re: Drive or Fly? Baton Rouge to Austin - BrockLanders
[quote]Austin's airport is even worse than MSY if that's believable. [/quote] I was just there last week, and I can assure you that they must have improved for the better. Compared to MSY, it's a very laid back airport. TSA people were a bit easier to stand as well....

re: Name your top LSU baseball player not named Bregman, Walker, or McDonald - BrockLanders
[quote]Name from past: Who's the player from Chalmette who had a clutch hit to beat 55-5 Texas A&M AT College Station Regional to go to Omaha? (We had to beat them TWICE.) I think he caught the final out too. Hawthorne went nuts :) Think it was '89 ?[/quote] Pat Garrity was his name, and it was a...

re: Top things to do in London besides the landmarks - BrockLanders
[quote] Not a bad idea. York is a 2 hour train ride from King's Cross and you can walk from the train station to see the town and cathedral. I liked York quite a bit for the 1 night I stayed there. London can wear on you after a while so a day trip like this can be nice. Also, spend some time wa...

re: Top things to do in London besides the landmarks - BrockLanders
Eat lunch in Green Park and rent one of the chairs - it's just a really nice way to get away from the hustle and bustle for a little bit. Ye Olde Mitre is a really cool super old pub that's absolutely worth a visit. When you're tired and don't feel like eating out anywhere (believe me, it'...

re: Favorite and Least Favorite Professor at LSU - BrockLanders
[quote]Rick Moreland, English. He taught the modern criticism class, knew it was difficult material that nobody really wanted to do, and basically just let us have relaxed class discussion. He was much more concerned with actual learning than a letter grade. [/quote] It was truly gratifying to ge...

re: Uber-like taxi options in England/Ireland - BrockLanders
It really is fun taking the tube in London, so please do get yourself an Oyster card as soon as you arrive. And you'll be amazed and how genuinely nice and helpful the staff are if you get confused by anything. Enjoy it - England is so great. :cheers:...

re: 30 years ago today was arguably the basketball version of the '79 Southern Cal game - BrockLanders
[quote]His snarky Brown comment came months later in an SI article about the upcoming '87-'88 season.In the immediate aftermath Knight was very complimentary of LSU.[/quote] He also made a very truthful and painful statement after the game - "It didn't surprise me when they went to a delay (in th...

re: Cliff Burton appreciation thread - BrockLanders
[quote]Cliff was something else, if he had lived and Kirk had died, I wonder if they would have asked Dave to come back.[/quote] This would never have happened. You don't invite someone back who constantly badmouths you and claimed to write most of your entire song catalog. That's what he was doi...

re: Which restaurant should make a come back - BrockLanders
[quote]Stella! - New Orleans [/quote] Only if Boswell opens it up in River Ridge and charges 40% less than his FQ prices. The rent/lease costs ought to drop by that much, so it should even out for him, the wifey and the sports cars. This time around, he'll have to pay the employees as well. ...

re: Get Out - 100% RT Score - BrockLanders
[quote]So, still 100%? So, better than The Godfather, Saving Private Ryan, Good Will Hunting, Animal House, The Incredibles, and the 1984 Ghostbusters? Sorry, while I have no doubt the movie is good and I do plan to see it, this smells like politically driven criticism to me.[/quote] Maybe I'm ...

re: PMAC Concerts - BrockLanders
[quote]The New Orleans Arena opening in 1999 was huge factor in bands skipping Baton Rouge & going to the bigger market in NOLA. [/quote] That's not really accurate. Baton Rouge started to get bypassed around 1988. I'd say 1987, but Boston and U2 played that year (and skipped New Orleans like us...

Pathologists manage laboratories and blood banking as well.[/quote] The only one I ever knew did manage a blood bank, and she was a very busy human being. She would also have to be on call to answer questions abou...

re: What is the best meal you have ever eaten in your life? - BrockLanders
One of my favorites was takeaway from Fortnum & Mason in London, where I took the grub to nearby Green Park and rented a park deck chair and just enjoyed it all. Got a totally excellent roast turkey sammich and a beautiful package of smoked salmon that I decided to crudely eat with my bare hands...
