    It would be great troll fodder if Clemson wins - but agree it will be LSU by at least 2 TD.

    Im going to get to troll dafvck out of some reall hard ass fans on either side tonight who are convinced they are going to blow out the other. I hate both fan bases so it’s win - win.

    OTOH I know the Kevin Turner family (and Nolan )pretty well from my day’s taking Ms Gator to ALS meetings in Hoover . Dabo personally took care of Kevin’s financial needs ( $70k chair and computer) and gave Nolan a scholarship. There is a youtube video somewhere of Dabo calling Kevin to tell him that he was taking Nolan in. It will bring tears to your eyes.

    Cannot argue that Dabo has a big ole heart like no other. He steps out and steps up all the time. ALS is terrible.

    It's ironically called "Neck" by the LSU faithful.



    Either way, Geaux Tigers.

    There’s a reason why I generally stay away from south Louisiana. At least they have some good food.

    I don’t know. No joke. I have no hearing in my right ear and 25% in my left ear and cannot hear any high pitch sounds. The only place I can hold a conversation is in a room without background noise. I was in the army in the early 50s and one of those guys who lost his hearing running a rifle range before people wore earplugs. So I will take your word for it.

    bill - I guess you know that there are frequency adjusting hearing aids now that work miracles. If you need a direct Washington DC connection in VA to get a disability upgrade I can help you. I’m an expert now ;)

    BG how is your experience with the VA?

    I hear different things from different people. If anyone deserves some benefits from the gubbermint, it's our vets.

    Mixed feelings on my end- the one in Birmingham is a complete shithole, and I feel sorry for anyone that has to be there.

    However, from a career perspective, that place is a dream for anyone that can sell them product. And I mean anything from office equipment to floor cleaning service to surgical- you find one decision maker, and there are no hoops to ever jump through. No committees, no GPOs, not shit.

    The VA hospital says they’re broke but somehow still get whatever they want.

    I have lots of military friends and family. Many of them "make too much" for VA benefits. The ones that rely on VA seem to be hit and miss with quality.

    Makes me really scared when it comes to gubbermint health care. Imagine if all of us had VA quality healthcare mandated by the gubbermint.

    Which is why they're broke. I'm betting that they usually pay on the upper end of the spectrum for most of the things they buy.

    You'd be correct.

    Do contractors count as vets, or just soldiers and vd nurses?

    From a VA perspective if you were 1) in the military and did were not dishonorably discharged and 2) served at least one day in a war zone you qualify as a vet for VA benefits.

    Personally I despise the VA... I’ve been fortunate that I have great private insurance benefits and haven’t had to rely on them- but my brother was wounded and partially disabled in the useless Iraq war... and getting an appointment in BHam for a new condition is like applying for a mortgage. He actually prefers to go to Augusta.

    I had to climb the ladder through Richard Shelbys office and finally got a high level contact in DC who really made shit happen.

    My Dad and F-I-L were WWII vets and seemed to get faster and better options. But there is definitely a difference in treatment for those who served in the political wars.

    Thanks a lot. I have another disability from the Army but never applied because I guess I was stupid or too proud or something. I was running a night company in attack problem (I was a 1st LT and Company Commander of an Infantry company) and jumped out my Jeep real fast picking up my carbine as I went. I took about one step moving fast and tripped over a commo wire. Like an idiot I stuck my arm out with the carbine in it. I hit the ground and rolled my right arm clean out of joint. Boy, you talk about terrific pain.

    Anyway I lost over 50% of the mobility of my right arm because anytime I rotate it like throwing a ball it will likely come out again. It has 3 times. Talk about a bad hurt. So I learned to be careful.

    I never had it repaired because my dislocation was pretty bad and there was about a 6 month or longer very painful rehab at the time. I understand it is a lot easier now.

    I never ask for disability really because I could not figure anyway it would prevent a Petroleum Engineer from earning a full salary. I think I should have lied.

    The only thing I was afraid of was falling overboard in deep water and drowning because I could not swim the crawl anymore, so I don’t go on cruises
