AT&T Building Mural – Side 1

A few nice Louisiana Sports images I found:

AT&T Building Mural – Side 1


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

What do you think about people from Louisiana?

I’m from Louisiana and I don’t care what you say.

Btw I scored in the top 50 on four of the international tests for math, history, and science. So we aren’t really stupid.
We have the most athletic state by stats for nba and nfl and a lot of other sports.
We are way pretty and we do not really have a southern accent. That is a Mississippi and Alabama thing. We have New Orleans or a southern or no accent at all.
Louisiana has the prettiest scenery if thats what you are looking for.
I eat fried alligator and shrimp and crawfish all the time when they are in season but not like you think if you arent from there.
LSU is better than your college.
LOUISIANA IS AMAZING!!!! WHAT DO YOU THINK????

Great food & music!!!

Are Professional Sports Fixed?

The first time that realized that the NFL was shady was the Monday Night Miracle when a confident Arnold Schwarzenegger at half-time stated that the New York Jets would come from behind and defeat the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins were dominating the Jets 23-7 at that time. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Monday_Night_Miracle_(American_football)

Since then America has been dealt with some severe tragedies, the 911 terror attacks and Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. In both events our government received a black eye in a lot of the public view. In 2001 during the time of America in turmoil the New England Patriots went from being a 5-11 (2000 Standings.) to becoming America’s team echoing the patriotism of a nation and winning Super Bowl XXXVI (2002) , Super Bowl XXXVIII (2004) and Super Bowl XXXIX (2005).

I found it odd that 3 of the 4 states directly associated with 911 have all won Super Bowls since then. The flights originated at Logan International Airport in Boston, Massachusetts with aircrafts crashing in Washington, D.C., New York City and near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

N.Y. Giants – Super Bowl XLII (2008)
Pittsburgh Steelers – Super Bowl XL (2006) and Super Bowl XLIII (2009).

Now lets turn our attention to the New Orleans Saints. In August 2005 New Orleans was struck by Hurricane Katrina and that year the Saints finished 3-13 the following year they go 10-6 and advancing to their franchise’s first conference championship. Today New Orleans is still trying to rebuild and the Saints are the pride of their city, will they they be dubbed Super Bowl XLIV champions.
Games can be fixed by play calls and officiating, it’s about X’s and O’s. Every player on the field has a assignment, when we think that player missed his responsibility or blew his coverage can we really assess that.

Other Sports in which these states have prevailed:

Massachusetts
Boston Celtics NBA 2008
Boston Red Sox MLB 2004, 2007

New York
Yankees MLB 2009

Pennsylvania
Pittsburgh Penguins NHL 2009
Philadelphia Phillies MLB 2008

Louisiana
LSU NCAA 2007
Saints NFL ?

The Saints win over the Vikings was the shadiest thing I’ve seen in a while. The drive before regulation by the Vikings, they’re going through the Saints like nothing and then run two running plays where the backs run into the line and fall down, then the interception by Favre. Then in overtime, the respotting of the ball etc. every break in the book, please! Here’s something even more apparent. The Celtics during the Larry Bird era never committed more fouls in a playoff series than their opponents, whether they won or lost the series! The odds of that happening are virtually mathematically impossible. Yes sports are fixed.

Anyone hear about the young women in Louisiana: mauled to death by her 2 pet Pitt bulls?!?

I suppose ya’ll are going to say they were’nt trained right or the owners were somehow at fault…These were raised from pup’s, slept with them and lived in the house! Why don’t we just permit people to own Tigers & Lions that are well trained? There is no difference! Louisiana KNOWS it’s a SPORT DOG…bred for fighting…but they are just turning their heads to the TRUTH!!! That’s why we’re considered substandard amongst other states. I’m sick of having my animals killed by these dogs; who’s owners allow to ravage the neighborhood by night. I’m sick of Animal Control saying "If you did’nt witness it there’s nothing we can do" when I’ve got 2 cats 30′ up a tree with 2 pitts under them and 1 dead still warm on the ground!!! Now, that’s just plain WRONG!!! What happened to "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"? Oh, did ya’ hear about the baby who had it’s foot eaten off by the "PET" Pittbull?….again here in Louisiana. Hey, I got it! All you Pittbull lovers move over here!

I used to work for a vet. I’ve been around lots and lots of dogs and their owners. Over and over, the owners of dogs I considered extremely dangerous were completely blind to or chose to be ignorant of the potential danger of their "pet". Once a tragedy happens it is too late. Purebred dogs are the product of generations of selective breeding for various traits. For example, every Border Collie I’ve been around instinctively wants/needs to herd, and will herd anything available, including small children. It is so much a part of their nature I believe it cannot be trained out of them. Pitts are bred to be aggressive tenacious fighters. I have never heard of anyone being mauled by a Golden Retriever. However, Pitts are on the news regularly for injuring and killing people. It is bred into them and anyone who owns one should face severe penalties for injury caused by them.

Felony theft in Louisiana?

What could someone expect as an outcome from an original felony theft charge in the amount of 1000 from a sporting goods store? Also having a marijuana felony conviction thats over 10 years old?
It states that the original charge carries up to 10yrs
Is a reduced sentence to a misdemeanor with some kind of fine and or probation likely?

Louisiana Theft Laws
Theft of crawfish; penalty. RS 14:67.6. Theft of utility service; inference of commission … draw poker devices by persons under the age of twenty-one; penalty …

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.
