm about to choke somebody. ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Matt Ryan (v Chi) or Aaron Rodgers (@ Mia) this week? - Giantkiller on 10/9/14 at 3:01 pm|
Matt Ryan's at Chicago this week, Rodgers has the 'Fins.
ESPN projects Ryan to get 25.9, Rodgers to get 24.8.
For some reason, my gut tells me Rodgers would be a better option. What would you do?...
| 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...
