re: So per 247, Drake Davis opts for soccer over football - calitiger
I love soccer but unless he's signing with an academy in Europe this decision doesn't make much sense financially. Of course, we'll see what happens when MLS and the players renegotiate their CBA next year. ...

re: Curious about Wisconsin fans - calitiger
Personally, I love the people of Wisconsin and the state itself. Been there many times and have always been treated well. As a matter of fact they remind me a lot of Louisianans in that they enjoy hunting and fishing, eating and drinking, and talking football. I can't wait to make a return trip when...

re: So Charter has the Longhorn network but no plans for the SEC Network. - calitiger
Unlike Direct TV reps who will comment. I spoke to one the other day and he said that they were originally considering adding the PAC-12 Network to their sports package. However, inquiries related to the SEC Network outnumbered those for the PAC-12 by a ratio of 9-1. Based on those figures Direct T...

re: Yedlin to Liverpool rumor - calitiger
He can't go to Liverpool. The bin dippers would steal everything he owns. Seriously, Genoa would be a good place for him. He needs to get some quality international club experience. ...

re: Fulham boss: "Mediocre Landon Donovan" - calitiger
He washed out at Bayer (the aspirin company, not Bayern, the region of Germany) Leverkusen. I wouldn't say he's mediocre. The fact that he was satisfied playing in MLS and not proving himself in the world's top leagues is a reflection of his character. I'm sure Klinsmann views it the same way....

re: Group A Match 1 | Brasil v Croatia | Official Match Thread - calitiger
Perisic can play striker if needed. He had a great year with Wolfsburg. We'll miss Mario but we have options. The real question mark for us is the back four with the notable exception of Lovren. Ajmo Hrvatska! Za dom spremni!...

re: Heading to Omaha - what are some things to do - calitiger
My favorite steakhouse in Omaha is Johnny's. Old school feel with good cocktails and excellent steaks. It's open late so it's convenient if you attend an evening game. The prices are reasonable as well and for atmosphere it's close to old stockyards. As for other recommendations, I concur with Cath...

re: We need LSU back in Omaha - calitiger
I visited your fine establishment for the 2009 CWS and had a wonderful time. Every LSU fan should make it a priority to go there at least once. You definitely know how to roll out the welcome maf. :geauxtigers:...

re: Who Lives Near A Civil War Battlefield? - calitiger
[quote]I grew up in Hampton VA (est 1610). The Monitor-Merrimack battle was basically right in front between Hampton and Norfolk. I used to go to aft Monroe all of the time and that was where Jefferson Davis was held prisoner after the war. [/quote] I live three blocks from where the Monitor was ...

re: Was anybody here at the 1981 LSU vs Tulane game in the Dome? - calitiger
I was there but I don't recall the incident. That was a rough night. Roch Hontas and the Greenies were unstoppable and we had a few key turnovers that gave them easy scores. I believe that Tulane lost to Penn State in the Liberty Bowl that year....

re: who thinks alabama really gave a good shi### about that game ? - calitiger
Yeah I think that when Bama scored the opening touchdown so easily they expected OU to quit like so many other teams would have. OU refused to be intimidated and played with aggression and without fear. The screen passes and misdirection plays confused Bama's defense all night, and OU's defense was ...
