Louisiana Sports: JaMarcus Russell, LSU, Georgia, Peyton Manning
Written by 

jamarrcusJaMarcus Russell could be coming back. According to the Lake Charles American Press, "rumors are swirling columnist Jeff Schultz writes that Georgia's winning streak ends on Saturday. From Sch" that the first pick in the 2007 draft could be joining the Louisiana Swashbucklers of the Professional Football League. Per the report, Swashbucklers media relations director Duane Bergeron said the organization "would not confirm or deny any contact with Russell or his agent." Likewise, team GM and president Chris Meaux said in a statement released to the American Press, "We are not prepared at this time to comment on any player contract negotiations." Though it seems like he's been gone for a long time, Russell last played for the Raiders on Jan. 3, 2010. He has 4,083 passing yards in 25 career starts. If the 26-year-old Russell returns to football in any capacity, it's surely a sign that he'd like to return to the NFL And, if he finally realizes that, he needs at least to try...

The doctor who performed the surgery on Peyton Manning's neck said the fusion has achieved "firm fixation," a positive sign in the Colts quarterback's recovery. Manning underwent a spinal fusion procedure in September to repair a damaged nerve -- his third and most complex -- neck surgery in 19 months. The doctor said Manning could increase his workouts, but can't practice yet...ultz: "Georgia has only one advantage in this game"Aaron Murray. Expectations for the running game are low, unless Crowell suddenly emerges from bubble wrap this week and breaks from the field with Forrest Kump legs. LSU is equal to or better than Georgia everywhere else. The Tigers have won over ranked teams, won on the road, won in Tuscaloosa, won nine games by 46, 26, 28, 30, 31, 35, 33, 49 and 24. Also, they conquered Belarus and  are moving into Poland. Yes, I really believe the Dogs have a chance to win this game. They are playing that well and confident. The problem is too many things need to happen. Something-to-zero in turnovers.  Something big on special teams. Something bionic on the defensive front. It's too much. The 10-game winning steak ends here. LSU wins, but Georgia keeps it close. I'll dance with 13 1/2"...

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.
