re: All Quiet on the Western Front - tigger1
Erna Remarque (Erich's other sister) lived thought out the war in Germany (to my understanding), I do not think the charges were trumped up. Many Germans were beheaded by the peoples court for saying the war was lost. I can tell you more were hanged or shoot for saying the same thing or along that l...

re: Gal Gadot to Star in Hedy Lamarr Series From ‘The Affair’ Creator at Showtime - tigger1
Big fan of Gal, but she is not Hedy Lamarr. Of all the old stars of Hollywood, Hedy Lamarr is the only one that could walk into a room and stop the room. This happened many times at parties and the verses places the stars hung out in the 30's, 40's and 50's. ...

re: When Curley Hallman came to LSU; Crazy ‘bout Curley bumper.... - tigger1
The horror stories out of the football office on Hallman are enough to make any wonder why he was not fired much earlier in his stay at LSU. I said on the radio at the time of the Hallman hire LSU was on a downhill ride. Westego but Joe saved us so much money on the Hallman and DiNardo hires...

re: “Old Man” Harrison of Pawn Stars has passed away at age 77 - tigger1
The show when it first started made it seem he was in the US Navy in WWII, he was born in 1941 and joined the Navy around the mid to late 1950's and would serve in the Navy until 1976. I think that is why so many people thought he was much older. ...

re: What are the worst Steven Spielberg movies? - tigger1
1941 was a good movie, many great inside jokes. 1941 the extended version is 27 minutes longer and is far better than the first run movie. Steven has had a number of bombs, but 1941 isn't one of them, many at the time it came out were looking for another Jaws, Close Encounters etc., it made mo...

re: Best non-Trek, non-Star Wars Sci-Fi TV Series - tigger1
Battlestar Galactica remake, I did not like the ending. B5 had a very bad first season and a rushed finally season, with very good seasons between. Stargate SG1 fair first season with season 2-6 being very good, last 3 it went down hill (or as it is called when Teal gets hair stop watching). ...

re: LSU’s Top Quarterbacks of All-Time (Career Stats Included) - tigger1
1936 team had more talent that 1946 But the 1943 would have been super talented across the board. LSU going into 1943 would have been loaded, but that team got busted up to the transfer to the Navy schools, and the Army not letting it's players play on school teams. We lost Jones dad to Tula...

TouchdownTony the LSU talent level dropped off in 88 as we lost our 2 starting wr and the three that replaced them only 5-7 Tony Moss could catch. The number of dropped passes in 1988 is amazing, watch the 1988 earthquake game and count the dropped passes and then think that is just 1 game. Arnsp...
