Once again, we are confronted with one of those conundrums (conundra?) of sports: Logic or Emotion? We know that emotion is quick and loud: “WHAT, ARE THEY CRAZY? HOW COULD THEY…” Emotion is your nosey neighbor’s reaction when the leaves from your magnolia tree litter his yard. Emotion is our immediate reaction to something we had never considered and immediately sounds like the dumbest idea we ever heard.

We all come across people in our lives who make an indelible impression on us. They could be classmates in high school or college, or men or women we meet at work or even those with whom we share a particular interest such as church or golf.

Fired Saints coaches don’t deserve the blame
 
My old boss, Jim Finks, had so many sayings that I spent much of my early years with him collecting them. Of the 75 or so that I wrote down, some were pithy while others were not suitable for a family newspaper, but all made perceptive points. I thought about one of those sayings a few days ago after the Saints announced that five assistant coaches were being fired.

dirty birdsEvery now and then, we all face a “Sophie’s Choice” moment, where we have to pick what to accept and what to give up.  Folks down in the Bayou State soon will have to confront a real dilemma.  It’s a decision that will cause upheaval in many families all over Louisiana.  Politics or football?

Luck is not a good draft strategy for O-linemen

After three pre-season games, it is becoming apparent that the Saints will go about as far this season as their offensive line will take them. And, judging by what we have seen so far, Sports Illustrated prediction of six wins and last place in the NFC South is becoming hauntingly possible. You only need to look at the team’s strategy of acquiring offensive linemen during the Sean Payton era to see how things have declined to this point.

Sorry that the cancellation of the Pro Football Hall of Fame game delayed your football Jones for another week. But hang in there! You can make it until Thursday when our local heroes open the 2016 preseason at New England. Although a game where the starters might go in for one series is not what Saints fans have been waiting nearly eight months for, but it IS football. Kinda sorta. And Who Dats did have the opportunity to both cheer and gnash their teeth during the Hall of Fame induction.

fielkow saints 2As the New Orleans Saints now begins its 10th year since returning back to the city after the devastations of Hurricane Katrina, there are few people who will long be remembered as a symbol of resilience, defiance and determination as one man, Arnie Fielkow.

After the 2005 hurricane, the Superdome was not usable, the team had to relocate for the upcoming season.  The owner Tom Benson, at the time, expressed interest in moving the team.

It’s hard to write about anything else in sports today after watching the Classic two-man race for the British Open championship Sunday at Royal Troon. Yes, I still call it the “British” Open because to do otherwise is elitist, snooty and downright discriminatory to all the other “opens” in golf. Forgive my propensities toward the peasantry, but I will talk more about golf later.

According to a WWL radio article, the New Orleans police are looking into some interesting and perrhaps shocking developments--the possibilities that Will Smith shot first, before he was gunned down.  Also, the shooting of the the former Saint, might have been shot from an errant bullet, coming from Smith's gun.

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
