So this sack of shit has confessed to everything. I just wonder how much tax money is going to be wasted on trial and appeals, etc. where they try to plead insanity or whatever.

Media just reported that the school had an armed guard on duty but he did not "come in contact" with the shooter. Translation: "  I get paid minimum wage, ain't no way I'm going to risk my life to Help these kids"

I say this assuming that all of FL is like our county.... All of our schools here have a School Resource Officer SRO assigned to them. They are county deputies, it's their job. Not a minimum wage armed guard. Now the problem is that most of our schools only have one officer on duty, 9 out of 10 times that is fine, but.... That school was 3,000+ kids, that's impossible for one officer. They could be 300 yards away from any given incident.

Horrible tragedy. There are some really fucked up people in this world.

I respectfully disagree... Whataburger is life!

I’m sorry. Whataburger has something other than honey butter chicken biscuits???

If I'm doing Whataburger breakfast the only option is a sausage bob combo. You take the hash browns and put them on the sandwich. You take a side of picante sause and put on it. Then put the top bun back on.... That's hard to beat right there.

Hub City Beer about 20th and Hardy. Friend owns and runs it, Alex will take care of you.

Thanks for the tip BDR! I went by there Saturday and talked to the young lady working for about an hour or so. Super friendly. We talked about different local breweries and beer, got my growler filled up with a SoPro porter that was really good. I will definitely be swinging back there on game days and fill up for tailgating.

#13 Re: Southern Miss » So did you go to Iowa? » 2018-02-01 15:47:51

About a week ago I met a guy down here in a bar who was from Iowa and a hawkeye fan. He was a probably mid to late 20's and never heard the lawsuit story. So I proceeded to fill him in. He didn't think the logos looked anything alike, because they don't.

Side note.... It was an oyster bar that I frequent, but I couldn't get the yankee to try one.

Posting here for lack of another place....

I'm going to be up in H'burg Friday and Saturday and was curious about any places that would fill a growler. I know there is Southern Prohibition brewery there, does anybody know if they fill a gallon growler? Is there anywhere else in town that will?

#16 Re: Watches » Not Really a Watch Guy..... » 2018-01-29 08:37:06

Really like it so far, but not smart enough to set it. That took a few. Only issue is that my wrist size falls sort of right between two holes. I'm hoping to wear it on the tighter one and it will sort of form and stretch a little to fit.

#18 Re: Watches » Not Really a Watch Guy..... » 2018-01-26 08:46:23

I haven't worn a watch in years, but recently decided to jump back in. I was looking pretty hard a a Galaxy watch to pair with my phone. Ultimately I decided I wouldn't use half of the functions and went with a regular ole watch. Should be delivered today, looking forward to getting it.

The biggest example is the Kentucky game. When the TV coverage opened up, I was shocked by how empty and dingy M.M. Roberts looked. It was one of the most disappointing moments of my many years as a USM fan. Here's USM's return game from an SEC team we beat last year, a team that went on to play in the Gator Bowl, and we get... that??

After the game, Gilbert was touting how much money he made. Apparently, he successfully shook down the core group of fans who didn't mind paying $40 or whatever to get in, and kept everyone else out.

Maybe that's appropriate for some games. It was not appropriate for a winnable home opener against an SEC team. There's no proving it, but I think that a big, enthusiastic home crowd might have made the difference that day.

I gotta say that I was shocked at the crowd for that game. I sat there in disbelief that nobody came to that game.

Then the North Texas home loss sealed the season for me. I lost all interest at that point.
