| Soccer Board|| Panini 2014 FIFA World Cup Sticker Booklet - McVick on 5/23/14 at 8:46 am|
So, this booklet came with a shirt ordered from the USMNT store. After the news yesterday I looked to see if it predicted Landon's omission from the roster. He made in the land of Panini.
Oddly enough, Brad Evans made one of the 17 spots in the sticker book.

I found myself some Terrapin RecreationAle, which is a tasty session beer. In addition to the Terrapin, I have stocked up in TX with the Karbach Mother-in-Lager and Avery Rascal, but am looking for other offerings in BR/Louisiana. The only Tin Roof I like is the blonde. I would buy cans of Restor...
| Food and Drink Board|| New Place Near Kenilworth/Matherne's - McVick on 3/12/14 at 10:16 pm|
After driving Highland the other day, I noticed a new sign for Tigre. After doing a little digging, I found out that this was a restaurant from a while ago (moved here in 2010). Therefore, this turned out to be an old sign that Monjuni's must have covered up when they moved in.
Now, I asked aro...

Yes, I am aware that we are in the Lenten period and most places will have a seafood menu. However, I am looking for a solid seafood place in Baton Rouge to take a couple from out-of-town. Normally I would fight the crowd at Sammy (purely out of convenience and location), but probably looking for ...

Do you think that there are any shipwrecked people on the planet, right now, that are living a similar situation as to Gilligan's Island or Castaway? Living on an island in the middle of an ocean not because of choice but because of circumstances beyond their control.

I think that I am in the minority here, but I prefer the No Woman, No Cry version found on Natty Dread over the more popular Live! version. I have heard that the album version may have accidentally been recorded at a faster speed, while the live version was what was intended. Still, I like the inte...

When I was an undergrad, the ATM on campus dispensed $10's and $20's. Sometimes the $10's slot was fileld with $20's and we would double our money is a very slow fashion.
However, on one occasion the ATM was doubling everyone's money. Withdraw $300, dispense $600. The line of students was over...
