| Music Board|| guitar string recommendations..... - TigerTreyjpg on 2/1/13 at 2:57 pm|
I've been using Ernie Ball light guage strings for as long as I remember, 'cause that's what I was told to use 20 years ago.
Anything out there that's a ton better these days?
PS - I'm a pretty crappy player, with a crappier ear, and do a horrible job of going from 440 to open G/drop D (thus...

I'm too busy right now to read the whole thread....
1. How is your little girl?
2. How old is she?
3. Did it scar her face anywhere man?
Man, I have a little girl (well, she's actually 19 but she'll always be my little girl), and shite man, my heart's breaking for you right now.
| Outdoor Board|| Thoughts on the term "green trout"........ - TigerTreyjpg on 1/29/13 at 1:25 pm|
It's an interesting term. As a kid, growing up in south La, but having parents from north La (and a camp up here), I thought the term was funny, and couldn't imagine how it came to be.
I now understand, as here's a text I got from a buddy a couple of days ago.....

| Outdoor Board|| Anyone ever get "beached" by a barge? - TigerTreyjpg on 1/22/13 at 1:26 pm|
Spawned by the "is it safe in to run a 14 foot flat boat in the MS River" thread.
I had never seen this phenom before, but about a month ago, I was in a 23 foot bay boat, fishing at the mouth of some little bayou that flowed into Chef Pass.
Huge arse barge comes by, and it's wake starts sucking...

I'm sure this has been discussed here before, so please forgive my german topic. I rarely come over here.
Anyway, I've got a question for those in the know about BP oil claims involving Florida beach property, as I've heard many rumors, etc.
I'm a CPA, and have several business clients filing...

Does this day or two of cold weather, with a warming trend after, screw up the trout bite for this coming weekend?
| Outdoor Board|| Anyone of the good negotiating pursuasion post on the OB? - TigerTreyjpg on 12/7/12 at 11:25 am|
I'm a horrible negotiator. I've found a weapon at a pawn shop here in Monroe that I want, and need the services of someone from your church to negotiate the price....
| Outdoor Board|| Best gun selection/Monroe pawn shops? - TigerTreyjpg on 12/3/12 at 10:52 am|
I need a "throw in the bottom of the boat" type shotgun. 870/BPS type 12 guage.
Who in West Monroe/Monroe's got the best used selection?...
| O-T Lounge|| What's going on in Monroe right now? - TigerTreyjpg on 11/7/12 at 5:12 pm|
There's West Monroe law over here in Monroe around the bridge, buncha helicopters flying around......
Looks like straight outa Compton.
Anyone know what's up?
The lady that cleans our office just came in, told me about it, and said there's LE types everywhere around the bridge....
| Tiger Rant|| If LSU beats Bama, it will be because? - TigerTreyjpg on 10/22/12 at 1:32 pm|
1. Alabama is just not that much better, and Tiger Stadium is the difference in otherwise evenly matched game.
2. Alabama is untested. They'll be shell shocked to look up in the 4th quarter, and find the score close, and won't know how to play in a game like that.
3. Mett finally "gets it", an...
| Tiger Rant|| Hannagriff (sp) after the game. - TigerTreyjpg on 10/22/12 at 11:23 am|
This may have been discussed (recently or a while back), but did anyone hear Hannagriff say that he knows for sure we practiced a bunch of different stuff prior to last year's NC game, then, for whatever reason, didn't run it?
I'm a CLM fan, but if that's the case, that's not only troublesome, bu...
| Tiger Rant|| Questions for knowledgable fans/coaching types - TigerTreyjpg on 10/13/12 at 9:37 am|
You know how you hear about defenses putting a "spy" on a player? Like maybe on a running QB?
Do offensive players ever put a "spy" on a defensive player, say someone like Clowney? Or any guy that can almost single handledly disrupt an offense's planned play?
Just curious if it something off...
| Outdoor Board|| Does your wife/SO cook squirrels? - TigerTreyjpg on 10/11/12 at 7:22 pm|
I lost my mom about 6 years ago. Although she was highly educated, she grew up dirt poor, and knew how to cook the game I killed. If I killed a mess of squirrels, she'd even make me seperate the young ones from the old ones, as it made a difference in how she'd prepare them. So my question is thi...
| Tiger Rant|| This game will be marked as the beginning of something, imo. - TigerTreyjpg on 10/11/12 at 11:48 am|
Up to now, the fanbase is pretty much split on whether Miles is a coach that can consistently keep LSU in the NC mix. Even though in a relatively short tenure, he's won one and played in another, many of our fans don't see him as that elite level coach. I think if he wins this game, it marks the b...
| Tiger Rant|| Here's to Coach Les Miles......... - TigerTreyjpg on 10/6/12 at 11:14 am|
Coach, prior to your damn strong football team taking the field against a pretty good Florida team today, I just thought it would be appropriate for me to thank you for continuing to make Saturdays in the fall have meaning. While I recognize that before your arrival to Baton Rouge, you were left wi...
| SEC Rant|| 5 weeks in, and we still know nothing. - TigerTreyjpg on 10/1/12 at 11:41 am|
I take that back - we know that Arkansas is horrible. Otherwise:
1. Bama has some sexy wins, until those ladies take their make-up off. While wins against Ole Miss, Arkansas, and Michigan sound generally impressive, there's not alot to see there.
2. "Who" Florida beat in College Station ...
| Tiger Rant|| Should Les have pulled all the starters as motivation? - TigerTreyjpg on 10/1/12 at 8:41 am|
Given that the starting 11 players were clearly unmotivated and unfocused while playing Townson (especially on offense), do you think Les should have blown a gasket, and taken all 11 starters out and put in the second team really early in the game just to send a message or whatever? I've heard of c...
| Tiger Rant|| Does it feel like football season hasn't started yet? - TigerTreyjpg on 9/28/12 at 1:20 pm|
Don't get me wrong, trouncing Washington was fun, and beating Auburn - especially over there - has proved to be a difficult task, but it almost seems like the season doesn't start until the Florida game.
Anyone else feel that way?...
| Tiger Rant|| Let's discuss the drops, and how to cure them. - TigerTreyjpg on 9/23/12 at 3:34 pm|
First of all, I did not see this problem coming. OBJ didn't seem to have this problem last year, IIRC. And for whatever reason, he's either infected the other receivers w/the dropsies, or caught the disaese from one of the others, as its not just him. They are all doing it.
I've seen this prob...
| O-T Lounge|| When you were a kid, did your neighborhood have a "whore" mom? - TigerTreyjpg on 9/18/12 at 2:21 pm|
Was talking to a guy at lunch, and we pretty much agreed that all neighborhoods had this one woman who either reputedly put out to the young guys (like 15ish - 18ish) on the block, or for sure put out for them.
My neighborhood had a lady like that. Unforuntately, I was just a little young to par...
| SEC Rant|| Why does everyone like Derrick Dooley? - TigerTreyjpg on 9/11/12 at 9:30 am|
I'm guilty as well. I live in North Louisiana, so I followed him while he was at La Tech. Obviously, me being an old timer, I followed his dad. I liked that guy too, for whatever reason (seriously, on his dad, it may be because he has one of the best southern accents of all time). But, I digress...

For folks around my age (46), there was a band in New Orleans called the Cold. I used to love going to their shows, mainly at Jimmy's on Willow Street, or as a younger guy, the CYO's around town would have them. A time or two, they were on the Riverboat President.
Anyone on the music board an o...

Seeing how it's finally game week, and that we are, within a few weeks, about to find out just how good LSU really is, I'd like to hear an honest discussion, or your opinions, of our "intangibles".
We've broken down "the known" about as many ways as possible. We think our lines on both sides of ...
| Tiger Rant|| If a national poll was taken, and excluded LSU/Bama fans...... - TigerTreyjpg on 8/21/12 at 4:33 pm|
as to what team was less deserving of an NC:
(2011) Bama by getting a "re-do" game, or
(2007) LSU by getting in with two losses,
Who do y'all think the nation's fans, excluding Bama/LSU fans of course, would say was less deserving of their respective national championship?
I have no clue...

Even in college, I never enjoyed this much - quarters, funneling, doing crazy shots.....never liked it much.

| Tiger Rant|| Are you for or against "showing your cards" early? - TigerTreyjpg on 7/16/12 at 11:21 am|
I think our running game will look really similar to last years, minus options - why fix what's not broke?
What does Coach Miles do in the passing game though. If you're CLM, do you air it out in the first three games (assuming the Washington game isn't close), and make teams game plan for that/...

For whatever reason, I'm under the impression that vet's just typically don't do this, but I'm not sure why I think that.
