Probably the best place for a a group viewing experience would be Eclipse on The Plains (yes, if you're from here, it's referred to as on The Plains). Good food downstairs and lots or room and TVs upstairs. 40 beers on tap. Less than a mile from the Burrow homestead and the Athens High field where it all started.

My wife and i are big fans of Cajun Cuisine,although I'm not a big fan of crawfish.

Anyway,we were trying to figure out what to make for supper on Saturday.

After looking up the recipe its gonna be Cajun pastalaya.

The drunkest fan base in America meets the impossible bar crawl.

This should be streamed on ESPN+.

While is a very creative? idea, I am anxious to see how many people actually do this. I know this is big time football with a big time fan base, but if itís more than 20 people, Iíll be amazed. What do you think?

I didn't see mention on the LSU board, but I did see that OCF found his way over there...

In addition to Civil War history, I was expecting OCF and Mrs. OCF to be arranging for limo service.

My daughter graduated from UGA this spring and when Joe first transferred I posted some background on Joe on Tigernet and while a couple of posters were nice and thanked me, several were rather snarky. When I posted that Jimmy was retiring they were like who cares. While I will be pulling very hard for UGA Saturday, it has been fun to see Joeís success.

Thanks for the link. I've registered in order to comment, but my account has not yet been activated by the mods. There's a few on there who are speaking accurately, and understand that Sherman did not burn everything in his path. But, the major historically inaccuracy that needs to be corrected is the joker who posted that Sherman was the first LSU football coach, in addition to being their first president.. It was established on BA years ago that he was the first OHIO football coach, and we have all the fake facts to prove it! Hell, his stepfather was our second graduate! ;-)

Made chicken and shrimp Cajun Pastalaya Saturday.
We had found a butcher who will make andouille if he's not too busy and you give him a few days.
He was able to make it for us.

Cajun Pastalaya more then lived up to its billing !
