I'm a big Mett fan, and I think he has huge upside in the NFL.
However, the attitude he took towards reporters at LSU (and it was a pretty smug attitude) better not carry over to his pro career. Part of his job will be to conduct interviews, etc - and he needs to be able to put together sentence...

| Money Talk|| re: Tips on reducing costs of a big vacation - LSUfan20005 on 3/5/14 at 8:32 am|
Depends on where you are going. I personally like doing the VRBO thing (sometimes you can negotiate) and grilling/cooking in vs. eating several meals a day out when on vacation.
That saves a ton on food costs. Besides, once you are toting a few kids around restaurants lose a bit of their lust...

It's amazing how certain childhood memories stick with you as you get older.
When I was maybe 12, my great uncle and I went hunting, unsuccessfully. On the way back home, the car in front of us hit a rabbit - my uncle promptly stopped and picked it up. Then he went into the woods and came out w...

Just roast a whole chicken and save the bones. Put the bones in a big pot with cool water and cook, not quite at a simmer, from lunch until dinner. Let cool, profit.
I never understood people who actually boil the chicken meat, what is this, the Middle Ages? You can make a spectacular roast ch...

Minivans are awesome. We reluctantly bought a Honda Odyssey when we had our third. Now we love it. The kids can get in on their own, easier to put a kid in a seat than an SUV, and plenty of space....

I did it with kids basically the same age as your two. It's not as hard as you may think. You have already done the hard stuff, now you are an experienced parent and have likely already learned from your mistakes (newborn and toddler) with the first two.
Pretty soon it'll be time for the 4yr ol...
| Food and Drink Board|| re: Making lasagna with grits... - LSUfan20005 on 2/25/14 at 1:04 pm|
You mean with polenta, right?
Use the yellow grits, cook up creamy (plenty of butter/cream, etc) and pour into a container to set into a chosen shape. Once set, just cut out and layer like you typically would with lasagne. You could add sausage while the grits cook for extra flavor.

I've often wondered if kids can "see" things that adults can't, God that sounds weird to say.
My son said something would come in his room at night and point at him (he would imitate)...this lasted for about a year then stopped. He never freaked out about it, it was just a creepy fact he lived w...

Just wait, the complete opposite may happen down the road. You see, you'll spend your late 20's/early 30's primarily parenting little kids. Then, once they are a little older, you'll be living it up in your late 30's/early 40's, while your friends who waited to have kids are tied down.
| Tiger Rant|| re: Is our strength and conditioning program overrated? - LSUfan20005 on 2/24/14 at 1:42 pm|
1.) The bench press is not a very effective measure of strength. It would be better to test squat or clean, but this is logistically difficult at the combine.
2.) Since they are testing max reps at 225, the combine doesn't even test bench press strength, more like muscular endurance. These guys...

Ok, slow your roll.
Butter (and other quality fats) is very healthy.
You can actually chart the decrease in butter/lard consumption and increase in substitutes and see a decline in average health over time.
If you want to lose some weight, just cut pointless carbs or give up wheat.

Definitely harder on the phone. The hardest part is being able to read and play off of your interviewers actions.
My company uses one-way video interviews as the first round, which is very challenging. They send you a webcam, you log in and read a question, then have 2min to record your video r...

Let's relax and take comfort in the fact that we have at least 3 QB's that could do well.
And for those, especially on the radio, who think that Jennings starts the season but Harris finishes it...I'd hate to witness the cluster that would be the early season if that is the case....
