re: What was the worst war to fight in? - Cali-to-Death Valley
My father (an Italian immigrant who had become a U.S. citizen at the 1939 San Francisco World's Fair) proudly fought in WWII (Sicily) and then re-upped for Korea. For years we would ask my father if we could go to Italy to visit relatives and see where our family came from. His response was alwa...

I was assigned to a Local/State/Federal Child Exploitation Unit the last 13 years of my career. I had transferred in from doing the 14 previous years in Gangs/Homicide, I thought I had seen everything. I could not have been more mistaken. Believe me when I say this, there is no limit to the evil tha...

re: Anybody got any cool stories about playing now famous athletes in sports? - Cali-to-Death Valley
Played against former Cowboys TE Doug Cosby 4 times in HS when he was at Saint Francis. He was probably the second best TE in our league. The best was a guy named Rick DeMartini who was a man amongst boys-every, school on the west coast wanted him. Unfortunately he got in a boating accident that man...

re: Spin-off thread - Longest work commute - Cali-to-Death Valley
The last 26 years of my career I had a 180 mile round-trip commute (Wanted to raise our family in a place with low crime-good schools-affordable). To avoid sitting in Bay Area traffic for hours I'd start my day at 3AM and end it at 10PM when I went to bed, plus I was on call 24/7, 3 weeks out of...

Outside of a handgun (and 85% of women should be given some type of firearm retention training with it) Bear Mace is by far the way to go.

Been wanting to smoke some bacon and Andouille but we've had a month of "spare the air day(s)" so I couldn't. Today is OK but it's starting to rain (just a bit) which is OK by me since we're in the worst drought in the last 100 year. Which brings me to a question. I had to freeze the sausage (mad...

re: Never seen Leonard Fournette highlights? This thread is for you. - Cali-to-Death Valley
While watching the All Star game they said over and over again that LF was the best back and number-1 recruit in the country (Can't deny that), but twice they mentioned (rewouned the Tevo x many to make sure)that if LF chose to play linebacker (they never said inside or outside) he would be one of t...

Frank Family is great choice. Also, if you have the time (and don't mind spending the $$$ for the tour, Castello di Amorosa in Calistoga has great wine and is just beautiful.

re: Our bowl projection according to Espn. - Cali-to-Death Valley
Actually Baylor is not a bad fit for the LSU defense. Look at the LSU defense since the Chief got here. The "D" excells against the "spread O". Oregon, West Virginia, and A&M twice. The Defense was (maybe is) supposed to be down this year, yet their best game was against one of the most prolific...

re: Someone 'Splain to Me What I Just Saw (our D) - Cali-to-Death Valley
A little of everything written here but also this; the Chief is as good as it gets when it comes to dialing up schemes to match "spread" or "read-option" teams. Oregon in '11, A&M the past 2 years....He seems to have the defense play much more agressive and keeps the predal to the metal the entire g...

re: Don't fret, LSU fans...this run by Alabama will end soon... - Cali-to-Death Valley
1-LSU does need to keep the best prospects in Louisiana at LSU and not lose them to alabama (or a&m or anyone else). Success like that alabama is experiencing right now allows them to also pick up top recruits from around the country. Once LSU gets back in the driver's seat they need to expand the r...

I'm certain that alums make up the vast majority of "True-Hardcore" fans and carry a love for LSU that can't be duplicated if you did not attend. Here comes the "but".
