re: Question for old or semi old guys. - kjacksonp
I saw my first live game in 1956 as a six year old (A and M, lost 6-9). The most fun I have ever had watching LSU was 2019. '03 was fun, '07 was fun, '11 was fun until the BCSCG. But nothing compares to '19, and I remember '58 also. ...

re: Most depressing losses to you as a fan - kjacksonp
1998 Alabama LSU had not defeated Alabama in Tiger Stadium since 1969. Tigers led 16-7 late in game and gave up two long TD passes, the go ahead TD with 38 seconds to go. I don't get depressed over games, but I was depressed for three days after that giveaway....

re: LSU requiring proof of vaccination or negative PCR test for games - kjacksonp
There has never been a "killed" vaccine (not live attenuated like rubella) that has had reported long term effects that have held up under investigation. Pfizer is not a live vaccine, just a piece of protein from the virus. The risks are allergic, acute things, not long term. But the overall benef...

re: How would you handle a financially irresponsible mother in law? - kjacksonp
In the past I had a similar problem. I eventually, with her permission, gained access to her checking account online--not to use it but to monitor it. It was eye opening. Home Shopping Network was the big winner to the tune of the hundreds per month she was asking for to pay for needs. That stop...

re: Out of state fans - kjacksonp
Grew up in BR area (Central) but have lived in Mobile and endured Bama fans for several decades. Most of my friends are either Bama or Auburn grads/fans, so best years were when we were beating both, along with UF. Not often, but nice when it happens. My Bama friends are generally alumni, so no...

re: Brain-eating amoeba detected in La. water system - kjacksonp
Saw a case when I was a pediatric resident. Young kid had been diving in a pond. Force of the water into his nose allowed it to penetrate via the cribiform plate. Bad way to die. Was warned by allergist not to use tap water to do nasal saline washes because it can always be in regular tap water....
