Texas, Carolina, Kansas City, just to name the obvious ones.
But why not Louisiana? With our love of cooking outdoors, our history of breaking down and cooking whole animals, and the various cultures that influence our cuisine, we should have made our mark on the BBQ world.

A friend of mine posted a long rant on her wall. Apparently she was banned for two days after someone reported her for indicent photos of a child. From her post, the pics in question are one of the kid (around 3 years old) nude from behind. The other is one of him in a bathtub from the chest up.

Maybe Cyclops, Wolverine, Storm, Beast, Iceman, Colossus, and Prof X vs Godzilla.
I say Zilla in a rout.

A PF just opened about 5 minutes from my work. With their monthly dues being so cheap ($10-$20/month) I am thinking of joining.
I know they don't offer much in the line of free weights, but I'm looking more to tone up and trim down so I'd look to utilize the treadmills and machine weights.

Looking over most lists, the consensus top 5 seems to be:
3 - 5. Kareem, Russel, Bird (order changes)
But can Shaq or Duncan make a claim to enter the top 5? And who do you replace them with? Both players have all the necessary awards and hardware to warrant their choice.

Poster on Saints Report (who I believe has legit sources from his history) said the Saints are in talks to trade up to #14 if the right player is there.
That would be quite a jump, and I would guess they'd be targeting a receiver like OBJ or a corner like Gilbert.
Slim chance it happens, but...

Right now my prediction is this:
Houston takes Clowney with the #1 pick. Bridgewater continues to slide while the other QB's come off the board. The Panthers, needing big time receiver help, trade up to j...
