“I probably don’t do the game as a male would do it, I bring a woman’s perspective. I like to get a little sassy.” Mary SONNIER, retired chef
Game day preparations tend to be regular and ritualized for football fans as well as for players. But before the high-stakes tilt against the Carolina Panthers tomorrow, Saints fan Mary Sonnier has something new to check off her list: grab the cell phone charger.
A prolific Twitter user under normal circumstances, Sonnier will be tweeting up storm leading up to and during the big game, and she’ll be doing so on behalf of NBC Sports.
The question of exactly where a shot and bleeding Henry Glover collapsed on an Algiers street took center stage Friday in the civil-rights retrial of former New Orleans police officer David Warren.
With the defense calling its first witnesses, Warren’s attorneys sought to undermine the testimony of retired officer Linda Howard, a veteran cop who was with Warren at a strip mall on Sept. 2, 2005. She is the only witness who claims to have seen Warren shoot Glover.

Emblazoned with the names of New Orleans neighborhoods and made of colorful cloth, the pot holders do more than their fair share to help create the cheerful atmosphere at the event.
Rock stars are in short supply these days. Admittedly, living life on the grand scale of a Mick Jagger or Keith Richards in their heyday is hard work, but epic self-indulgence give music its mythic scope. Thankfully, Kanye West seems ready, willing and able to be larger than life.

The time is rapidly ticking away until bowl bids are announced Sunday night, but for the LSU Tigers the variables and possibilities seem to keep expanding rather than becoming more defined.
Who’s running this show, The Riddler?
After wrapping up the regular season with a victory over Arkansas on Nov. 29, LSU seemed a virtual lock for the Cotton Bowl.
Not so fast, cowboy. The Cotton remains a distinct possibility for the 9-3 Tigers, but no longer more likely than a trip to the Outback Bowl.
““Being able to play your rival from your town, with a chance to go to the Superdome adds something to it and makes this one a little bit more special.” Emanuel Powell, Landry-Walker coach
