Lawrence County, MS
Box Mansion overlooking food plot
Saw one average size doe at 8:30.
My son and I are passing, hoping for a buck to check her out.
There is no debate on rain movement for us over here. Saw six deer yesterday moving in the rain and in between showers.

I've waited a few days to express my thoughts, and I might be repeating what others have said in the thread, but here's what I have to say.
First, I enjoyed the added material linking the Hobbit to LOTR. I know it's not canon stuff, but it works for me. I'm cool with "more" Middle Earth.

I don't want a black guy cast as James Bond either.
That's not to say that a black man CAN'T be James Bond. It's my personal preference. When I think of James Bond, I think of a tall, suave white Englishman.
I think casting a black man as Bond would be as out of place as casting a short, f...

If these players want him back, then that's probably a sign he should go.
A poor-performing defense should be uncomfortable with the status quo.
| Fantasy Sports Board|| In Praise of Smaller Leagues - SpqrTiger on 12/23/14 at 4:16 pm|
What are your thoughts about smaller leagues?
I run an 8 team league, and a lot of people say, well, that's not enough competition, but after being in both big and small leagues, I think smaller leagues are the way to go.
Main reasons why I believe this:
1. Sure, all the teams are loaded, ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| re: Anyone win their league when they shouldn't have? - SpqrTiger on 12/23/14 at 4:00 pm|
I didn't have them. My opponent did. We did an auction league and not everyone was sold on Murray and Bell (Bell in particular), so my opponent just outbid everyone for them.
We also don't have a big league. We keep it small on purpose.

Danica McKellar wouldn't be a bad choice. Math whiz with a theorem named after her.

Percy Harvin for me.
| Fantasy Sports Board|| re: True or False: OBJ was the most important pickup in Fantasy Football History - SpqrTiger on 12/23/14 at 2:34 pm|
I picked him up just for kicks right before his first start. Without him, there's no way I win the title.
| Fantasy Sports Board|| re: Anyone win their league when they shouldn't have? - SpqrTiger on 12/23/14 at 2:32 pm|
I had the best record in my league and the #1 seed, but my championship opponent was scoring an obscene amount of points in the second half of the season, led by Demarco Murray and Leveon Bell.
Championship week that team scored less than 100 points. I was projected to lose by about 20. Everyth...

| Movie/TV Board|| re: Thrones fight to the death. Khal Drogo vs The Mountain(no armor or weapons) - SpqrTiger on 12/18/14 at 4:15 pm|
The bottom line is that this is a fight to the death, and you can't kill a man with your bare hands without being within reach of HIS hands.
For this reason, the Mountain wins. There MUST be grappling to win this fight.
Drogo is an amazing warrior, but the Mountain is superhuman in size and s...

I can't believe an incident so innocuous and non-substantive actually a) offended her and b) was the basis of a column and c) an actual editor read it and approved it.
Honestly, I'm skeptical the incident happened as she described it, and I would even go so far as to say it probably didn't even h...

| Outdoor Board|| So Who Do You Think is Right? - Deer Population Question - SpqrTiger on 12/17/14 at 8:27 am|
Here's the background. We have a small piece of property in Mississippi near Brookhaven (50 acres). It's too small to hold a deer herd. We mostly see what passes through from around the area.
Last year, we saw hardly any deer at all. A few does here and there and a buck or two, but only ever ...

King of Queens Season 2.
Not only did it have funny episodes, but it had skinny Carrie.
