Where are the Tigers?

I can't help but notice that since you have been in existence there has been little to no coverage on the Tennessee State University Tigers.

I just feel like we are underappreciated, undervalued and marginalized, and it is really a shame.

"sid, there's people who commit crimes at 17 that deserve life without parole, don't you agree? Huckabee has a brain and makes his own decisions (I know that is debatable, but just go with it for a minute) so he could have chosen to NOT to commute his sentence."
Yes, Blanket I agree with you. But we don't have the history of the crime. It was aggravated robbery. Many presidents and governors commute sentences. It's a tough decision. No one has a crystal ball.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/1/09 at 2:05

sid, did you read what I quoted from the article?

By: Funditto on 12/1/09 at 2:31

sid doesn't read, just replies.

OK, I'll write a letter. Look for one signed by Seymour Butts in the next few weeks.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/1/09 at 2:32

that's awesome, Fun!

By: gdiafante on 12/1/09 at 2:34

I wrote a letter and sent it to my local DJ. It was about a rocking little record I wanted him to play.

He responded that under no circumstances would he play Wing. Bummer.

City Paper To Get New Big Cheese
By Kleinheider Posted on December 1, 2009 at 1:32 pm
Early next year, The City Paper will have a new name atop its masthead.
Stephen George, now editor of the alt-weekly Louisville Eccentric Observer (LEO), will take the reins of The City Paper’s web and print products beginning Jan. 11.

By: Funditto on 12/1/09 at 2:46

I'm gonna pull a D7 here and remind you that you wrote a LITTLE letter...

By: gdiafante on 12/1/09 at 3:10

That's just because in this economy, who can afford an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper??

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/1/09 at 3:13

g, i bet that's Bush's fault.

By: house_of_pain on 12/1/09 at 3:29

But what are we gonna do to get TSU mentioned in the paper?
I'll bet we could get them some coverage if we were to involve the May family somehow...

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/1/09 at 3:30

or if the TSU campus wants to move to the Fairgrounds...

By: Funditto on 12/1/09 at 3:32

Put Ming Wang on it. He'll find a way.

By: house_of_pain on 12/1/09 at 3:32

If only we could convince Taylor Swift to attend TSU...

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/1/09 at 3:35

By: Funditto on 12/1/09 at 2:32

LOL - got that right! Or Adam Dread.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/1/09 at 3:36

I know, I know. Let's have BOTH Kanye and Taylor Swift attend a TSU game!

By: MamaG on 12/1/09 at 3:41

I wonder if Ming Wang likes Wing?

I'm going to write a LTE this week...I'll let you know if it gets printed. You guys can bash it all you want, too, I don't mind! Maybe I'll write a love letter about a celebrity, ala Tony Zizza and his love for Taylor Swift. Or maybe I'll tout the wonderful letters we already have and praise Paul D'Argent for his daily LTE's that he thinks we are all jealous of. LOL

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/1/09 at 3:42

MamaG, which celebrity will you write about?

By: Funditto on 12/1/09 at 3:48

apparently this stephen george is also a rocker according to my louisville peeps. good for ncp - good for him! hope it all works out!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/1/09 at 3:55

hmm, he's a bit of a hotty too.

By: MamaG on 12/1/09 at 3:57

I'm not sure blanket. I'll have to do some deep thinking. Hey! Maybe about Jack Handey and his deep thoughts? Or maybe Jack Hanna and his deep woods filming? I just don't know...suggestions are welcomed!

By: Funditto on 12/1/09 at 2:48

I hope so, too, fun! I just hope we don't get censored here or banned, as has happened in the past.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/1/09 at 3:58

MamaG, write about Wing!

By: MamaG on 12/1/09 at 4:03

Blanket, I might but, I don't know if I can convey the feelings I have for her soulful screech, er, sounds. I'll play around with some stuff tonight and see what happens.

Now, as for this Stephen George, he is kinda cute! A little on the skinny side for me but, cute nonetheless!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/1/09 at 4:05

Well, you could put a twist on it. Maybe you should propose an investigation to see if her tapes were used for torture in Gitmo.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/1/09 at 4:06

And then see if she would be considered a patriot or a home grown terrorist.

By: gdiafante on 12/1/09 at 4:11

I would suggest discussing Kinematics and how it relates to Vince Young's performance on Sunday.

By: MamaG on 12/1/09 at 4:13

Big LOL's blanket! She could certainly scare the bejeebers out of a person! If I were being tortured with her tapes, I think I would have to give it up!

By: MamaG on 12/1/09 at 4:15

G, that would have to come from you and only you! I didn't see the game so I couldn't comment properly.

By: gdiafante on 12/1/09 at 4:18

I didn't see it either. Maybe House would be the best for that LTE...

By: MamaG on 12/1/09 at 4:23

I thought you would catch that, as if I had watched the game I would even know what Kinematics was or how to properly comment on it! LOL

And yes, agreed--any LTE's on the Titans should definitely come from House!

By: MamaG on 12/1/09 at 4:23

Have a great evening everyone! Until tomorrow...

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/1/09 at 4:26

see ya, Mama

By: house_of_pain on 12/1/09 at 4:48

Oh, the stories I could tell about the Oilers/Titans...
I'd be the only one interested to hear them, though.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/1/09 at 5:00

oh yeah? I bet Funditto could tell some stories about an oiled Titan. Titan rookie, that is!

By: house_of_pain on 12/1/09 at 5:10

We don't need any more Zizza-style LTEs, Blanket. ;)

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/1/09 at 5:11

yeah, one is more than enough, house!

By: house_of_pain on 12/1/09 at 5:15

You could write one about beer.
You can never say enough about beer.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/1/09 at 5:16

that wouldn't be a LTE, that would be more like an epic novel.

By: house_of_pain on 12/1/09 at 5:24

"I have watched with great interest as Titans Rookie has honed his skills, squatting and thrusting his way to physical perfection. His body glistening in the midday sun, as he climbs his way to his rightful place...on top of the world! I only wish he would get on top of..."
Fun Cougar
37OMG

By: Captain Nemo on 12/1/09 at 5:34

Fun Cougar lol

By: house_of_pain on 12/1/09 at 5:35

She's gonna get me for that.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/1/09 at 5:36

I know and I. lmao

By: Captain Nemo on 12/1/09 at 5:40

I got to start toward Clarksville before I go home. I will look to see if she gets you are not, house.

By: house_of_pain on 12/1/09 at 5:47

Roger that, Nemo. I may not be around tomorrow...

By: Funditto on 12/1/09 at 7:21

lol. to be continued.......
