re: Is it really necessary to close interstates 10 and 12 from Lafayette to Slidell? - Ramblin Wreck
[quote]Maybe the state should leave all of those highways open and then everyone can come here and complain about the black ice and accidents that would be widespread. [/quote] I don't doubt that some stretches are icy and should have been closed, my question is was it necessary to close the enti...

Is it really necessary to close interstates 10 and 12 from Lafayette to Slidell? - Ramblin Wreck
Just got to Baton Rouge after driving from Houston. My bad for not checking the road closures, but since it went up to the 40's today I didn't really expect anything to still be closed. I was a bit surprised when I got to Lafayette and was forced to exit. I would have thought a road side sign wou...

Television Show - Finding Your Roots - Ramblin Wreck
Was channel surfing and caught the tail end of this PBS show. It was actually pretty interesting. The host was going through Bryant Gumbel's family history with him. He shocked Bryant by showing him that his GGG Grandfather, may have missed a G or 2, became a free man in Louisiana in 1835 and wor...

[quote]and it is quite possible his victory played a part in their decision ...[/quote] No it didn't. A billion dollar decision isn't based on one four year term that will go back to a republican. It's not like it was a landslide. If 22,000 hadn't voted for Saban. Mickey Mouse, etc. Moore woul...

Just saw another article crediting Doug Jones victory for Alabama winning Toyota Mazda - Ramblin Wreck
In case you didn't know, Huntsville, Alabama was selected as the site for a new Toyota - Mazda plant over a site in North Carolina that offered $1.5B in incentives. Almost twice as much as Alabama. Huntsville won because there are 57,000 people in Alabama that work in the auto industry between Mer...

From watching games, the cow bells are extremely annoying, but Auburn's giant end zone screen facing opponents should not be allowed. How many kickers are blinded when they set it on epileptic seizure mode?...

re: How many FB national championships has your team won that you witnessed? - Ramblin Wreck
Grew up a Bama fan and kids go there. Have seen them win it 8 times. Also watched my school win it in 1990, so 8 + 1 or 9 if that is allowed. I started keeping up with football when I was about 11 years old and have averaged celebrating a national championship about every 4 1/2 years over the las...

re: Why you don't want an 8 Team Playoff - Ramblin Wreck
[quote]On the bright side for you is that as a Tech fan, you don’t need to worry about any of this[/quote] Well we did win our division in 2006, 2009, 2012, and 2014. One of those being the conference championship. Remind me how many times Georgia has won the SEC East since 2006?...

re: Where all the Tamiflu at? - Ramblin Wreck
Went to the doctor today with flu symptoms. He didn't recommend Tamiflu. Said it causes stomach issues and diarrhea while only shortening the flu by about 12 hours. Talked me out of it. Also said it weakens the immune system leaving you the possibility of catching something else. Basically reco...

Why you don't want an 8 Team Playoff - Ramblin Wreck
For those of you that favor an 8 team playoff, do you think the conference champions of the P5 conferences should get an automatic invite? If so, here is something to consider, let's say Georgia Tech's season had gone a little different in conference. We lost to Tennessee and Georgia. What if Geo...

Saw Nick Saban yesterday - Ramblin Wreck
My son is in the Alabama band and they were putting pom pom's in the seats on Alabama's side of the field yesterday. He said he was near the field and noticed he was right next to Nick Saban. We asked if he spoke to him and our son replied, "no, he looked really mad". For Bama fans this has to be ...
