| Pelicans Talk|| Nickname for the arena: The Big Smooth? - Chair on 3/6/14 at 7:41 am|
Had the news on last night as I was nodding off to sleep and overheard the Fox guy (Fred Hickman) call it The Big Smooth. He got a few laughs from his fellow news people/staff.
| Food and Drink Board|| Making a burger from ground steak meat - Chair on 2/26/14 at 7:25 am|
How do you do it? I'd like to try it one day.
Could you do it with filet? Would that be too dry? Would you have to incorporate some fat in there?
What about ribeye?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Best place to go get some boiled crawfish in NO/Metairie - Chair on 2/21/14 at 4:43 pm|
Looking to go somewhere and either get a few lbs to take home or just get a tray and eat there.
Where? How are the prices?...
| More Sports Board|| How were the NBA all star games back when teams hated each other? - Chair on 2/16/14 at 10:12 pm|
Commentators were talking about the game tonight and how some teams don't like each other. But back in the 80s and the days of th Pistons and Knicks where those guys really did hate each other, how were the games? ...
| More Sports Board|| Is an Olympian's goal to simply medal? - Chair on 2/11/14 at 7:37 pm|
Obviously we have no Olympians on this board so we will all be speculating. But is the ultimate goal just to medal? Many times, they show a reaction when someone finds out they win bronze, and that person is off the wall happy, like they just win a gold.
Can we say losing in the Super Bowl is th...
| Money Talk|| Pros/cons of buying property with a sibling - Chair on 2/8/14 at 12:41 pm|
I figured this would be a good place to post this to get some more serious answers. Anyone have any experience with this? We are both young and have stable jobs. We have been renting for a while. Neither of us own or have owned any property.
What may be some potential pitfalls to doing this? The...
| Pelicans Talk|| Are we dooming the future as we speak? Setting up for meiocrity longterm? - Chair on 1/30/14 at 2:39 pm|
I just don't see us tanking enough to get a top 5 pick. And we are going to end up missing the playoffs, I think. Even if we do make them, it will be an 8 seed or 7 at best.
How do we recover from that? Are we going to "blow it up" and start getting rid of players and trying to pick up others?
| Food and Drink Board|| Ok so what's everybody drinking? - Chair on 1/27/14 at 5:37 pm|
Can't do hurricanes. What are people thinking for the snow parties?
Some sort of hot beverage?...

| Pelicans Talk|| Pelz, I come here almost unwillingly & hesitant, but I must share a dream I had - Chair on 1/23/14 at 8:39 am|
I don't often get caught up with the "my dream was a nightmare!" nonsense, but this may be the first time in my life that I can say I had a true nightmare......
In my dream, the owners all got to vote on a draft format change for this next draft. It was one of those last minute deals and nobody k...

Recently opened up. How is it?
What's the style of the place? Just regular pizza? Trying to be fancy with out-of-the-norm selections? ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Last play call was awesome, but execution was poor - Chair on 1/15/14 at 7:45 am|
Great, great call. There was about 11 seconds left. You never see a lateral, last ditch play as a second to last play, so you have a big element of surprise. Everyone thinks we are going to do a quick out route. You get the ball all the way on the other side of the field, hopefully where there aren'...
| O-T Lounge|| Should I jsut take the GMAT one time? - Chair on 1/13/14 at 10:55 am|
I have never taken it. Looking at possibly going to get an MBA. Should I take it one time, and see how I do? If need be I can take it again. But will schools see how many times I have taken it?
Should I just study, and try to knock it out the park on one try?...

What are some places that fit one of these in the New Orleans area? I love trying new places and I often have trouble picking what to eat from menus because I want to try a lot of what restaurants have to offer.
I want to start going to some places and just order a little bit of everything. What...

How can A&E enforce their ban on the guy that they don't want on the show? They film the show at his house and at the houses of his family members, right?
Can they tell him he can't be home while they are filming or that he can't be at his family members' houses while they are filming?...

Just a really smart/veteran play. He didn't celebrate or stare down at the receiver. He knocked him out of the play, then jumped right back into it looking to help somewhere else. This is one of those things t...
| O-T Lounge|| How long before people do xmas decoarations/music before Halloween? - Chair on 11/25/13 at 8:11 am|
It's not even Thanksgiving yet, and people have already put out christmas decoarations. There is also christmas music on some radio stations. Can people just not wait until Thanksgiving? I'm not much of a fan of Thanksgiving, and I really like the christmas season, but why not just wait? ...
| Pelicans Talk|| This was very promising, but Monty is still here.... - Chair on 11/16/13 at 9:46 pm|
This may be what Monty and Dell envisioned during the offseason. Team looked great. They dominated a team they should have.
But I'm still bothered by Monty's inability to adjust to life without Ryno.
If he needs this lineup to be successful, what happens when one of our starters gets hurt? ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Boykin, Shorts, and Vereen - what should I do? - Chair on 11/16/13 at 4:48 pm|
Have to fill a WR spot and my flex.
They may not make a decision on Vereen until Monday, but I have to decide tomorrow if I am going to leave the spot open for him.
I'm worried about Shorts going against Peterson, even though the Jags will probably be playing from behind. Boykin has potential...

Stern halts the trade because we need to keep the team (sort of spearheading the "win now" idea)
Benson buys; big dollars coming in
New players coming into New Orleans all around, setting up a "new offense" that is innovative and prepped to make big times moves

I've never been involved in an auction draft. I am in charge of my league and we have always just done the standard snake style draft. I am thinking of maybe tossing out the idea to the people in it too see what they think.
For anyone that does one, what do you think? ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Sooooooooo, Manziel to the Saints to learn from Drew? - Chair on 11/15/13 at 7:33 am|
Drew seems to like his abilities and think he can play at the next level. There are a good amount of QBs in the draft. Maybe teams shy away from taking him so early, and the Saints snag him at the end of the first round??...
| Pelicans Talk|| Does the staff not realize that Ryno is out, like we do? - Chair on 11/13/13 at 8:00 am|
I keep seeing a lot of people chalking the below-average start to really just one thing: Anderson being hurt. So, that's it? We have all these stars on the team, but one great shooter/average all around player is the reason for the poor showing so far?
Does Monty think Anderson is actually in th...
