| Tiger Rant|| Kevin Carter Compliments LSU - PurpleAndGold86 on 8/20/14 at 9:48 pm|
Since there is a thread every single time someone n the media says LSU won't win the national title I thought I would start one for someone saying something positive.
On the big 10 preview show the host just asked Kevin Carter if Wisconsin beats LSU could they possibly go undefeated.

| Tiger Rant|| 2 LSU Basketball Players in ESPN top 30 for 2015 NBA Draft - PurpleAndGold86 on 7/16/14 at 12:07 pm|
21. Jordan Mickey
Before Mickey stole their affection, scouts started the season very excited about Jarrell Martin, another LSU freshman. Mickey's long, he's an explosive finisher around the basket (he shot 77 percent at the rim), and he's a terrific shot blocker. He also showed off an effective ...

Going to Chicago this weekend with my wife and was wondering if the food board had any good ideas on great places to eat. We currently have Shanghai Terrace and Gibson's as our two dinners in the city. Open to any suggestions and price doesn't matter. Thanks....

I just saw that Better Than Ezra will be playing at the House of Blues in Houston the Friday night before the LSU game. The House of Blues is located in downtown.

The Orioles are apparently the leading candidate at the moment. I would love to see the Cubs resign Samardzija, but I wouldn't mind seeing Kevin Gausman in a Cubs uniform either.
[quote]The Orioles have premium young pitching that the Cubs will insist on if they are going to move their ace. Right...
| Tiger Rant|| PSA Regarding Baseball Tickets for this Weekend - PurpleAndGold86 on 4/29/14 at 10:55 am|
A&M releases a certain amount of general admission tickets on the day of each game. They are released 4 hours prior to game time and are only available for sale at the stadium. Just a heads up because I know there are very few tickets being sold through the A&M secondary market and they are expensiv...

Got to have dinner with Skip in the Champions Club, sit behind him 6 rows behind home plate, and then hung out in the suite he was in for a couple innings. He is such a class act. Signed autographs for every kid that asked him and offered to take a pic with me and my wife. What a classy guy and grea...

| Tiger Rant|| Question Related to LSU ULL Baseball Game - PurpleAndGold86 on 2/26/14 at 7:14 am|
Can someone explain to me why everyone is saying the score was 4-1? Looking at the box score it looks like ULL scored in the top of the sixth which is when the game was called off. The game should revert back to the last completed inning and should have been 3-1. Obviously, it doesn't matter, we los...
