| Tiger Rant|| If Jason Vargas hadn't transferred Smoke would have WON a CWS. - Honest Tune on 10/2/14 at 9:22 pm|
There was a bunch of talent on those teams the next two years. Vargas, hitting and pitching, would have been the best. And a first rounder after his jr year.
LSU should also count him on their MLB tally. I think. He's had a good career....
| Movie/TV Board|| Zero Dark Thirty...how will this film be remembered? - Honest Tune on 10/2/14 at 7:55 pm|
I like the movie for entertainment value, thought it was very well put together.
However, I believe this film will be proven in the long run to be nothing more than Hollywood fluffery for the Obama administration.
Any opinions on this?
*I thought the movie was perfectly cast as well. Jessi...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Ingram ' s last score made me proud for him. - Honest Tune on 9/9/14 at 9:27 pm|
I know the guy has been criticized many times for not being a back that would lower a shoulder and blast a fool on his way to paydirt, but he did that very thing to put us ahead and half the nail in their coffin.
He runs like he wants to prove something :pimp:...
| Movie/TV Board|| Something I never noticed until recently about Hook... - Honest Tune on 8/23/14 at 7:28 am|
Watched this in the theatres when I was 9. Now my 2 year old daughter is really into the movie.
Anyway, when they hop the plane to England, and they're having turbulence, the captain comes on to the loud speaker to address the passengers...I'm pretty damn certain the captain of the plane is non...
| Movie/TV Board|| Swiss Family Robinson should be remade - Honest Tune on 8/2/14 at 7:22 pm|
One of my favorite adventure/family films to watch as a kid.
Needs to be a little bit "edgier" than the original Disney version, but a pg-13 rating would do I believe.
Christoph Waltz could play Papa Robinson.
Pirates, islands, exotic animals.
Make it happen, Hollywood....
| Tiger Rant|| Has Dinardo been back in Tiger Stadium since he was canned? - Honest Tune on 6/19/14 at 7:47 pm|
Next year being the 20 year anniversary of the Bring Back the Magic campaign ( :bow:), perhaps it might be fitting to honor Gerry and the legendary signing class that helped put LSU football back on the national stage...
I know I would love to see that :geauxtigers:
He burned out pretty hard ...
| O-T Lounge|| why is the southbound causeway bridge a lot more bumpy than the northbound side? - Honest Tune on 6/12/14 at 9:57 pm|
It's noticeably different in a bad way. Especially so pulling a trailer, that's when you can really tell a difference.
Anyone else notice this?
I'm guessing they were in a hurry to finish it and messed up....
| Movie/TV Board|| Question about Something About Mary- what happened to her real dad? - Honest Tune on 6/11/14 at 10:38 am|
Did it ever address in the movie what came of Mary's real father? Did she have daddy issues? She always seemed to be fairly attracted to losers, and didn't want Farvra, who by all accounts was a keeper. Maybe the daddy issues were in reverse, meaning creepers could sense a void that needed filling,...
| Outdoor Board|| Wilderness Systems Tarpon 140 - Honest Tune on 6/3/14 at 7:21 pm|
I'm about to pull the trigger on this :yack: from Massey's here in Nola.
Any opinions from the OB on this boat?
| Political Talk|| Why does Mass Media aim to distract? - Honest Tune on 6/1/14 at 12:40 pm|
My one and only mass comm class at LSU was taught by Prof. Jules d'Hemecourt -RIP, seemed like a helluva guy, excellent communicator.
He discussed some topics which I can more appreciate some years later. I regret not giving it my full attention (poon tang, drinking and football) but I do recall ...
| More Sports Board|| The Bo Jackson 30 for 30 had me considering his NFL career choice... - Honest Tune on 2/9/14 at 10:19 am|
Bo was in KC with the Royals well on his way to great feats in baseball (all-star, potential HR titles, gold glove, maaaaybe HOF, etc.), yet he still had the want and talent to be a similar type star in football.
My question is this/these: if Bo knew he still wanted to play two sports, why didn'...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| I'm looking for a specific highlight of Leonard Fournette. Need help. - Honest Tune on 1/19/14 at 9:33 am|
Trying to show a relative of mine a highlight I saw on a local (nola) high school football recap show. I think it was from Fournette's junior year.
The camera man was set up in the end zone and LF was running straight towards him. Some undersized db tried to stop him at the goal line but LF put...
| Outdoor Board|| Are there any good knife throwers on the OB? Need some tips. - Honest Tune on 1/14/14 at 9:24 am|
Got an academy gift card for Christmas. I've been keen on taking up knife throwing as a pastime, so I spent some of the card on some SOG Throwing knives and some SOG flings as well.
I'm going to cut myself a big stump log to throw at in my pasture. Aside from a safety first mentality, what are s...
| Tiger Rant|| Mr. Fournette, it's alllll yours, sir. - Honest Tune on 1/13/14 at 10:16 am|
Time to "show'em what your made of"!
My guess.... 900 yrds on the ground, 300 receiving, 8 tot td's, special teams beast just like Juice Landry was. Can't wait to see this kid play.
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Is Trey Quinn going to be drafted in the spring MLB draft? - Honest Tune on 1/6/14 at 11:35 am|
I know he was/is a highly regarded baseball prospect as well. Hopefully he can find some time to go track down would-be doubles for CPM's Tigers. :geauxtigers:...
| Music Board|| Is Queen's "We Will Rock You" the most recognizable song Worldwide? - Honest Tune on 1/2/14 at 8:43 am|
Feel like I could walk into a bar/club/garhole in all corners of the globe and the folks in there could be banging there head to the opening foot stomp/clap.
What say the music board?...

| Political Talk|| Will there ever be another non-Ivy league president? - Honest Tune on 10/16/13 at 2:27 pm|
Seems to me the chair is reserved for the elite.
Strange that "smart" people can FUBAR a job so badly.
| Tiger Rant|| Hawthorne's call on Keehne's 28 yard punt was a gem - Honest Tune on 9/1/13 at 2:02 pm|
"That is his worst of the year!"
Way to go out on a limb, Jim.
| Tiger Rant|| Jordan Allen brought much needed Intensity last night - Honest Tune on 9/1/13 at 1:01 pm|
This West Monroe Tiger was fired up and played like someone who's been waiting on his number to finally be called. Seemed like he dominated in the first half.
Can't have too many hell raisers on the D-line.
