From Baton Rouge...an olive branch to Cocks - Ghostfacedistiller
Speaking for myself, never had a problem with yall, rather enjoyed my experiences. Sorry about the guy in sec 20 destined to have his teeth punched out and I'm sure you're not fond of "Heyyyy bloooo" either. We don't need to fight. LSU and USC are great programs engaging in a gentlemanly gam...

Casual NBA fan here: what happened to Pacers? - Ghostfacedistiller
They looked like the Jazz of the 90s last two seasons, just not quite with the Heat but a solid, young team. Maybe not Jazz, but you know what I mean. How did they miss playoffs? Speaking of, what about Heat? Can't even make playoffs without James? TIA ...

Louisiana HB771 to Build Noah's Ark Theme Park? - Ghostfacedistiller
I see this story is circulating around the interwebs today. Through 3 solid minutes of research it appears to originate from Lamar White. I did not know of this person but apparently many on here do an he was behind the "Cassidy ripped off LSU" story. Looks like it's hit a bunch of liberal rags ...

What's the appropriate gesture from husband to wife if laid off? - Ghostfacedistiller
My buddy's wife is getting laid off and her last day is next Friday. She's known for a couple months but they're pretty devastated about it. She's pregnant (apparently got knocked up a few weeks before the pink slip came) and it's not a great situation. What would one do on the day of? Flowers? ...

Why is salary often "off limits" during early hiring process? - Ghostfacedistiller
I've been in the workforce over 10 years. I've hired and fired people. Worked in public and private sectors in multiple regions of the country. I don't know everything, but I'm not green either. I just don't get it, my company included. Why, culturally are we often (not always) programmed to pla...

As casual NBA I'm enjoying these playoffs - Ghostfacedistiller
What is it, 8 franchises in 30 years have won a title. Looks like that could end this year with new faces. He'll even if its Labron its freakin Cleveland, the most cursed sports city. The Bulls and Rockets have win in most of our lifetimes but totally different teams obviously than the 1990s. ...

The Atlantic article on Jindal/LSU - Ghostfacedistiller
Just FYI: [link=(http://theatln.tc/1QpVMek)]LINK[/link] [b]Bobby Jindal, Budget Cuts, and the Uncertain Fate of Louisiana's Universities[/b] The governor's state funding plan, if passed without legislative safeguards, threatens the survival of as many as a dozen public institutions—and the...

Do you consider this series to be Mizzou's first real taste of LSU Nation? - Ghostfacedistiller
Define "real" and "LSU nation" as you choose. This is Missouri's third year in the SEC and the programs have met on numerous occasions in most sports. For example, softball, soccer, and gymnastics have had some decent contests I believe. However, they have yet to meet on the football field (...

NYT OP-ED: Black Culture Is Not the Problem - Ghostfacedistiller
[quote]Then came Baltimore. The death of Freddie Gray, like those of Eric Garner, John Crawford III, Rekia Boyd and so many other unarmed African-Americans, [b]at first seemed to fit the all-too-familiar template — white cops, black suspect, black corpse.[/b] But unlike New York, Chicago and othe...

Most Old Money/Elitist college in Va/NC/SC? - Ghostfacedistiller
Which school in this area says old money/elitist/WASP/"white privilege" , etc.? Basically, what would be loathed by your typical white SJW as being "privileged," etc.? Duke is characterized as fitting the mold compared other big athletics schools, but Overall would say Hampton-Sydney College...

Another SEC Network/TV availability complaint thread - Ghostfacedistiller
Yeah, I'm beating a dead horse, but it's absurd this game is not televised on actual TV. ESPN2 was great last night, but there is non excuse to not put No.1 vs. 2 on a network devoted to the conference, in instead have Georgia/Auburn. It ought not be this way. ...

Brossette Family Fund Established by LSU (links included) - Ghostfacedistiller
This may have been posted, but IMO it's worth a Germans and it's own thread. Looks like LSU started a fund to assist the Brossette family, I'm assuming in a similar manner as was done with Alfred Blue in 2011. [link=(http://www.lsusports.net/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=5200&ATCLID=210037802)]B...

Can we talk about business discrimination laws? - Ghostfacedistiller
I must confess, I don't quite understand the nuances of most laws related to this subject and the protected groups involved. Indiana and other Freedom of religion laws appear to me to give religion as a reason to pick and choose customers. Fine. But why is that necessary? Why can bars and re...

Sunday shows appear to be in full assault on Indiana law - Ghostfacedistiller
GMA spent a good 5 mins discussing the backlash in a disgusted tone setting up former Clinton aide and campaign chief's political show on ABC. NBC and CBS were similar as I flipped. I've barely followed this story, but as I understand it aligns with current federal law about the RFRA, signed by ...
