re: Best / Favorite Public Course in Houston Area - DestrehanTiger
I like Traditions at Cypresswood. The price isn't bad, and it is usually in very good shape. I also think the price difference is enough between it and the regular Cypresswood course to keep up the pace of play....

re: Throwback Jerseys - DestrehanTiger
I think simply adding a white stripe to the pants does a world of difference. I don't really understand why it was ever removed since it matches the helmets. If we can't go back to the full throwback, I'd take a black/white/black pants stripe....

re: Match Day 8/11 - DestrehanTiger
[quote]Wenger is dumb if he doesn't ditch the back three IMO[/quote] Arsenal was solid in the back three with Koscielny, Monreal, and a non-retarded Holding last year. Also, it was mentioned in the game thread, but Bellerin did not defend today. They may have been more solid with Ox on the right ...

re: Amazon Echo now supports Fire TV - DestrehanTiger
Unless I am missing something, this just doesn't seem all that useful to me. If everything is off, I will still need to turn my TV on manually (I guess if I had a smart TV, this would be different). If the Fire TV is already on, it has Alexa built in. So, this new Echo feature just saves me from hav...

re: The Arsenal: 2017/18 Thirsty Thursdays in Europe...heh - DestrehanTiger
[quote]But if Wenger insists on Monreal starting then I would prefer Sead at LWB rather than him. [/quote] Interesting. I feel like Monreal has become one of our best players. He is so extremely versatile. The decision on whether he plays will likely be moot since our injuries will likely occur a...

re: The Arsenal: 2017/18 Thirsty Thursdays in Europe...heh - DestrehanTiger
What do you guys think the plan is with the LWB and LCB? I was thinking about our best 11 today, and I wasn't quite sure what the preferences are there. Is Kolasinac better at wingback or center back? I know that when he came on in the Community Shield, OX stayed at LWB and Nacho moved to CB, but I ...

re: Name a popular book that you've disliked or gave up on - DestrehanTiger
I read The Gunslinger then about 150 pages of Drawing of Three and stopped. It wasn't like I stopped dead. Something came up and I didn't pick it up for a month. I haven't had any interest in going back. I asked a friend that has read everything by King, and she told me that if I didn't like it by n...

re: New Nike NBA uniforms are starting to leak - DestrehanTiger
That's not a Bulls specific decision. That's the cut of the template. None of the jerseys have striping on the back, unless I missed one. I'm not saying it's a good look or an excuse, but it's not a trendy thing decided to do just for the Bulls. ...

re: Parking at NRG Stadium -- Tigers vs BYU - DestrehanTiger
They may do something similar to what they did when the USMNT played Argentina in the Copa America Semis last year. They had like 20 busses ready to go. They headed straight downtown without stopping. Even if you parked in Midtown, it would be easier to get an Uber back to Midtown than wait for the ...

re: Soccer Podcasts - DestrehanTiger
This isn't going to appeal to a large portion of this board, but I listen to Arsecast twice a week. It's the only soccer podcast I listen to other than MIB. Speaking of MIB, they used to be can't miss listening for me. Now, I rarely finish their episodes because it gets pushed behind Arsecast and...
