re: The Fly in New Orleans.. - SwatMitchell
It was one of our main hangouts in high school (mid 80s), Pits/Stoners in one area - Preps/Frats in another. The cops would roll through occasionally and chase everyone out. MIPs did not exist then&there and it was only illegal to sell alcohol to someone under 18, so we could try different conve...

Sky Cam - Why I Love It - SwatMitchell
I am watching the Peach Bowl via skycam through watchespn and have watched portions of other games this way. Here is what I love about it: 1) You get a better feel for the speed of the action and size of the players 2) No announcer noise, just the crowd and the bands 3) OL splits and DL fronts...
