hpim0615.jpgAre you ready for some FOOTBALL? For the first time in recent memory, if ever, the Saints and Tigers took the field at exactly the same time, and delighted the faithful with a pair of shutouts. The Tigers creamed the Mississippi State Bulldogs 45-0, while the Saints, still in preseason mode, blanked the Miami Dolphins 7-0.

With multiple weeknight gridiron options available, at least one New Orleans family divided into split squads, with Mom and the triplets watching the LSU game and Dad and the little girl going to the Superdome. The trips fell asleep at halftime, and the little girl was traumatized after stepping in nacho cheese up to her ankle. Fortunately, the girl and sandal are now doing fine.
