Re: Tulane Wins Game 2 against the Tiggers

As long as a small but vocal group of Tulane fans insist on displaying their insecurity and inferiority complex where all things LSU are concerned, nothing will change.

Re: Rusty Staub dies

Met him at his restaurant in NYC years ago. He came out of the kitchen in his apron, we chatted about baseball and the culinary arts. A nice man who took a few minutes for us in the middle of a busy night.
