Today is the 3rd anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. That event has dominated the lives of everyone in southeastern Louisiana and southern Mississippi for 3 years. It's been a very tough three years for most.
Encouraged by Deuce McAllister's running last night. He looks like he's fully recovered from knee surgery. Anxious to see what the Saints offense will do when they put all of their starters on the field. Jeremy Shockey did not play a down in preseason. Marques Colston only played sparingly. Deuce and Reggie Bush were never on the field at the same time. The Bucs, with Jeff Garcia and Joey Galloway, are up next.
It seems obvious to me that they should just swap the games next Sunday if the need arises because of Gustav. Play the September 7 game in Tampa and the November 30 game in New Orleans. A repeat of the 2005 season would be a disaster for the team and the city. No home games outside of New Orleans, except that one in London in a couple of months.
6 days until football season ...
Quote of the Day
But let's hope for the best.
A good week of practice in Indy.
A quick recovery from Gustav.
A big win over the Bucs.
With David coming up with a game-winning interception.
