re: My only regret was I never saw Pantera live - Htowntiger90
Actually saw Pantera open for Skid Row. NYE 1991 in NOLA. Very powerful live show. Skid Row was riding the wave of their first album and touring on their not-so-inspiring sophomore album. Pantera was up and coming and seethed with energy on stage. Still remember the energy they had and apprec...

re: Joseph J. Ellis - Htowntiger90
He taught at the US Military Academy during his Vietnam Army years. For a history professor, that should have been enough to name-drop for extra teaching cred. Guess he thought no one would check on that in the early days of the Internet?...

re: Advice for the Shriners Classic - Htowntiger90
[quote]What kind of bars? I'll be in town hitting places around, mainly breweries[/quote] St. Arnold's is a good brewery. Karbach may be worth checking out too. Biggio's at the downtown Marriott is a good sports bar, walking distance to Minute Maid. If you're into Tex-Mex, hit El Tiempo on R...

re: Joseph J. Ellis - Htowntiger90
I've read 'American Sphinx' and 'Founding Brothers'. Both are very good books. Ellis got in trouble in his Mount Holyoke teaching days for claiming to serve with the 101st Airborne in Vietnam. Though he was in the Army, he was never sent to Vietnam. The college suspended him for a year. That ...

re: Interesting Non-Catholic-Based Books on the History of the Catholic Church and/or Popes? - Htowntiger90
"Papal Sin" by Garry Wills. I have it but will admit I've not read it yet. Wills is a Catholic and a good writer. It definitely should be an interesting read....

re: Books on New Orleans - Mafia, organized crime - Htowntiger90
I'll second Mafia Kingfish. I came across a paperback copy of it in the 90's. You might have to search library catalogs & Amazon for it. NOLA was the second largest point of entry for Italian immigrants to the US. Carlos Marcello was the kingpin of the NOLA mafia scene for many years. The book...

re: The Battle of the Wilderness: May 5-6, 1864 by Gordon C. Rhea - Htowntiger90
I read this one in the '90s - it was good and I remember Rhea being a good writer. His book on Spotsylviania Court House, which was the immediate aftermath of the Wilderness, was also good. I see that he's written some others on the VA campaigns....

re: What is Alabama doing that we aren't? - Htowntiger90
There seem to be plenty of years where they have several guys leave early. Might depend on whether they win it all. And when they lose lots of guys they usually have quality depth coming in. Especially OL. ...

re: Question about the bands during the game. - Htowntiger90
I was up in the Terrace in the LSU end zone. I could barely hear our band. Heard Clemson band loud and clear from other end zone. I recall past Sugar Bowls where they put extra bleachers on sidelines for the bands. Wish they’d have done that. We could have heard ours and they would’ve had mor...
