Bearts vs Saints in Baton Rouge

Yes the crowd was sparse

The second of four games to be played in Baton Rouge, the first game attracted over 61,000 fans, the second game a mere 32,697 partly due to the teams on field performance but also due to their off the field issues with the owner Tom Benson. At least this time the game was competitive here are some pictures that I took.

S.O.S. Save Our Saints - Pregame party & Dolphins vs Saints

View all 18 photos...
A few pictures from the Save Our Saints tailgate party, a grassroots effort to help keep the New Orleans Saints where they belong New Orleans. I also took some pictures during the game where 61,000 faithful fans turned out to root for the Saints, Unfortunately they played a terrible game and gave little to cheer for, but they are still my New Orleans Saints and I'll support them to the end.

After nothing but Hurricanes, evacuations and problems to think about I finally got to enjoy something from my regular routine tonight. The Hornets, let me correct that the New Orleans Hornets that have relocated to Oaklahoma for the upcoming season were back in Louisiana last night for their first game in Baton Rouge. Tonight they played host to the Miami Heat and LSU alum Shaq. The game was awesome and it was a nice break from the new normal life I've had since the Hurricane.

Buras Trip # 3

The uncertainty with yet another Hurricane looming near the Gulf of Mexico, led us to make a third trip to Plaquemines Parish, some signs of cleanup was seen, but the destruction is still too much to handle and will take many months to clear. Water has been turned on in the Port Sulphur area and homes that were removed from their foundations were slowly having their yards filled from the bust pipes and water mains. In Buras we arrived to find our house was the first to get a Blue Roof, that is the temp roof like a blue tarp that protects the home from any future water damage, with our house being one of the only homes standing it was odd to see that blue tarp coving the roof. Even though were are very unlikely to return and rebuild there its possible the home may be made liveable to provide a place that can be rented out. The trip didn't accomplish much, we retreived some more items from the house and brought back my dad's Touch Of Grass Lawn Care trailer that had been left in Port Sulphur. I still haven't made it to the Vencie area to take pictures but I've added some more from Buras that were not documented before because my camera battery had died. Enjoy the pictures

I returned to Buras on another salvage exibition and took a number of new pictures of the destruction in lower Plaquemines Parish, not everything will be captioned because even I don't recognize what I was taking pictures of sometimes, the destruction is that bad.
