| Tiger Rant|| I Feel Bad, So Let Me Complain - Eternally Undefeated on 1/9/15 at 9:08 am|
The high number of experts who post on this board is very impressive. We have folks who know how to coach and play every sport, especially football, basketball and baseball, but - due to their pursuit of more impressive careers in other fields - could not lower themselves to be "mere" coaches. We ...
| Tiger Rant|| Fans Who Feel Entitled - Eternally Undefeated on 10/6/14 at 11:25 am|
We have individuals on this board whose scathing posts and comments cause me to wonder if they feel that the coaches and players on this team are required to win football games for them. They seem to take it as a personal affront when we lose. That I may support the Tigers by buying football ticket...
| More Sports Board|| Lebron and Carmelo - Eternally Undefeated on 7/4/14 at 9:13 am|
Is anything more important to the sports media right now than an answer to the burning question, "Where do Lebron James and Carmelo Anthony end up playing next year?" Mike and Mike on ESPN just signed off with re-assuring news that we "may know" by Monday. A radio sports host interrupted his enjoya...
| Tiger Rant|| Expressing Every Little Worry - Eternally Undefeated on 1/15/14 at 9:24 am|
It's easy to reach the conclusion that today's fans are bigger crybabies than those of two or three decades before. However, in the time before the Internet and access to bulletin boards, us "worriers" basically had to "suffer" alone. Conversely, in the modern world, any body who feels a twinge of ...
| Music Board|| What voices ruin the music? - Eternally Undefeated on 9/20/13 at 9:55 am|
I was trying to be succinct in the title, but what I'm wondering is whether there are bands or artists whose music you like or might like more if it weren't for how much you dislike the voice of the lead singer?
Here are a few of mine:
Smashing Pumpkins - I might like them if Billy Corgan allo...
| Music Board|| Kaiser Chiefs Live - Eternally Undefeated on 10/9/12 at 10:41 pm|
I found this to be a quite entertaining festival concert. I recommend listening with earphones or headphones. Tight band, catchy music, good vocals, and clever lyrics.
Skip to the 47 minute mark to listen to the last 10 minutes or so of the show. If you don't like that, you may not want to wat...
| Tiger Rant|| Pride Involves More than Winning - Eternally Undefeated on 10/3/11 at 9:08 am|
I am a die hard LSU Tiger fan - in all sports. I hate to see them play poorly, much less hate to see them lose. I have pride in the LSU Tigers!
But, it hurts my pride more to see some of the "fans" boo at our players, team, and even coaches, than it does to see us lose. I am ashamed of those in...
| Tiger Rant|| The "Overrated" Cheer - Eternally Undefeated on 9/6/11 at 4:41 pm|
The most annoying cheer that any crowd can yell when winning a sporting even is "Overrated". Apparently, a bunch of LSU devotees felt that this was appropriate during the latter stages of the Oregon game. Look, if we are trying to make ourselves look super, then isn't it better to acclaim the oppo...
| Tiger Rant|| The Warriors of the State - Eternally Undefeated on 9/28/10 at 11:41 am|
I remember reading an article several years ago about a college which was in the throes of the nation's longest losing streak. It did not appear that the team would win any games during the season of the article. I paraphrase what the president of that college said in the article: "It hurts to lo...
| Tiger Rant|| Vicarious Glory and Self-Inflicted Shame - Eternally Undefeated on 9/22/09 at 1:52 pm|
It is likely that all LSU fans are thrilled when the Tigers win. Perhaps, we make it a much bigger deal than it often is, supposing - for example - that the whole nation if not universe needs to know about the win and praise us. (That is why many get upset because they perceive that sports network...
| Tiger Rant|| My Main Concern with Idiots - Eternally Undefeated on 8/31/08 at 1:41 pm|
My main concern with idiots (aka ranters) is that they use this board to identify by name players who have let them down. Idiots, do you think that the players or their friends or their families never access this board from time to time? How would you like to see your name headlining one of these...
| Tiger Rant|| Debut - Eternally Undefeated on 8/19/08 at 9:40 pm|
For those who are always commenting about one's numbers of posts, this is my first one. I'm a long time listener but first time caller, as they say.
My pen name is in tribute to those of our fan base who appear to expect no less than that every LSU athletic team go undefeated until the end of th...
