Let's get the Politically Correct BS out the way...
Let me stress the need to keep things civil, or this thread will soon go the way of other good intentions. I advise everyone to read all the rules. Particularly the ones involving profanity and treating each other with respect.
What's a Perpetually Open Thread? I'll tell you! This is a thread dedicated to all off topic conversations. If there's something that you want to talk about that isn't really relevant to Saints football, can be discussed here. Think about this as a bar/hangout place for people who just want to have some fun with other Saints/football fans.
The whole reason for this thread is to help bring people together and help them get to know other fans on a more personal basis. If this turns out to be a popular activity, we hope to continue this concept as long as possible. However, there are some rules/constraints we have to put on some conversations in order to make sure everyone has an enjoyable experience.
- The other SBN and CSC rules still apply. No racist, sexist, or personal attacks on anyone. It's vulgar in other venues, it's still vulgar here.
- As well, no politics or religion talk. Nothing good can come from it.
- If you think something is Not Safe For Work, don't post it, link it instead.
- Just because this is an Off-Topic thread, does not mean football talk is off limits! Just remember, keep arguments rational, and don't get personal. If you feel things are getting too heated, step away and take a breath.
- No trolling. We don't want it, no need for it.
- On that same vein as the previous rule, you may see some inside jokes. Don't assume you know what's what, make sure to find out what's going on before getting upset.
- Please rec this thread to make sure this thread stays up until we are ready to dispose of it.
- No swearing

First though, I did not hack his Facebook Page, here is Dave's Picture from Cancun...
That's my one and only gripe to get things started...Fanshots of which I posted this Picture on no longer seem to get any response, with SBNation's new format. Yes I know it's the offseason, and not as many fans comment, but still, no play to speak of.
My friend BewareofDog wants some recipes so, I'll lead with this one...
Now I gave you my Lima bean recipe on that OT thread that wasn't, so I'll tell you what to do with the rest of the sliced hog jowl bacon...sorry Legatron, no I'm not...
Take One mid sized cabbage...if you like stuffed cabbage leaves get a large, and steam the outer leaves off for rolling...I know you want that recipe too.
Anyway back to the smothered cabbage recipe...
Take your half package of jowl bacon and brown in a decent sized pot.
Take the cabbage and the trick to removing the core is slam it down on the counter top and pull it out.
I'll eat the core with some salt and black pepper, cause I roll that way.
Cut up your cabbage in qtrs, then qtr them, and put in the pot of bacon grease. I leave the bacon in too. don't worry, it looks like a lot of cabbage, but it will cook down. sorta fry the cabbage in the grease then add oh, a cup of water. Throw at least 2 table spoons of salt in, the bacon grease will give it a sweet flavor and this will counter it. Season to your taste with Black pepper. A good teaspoon, at least. Cover and cook down. Doesn't get any easier. Time, you want to know the time it takes, hell I don't know man, I just cook it till it's done. Never timed it.Cook it till all the cabbage is cooked to your desired tenderness. Add water as needed but don't over do it, the bacon and heat will do most of the work.
Here's a helpful image for those who can't remember their measurements...
So y'all get after it. Talk trash, Talk Saints, Take this thread and Hi-jack the S*** out of it, you have my permission.
