I agree with these overturns of yours:
The Color Purple over Out of Africa
Saving Private Ryan over Shakespeare In Love
The Pianist over Chicago
I am very good with the original winner for the rest......

Soccer is great youth sport and is popular especially through 6U.
At around 2nd grade, kids seem to gravitate more towards football (flag and Pop Warner), baseball and basketball.
With the concussion concerns, more kids here are choosing lacrosse over Pop Warner - soccer...not so much, maybe i...

Exactly...how do they get the crane up there?
If they use a taller crane, then why not just use the taller crane for the construction?
How do they get the crane down when they are done?
And, how do they finish the area where the crane was once it's removed?

Just an observation as we wind down regarding the 2014 LSU Tiger Football recruiting class --> Only the kicker is under 6', and barely, at that.

Also, are student athletes provided with medical, dental and vision coverage? If so, how generous (lasik, ort...
