Agent Pendergast -Can you imagine the actor to play him?

Dr. Aloysius X. L. Pendergast is a fictional character appearing in novels by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.

In the novels, Pendergast is a special agent with the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). He is a favorite among fans for his unique personality, appreciation of culture and his almost supernatural competence. He works out of the New Orleans, Louisiana branch of the FBI, but frequently travels out of state to investigate cases which interest him, namely those appearing to be the work of serial killers.

Holy cow, I love Pendergast. I’ve been reading those books for years. If I had to choose an actor to play him, Crispin Glover. If he dyed his hair. He’s tall and pale and intense, and a little creepy, like Pendergast. But I have a feeling no one would be able to live up to the readers’ expectations.

Whatever happened to LSU assistant football coachTravelle Gaines? Is LSU currently paying their players?

Last year, LSU assistant strength coach, Travelle Gaines has been accused of violating Louisiana state agent regulations by inviting student-athletes to his home to meet a sports agent and suggesting the agent should represent the athletes.

What is NCAA doing about this? Did LSU paid NCAA to ignore this case?

Fight On!!!

Root for USC

USC is the best team ever!!

Show me a source. Getting awful nervous about LSU staying in the hunt for the Championship, which USC is out of now.

Why do people adress (1)Louisiana State University…?

like Geux Tigers or something.
I don’t get it because I saw that about geaux Tigers on sports center.

It is a word play on the Cajun community. It is not French for go.

What is creole cake and is it delicious?

I have a recipe in a cook book of mine for creole cake, and I want to make it for a tennis banquet but I don’t know what it is….

I understand "creole" in cookery means something like Louisiana spices, but there aren’t any spices in the recipe.

Any ideas?

Maybe they are referring to the Kings cake which is a part of their Mardi Gras celebration. The Kings cake is a type of coffee cake and they aren’t always made the same.
