| More Sports Board|| re: What's up with the Pels-Rockets rivalry on this board? - Opus on 11/25/14 at 10:09 pm|
Its fun to mess with the Rockets fans on Pelicans Talk because they can't help but interject themselves into the forum dedicated to a team that is not theirs. But in general there is no true Pelican/Rocket rivalry because the Rockets have never done anything of consequence to the Pelicans, and vice...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: I really miss our Hornets colors / brand - Opus on 11/14/14 at 6:52 am|
I do miss Hugo. He was awesome. But in this case we had to throw the baby out with the bathwater so that we could come out ahead with a much more fitting rebrand. I think everything worked out perfect for both franchises. ...

[quote]Whats your preference among those or how do you see it ending?[/quote]
My preference would be finding a cure to stop the living from turning into walkers automatically upon death. But nothing that de-animates a walker (or worse yet turns them human).
How do I see it ending? After being...

| Money Talk|| re: Why is talking about salary a taboo? - Opus on 10/12/14 at 9:24 am|
Two reasons. 1) People are not mature enough to discuss salary without negative feelings creeping in and straining the relationship. 2) Employers will not allow giving up leverage in salary/raise negotiations.
If you can talk about it like a grown up and keep what you know from your employer ...

Maybe now you can figure out why the rest of the sports world finds Cards fans so insufferable. And I'm not even an MLB fan. Try not being a douche and see how people treat you....

First time I went I was underwhelmed. But I wanted to like it so I went back a few weeks later. Still underwhelming. Too many good places to eat to give a third chance at being bored with a meal. ...

What does a study like this do to/for the opposition to drilling in St. Tammany? Is it a comparable situation to the fears of those residents or is it an apple/oranges type situation?
I don't know enough about fracking to have an informed opinion and the only concern I know the St. Tammany res...

I think they punt on choosing another defensive player and go with Jimmy Johnson this year. Cower would be a shoe in but I think people expect him to come back at some point and the voting committee doesn't like things like t...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: PFF roundtable on the NFC South. - Opus on 9/4/14 at 9:29 am|
Top 5 defense last year. Yeah that should "finally be good enough to help [the Saints] out the way it did in 2009".
Tandem 12 sack edge pass rushers and coupled with legitimate break out candidates at DT. But not one of the "two teams with top-notch front-7 potential".
Not that it matters. ...

End of '07 regular season.
