New Orleans Saints: Superdome Renovation, Drew Brees, Reggie Bush
Written by 

Drew BreesOn Tuesday, May 31, the New Orleans Saints administrative staff received a tour and sneak peek of the club's home, the Louisiana Superdome, as an $85 million enhancement and renovation project starts to reach its conclusion by the end of June and in time for the 2011 season.

Some Drew Brees fans are concerned about his stance on the NFL lockout  having some  level of blackballing by owners down the road? Answers SI.com's Peter King: "If the comments were made by Chase Daniel, I would say the comments might have some bearing on his future employment, But players aren't going to be affected by what they say now, unless they're marginal. And Drew Brees is not marginal." Brees is second choice behind NBC analyst Cris Collingsworth to guest write King's SI.com column while he's on vacation. Sean Payton wrote the column a couple of years ago.

SOME hither, others yon: Reggie Bush has a little experience in front of TV reality show camera. This time the focus won't be on his love, but his name. Bush will appear on the CBS reality show called "Same Name," which features celebrities switching places with people who have the same names.. The "other" Reggie is a construction worker in Danville, Ill. The show makes its debut in July. At least Reggie is keeping busy right now...

Saints rookie Mark Ingram hopes to make an early impact with the Saints: "I've been meeting with Drew (Brees) and a couple of guys, just learning the system and getting familiar with things. I'm really just trying to get accustomed to them and just getting used to everything going on."...

Former LSU running back Kevin Faulk, now with the Patriots, on his recovery from a torn ACL: "It's an injury that happened a while ago; That's why they have technology and doctors and things. Nobody's ready right now. That's why everybody is just trying to get back into it."...

...Parting thought: A good rooster crows in any hen house.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
