| Tech Board|| re: UVerse TV vs DirecTV - Newkie on 7/12/14 at 9:25 pm|
Had DirecTV for six years; have had UVerse for two months now.
Loved DirecTV. Really no complaints, and for me, the customer service was always great. Problem was, I had to go through Comcast for Internet, so between DirecTV/Comcast Internet, my monthly bill was over $200.
Decided to cut costs...

Doesn't matter if it's the best ever or in your top five or top ten, As long as it was enjoyed.
It's my favorite. But next week, I might say The Wire was my favorite. The following week, The Sopranos. I don't feel like I have to make a firm decision on a TV show. As long as I enjoyed it, that's w...

At the dome, I find myself specifically watching Gallette on basically every defensive play. He's that much fun to watch.
Anyway, his recognition and ability to get off blocks on run plays yesterday stood out to me big time yesterday. This confirms what I thought I was seeing.
Thanks for the p...

The Fly is unanimously considered the one episode that can be skipped. Pretty sure the guy saying it would change your life was being sarcastic.
Anyway, while I enjoyed seasons 1 and 2, the wife and I didn't breeze right through them. It was simply a good show, then. Becomes a really good show in...

If this is the same thing as cabeza, I love it. Have a little restaurant in the Texas town my in-laws are from, where I make sure to always get a cabeza taco with cilantro and onion. An absolute favorite of mine....

Best advice right here. Roussel is best bet for after a wedding. I enjoy the Boxer, but not a great post-wedding spot. Mahoney's is my personal favorite, and has best overall beer selection. As far as crowds in Houma, I've always found it hit our miss. Sometimes it's packed, sometimes it's completel...

Back in '02 after beating Pittsburgh in the Dome, there was a STRONG Who Dat chant on the way out. All of a sudden it gets silent, and this old man with a cane and decked out in San Francisco gear appears in the middle of the crowd and goes, "Da Fawty Ninuhs! Da Fawty Ninuhs! TWO WEEKS." Dude got bo...

For all that he did wrong, Gregg Williams had our defense play as well as it could with the talent we had. His style was perfect for our offense, when it would take an early lead. Unfortunately, it's overshadowed by two playoff duds from our safeties, and of course, the bounty crap....
| Gaming Board|| re: What was THE game that got you into video games? - Newkie on 3/1/13 at 11:07 pm|
I vividly remember playing California Games and Hero nonstop on the old Atari. Also remember E.T. (such a crappy game). Couldn't be any older than 4 or 5 at the time.
After that, it was Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt, Goal, Bayou Billy (also crappy) on the NES....

$6 a pound at various places in Houma. I hate eating crawfish at restaurants, but my wife and her daughter love it on random weeknights, so they share a few pounds while I go with the fried seafood platter.
That said, looking like a home crawfish boil tomorrow. Can't wait....

The speed on World Cup was jacked up, and it might cater to a bit of an arcadey style of play, but with that said, it was fun as hell.
Having every international team, along with a full-fledged qualifying schedule did a lot for this game.
ETA: Of course if you want club teams, the regular ed...

| Soccer Board|| re: MLS Offseason Thread (OLAS Danny Mwanga to Colorado?) - Newkie on 1/9/13 at 6:59 pm|
MLS Direct Kick is a no-brainer for me. On DTV it's $80 single payment or $20 in four payments. I've got it the past two seasons, without even necessarily having a favorite team, and loved it.
That said, since then, I've kind of settled on SKC as my team. That could change though. While I have a ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: No one is talking about how the 2012 Colts suceeded under similar conditions - Newkie on 12/26/12 at 9:50 am|
I've thought about this topic a lot. The Colts have done great and deserve many props for the impressive season they've had.
That said, I think the biggest difference is that the Saints had an established foundation that was absolutely rocked by the suspensions of three key guys (CSP, Vitt and Lo...

Over the past couple years, he's been our best CB at making a play on the ball, but the last few weeks it's seemed like he either loses it or never spots it. Happened against the Giants, where he never spotted it, and then on Dez's first TD yesterday, he seemed like he never tracked it. In position,...
