re: When Was Southern Culture the Most Popular Nationally? - GumBro Jackson
[quote]When was the start of "southern culture" in your opinion, OP?[/quote] Probably as long as there have been people here. Native American tribes in the south were different than tribes in other parts of the country. As soon as European settlers first came to the US there was a difference in t...

[quote]When you mention southern literature, and you talk about John Grisham without mentioning William Faulkner, it distracts me to the point that I cannot focus on the question.[/quote] Of course Faulkner is the undisputed king of southern literature, but my question is about recent/post WWII c...

When Was Southern Culture the Most Popular Nationally? - GumBro Jackson
This is a little random, but I was wondering at what point (let's say "recent" history, so post WWII) was Southern culture most popular nationally? The south has always had a culture that is distinct from the rest of the US and has often been looked down upon by the rest of the country. When has...

re: Dale Earnhardt Jr retiring at end of year - GumBro Jackson
It is crazy how far NASCAR's popularity has fallen in the last several years, or maybe it is just crazy that it go so popular for a while there. It seems that the decline in popularity will only increase with by far the most popular driver retiring (and Gordon, who while divisive was also very popul...

re: Best MLB Stadium? - GumBro Jackson
[quote]Nats Park and Citi Field are the Mendoza Line of ballparks to me. Good, solid, modern experiences with great sight lines, clean, easy to get to. In the city, but not really a downtown vibe (better than being in the boonies). But just kind of meh aesthetically.[/quote] I haven't been to Cit...

re: Forbes 2017 MLB Team Values - GumBro Jackson
It will be interesting to see how this plays out long-term. Back around 1900 I believe that horse racing, baseball, and boxing were the three most popular sports in the US. Starting around mid-century, football grew and grew, becoming by far the most popular sport in America. Basketball, and to a le...

re: Thor Ragnarok Teaser Trailer Released - GumBro Jackson
This one looks more interesting than the first two, but for me the Thor movies have been among the worst in the MCU. They have the best MCU villain, but other than that are pretty weak. I personally prefer the more street level heroes, so maybe I was just never going to like them that much. Way t...

re: United CEO doubles down, calls passenger "belligerent", claims United followed rules - GumBro Jackson
Overbooking is a ridiculous policy. Can you imagine if sports tickets worked that way? Oh yeah, here are your tickets to the big game, but you may or may not actually have a seat reserved. If airlines insist on overbooking, then they should be held to a market-based solution wherein they keep upp...
