Odell "Wreck'em" Beckham Sr. breaks down LSU - Alabama 

In this Fox 8 video, former LSU football player Odell Beckham Sr. discusses the upcoming mega-game between the LSU Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide. His son, Beckham Jr., plays wide receiver for the number one rated Tigers, and is a true highlight-machine. (And will be for years to come.) Last year he was catching passes at Newman High. [Video removed because of its annoying autoplay function.] Odell Sr. is the world's biggest LSU fan, in case you were wondering. Tragically, though, he's also a fan of the Dallas Cowboys. I'm hopeful Odell's talented son will develop more sense than his old man.

Drilling is not boring 

Anne Rolfes of the Louisiana Bucket Brigades wrote an opinion column for The Lens concerning oversight of the oil industry. Take a look.

Then there's, um, this Statoil music video celebrating oil exploration, which came to my attention this afternoon. It's titled "Black Gold Hunters" and must be seen to be believed, however I'm not recommending that you do so.
