[quote]That's true, but I work for an engineering firm, and that's stuff that's found out from the get-go before construction begins. [/quote]You would think so.

Nantz is great. I like Dan Hicks a lot. Today I also liked Azinger and Strange. Faxon, not so much. And leave it to Fox to Fox-up a golf broadcast with a woman holding down second-studio spots with feature stories. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

He looks and sounds completely uncomfortable leading a golf telecast. If he knows the sport or its history, it does not come through. He's OK at football bit IMO not a no. 1 guy. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]Really sad what has become of WWL. Deke and Bobby are totally unlistenable. Has there ever been anyone more arrogant, with absolutely no reason for that arrogance, than Deke Bellavia? Garic is only slightly less intolerable. [/quote]All of this and more. I get that NOLA loves its personalitie...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]High heat is key. [/quote]Convection is key IMO. I do mine at 425 on convection setting, which brings it down to 400. Top rack, nice and crispy. Himalayan pink salt, pepper, avocado or olive oil ... rock and roll. ...

[quote]one of the best 1-2 pitching combos in LSU history.[/quote]Not even close. Lange wasn't close to his dominance last year, and Poche was gutsy as usual but very inconsistent. Their performances this year put them far down the list of starting combos. ...

re: Someone Please Explain to Me What Exactly Trump Said that's Wrong? - Ice Cold on 6/7/16 at 9:22 am
My personal opinion is that Trump supporters as a rule are conspiratorial by nature, likely to engage in scapegoating, and lack critical thinking skills. I believe these things because they are the strongest inferences to make about someone who actually reads, hears, or sees what Trump says or does,...
