| Food and Drink Board|| Some questions for restaurant owners on the board? - Patrick O Rly on 3/7/14 at 8:33 am|
It's a dream of mine one day to own either a diner or a small eatery. The one thing I've heard is that you're pretty much living at the restaurant if you're the owner, which doesn't sound appealing to me, as much as I love cooking and seeing people enjoy my food.
My thinking was I could either o...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Are we witnessing a change of philosophy on offense? - Patrick O Rly on 3/6/14 at 7:03 pm|
We're reportedly shopping long term contributors. Do you think we're looking for replacements, or do you feel like there's going to be a slight scheme shift? Maybe more running and less screens? Something else.
I don't really know. I'm not trying to overreact, but it's pretty shocking to hear Tho...

I'm looking for something that's easy to make to drizzle over some tacos.
| Movie/TV Board|| I don't find Ellen Degeneres funny. - Patrick O Rly on 3/6/14 at 9:07 am|
She seems likable enough, but the times I've been exposed to her, I didn't think she was funny. I thought she was pretty awkward on her stint on American Idol. Is that how she usually is? She deadpanned everything. Seemed like a joyless robot spouting off jokes.
I was surprised to see she was ho...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Mike Freeman: it's believed a handful of teams are preparing offers for Graham. - Patrick O Rly on 3/5/14 at 10:48 am|
[quote]"I think the only players more valuable than Jimmy Graham are three or four quarterbacks," said one AFC general manager. "That's it."
It's true love.
Thus, several general mangers say the Saints will have to fight to keep Graham, and the heavy price tag will not be as intimidating to so...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Jimmy tagged as TE. per Rapoport - Patrick O Rly on 3/3/14 at 4:06 pm|
[quote]Jimmy Graham was officially franchise tagged as a tight end. Not a surprise. But sets the stage for a battle.

| Music Board|| Obviously, I'm biased, but what do you think about the Talking Heads? - Patrick O Rly on 2/27/14 at 9:11 pm|
I've been through some phases. I'm 31. I've been through every kind of phase I could have been through. But nothing has hit me as hard as the Talking Heads. ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Teams don't designate position when they tag a player. The league does. - Patrick O Rly on 2/26/14 at 12:38 pm|
[quote]A team serves notice to a player that it "has designated you as a Franchise Player subject to a Right of First Refusal and Draft Choice Compensation" specified in the CBA (Collective Bargaining Agreement). It tenders him a one-year contract for the average of the five largest Prior Year Salar...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Saints interested in resigning Parys Haralson. - Patrick O Rly on 2/25/14 at 8:10 am|
I'm hoping to upgrade our linebacking talent, but he's a solid rotational player and former starter (for the 49'ers). ...
| Music Board|| Billy Idol's "Eyes without a Face." - Patrick O Rly on 2/24/14 at 8:46 am|
I've been hearing this song lately, and it's pretty dang good. The video is ridiculous though with the synchronized arse slapping. :lol:

I think they can act just as good as men can. Sorry for busting your stereotypes, or am I? You're welcome. ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| PFF ranks QB seasons since 2008. Guess what season is #1? - Patrick O Rly on 2/23/14 at 6:45 am|
He actually ranks on their 3 times. It doesn't look like this past years seasons are on the list. Still pretty cool. ...
| Movie/TV Board|| Just got done with Battlestar Galactica *spoilers* - Patrick O Rly on 2/21/14 at 10:15 pm|
Great series, but the ending was so meh. Did they find out they were getting cancelled mid season? It felt rushed.
I thought it was unnecessary and cheesy to show modern day earth. Really weak social commentary. Almost reminded me of a student film.
I also really couldn't stand Laura Roslin ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Salary Cap expected to be raised to 130 million. - Patrick O Rly on 2/20/14 at 8:03 am|
NFL's salary cap now projected to rise to about $130 million, up 5 percent from $123 million last year, per league sources. More $ for all.

That was his only action of the year I believe. They liked him enough to resign him. Just curious. TIA....
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| How would you guys feel about using the non-exclusive tag on Graham? - Patrick O Rly on 2/18/14 at 9:49 am|
Other teams would be able to negotiate with him, and we'd have 7 days to match any offer. If we don't, we'd receive two first round picks (if what I heard is correct).
Graham's camp could choose to negotiate or field offers, and at least at least it would set some sort of market. The risky part ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| SIAP: Draft Simulator. - Patrick O Rly on 2/17/14 at 7:16 am|
I've seen one posted by blues (I think), but I believe it was a different one.
I ran a 3 round simulation this morning while drinking my coffee. My results:
27 pick: Zack Martin OT Notre Dame
58 pick: C Travis Swanson Arkansas
91 pick: DE/OLB Jackson Jeffcoat Texas
| Political Talk|| A question for conservatives. - Patrick O Rly on 2/9/14 at 8:46 pm|
Do you respect the founding fathers?
Do you believe we should follow their intentions?
If so, how do you feel about their belief in not having a standing army? Hence the 2nd amendment?
How do you feel about their not wanting to get into foreign nations affairs? Does it change your opinion...

A lot of things from my childhood hasn't aged well, but Pee Wee Herman's stuff has.
I've been watching episodes of Playhouse with my sons, and we watched Big Adventure last night. I think he's actually funnier to me now than when I was a kid. He's a good physical comedian, but the dialogue is go...
| Food and Drink Board|| What's your preferred way of making tacos? - Patrick O Rly on 1/29/14 at 8:42 pm|
I usually go with raw veggies (red onions, cilantro, tomatoes, green pepper and a little squeeze of lime). Today I sliced up some red cabbage real thin, and fried them up crispy. I just cooked a bit of ground chuck today (although I love tacos with flat iron steak), and corn tortillas, heated up bri...
| Movie/TV Board|| Just started Battle Star Galatica *no spoilers please* - Patrick O Rly on 1/28/14 at 9:19 am|
I was wondering if the series ends abruptly? I ask this because of that episode of Portlandia when they get to the end of the series, and are so upset, that they find some random black guy named Ronald D. Moore to write new episodes.
Ron's wife seems really mean. ...

| Political Talk|| Does it matter what the "Founders intentions" were? - Patrick O Rly on 1/26/14 at 4:21 pm|
Intentions are nice, but they're a worthless commodity when it comes to results. If you're unhappy with the size, scope and power of our current government, they share an enormous amount of blame.
Either they didn't write the Constitution well enough, or maybe old pieces of paper with dead men's...

[b]1. Rampant Ryan Murphy Nip Slips[/b]
This is the name I've given when Ryan Murphy randomly, and without cause, inserts his personal beliefs into the plot/script that make so sense with either the story, character or both. This was present from the beginning, but it's been worse in season 3.
