re: Chartered Bus to Tiger Stadium - diablo blanco
If I am not mistaken there is a parking lot for visiting fans' buses on Skip Bertman Drive, between the football practice facility and the softball complex. The walk to the stadium is not far from there, just over the rail road tracks and across Nicholson Drive. :geauxtigers:...

re: The Founder - Story of McDonalds - diablo blanco
*Spoilers* Their desire to control even the most minute details of the daily operations led to their downfall. Kroc thought it could be big, but he was pretty desperate at that point, according to the movie anyway. The model they developed was the basis for all of Kroc's success but two m...

re: What's the smartest thing your pet ever learned? - diablo blanco
My American bulldog learned to open the back door and go out on her own. We have lever style door handles and she would put her paw on the door facing and use the other paw to push the handle down and her nose to shove the door open. Then, when she was ready to come back in, she would do the same ...

re: Who Has Sat in the 700 Section at NRG? - diablo blanco

re: Ball to strike ratio versus OSU - diablo blanco
What I have seen from LSU pitching, during the CWS, is a general desire to make batters swing at balls. Even Hess last night, who was dominant, threw lots of pitches six inches off the plate, on purpose. Why do this, when you throwing absolute "cheese" and have one of the best defenses in the coun...

re: Ball to strike ratio versus OSU - diablo blanco
Finally, another voice of reason! Apparently OSU is a team that does not swing at bad pitches, or they didn't in the Monday game. Balls off the plate are just that, balls. Errors happen, but free bases lead to runs for this opponent....

Ball to strike ratio versus OSU - diablo blanco
Listening to the commentators, OSU is the most deadly team since the 1961 Yankees. With that said, the walks issued against them on Monday really were the major difference in the game, besides us not hitting. I think it is essential to a Tiger victory if we throw strikes and let our defense work...

iPad wifi greyed out - diablo blanco
Upon updating my iPad with the latest apple software update, I am unable to access the wifi button. It is gray and cannot be turned on. The Bluetooth is also inoperable. I have done a hard reboot and restored the iPad as if new and it remains gray. I have looked at YouTube and the apple website ...

re: People who intentionally hold up long lines. - diablo blanco
Was in line early one morning at the airport, these three people, with thick accents, approached my friend and I and asked if they could get ahead of us in line, as their flight was about to leave. So, we obliged them. Get to our gate, and the three of them are haggling with the person at the desk t...

re: Anybody else cook for a living here? - diablo blanco
Been in the restaurant business for years. Catered a gig last night for a local school's athletic booster club. Fried fish, potato casserole and green salad for 275. Coolest or worst story: when I got married many years ago, the rehearsal dinner was at my dad's restaurant. Not a real fancy pla...
