To think he lead The Masters after 3 rounds as an amateur then shot an 80 on Sunday and lost by a shot is amazing.
Always seemed a class act and will not be forgotten.
RIP Ken Venturi...

The Billy Sol Estes story was huge back in the day. I did not know he died.
LBJ was notorious for his back room dealing and it's entirely possible he had people killed for his own benefit.
Anyone interested in this should read a book that came out back in the '60s entitled A Texan Looks at Lyndon....

As I recall, Mike Anderson had the size to play pro ball but came out of college with a bum knee.
George Bevan was just a freak of nature. He was really too small to play but was damn good at just knocking the snot out of people in college.
One other thing that is overlooked is that playing pro ba...

These type of carriers operate on an add-on basis. When Vision Airlines was flying out of Baton Rouge a few years back I looked into flying to Ft Walton just for the heck of it. Their advertised price was $39 one way. After all the fees it was just at $100 one way...so a $160 trip for two was really...

I can't agree that NO is an anti-LSU place - actually when the Times Picayune was 7 days a week, it's LSU coverage was as good as The Advocate's.
I don't buy the Benson hates LSU but if true maybe it's because he felt threatened when the Saints played the Dolphins after Katrina in Tiger Stadium.
