This article is well written and thoughtful and should really resonate with all sports fans. I was particularly taken aback by his comment, "I was born in this dirt." I was raised in a pretty bad neighborhood, too, and I would hate for anyone to judge me because it.

I'm always looking for neat gifts for Tiger Fans--something new that wasn't out there last year. Here are a couple of finds (though I can't post pics because I'm technologically challenged).
Game day boots from Neiman Marcus $399.

| LSU Ticket Exchange|| Where are the LSU fans sitting at the Chick-fil-A Bowl? - wrlakers on 12/19/12 at 1:04 pm|
On StubHub, the LSU side consists of section 130 to 140 plus 101 to 106 or thereabouts. I'm only listing the bottom sections because tickets are so cheap. On this board, people are selling sections 107 and 108, which are endzone seats nearer to the Clemson side.
If face is $90 and tickets on St...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Is Andre Roberts a starter? - wrlakers on 10/2/12 at 11:20 pm|
I drafted Andre Roberts and started him this week because of the Hakeem Nicks injury. Nicks is still uncertain and Roberts plays on Thursday.
229 yards and 4 TDs so far. Is it time to make him a starter?

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Is anyone still starting DeSean Jackson? - wrlakers on 11/27/11 at 11:29 pm|
I thought with Maclin out that Jackson would explode. Instead, he's dropping TD passes and getting benched. I know he's a head case, but I thought he'd be performing with his contract on the line.
Is it time for him to ride the pine? ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Is Kevin Kolb injured? - wrlakers on 10/30/11 at 11:42 pm|
I didn't see the game. He has an injury cross next to his name on CBS. This is critical. I droppped Bradford and picked up Kolb because I need an upright QB for week 9 when Stafford is off.
I need an injury update quick.
BTW, my other options are Palmer, Beck, Moore, Gabbert, Tavaris Jack...

12 team 16-man rosters. Start two RBs and three WRs, no TE, no flex.
Need Ridley as a possible alternative to Lynch when Turner (starter) and Starks (primary back up) are both on bye.
Considering Heyward-Bey for bye week when Lloyd (starter) and Floyd (primary back up) are on bye as an altern...

From The Dallas Morning News, Sunday, February 13, 2011.

At 6-0, 214 pounds and as strong as an ox, Taylor ran with a ferocity few backs ever have.

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Is it time to permanently bench Jay Cutler? - wrlakers on 11/11/10 at 1:15 pm|
Cutler was on fire at the start of the season, then the Giants game and he's been off track since.
He's got a tough match up this week, too.
Is it time to replace Cutler even if the alternative is not all that great?
My back up is Palmer. The wavier wire is at the bottom of the barrel (e...

After watching that debacle they tried to pass off as a football game last night, I have grave concerns. Putting aside the suicide watch that was implemented after Cutler's negative points snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, there are other issues to worry about.
I haven't heard anything a...
