It's hard to believe an LSU team only has 2, maybe 3 guys at most that have a prayer of driving a ball with power. I know the bats suck, but we just seem to have a lot of weak outs....

There is absolutely nothing wrong with her playing T-Ball, dance, gym, soccer, or whatever else you/she wants to do. More power to you.

It apparently wasn't better than Delahoussaye's. Doesn't mean Hairston is a bad kicker, just that he's not as good as the other guy. And since Delahoussaye only missed 1 kick all year, and that was when he was hurt, I'd say they made the right call....

I replaced all the carpet in my house with wood flooring several years ago, so it's not a daunting task for me to do it myself. A buddy has a tile saw for the kitchen and bathroom areas, so in theory I would just need to pay for materials and carve out some time to do so.

MIL recently passed away, so the wife and I are now in the process of selling her house. It's in pretty decent shape overall, but the flooring is completely shot.
