Written by 

edwards-trinaNow that the Louisiana legislative session is over, if you are still looking for the next political brawl, you need not look any further. 

The June 2015 lineup is complete.    The main draw punching it out will be Edwards vs. Edwards.  The big question is whether they are Mann enough or if either will crawfish out of the bout?

 

Ok, enough of the nonesense.

This wild event will be held at magnificent The Eiffel Society, our usual location, on St. Charles Avenue.
