re: Why do some people not like black and white films? - tigger1
If I made a top 200 movie list more than 1/2 would be black and white films. [b]Also one of those would be silent film.[/b] Silent movies are good, but when sound hit it destroyed many actors. Black and White sound films in many ways can not be equaled today, as there is no studio system, s...

re: The Pacific - series - tigger1
OB has less taken out of the story than the Pacific. Snafu and others in the 1st Marines told me much about Lecki and there is much left out of the show. The home coming never happened the way it was shown in the show, as Snafu came back to Louisiana months before Eugene and Eugene was still in t...

re: The Pacific - series - tigger1
The idea of following one person in the US Marines would not work due to the higher causality rate per day in combat in the Pacific. Band of Brothers only works due to Winters being promoted to Battalion commander, as the company by early 1945 was not the same due to causalities, the show centers...

re: SEC championships since integration. - tigger1
coachcrisp this is very true.... One person here even appears not to know that in the 1890s and 1900's even most of the college football coaches played baseball to earn money or umpire games to make money. Baseball was king for a long time and in the south stores, rich people and poor fielded ...

re: SEC championships since integration. - tigger1
There were no scholarships in the old days and if a school paid a players way, that would have meant they were professionals and would be banned. 1950 is the first year of scholarships. Football like track and field were off seasons sports and baseball players played those to stay in shape, no...

re: SEC championships since integration. - tigger1
Irons Puppet as I posted you really need to start reading about baseball, at LSU there are over 18 players to play pro baseball before 1980 and 3 of those a famous and our first pro baseball player is Roland Howell from 1910.
