About a week old but didn't find it when I searched.

Pretty awesome article using statistics of all players that shows just how great Messi has been since 2010.
| Food and Drink Board|| Review new burger spot on Vets: Atomic Burger - Maderan on 11/26/13 at 2:51 pm|
Just opened and tried it out for lunch. Came away impressed. It seems like a focus on quality.
Burger is good and a thicker style than I have seen for any fast food place.
Fries were some of the best I've had anywhere. Thin cut in house with skin on.
Highlight was the milk shake. They make...

| O-T Lounge|| Cheek kissing as a greeting - Maderan on 4/26/12 at 3:47 pm|
Inspired by the kissing your kids thread.
What about the cheek kiss as a greeting between friends (Male-female or female-female)?
I and almost everyone I know has always done this and it has never felt weird. Pretty sure it is a Louisiana/Southern US thing in America. Common in Europe and Lat...

| Tiger Rant|| Joe Alleva's input to Miles? - Maderan on 8/24/11 at 9:10 am|
I don't know if this has been pointed out but Joe Alleva was AD at DUKE during the false accusation and rush to judgement on the Duke lacrosse player rape case.
Given his experience with a matter like this, and the general public's rush to call for suspensions in this case, I believe he would adv...
| O-T Lounge|| Most successful interview tactic? - Maderan on 6/29/11 at 11:59 am|
What works for you?
I have always gotten a job offer when I get there early and take a crap in their bathroom. Go into the interview relaxed and feeling like I own the place. Maybe it has something to do with marking ones territory.
Currently 4 for 4 with this method....

| LSU Recruiting Board|| Quarterback Riches this year can turn to rags in the future - Maderan on 12/7/10 at 9:39 am|
If we get 3 QB's this year, I think we loose out on any top QB's for the next two years. Creating a thin situation in the future. I know we have a big need to fill now but I am a big supporter of taking one every year and not several. Scares away recruits....
| Movie/TV Board|| Gattaca and Racism - Maderan on 11/24/10 at 7:26 am|
Just re-watched this the other day and for a piece about the evolution of racism it is surprisingly racist.
The premise being that the majority of people have been genetically altered to be ideal and if you haven't then society shuns you. Well there are almost no black people cast in the movie. ...

What time would a team curfew be for last night? My brother in law took pics with Peterson on the street at 11:30 and one of my friends over watching a movie got a call from his brother in law who deals at Harrahs. He had just finished dealing to Sidney Rice and said there were like 6-8 team members...

They are suspended pending the Vikings case, which has been indicated will not be resolved till after the season.
What if they don't make the playoffs and we do? Could a post season resolution for them be a playoff suspension for Grant and Smith?...
| Tiger Rant|| Really like this quote from espn - Maderan on 6/25/09 at 10:58 am|
Ochinko made his coach look smart, too, belting a solo homer in the ninth that sailed out of Rosenblatt Stadium. Ochinko went 4-for-5 with three RBIs.
"He told me before lunch he was putting me in the No. 4 spot," Ochinko said. "I told him I'd been waiting my whole life for this."
Gotta be h...

They drone on and on about how Alabama will be great once they get better players under Nicky but they need to face the facts they the players they have are pretty good and not that far off from LSU's. Look at the rankings since 04' and the picture is pretty clear. Sure we have better players but ...

"Note: Shepard took his campaign a step further and touched on the 2010 class. “Lache Seastrunk from Temple High School in Temple, Texas should be ranked like the number one or number two running back next year and I think he’s ready to commit to LSU right now,” Shepard concluded."
