Where are the Tigers?

I can't help but notice that since you have been in existence there has been little to no coverage on the Tennessee State University Tigers.

I just feel like we are underappreciated, undervalued and marginalized, and it is really a shame.

You may be right Terry . Sorry about that.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/1/09 at 4:12

Good morning.

I don't think that it is just the City Paper that under vaules TSU Tigers. I have noticed that even when TSU the only team in the state that is winning, they get second page coverage.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/1/09 at 4:43

dargent I hope everything is abby normal for you today.

By: dargent7 on 12/1/09 at 6:32

Nemo: I hope you're right.
Don't be offended, but I uninstalled your "Nemo's Spell Check for Dummies" program. I was getting too much corrective mail.

By: dargent7 on 12/1/09 at 6:34

I agree w/ the LTE. I'm a little peeved that TCP doesn't cover the Detroit Lions either.

By: Loner on 12/1/09 at 6:35

Good morning, Nashville!

Terry Holcomb's LTE is a short, two sentence blurb about sports coverage. We have seen deeper missives, but few more brief and single-minded.

Since the LTE is so shallow, I'll schlep one of Dargent7's posts from yesterday afternoon. Dargent7 wrote: "What I'm talking about is that you and "Loner" spend half your time correcting other poster's English, vernacular, and verb transits...like anyone here give's a sh**t or cares. Whay (sic) not just address the content, drop the anal-retentive, and give it up?
You can get your brilliant thoughts across by either writing a LTE yourselves, or posting based on content."

This personal attack came when I was on the road and unable to respond. As I have said before, my LTE submissions seldom make the cut at the NCP. Perhaps Paul is right, nobody in Nashville gives a sh*t about what I think.

Take it away Darge, it's all yours.

By: dargent7 on 12/1/09 at 7:00

Loner: I was in a bad mood yesterday. After Thanksgiving w/ the inlaws, I'm mentally unstable. I personally care about what you post and do read each one.
gdia is arrogant and smarter than I, because he says so.
You do have a habit of correcting my English papers, like a Mother Superior. It's OK.
My GM/Saturn peice is in the Tenneesean today, unedited, so I'll have a "woodie" until noon. Over, and out.

By: Funditto on 12/1/09 at 7:50

Loner: You can't leave us. You're the only other Northerner here edumakitin' us dumb hillbillies :-)

By: house_of_pain on 12/1/09 at 7:54

Fun, I thought that's what TSU was doing...

By: gdiafante on 12/1/09 at 8:03

Leave me out of your delusions, darge. Just remember that if you're going to correct someone's spelling, make sure you know how to spell.

That's not arrogance, it's irony.

By: Kosh III on 12/1/09 at 8:23

It's not just in sports that TSU gets under-reported; it's everything.

By: dargent7 on 12/1/09 at 8:35

gdia: No delusions here. Are you going to pull a "Sid" and deny what you wrote? Now, that's delusional. Go pick on "Chief", if he surfaces today.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/1/09 at 8:37

Well this really get me tee-off. I am so agury ta my spel check jok is wa of now.

OK I got that out of my system.

By: gdiafante on 12/1/09 at 8:39

Here's the facts: you corrected Mama's spelling of "Abbey" road with a misspelled word. I corrected it using your own words...as in an ironic joke. You didn't get it and start yapping about intelligence. I do apologize for getting your panties in a wad.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/1/09 at 8:43

All right you two. Time out!!!!

By: gdiafante on 12/1/09 at 8:46

lol

By: Captain Nemo on 12/1/09 at 8:48

Now lets talk about the important this in life.

Chelsea Clinton is engaged.

This news should bring id out of the cracks in the floor.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/1/09 at 8:50

Pay back is sweet, gdia. lol

By: gdiafante on 12/1/09 at 8:50

Or...the President is speaking tonight...the question is, will Chief and Dragon be able to handle it? Maybe they should have a defibrillator onhand...

By: dargent7 on 12/1/09 at 8:51

gdia: I got "it" alright. But, you seem to think all that electrical current running thru your cranium is above the standard and somehow relevant to this rag. TCP is a hybrid between a High School newspaper and 2 steps below a College level.
And the "posts" here deal more with pigs knuckles on sale at Kroger than anything else topical in today's print.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/1/09 at 8:53

They defibber every day, gdia.

By: house_of_pain on 12/1/09 at 8:55

It's also World AIDS Day...but I refuse to wear the ribbon...

By: Captain Nemo on 12/1/09 at 8:56

My knuckles take offence. :-+

By: gdiafante on 12/1/09 at 8:56

Pot, Kettle. Kettle, Pot.

The NCP is what it is, why do certain peoople seem intent on reinventing it as some sacred political website? lol

By: gdiafante on 12/1/09 at 9:00

I remember Aids...my mom used to used them to lose weight...I thought they were chocolate candy once....ONCE.

Oh, you mean the disease...

By: house_of_pain on 12/1/09 at 9:02

Did anyone notice that TSU is mentioned in the sports section?
Just sayin'...

By: Captain Nemo on 12/1/09 at 9:03

I bet you would look good with a ribbon, house.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/1/09 at 9:13

Maurice Clemmons was killed this morning, by police in Seattle.

By: house_of_pain on 12/1/09 at 9:23

Thanks for that info, Nemo. Glad they got the sorry s.o.b.

By: dargent7 on 12/1/09 at 9:28

Ex-Governor Huckabee will go down for this one. Like Willie Horton sunk Dukakus.

By: Dragon on 12/1/09 at 9:49

It will hurt Huckabee but not as much. Huckabee merely commuted the sentence from over 100 years down to 47 years. Liberals will agree that over 100 years for a 16 year old is excessive.

Shot dead - sure will save money on trials and appeals.

By: MamaG on 12/1/09 at 9:55

Well, I also have to put my 2 cents in and say to darge, my name is MAMAG, not MAMMAG. Get it? Got it? Good.

Now, good morning everyone!

By: gdiafante on 12/1/09 at 9:56

G'morning Mama!

By: dargent7 on 12/1/09 at 10:00

I don't give a rat's behind's hair what your screen name is. Or isn't.

By: MamaG on 12/1/09 at 10:04

Then you shouldn't give a rat's ass about how I spell things. Or misspell them.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/1/09 at 10:11

The lizards morning spin to save the fringe right shame.

Dargon's defibber around the facts that Willie Horton was use to scuttle Dukakus. Now he want us to believe that it want hurt Huckabee or the GOP.

Time out for you MammaG!!!!

Oh. Good morning. lol

By: MamaG on 12/1/09 at 10:14

Man what a fog this morning!

What was this deal I was hearing Bredeson talk about for the (current) convention center? Some kind of medical deal?

By: Captain Nemo on 12/1/09 at 10:14

dargent, you too. I don't want to have to call you out again.

Now I am going to go hide before he reads this.

By: dargent7 on 12/1/09 at 10:15

Mom: Are you an idiot, or just play the part on this board? The Beatles "Abbey Road" is more sacred than The King James version of The Bible. Leave it to you savants to make a big, freakin' deal out of a tiny correction I made. Have you nothing better to do? Are you that pissed off I get my LTE's in this paper?
Find another target and take the help with you.

By: MamaG on 12/1/09 at 10:17

Okay, Nemo, I'll take the time out! LOL

By: Captain Nemo on 12/1/09 at 10:18

It was in yesterdays CP, MammaG

By: gdiafante on 12/1/09 at 10:21

Mama, don't try. It's obvious that Dargent is clueless about the irony. He also has the sense of humor of a week-old corpse.

But, he does spend all day crafting eloquent LTE's for our amusement, so kudos to Darg!

Can I do a request? How about the fact that Duran Duran is neither a Duran, nor a Duran. NCP readers have the right to know...

By: MamaG on 12/1/09 at 10:24

Darge, I'm no idiot nor do I play one on this board. You are the one acting like a big ass titty cry baby about the whole thing. It was done a a joke and I'm sorry if you don't have a good sense of humor or that you may not have sense enough to understand it all.
I see you do have some sense of humor if you think I am p'd off that you get your LTE's in this paper. If I wanted a LTE of my own, I would write one. You know, it's crazy but I usually agree with your letters and I even somewhat agree with your assessment of Abbey Road. Hard to believe, I know.

Dude, just build a bridge and get over it!

By: MamaG on 12/1/09 at 10:26

Thanks, Nemo, I'll have to check the archives for that piece of info.

G, I know, it's pointless to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person.

By: Funditto on 12/1/09 at 10:30

D7 is the only person who takes this board seriously and his inability to see it makes it all the more fun for the rest of us. Keep it up, Paul. Sometimes this board is the only laugh I get all day.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/1/09 at 10:32

MammaG, gdiafante and dargent:

Remember, id, Dragon and chief are the bad guys. They hate you and America.

Now I am going to have to leave this board, so I want you three to make nice and play good.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/1/09 at 10:33

Keep them in place Funditto. ;-)

By: MamaG on 12/1/09 at 10:43

Aye, aye, Captain! Be safe!

By: sidneyames on 12/1/09 at 10:59

D7, I want to hear more about the Dan River High School Wildcats. Sure!

By: dargent7 on 12/1/09 at 6:00

D7 I am surprised that you have blamed your inappropriate and mad behavior on your "inlaws". AFter all, what was your excuse BEFORE Thanksgiving? Just kidding. Hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving and will continue to be blessed.

Yesterday I got up at 5 a.m.; drove to McKenzie, Lexington, Jackson, Memphis, Germantown, Collierville and back home. Wow! I love Tennessee; it is one beautiful state; leaves are still red and gold.

HEY, what about those O'bama gate crashers? I hope they get a movie deal. They are not guilty of any crime; no locks or windows were broken. The candidate for Prezzidente' said to Matt Lauer (before election) that "there is much sillieness in the White House regarding SECURITY".

I heard the interview. Matt looked shocked. Obama and Michele have no right to be angry; they are not serious about security or the country's security. If I was Prime Minister of India, I'd slap O'bama with a law suit for "stupid".

That whole thing was a joke. The White House Security is a joke; border security is a joke; airport security is a joke; national security is a joke. When's the Jokester O'bama gonna grow up and be a President?
