Written by

graham-panthersWith the Pro “Bore” Bowl behind us, we can swivel our attention to the Super Bowl in Indy, the build up to which may be summarized in three words: Manning on Manning.

A game starring Eli Manning and hosted in effect by older bro Peyton is what you could call a media feast

Outside of the game itself, the most popular topic of conversation-- will Peyton return to the Colts next season;  Throw in the fact that the game is playing inside Peyton's building.

LSU's QB Mettenberger Has Great Potential
Written by

lsu_tigersWith Jordan Jefferson and Jarrett Lee moving on, the quarterback option will not be a popular part of the LSU playbook.

Zach Mettenberger, who has an NFL arm, Tigers fans will see LSU open up its offense. Everyone around Baton Rouge is excited about the potential of Metttenberger, who already has an NFL body (6-foot-5, 222 pounds, has arm strength, is a good decision-maker, can make tough throws and has good mechanics. He's not very mobile but he had a 25-yard run down to the 1 yard line in the Tigers' 52-3 victory over Ole Miss last season.

He does have a maturity issue, however.

shapiroBy Dean M. Shapiro  

Whenever you hear the expression, “Your roots are showing,” it doesn’t always apply to one’s hair. It can also apply to a singer’s musical style. In the case of Percy Sledge, a gospel upbringing in the rural countryside of the Deep South was never more apparent.

Country Club Romney vs. Conservative Gingrich In GOP Race
Written by

class-warfareIt is clear the moderate insiders in the Republican Party are not happy these days. Their favorite candidate, Multiple Choice Mitt Romney, is not doing too well in the polls. He is stuck in the 25 percent range in the polls and cannot seem to generate new support. Along the way, a host of conservative alternatives have risen to the top, surpassing Romney. It reflects a clear distaste for Romney among the conservative base of the GOP. 

This type of divide has been apparent in the Republican Party for over 50 years. The primary battles between Rockefeller vs. Goldwater, Ford vs. Reagan, Bush Sr. vs. Reagan, Dole vs. Forbes, and finally McCain vs. Huckabee exposed this ideological divide.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
