re: Spring Game Schedule of Events and Guest Coaches - TigerattheU on 4/20/17 at 9:17 pm
They're doing a night game with some activities beforehand. They're trying to create a gameday-like atmosphere and are bringing in some former players for star power. You have to give them credit, all of this was on the Rant wishlist a few years ago. A baseball game at noon would be like G...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Clemson - expecting people to be on time is culturally insensitive. - TigerattheU on 4/14/17 at 9:59 pm
I'm a punctual person, and I like that I can depend on Chinese people to show up exactly when they say that they will. The Mongolian people were sometimes late, and I had to adapt to that reality. I was bothered that they showed up on time for buses, for example, but if it was a meeting I had sche...

re: Did Lyn Rollins or Jim Hawthorn Create the Train Joke - TigerattheU on 4/13/17 at 8:35 pm
I'd pick Hawthorne. I remember hearing that on the radio and thinking it was hilarious when I was a kid. That has to be before Lyn Rollins started doing LSU games because almost all of them weren't televised. It might be a common joke for many old broadcasters though, I don't know. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Puerto Princesa, Philippines - TigerattheU on 2/24/17 at 11:10 am
I think it starts early in the morning and you are finished by 3 or 4pm. They take you to a couple islands for snorkeling and then lunch on Cowrie island. It's not something you need to book far in advance, so you can verify the schedule with the agency you pick. We thought the tour offered by ou...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

I was there last year and did the Honda Bay island hopping tour. That was a solid day. The underground river is the biggest attraction, but we didn't want to devote a whole day to it. Lots of the bars had live music at night, so I'd find myself there drinking cheap San Miguel beer....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
