if you're not interested in the ongoing tire fire which calls itself the San Francisco 49ers, why click on the topic? If you are interested, do click. Why chastize the OP, his observations were not inflammatory? Let the mods moderate.

make this all about you.
|1 week 6 days ago||You're not old.||
I remember our whole school gathering in the auditorium to watch Alan Shepard's suborbital flight back in '61. I'm old.

Oops, MJ's suspension belongs with conspiracy theories (above).

I had a great*3 grandfather in the 56th Pennsylvania Volunteers who fought next to the Iron Brigade on the first day then spent the next two days on Culp's Hill. The personal connection is a very powerful reminder of the sacrifices those men and women made, and the ongoing service of those who fight our battles.
As to stops on your tour, I'd recommend:
Vicksburg, fantastic park and recently regroomed for 150th anniversary in '13.
Shiloh, eeriely quiet and misty when I was there.
Lookout Mtn and Chickamauga are excellent as well; Missionary Ridge pretty much taken over by housing.
I need to get to Virginia and Georgia one of the days. Maybe if I win the lottery ...

that same Hoke fellow had some success at San Diego St.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Well,||
we had to watch shows when they were broadcast, or wait months for the rerun.
VCRs, DVRs and on-demand streaming had not yet been invented. Nor had the plethora of cable stations distrubuted by satellite feed.
Needless to say, networks were quite profitable.

She was a former WCBN weather girl, fergawdsakes!

Are you the poster named Trey Leigh at fanbuzz, or did you find his post there so enlightened you felt the need to share it here?
|6 weeks 3 days ago||+1 to you||
< preemptive >
Joking aside, I share your view.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Satire!||
The Onion is satire.
In related news, Jonathan Swift didn't really want to solve hunger and overpopulation in 18th century Ireland with cannibalism.

I've always relied on brute force methods.
"Don't over think it", I say. But then, I don't have large complex regions to clear.

But Lynch has fumbled in the past, so it's
"Lynch *usually* beats paper".
|8 weeks 2 days ago||You like Steve Schilling, don't you?||
I know I do.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||"Start a conversation?"||
Like there's a faction that's in favor of fatal accidents involving children?
GTFO, Nationwide, and take your humming, pizza-selling Heisman runnner-up with you.
