were you near the aisle (closer to 333)? I saw a group of saints fans there since I was in row 21 right above.
Was a fun game, even if frustrating at times. Loved the who dat chant after the touchdowns.
had a good size turnout of saints fans though, saw them all over....

Will they even show the game? Red Sox play tomorrow night. It's gonna be getting packed around that area early. Are there any other saints bars not around Fenway?...

I will be in Boston, but not for the game, just to visit some friends for a 3 day weekend.
Can you recommend any good Saints bars to watch the game at?...

someone I know has it. He had a double lung transplant. There have been major strides of course, but depending on how severe it is, there will be a lot of really tough times, so be prepared for that. Also, males with it will almost certainly be infertile, but not sterile. I think a tube connecting s...

Already had this talk with my girlfriend. I'm getting her a sapphire ring that's not too gaudy since she hates that. I'm then taking the difference on the price of that and what a nice diamond ring would cost and I'm investing it towards a down payment on our first house.
It really is the bigges...

haha, obviously not a fan of the LSU logos but it definitely looks like they got the generic sports logo look down. Good for them I guess. That site design is horrible though.
I will say this about bad logos though, a lot of people say they can do better and they are probably right. The fact is t...

indeed. This is a great article on the subject, that is, logo bashing. There's a whole section on sports logos too, since it's so common.

If I remember correctly, it came from a time when baseball was more of a gentlemen's sport, so to speak. It wasn't considered good enough that the batter swung at a terrible pitch to gain the out. You had to earn it by making a good play, by catching it cleanly. If not, ...

No it's not. It's because the students they have year to year change and come in with different abilities. There is no one size fits all lesson plan. You have to do it custom for each new class every year. It's more work but it's more effective....

I've learned that private schools pay shite for teachers, Louisiana pays shite in comparison to other places, and a lot of teachers work A LOT of hours.
