Ed Staton-Louisiana SportsSummary: Brett Favre staying busy with Cam Newton? New Orleans Zephyrs's evening at World War II's Door Canteen; Oklahoma and LSU in BCS in New Orleans?

Brett Favre is staying busy in retirement.  Word is Favre is working for his agent, Bus Cook. Favre is believed to have to have attended Cook's meeting with former Auburn quarterback Cam Newton and members of Newton's family. Cook, who has represented Favre for years, is one of several finalists to represent Newton on the NFL level. There's nothing wrong with Favre being involved in the sales pitch to Newton, now that the Heisman Trophy winner has left school and applied for the draft. And it's not the first time a current or former player has helped his agent secure a new client. It's unusual for the player to actually attend meetings with the prospective client...

The NFL draft eligibility has been released today and Newton is on the list as well as Louisiana State’s Stevan Ridley and Patrick Peterson.

Zephyrs

"Evening with the Zephyrs" on Thursday from 7-p p.m. at World War II's Stage Door Canteen. Former Z's general manager Jay Miller will be honored as the first person inducted into the New Orleans Professional Baseball Hall of Fame. Z's manager Greg Norton and Marlins director fo player development Brian Chattion will attend as well as former Z's/current Dodger John Lindsey, Dodger Xavier Paul, Cub Thomas Diamond, Cardinal Mark Hamilton, Astro Roy Corcoran and former Z's Kirk Bullinger, Ed Yarnall and Jake Gautreau...
 

Okie and LSU?
The Crimson and Cream Machine, an Oklahoma website, write that another LSU-Oklahoma game could be for the BCS championship in New Orleans. Writes the website: "The Superdome  has always boded well for the Tigers. They are 2-0 when playing for the national title in the venue and would be a heavy favorite to win it again, assuming they make it that far. I don't know if it's the culture or just the fact that everyone in the state of Louisiana is a Tigers fan that makes it so tough to play there for other teams. If LSU can escape the SEC unscathed or with a single loss, it is very likely they wail see the PAC-10 or Big XII champion in the Superdome. If this deep Oklahoma team can run the table, it will be highly likely that they see the SEC or Pac-10 champs in the national championship game."...
