Why are pol board discussions never this rationale and informative?

| LSU Recruiting Board|| Post-season track times thread - CourseyCorridor on 4/18/13 at 2:46 pm|
I know I started a thread earlier on this, but this week are the district meets in Louisiana, meaning kids have been training to "peak" in these next three weeks.
With newspapers sort of falling apart these days, results have been hard to get. I saw a tweet (can't find it now, off hand, saw it la...

ESPN released the list of the first 45 to accept invitations for the game: [link=(http://espn.go.com/college-sports/football/recruiting/honors)]UA Game Roster, so far[/link]
Louisiana has seven players out of the 45 and there are a bunch of other guys LSU is after too. So far, no LSU commits, but...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| Football prospects in track and field meets - CourseyCorridor on 3/22/13 at 12:12 pm|
We've got a bunch of prospects at the Sugar Bowl meet at Gormley this weekend.
Fournette is in the sprints and the relays.
Noil is in the broad jumps (long and triple) and in the 4x100 (not the same leg as Fournette).
I saw Kevin Spears in one of the jumps.
Dupre is in the high jump.
| Food and Drink Board|| Best BR restaurant stretch - CourseyCorridor on 3/11/13 at 11:26 am|
The Curry N Kabab thread got me thinking. On S. Sherwood, in a stretch between Golden Corral and RaceTrac, you've got:
Bay Leaf Indian, Duong Tawan Thai, Albasha Lebanese, South of Philly cheesesteaks, Hunan Chinese, Ginza sushi, Londoner, Himalayas Nepali, Dream Berrie Vietnamese and Uncle O's c...

At Zachary today in some 7-on-7 tournament. Hope they don't freeze:
Hope this works....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Best RBs in Louisiana history, pre Fournette (more candidates added) - CourseyCorridor on 2/9/13 at 1:33 pm|
Rank 'em, then tell us where you'd put Fournette in relation. Tell us your criteria (straight up high school player, college prospect, etc.).
Let's reserve judgement for Fournette until his body of work is complete. Personally, I think talk of him being No. 1 is premature.
Below is a starting ...

With this kindergarten-teacher-packing-heat nonsense.
C'mon, are you people serious? Does this shite even need to be addressed.

And a perfect fit for Johnny Jones' system.

I'm glad they did

| More Sports Board|| Any chance for Barbe? - CourseyCorridor on 11/25/12 at 3:11 pm|
Seems like Barbe/West Monroe is the best matchup this week, especially if you want to see Blue Chip talent (Quinn, Smith, Robinson).
A few questions:
1. Anybody think Barbe has a legit shot? I can only remember Barbe beating West Monroe once and that was back when Barbe had Slade Nagle, Joe La...
| Food and Drink Board|| Panera Bread Baton Rouge - CourseyCorridor on 10/18/12 at 4:12 pm|
I know BR is supposed to get one (and I'm glad, for the record. Probably my favorite chain), but the negotiations for a lot in Towne Center fell through because the Whole Foods contract, yada,yada (this was back in June or July).
The other half of that was they were supposed to look at lots furth...

I stopped at the CVS at the Bluebonnet/Jefferson Hwy. intersection today and saw the the strip mall behind it (also has CJ's Daquiris) has some sort of Hawaiian Grill going up. It's almost straight behind Izzo's from the Bluebonnet side. ETA: It's "coming soon," not open yet.
Anybody know the bac...
| Food and Drink Board|| Ate at Beausoleil last night - CourseyCorridor on 7/28/12 at 12:43 pm|
First time visiting. The boudin balls, etouffee-topped blackened catfish and the shrimp-and-grits were all excellent. Nothing was bland, nor was it over-seasoned. Perfectly cooked, perfect mix of flavors.
Only quibble is with portion for the price. Not a ton of food. Could have ordered a la carte...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| WR v. DBs One-on-One highlights - CourseyCorridor on 7/7/12 at 12:21 pm|
Interesting people on LSU's radar here like Ricky Seals-Jones, Will (apparently not so) Likely, Artie Burns, Priest Willis, and Goodman along with Brazil.
Seals-Jones doesn't look fast to me. Willis gets beat. Brazil gets beat, but on another play makes a nice PBU.
Sorry if this was posted som...
| Food and Drink Board|| Working on the 4th, where to pick up barbeque - CourseyCorridor on 7/4/12 at 10:32 am|
Unfortunately for us, both my wife and I are working on this 4th of July, so there will be no firing up the grill.
So...anybody wanna suggest where I might pick up some barbeque for lunch today for us (in BR of course, SE BR would be preferred)?
I'm leaning toward Whole Foods right now.

| O-T Lounge|| Power loss in BR - CourseyCorridor on 7/1/12 at 8:15 pm|
Who all has lost power during the heat wave? I did today (you can guess where I live) and I've heard of several others. AC overload, I suppose.
Power's on now and all is well. But it sucked for about 90 minutes.
| Food and Drink Board|| Margarita in Baton Rouge - CourseyCorridor on 6/20/12 at 8:12 pm|
Sitting here, sipping on a margarita from Qdoba. Sad thing is, it's the best frozen (<--- and that's a key word) margarita I've had in BR.
Ninfas is pretty good, but inconsistent. Superior and La Carretta are decent. Most frozen daiquiri places are just awful.
Qdoba, a damn fast food place, be...
| Food and Drink Board|| Best ethnic restaurant, Baton Rouge - CourseyCorridor on 6/15/12 at 12:00 pm|
What are the best ethnic restaurants in Baton Rouge? And by that, I mean partly what restaurant do you enjoy the most AND which restaurant is best at its genre.
Here's an example of what I mean. Generally, I like Viet food more than Indian, but I'd rank Bay Leaf No. 1 because it's a better Indian...
| Food and Drink Board|| NOLA as a coffee town - CourseyCorridor on 6/13/12 at 12:11 pm|
With the Port of New Orleans being the major coffee port in the US (a coffee-centric friend told me something like 80 percent of the world's beans come through that port), New Orleans is probably one of the underrated coffee cities in the US.
Yet, for me, I know just the usual stuff like Cafe Du ...
