Nah, not much unfortunately. Where is L Boogie when you need her? She can probably tell you all about him - his best songs, favorite alcohol, sexual preference, favorite childhood toy when he was growing up, etc... Ha! She is the board's expert on all music coming out of Texas & Oklahoma....

I like Brandon Rhyder, but Ive heard he isnt very good live. Not sure if that is true or not as I always seem to find out about his shows too late whenever he plays near Austin. I'll find out for myself sooner or later. I love his song "Between Here and the Front Door."

considering Floyd hasn't stopped anyone since 2007 (not counting Ortiz fight for obvious reasons), I can't see how anyone would pick Floyd to win this fight by Ko, much less put money on him to do so. Good luck to you though! It will definitely make the fight that much more fun for you to watch.

Finished 23 out of 1955 in a $2 early-game league yesterday. Won $20, haha (Cha-Ching!). I was 8 points away from first place, which paid $500. I was 2.5 points away from cashing in $100.
For that team, I couldn't decide who I wanted to play for catcher, Jason Castro or John Jaso. I went with Ca...

Absolutely. You need a winning pitcher to cash, IMO. If you don't get a win, then you better hope your pitcher put up a great K number and ate up innings. If you choose a pitcher who gets shelled and pulled out early, you have no chanc...
