Show started this morning. Pretty refreshing to hear a national championship quarterback on the radio who actually follows the game....
| Political Talk|| Cleveland will host 2016 Republican National Convention - FairhopeTider on 7/8/14 at 10:53 am|
GOP announcing it now on Fox News. Cleveland beat out Dallas. Ohio is vitally important but I'd rather have seen the RNC be in Dallas. I guess Manziel & LeBron can give the keynote speech for Mitt....
The Democrats will be deciding on their site in the next month. The contenders are Birmingham, P...
| Soccer Board|| Ian Darke - FairhopeTider on 6/28/14 at 5:27 pm|
What a great announcer. Obviously has a great feel for the game. Would love to have him call SEC Football games (Yes, I know that will never happen)...
| Soccer Board|| Question About Start Times - FairhopeTider on 6/26/14 at 6:22 pm|
With only two matches on Tuesday, why are the times so early in the day? Is it basically an attempt to balance viewerships in multiple timezones?...
| Soccer Board|| Anyone with the name Bradley - FairhopeTider on 6/22/14 at 6:56 pm|
Should never be associated with US Soccer again...
| Movie/TV Board|| Just finished watching Lost... - FairhopeTider on 6/9/14 at 3:34 pm|
I used to be hardcore into the show for the first 3 seasons, then fell behind during Season 4 and never caught up. Always promised to finish it one day and back when the Malaysian Flight vanished, I got the itch to finish it. So I watched all 6 seasons over the last 3 months.
| Off-Topic Board|| Bham residents who watched James Spann - FairhopeTider on 4/29/14 at 8:48 am|
I've been a fan of his in the past but what a clownshow that broadcast was last night.
The tornado is hitting Bessemer, heading towards Downtown Birmingham/Hoover, but Spann has nothing but dashcam footage of some random county road in Tuscaloosa County.
To make matters worse, his sidekick Bri...
| Movie/TV Board|| Great moment from The Tonight Show - FairhopeTider on 2/17/14 at 8:27 pm|
In honor of Fallon's first Tonight Show, here is arguably one of the best moments in the show's history. Carson interviewing Sinatra for the first time with Don Rickles joining in.
| Movie/TV Board|| On Her Majesty's Secret Service - FairhopeTider on 2/6/14 at 9:11 am|
With the Winter Olympics starting, its probably a good time to talk about one of the most overlooked Bond movies. There is some bad acting, but I have no doubt that if Connery were in this one, it would've gone down as the best Bond of all time....
| Political Talk|| Carly Fiorina on Bill Maher - FairhopeTider on 1/24/14 at 9:31 pm|
How is she not a more central figure in the GOP? She should have a prime time speaking spot in the next GOP convention....
| Alabama Sports Board|| 2009 SECCG on CBS Sports.... - FairhopeTider on 1/4/14 at 5:26 pm|
We just seemed like a much more mature team than what we had this year with less talent (at least according to the recruiting rankings).
There was also a hunger in our program. Hopefully we can get all of that back.
| Alabama Sports Board|| Another Frustrating Aspect of Our Offense - FairhopeTider on 1/3/14 at 2:15 am|
Is how 2nd and Long seems to put us into a panic mode. We really seem to live and die by first down. We get completely flustered when things get off-schedule. That seem to be the case all year....with a senior QB and an elite WR corps.
Meanwhile OU seemed to thrive on 3rd and Long and down or di...
| Movie/TV Board|| House of Cards - UK Version - FairhopeTider on 12/13/13 at 9:11 pm|
Started this on Netflix. Pretty good stuff. Very British.
Anyone else viewed this version?...
| Movie/TV Board|| Batman Begins on SyFy - FairhopeTider on 12/8/13 at 6:09 pm|
My favorite one of the three. It's certainly a better "Batman" movie than the other two.
Earle should've been in The Dark Knight Rises instead of Daggett.
| Alabama Sports Board|| Maybe this will be the loss that sends a message to Saban... - FairhopeTider on 12/1/13 at 12:09 am|
That we appreciate him, but he isn't perfect. That the fans aren't the problem (yes, we do have crowd issues) and that he should act a little more appreciative of being our coach rather than sending his wife to the WSJ and telling them we aren't good fans.
He's the best coach in football and I am...
| Alabama Sports Board|| Why does it seem with our offense..... - FairhopeTider on 11/30/13 at 11:47 pm|
That with 3rd and 2 or 3, it seemed like a mile. But when AU had 3rd and short, it felt like a foregone conclusion that they would convert?
What a choke job by our offense
| Alabama Sports Board|| Ozello and the Million Dollar Band - FairhopeTider on 11/14/13 at 9:55 pm|
I've seen a lot of people being critical of the band so I thought I'd give it it's own thread. IMO, the MDB is way behind the LSU, UT, and even AU bands.
| Alabama Sports Board|| UA has to move the student section in Coleman - FairhopeTider on 11/14/13 at 9:39 pm|
The students are there, but you can't see them on TV. Can only see empty midcourt seats.
There has to be a way to rearrange things to bring more energy into Coleman. Either make the first come-first serve for the first few home games or even play a few more early season games in Bham....
| SEC Rant|| Saturday marks 45 years since the UA/LSU & AU/UT doubleheader at Legion Field - FairhopeTider on 11/4/13 at 4:51 pm|
I wonder what the atmosphere would be like if it occured today...
| Political Talk|| Why is Condi Rice not a more prominent figure in the GOP? - FairhopeTider on 10/5/13 at 5:26 pm|
Seems to me she has the background/resume that the GOP would love to promote. Her story goes against the entire Obama and liberal message. She has the chops to debate and speak eloquently. She has charisma....something a GOP has been missing for years on the national ticket. She's on the friggin CFB...
| Political Talk|| O'Reilly: "Romney didn't want to be President" - FairhopeTider on 9/27/13 at 1:23 pm|
[quote]So we’re sitting there going, 'Does this guy want to lose?' The answer is yes, he did not want to be president of the United States, and that’s why he lost[/quote]
That explains a lot....
| Movie/TV Board|| Quick Question... - FairhopeTider on 9/17/13 at 9:06 pm|
James Bond (Connery Version) and Don Draper are at a bar and hit on a girl. Which one takes her home?...
| Movie/TV Board|| Delta Force w/ Chuck Norris - FairhopeTider on 9/11/13 at 10:38 am|
Since its 9/11, I started thinking back to what I did that day. I remember watching this movie when it came on some movie channel that night or the day after. Probably the most perfect movie to watch back then. Pure American awesomeness. ...
| SEC Rant|| LSU, why did y'all alter such a great jersey? - FairhopeTider on 8/31/13 at 8:57 pm|
Are the different numbers a one game deal?...
| Movie/TV Board|| Carson on TCM - FairhopeTider on 8/21/13 at 9:48 pm|
Watched a little of the Carson on TCM segment tonight. Felt like its just a tease. Wish they would play the entire shows. You'd have to think they would probably bring in pretty decent ratings.
Still can't believe the way he retired. Most popular man in America who decided to step out while he wa...
| Political Talk|| Three teens kill Oklahoma baseball player "because they were bored" - FairhopeTider on 8/20/13 at 6:52 am|
Sorry if already posted....
While that story should outrage you, so should this: The US media isn't reporting the pictures of the murderers...you have to go the Aust...
| Political Talk|| Meet the Press reaches 21 year low in ratings... - FairhopeTider on 8/14/13 at 7:04 am|
Aside from the fact that David Gregory is a terrible host, what did NBC think would happen when they basically made themselves an extension of the Obama administration? They took NBC News, which once a great brand, and brought it down in the mud. Their biggest mistake was combining MSNBC with NBC Ne...
| Political Talk|| Birmingham City Councilman upset over naming of baseball museum... - FairhopeTider on 7/30/13 at 10:00 pm|
There is a proposal to build a museum in Birmingham that honors former Negro League baseball players. The problem is, there is already a Negro League museum in Kansas City and they aren't too keen on having someone infringe on their trademark. So Birmingham's mayor, who is black, proposed to include...

Great movie or Legendary Movie?...
| Money Talk|| Build/Remodel or Buy? - FairhopeTider on 6/26/13 at 5:27 pm|
We're currently looking to buy in our neighborhood but inventory is really low and it just doesn't seem that anything that fits our criteria is going to come onto the market anytime soon. So instead of settling or moving out of the neighborhood, we're entertaining the idea of buying the house we're ...
