MIL recently passed away, so the wife and I are now in the process of selling her house. It's in pretty decent shape overall, but the flooring is completely shot. She didn't have a lot of money, so when she moved in she covered existing linoleum with a peel & stick tile which has since started to ...
| Food and Drink Board|| NYC with kids - OldManRiver on 2/4/14 at 2:12 pm|
Going up for Mardi Gras. Trying to find some places that will offer a nicer/different experience than I get here in BR, yet still be palatable to an 8 and 10 year old that are fairly picky eaters. Googling has led me to lots of places that have kids menus but are very pedestrian, or interesting pl...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Morris or VJax at Flex? - OldManRiver on 12/13/13 at 7:32 pm|
Both guys are trending down the last few weeks. Outside of a huge game against Atlanta, Jackson has 3 or less catches 6 of his last 7. And Morris has barely rushed for 100 yards his last 3.
I'm leaning Morris because with Cousins in, I assume the Redskins will want to establish the run a bit mo...

For those not familiar, they have a Crystal Ball feature where writers and site mods from all over make their predictions on where the top players are going. The scores are aggregated, and you get a percentage. For example, Leonard Fournette is 96% LSU, Tony Brown 98%, etc.

Listening to the Creighton coach on 104.5 radio today, he said there's been some concern about the size of the park in combination with the new bats. There's apparently never been a home run hit to dead center, and only a handful of home runs total hit in the last 2 years. He said that since the n...

10 wins - 3 times

7 wins - 7 times
So 3/15 times a 10 win team goes to Atlanta, and LSU gets the honor twice? Thanks SEC for all the hard work you do....

I have no doubt had Oklahoma been in the BCS, that Texas would have been in the Cotton. And had that happened, no way in hell would A&M and UT played that bowl game, all the power brokers in Texas would have made sure of that. LSU-UT would be a big draw and the Cotton Bowl would have been all over...
| Tiger Rant|| Bad year for the bottom of the league to be so putrid - OldManRiver on 11/25/12 at 12:33 am|
2 winless teams winless in the the league, plus 2 others whose only win is over one of the winless teams. That equals a lot of extra wins for teams that normally wouldn't be there.
That's why 10 wins got Arky a BCS bowl 2 years ago, and this year 10 wins is going to get somebody(probably us) Chi...

It's not really a record, but there wasn't a good way to explain it in the title. For the first time since Tommy Hodson in 1989, an LSU QB has thrown for more than 250 yards in 3 consecutive SEC games.
