re: Who here remembers Sid Crocker ? - Purplehaze
In the early 70's, I lived off of North Blvd and my now wife and I were frequent patrons at the Pastime. Sid and John Mahaffey were regulars between 7 and 9 each night. Of course they had to leave around 9 to get back for the 10 o'clock news. Just like on Cheers, they had dibs on their preferred ...

The other orange throwing game was LSU/Ole Miss in 1970. Archie had broken his arm and played the game for Ole Miss with a cast on his left arm. Casanova returned 2 punts for touchdowns and Craig Burns returned another for a score. It was if all of the oranges in Baton Rouge were in the stadium t...

re: Classics from the Old Timers on the Rant - Purplehaze
My dad was a LSU alum-1938-and in 1959 he got 4 season tickets. I was 9 years old and he told me that I could go to all of the games with him and 2 of his friends. The week of the LSU/Ole Miss game came around and the owner of the town (Kaplan) drug store wanted to go the game. My dad told him th...

re: RIP Huey Long - Purplehaze
Now if you really read your Louisiana history, Huey's machine replaced the New Orleans machine. The difference is that the New Orleans machine only benefitted the wealthy. Huey saw the way to power by using a populist base of power that in turn made other, new pigs to the trough wealthy....

re: RIP Huey Long - Purplehaze
Search the advocate's files for a interview with the nurse who helped treat Huey as he was being prepped for surgery. From memory, she asked him what happened to his eye and Huey said that's where he hit me. IMHO, what happened was Weiss asked Huey a question and Huey told him to frick off. Weis...

re: AC question #2. - Purplehaze
We bought this house in Houston new in 1995. It is a one story and just one unit. It finally crapped out this year. A new unit cost us around $7K. If your unit is that old, then you will save some $$$ on your electric bill as a new one has to be more efficient. If your upper unit is leaking on...
