[quote]Without the deposit, it's $4166 per month for a two bedroom loft. Yeah, it's cool for the games but that's a lot of coin for a two bedroom especially in Starkville. I can only see corporate money being spend there but does Starkville have that much corporate money to go around[/quote]

[quote]A $20,000 deposit is required for the Left Field Lofts™. The cost of each unit will be $50,000 per year with a minimum commitment of five years plus a monthly service and maintenance fee. Since access to the Lofts will be outside the stadium, Loft patrons will not be required to have a ticket...

I didn't get to see much of the second half, but was anyone else impressed that we didn't play scared? That stood out to me in the first. We went right at them, weren't afraid to push tempo or take shots. We couldn't hit a shot all day and made some dumb turnovers. But I didn't feel like we backed d...

Someone remind me...when was the last time we played worth a crap in one of these early season weekend "tournaments"? We're two weeks into the season. I'm not overly concerned with our pitching just like I'm not reading too much into our success on offense. Every other year we loose our entire rotat...

Some of these places have already been mentioned but to me food is one thing that makes a place memorable. Here are a few places I'd go just for the food.
Apalachicola, FL: Ira's at Gibson Inn
Greenwood, MS: Delta Bistro
New Braunfels (Gruene), TX: ClearSprings Restaurant, Gristmill, Gruene Riv...

I love the folks that think the world stops spinning when it snows. Conversation I had with the wife this morning went about like this:
Wife: where are you going?
Me: uh, work.
Wife: what?! Didn't it snow last night?!

Yep same thing happened to me. Drive from Fay all way to airport, no problems. Get on airport drive and some idiot comes to a complete stop in middle of road while deciding if he's going to make right turn or not. I couldn't stop and slid to the left and came within inches of hitting him. I was piss...

I drove around this morning in NWA. Roads that still had snow on them were easy to navigate. Those that had been plowed were slick cause they were just scraping off the snow, not getting much of the ice. Only issue I had was at exit ramp stoplight. Had to stop on an incline and had trouble getting g...

I could be wrong but weight to length ratio of -3 has been around since the 90's, and they're still using -3. The change was made to BESR and BBCOR to make them less hot. They first made changes in '09, those were about perfect. And then again a few years ago to the dead bats they use now. But there...
| SEC Rant|| re: The new college baseballs - GoldenSombrero on 2/12/15 at 10:50 am|
Not sure why it took them this long to make the change but I'm glad they did. I'm expecting power numbers to get back to the '09-'10 levels. Not gorilla ball, but a happy medium between the two.
The past few years have been frustrating, not because of the low scoring, but because even if you wer...
