Louisiana Sports: Reggie Bush Fizzles, JaMarcus Russell Owes, LSU Shines
Written by 

JaMarcus Russell
Reggie Bush rushed five times for a minus 1-yard loss for the Dolphins on Saturday night. According to the Miami Herald, "There are already questions about whether he will be able to effectively run between the tackles, but he will have little chance to improve otherwise without improvement in the blocking."...Cardinals rookie Patrick Peterson intercepted a Philip Rivers pass and returned it 34 yards for a touchdown against the Chargers on Saturday night. The former LSU All-American also returned a punt for 23 yards...


Former LSU and Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell has paid the $223,180.05 he owed the state of California for failing to pay taxes, and the lien the state had has been released. But Russell doesn't have all his financial troubles behind him. He's still behind on the payments on his $2.4 million Bay Area mansion and that home is expected to be sold in a foreclosure auction. Last year, Russell showed up for a Redskins workout weighing 286 pounds and wasn't signed. He hasn't been contacted by any team this season...

The 2011 LSU football media guide is out and it is one of the better ones in college football. Inside the 208 pages are bios on coaches and players, all Tigers records and statistics and traditions of LSU. You may buy by the guide for $25 at LSUsports.net or the LSU Sports Shop. This season's guide's cover features a Tigers game at night in Tiger Stadium. Following is the message on the cover: "It is a pantheon of concrete & steel alongside the father of waters. It is a city that rises, it is the humidity of autumn evenings that drapes stately oaks & broad magnolias. It is haunted and it is loud. It is Halloween Night & Cannon blasts. It is Louisiana gumbo of humanity that cheers its Tigers to victory & destroys the dreams of invading foes.

"Chance of rain is...never! It is the cathedral of college football  & worships here. When the sun finds its home in the western sky it is a field of glory for sure..but much more than that it is a sacred place and it's Saturday night in Death Valley."...

  • A July 4th Fact of Facts: America is Land of Immigrants
  • Poll: Trump strong on jobs, weak on tweets, viewed as reckless, thin-skinned, sexist
  • President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

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.

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.
