Saints to host Patriots today

in

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Brady, Brees and Bono. How’s that for a middle-aged power trio?
When New England quarterback Tom Brady and his prolific New Orleans counterpart, Drew Brees, take the Superdome field today, it’ll be just days after U2’s concert. Seems fitting, given the association the Irish rockers had with key moments for both franchises in that stadium.
U2 played when the renovated Superdome reopened a year after Hurricane Katrina for the Saints’ triumphant 2006 home opener. They also played halftime of Brady and the Patriots’ maiden Super Bowl victory in the Big Easy in 2002.

Ruston endured a tough start to the second half in a tight game Friday night as the Bearcats roared past Airline 36-18 at L.J. “Hoss” Garrett Stadium.
The game was knotted up 15-15 at halftime and the Vikings pulled a play out of the New Orleans Saints’ Super Bowl playbook as they opened the third quarter with an onsides kick and then drove all the way to the Ruston eight-yard line before the Bearcats held tough, forcing Airline to use a 25-yard field goal by Jackson Tinkins to pull back out in front 18-15.

in
Bleich, Joe C.jpg

This is not about a person but a hurricane. This named storm, after a bizarre, meandering path, looks as if it’s headed, for the moment, away from producing major damage.

More storms may develop. We certainly don’t want these; we cannot afford these.

That didn’t happen this summer, but because of it we’re now facing a different kind of flood that I remember used to having to endure on a annual basis in the Piney Hills.
