Louisiana Sports: New Orleans Saints, LSU Predicted To Have Good Seasons
Written by 

LouisianaIn our country, there are three football seasons: the regular campaign, spring football and waiting for the football season.

 As the season approaches, it's time to start looking at NFL and college predictions. Oddsmakers predict 11 victories for the Saints and 10.5 for LSU. 

According to the online sportsbook, Bodog.com, whose lines generally equate to most of the books in Las Vegas, over/under totals for the NFL and college football do not include playoff, bowl or conference championship games. 

Writes the website about the Saints total: "This exactly the number I had in my mind. I'm more of a pessimist than an optimist, so given age and their division. I lean to under 11." 

Here's how the sportsbook's totals for other NFL teams:

Atlanta                   13-3

Bodog.com predicts LSU wins over New Mexico State,  at Mississippi State, at West Virginia, Kentucky at Tennessee, Western Kentucky, at Ole Miss. The Tigers' game with Oregon, Auburn, at Alabama and Arkansas are rated as tossups.

The website doesn't predict any loses for the Tigers.

Bleacher Report has ranked the top 50 loudest college football stadiums. The website ranked LSU's Tiger Stadium the loudest in the land. "When your crowd registers on a seismograph, you come in at No. 1 . LSU, the other Death Valley, is the most frightening place for a team to play, especially if you are unfortunate enough to schedule a game at night. A game in Tiger Stadium is a guaranteed sellout no matter who LSU is playing that week."

Florida ranks No. 4, Tennessee No. 8 and Auburn No. 16.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
