There is a voting station right across the street from my condo, but it's not in my voting precinct. The line was wrapped around the block a few times.
My voting station was a couple of blocks away at an elementary school. The line was wrapped around the playground... after waiting in line in the...

Gunners have great start, penalty for Blackburn equalizes, then my dreams come true.
I can't help but notice how fluid we look with Ramsey on the bench. I'm not a hater.. I'm just sayin.

| SEC Rant|| Alabama entered the Redzone only once - Wideman on 11/6/11 at 9:10 am|
What a great game...
There's a difference between bad offenses and great defenses. And what we saw last night were two great defenses.
Unless I'm mistaken, Bama only entered the Redzone once. And they couldn't do it even in OT when they started at the 25.
They were forced to kick very long...
| Tiger Rant|| Can someone please post a picture of the Advocate's front page? - Wideman on 11/6/11 at 7:21 am|
I need my fix this morning.
That game was epic. There's a difference between bad offenses and great defenses. And that was a game between great defenses.
I still like Lee to be the starter, but we don't win that game without JJ. What a job he did coming in and sustaining drives just enough......

I wrote this is another thread, but I wanted to start my own to get an actual discussion going because I'm interested in some of your thoughts.
Republicans need to face the facts that the only way they have a shot at replacing Obama with one of their candidates is to rally behind Romney. Quit for...

| Tiger Rant|| LSU Defense - Third Quarter Stats - Wideman on 9/19/11 at 3:38 pm|
I did a little research on LSU's defense in the second half, particularly in the 3rd quarter, after half time adjustments. I'm pretty excited with what I've found. Oh, and if this has already been posted or discussed, my bad.
[b]Let's take a look at 3rd quarter yards:
Oregon - 9
Nw St - 15
| Tiger Rant|| LSU game on ESPN3D - Wideman on 9/16/11 at 6:55 am|
I like casually watching football games on ESPN3D, but I didn't realize how annoying the camera angles and the limited view that these 3D cameras give you during a game.
They're so focused on highlighting the 3D, they forgot that they should be highlighting the freaking game. They cont...
| SEC Rant|| This board had a change of attitude last night, huh? - Wideman on 9/16/11 at 6:34 am|
During the past couple of weeks, LSU fans and Bama fans have been fapping together in threads while everyone was making fun of Moo State's grinding... and Arkansas was just trying to flame in threads.
I get on here this morning, and it appears something that happened last night really pissed off ...
| Tiger Rant|| LSU - Miss. State in 3D - Wideman on 9/14/11 at 8:44 am|
Anybody else watching this game on ESPN3D tomorrow night?
It's the only LSU game live on ESPN3D this year and the first time the Tigers have played on ESPN3D.
I was hoping I could see it for a game in Tiger Stadium so I don't have State's shitty arse stadium surrounding me in my living room.

Does anyone else watch this in the mornings? I've grown to really enjoy this show. I can't stand any other morning 'news' segments so I've been listening to music or putting ESPN on while reading the news.
This show is diverse, giving plenty of view points... it's light-hearted and doesn't get yo...

It seems to be by perusing this board that the (what I deem to be) crazy criticisms of Obama only come out and take a strong root during campaign season...
During the past two years, there has been real, legitimate criticism of the president and his policies. But since it appears we're gradually...

I'll be there, probably dressed up in my Halloween costume. I'm trying to come up with a clever sign... something like, "We may disagree, but I still don't think you're Hitler." (one of the examples given for signs) But I haven't been able to come up w...
| Tiger Rant|| I thought it would be refreshing... - Wideman on 10/8/10 at 6:09 pm|
I thought it would be refreshing if all the JJ vs. JL threads were to miraculously disappear... Especially if I had known they would all disappear after a 5-0 start.
But damn... this place is so close to an explosion, I'm scared to see what would happen to Chickenland if we lose a game....

| Tiger Rant|| Another possible explanation for lackluster performance. - Wideman on 9/7/10 at 9:14 pm|
Few people familiar with college football would disagree that LSU has some of the greatest fans. The loud enthusiasm is unmatched. Even so there are ways the fans can improve. I am told that when Texas A&M loses a game, the fans take much of the responsibility for the loss because they did not ch...

Hey guys, has anyone ever created a decent LSU/Saints wallpaper. I've decided that the Saints get jealous when I put an LSU wallpaper up and vice versa. there is a shitty one on google images, but just wondering if there is a better one out there.

Okay, I'm all riled up.
