At least this would be illegal to do to a Tiger



I thought it would be illegal to do to an alligator as well but I was wrong.  We just wont tell PETA.

The American alligator is federally classified as “threatened due to similarity of appearance” to other endangered and threatened crocodilians. This provides federal protection for alligators but allows state-approved management and control programs. Alligators can be legally taken only by individuals with proper licenses or permits. Florida, Louisiana, Georgia, South Carolina, and Texas have problem or nuisance alligator control programs that allow permitted hunters to kill or facilitate the removal of nuisance alligators. Other states use state wildlife officials to remove problem animals.

Root for the SEC or LSU

If Florida goes to the National Championship, LSU will not go to the Rose Bowl.  Michigan would be picked instead and the Rose Bowl could preserve their Big 10 Pac 10 matchup.  There is no way the Rose Bowl would chose LSU over Michigan.  If we do not go to the Rose Bowl, it looks like the Sugar Bowl, if they chose us.  The Sugar Bowl has the first pick since they lost Florida to the National Championship and hopefully they will pick LSU.  If they choose another SEC team, we would get shut out of the BCS because only 2 teams from one conference can play in the BCS.

I would love to go to the Rose Bowl, but the Sugar would be a lot nicer on my check book.

Thats just one man's opinion.


If LSU beats Auburn this weekend I think we can easily go undefeated.  Tennessee and Florida are overated and no else is that good.  You heard it here first.

I missed my first game

This is a pretty big deal to me, but I missed my first LSU game where I actually had nothing else to do.  Since 1997 I have gone to virtually ever home game.  The only one I regularly miss is the Arkansas game because it is held on the Friday after Thanksgiving and none of my family lives in Baton Rouge, so I am usually visiting them.  Yesterday, I decided not to go for several reasons:

  • Who would I hang out with?  Most of my friends have moved away and I had only a few to hang out with that were tailgating.
  • The ideal of fighting the traffic to get there and then fighting to get back did not appeal to me.
  • My friend John was having a barbecue with ribs, beer and the game on a projector.
  • I had a lot of work I needed to get done and when I go to a game it is usually a 15 hour event with a long recovery on Sunday.

If you would have told me 2 years ago that I would have willing missed going to LSU game I would have said you were crazy.  I guess it fits into my ideal that the more time I spend working the closer I will achieve my goal of moving away from Baton Rouge.
