Best tv sports package?

My husband likes to watch Arizona sports, but we recently moved to Louisiana. Here, they always play Texas when his Arizona games are on. I was thinking about getting him some kind of sports package or something for Christmas so that his Arizona games would play on our tv. Is there a way to do this without getting satellite tv? We have Charter at the moment. Thanks!

See if Charter offers the Fox Sports Network, specifically FCS Pacific. FCS Pacific carries the the Big 12 Conference and the Pac 10 Conference, which includes Fox Sports Arizona.

I find Louisiana is. Not as hot as Flordia in the summer and very few freezing nights in the winter.?

Great hospitals, plenty of outdoor sports, no traffic and our taxes are not bad.

Louisiana is the new Florida. Haven’t been in NO in about two years, but stats show population growing by leaps and bounds. Rest of state is likely going to have a boom in the next decade.

As to reason for better weather, it is in the middle of the Gulf Stream and gets a lot of heat in the winter from that stream passing by it. In the summer, winds move moisture to north into central and southern US.

Gulf Stream heats southern US and Florida, as well as East Coast and Nova Scotia and then heats northern Europe so it is inhabitable all year round.

Not the place to be in hurricane, but that is not a deterrent to most who live or settle there. Culture is fantastic. Perfect mix of people if you like to meet and know new people. Very friendly too.

Hope the climate info helps and the personal observations didn’t hinder.

Louisiana High School Football!?

Bastrop High School is being stripped of their State Championship win! Right before Hurricane Katrina a coach from South Louisiana got hired at Bastrop High School. Well when Katrina happened the boys wanted the Coach to come and get them, so he went and got them and brought them back to Bastrop, LA where they eventually ended up deciding to stay and live. And the boys decided to play football in bastrop. Bastrop went on to win the state championship. Now a year later on the anniversery of Katrina, Bastrop is being stripped of their title b/c of ruling that the coach was not allowed to go and pick them up. I don’t see how this is fair, don’t they take into account that these folks lost EVERYTHING, does anyone else have any thoughts on this???
Here are some links to the articles:

I completely agree and I think that everyone should email the Louisiana Athletic Association and protest the ruling! I saw the story in the Los Angeles Times and I am outraged. I’d like to start a protest from California.

Sports fan that deserves to be put in the gas chamber?

Which sports fan do you believe deserves to be put in the gas chamber?

1.) Sports fan who picks #15 to beat a #2, or picks Louisiana-Monroe to beat Alabama or LSU (in football) and then once every ten or twenty years when this actually happens claims to be a genius. You sir, deserve to be strapped in the gas chamber and executed.

2.) Sports fan who is still complaining about a bad call more than a day or so after it happened. Yet, bad calls happen. They happen in every game. Your team will be the victim of bad calls and some bad calls will go your way.

I’m giving your 48 hours, max. If you’re still complaining after that, you sir, deserve to be strapped into the gas chamber and executed!!!!!

Your choices?
I tend to agree that Philly and Dallas fans should all be put in the gas chamber.
I know 15 seeds have won. But statistically their chances are very minimal, so you’re no more allowed to act like a genius for correcting picking one than you are for being dealt a good hand of poker.

I can think of a few Eagle fans that I would personally flip the switch on.

Cool “Louisiana Sports” images

A few nice Louisiana Sports images I found:

Huge Mural in Downtown Shreveport

Image by cybertoad
"Shreveport’s history and heritage can also be seen on the "Once in a "Millennium Moon" mega mural. This mural ties this area’s cultural legacy together. It is the largest public outdoor mural in the country spanning some 30,000 square feet on the 12-story AT&T building in downtown Shreveport. On the mural, the Caddo Indians, the area’s military installation Barksdale Air Force Base, and family heirlooms and community artifacts are depicted." link

"During the first two months of the Millennium Year, Meg Saligman and the staff of the Shreveport Regional Arts Council met with more than 75 organizations, interviewed hundreds of individuals about their ideas and heritage, photographed thousands of people for the mural and read every book written about this area!

Meg’s painting plan involved more than 2,600 people! She perfected a “paint by number” grid that is applied to sheets of plastic cloth. Once painted the cloth is “floated in acrylic” on the wall, much like wallpaper installation. Paint Parties were held all over Shreveport! Festival sites, parks, club meetings, art galleries, bank lobbies, and schools became home to paint sessions. The public commitment to work on the mural was awesome! More than 40% of the total mural has been painted by the community…" link
