New Orleans Saints Brees, Evans, Nicks On NFC Pro Bowl Squad
Written by 

Ed Staton, Louisiana SportsThree members of the Saints have been named to the NFC Pro Bowl squad.

Quarterback Drew Brees, guards Jahri Evans and Carl Nicks were voted by a combination of fans, players and coaches balloting. The Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, Jan. 30 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. Teams that earn a berth in the Super Bowl will not send players to the Pro Bowl.


Brees has been selected to appear in his fifth Pro Bowl, his fourth as a Saint. The only Saints quarterback to be selected to the all-star game more than twice. Brees is the eighth player in franchise history to be selected at least four times.

Evans has been named to the squad for the second consecutive season and was selected as a starter. He is the only guard in franchise history to be named to the all-star game twice.

Nicks is a three-year veteran and has combined with Evans for one of the NFL's top interior combinations.

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.
