Just finished Ernie Clines new book "Armada", which definietly borrows some influence from this movie. Its been a while since i've seen it so I decided to watch it. Now, I've seen it a thousand times, as it seemed like it played on TBS every weekend growing up. I must confess, I was just as entertai...View Topic - Replies (7)

Reading the Jaws thread, dont know if we've done this one in a while. Jaws is possibly for me the best example of this. I read Peter Benchleys novel, and its terrible compared to the movie. When Spielberg is on, he's a great storyteller. Others: - Legend of Bagger Vance: The book is all about m...View Topic - Replies (12)

I ordered a hat from LSUsports.net during their pretty awesome sale last week for half off. I'm not in any big hurry to get it, so it's not a huge deal that it takes a while to get here. But that's not the point. It shipped on Wednesday of last week with an origin scan of Jacksonville, FL. First...

Just finished Daredevil, very good. Got me thinking. If the Avengers are the Varsity, then you have characters like Daredevil, Coulsons crew, soon to be the other Netfilx heroes, call them the JV. Could Spidey be a character that Marvel could give both big screen and smal screen time to? A lot...View Topic - Replies (9)

I've seen all manner of gloom and doom regarding oil prices in the last two months. Humor me. So for as long as I can remember, I've been hearing every O&G person and politician screaming "Drill baby drill!" "Remove our dependence on foreign oil." A host of other O&G memes. So, as far a I can...

Been meaning to start this thread. This board has recommended some solid movies to me in my time here.

Let's suppose we traded Galette for Willis. Does SanFran assume Galette's cap hit and NOLA assume Willis'? IE: if we cut Galette, we save 10 mil with 3 mil in dead money. If we trade him, do we still get hit with the 3 mil? I know those #s arent right, just trying to get the idea of how this w...

I've heard this phrase perpetuated by both sides of the Isle for as long as I remember. From what I've read, the US is now one of the largest oil producers on the planet and is a threat to opec, so much so that opec is willing to crash the market to try to drive out the competition.
