Back In Louisiana

The home state of the World Champion New Orleans Saints.

Sleepless in Tallahassee

Tallahassee, FL – We arrived here around 9:00 eastern time tonight and went straight to Cracker Barrel for dinner/breakfast. After we ate, WDSU morning anchor Melanie Hebert challenged me to eat and swallow seven crackers in 60 seconds. I couldn’t swallow them all in time. Cheap road fun. Now I’m getting ready to go to […]

100 Miles to Tally

Gainesville, FL – We’ve been on the road today since about 12:30 eastern and are stopping in Tallahassee tonight. We’re about 100 miles away. What a game last night. I’ll try to get my thoughts down here later tonight. I’ll say this right now — it was one of the most amazing experiences of my […]

On the Road Again…

Ft. Lauderdale, FL – We just left the Convention Center here after covering Queen Latifah, Carrie Underwood and The Who at their news conferences. The Who broke into an impromptu performance and did three songs. During the Q&A, the festive mood dipped a bit when someone asked Pete Townshend about the 2003 pedophelia charges against […]

SB 44: The March to Sunday

Ft. Lauderdale, FL – What a beautiful morning here! Plenty on the to-do list today. Yesterday was a long one but we got a lot done. We left Orlando around 9 a.m. and arrived here just after 1:00 p.m. We went straight to the Convention Center to pick up our credentials, shot a bunch of […]

Colts News Conference: Manning

Peyton Manning talks about the Saints being the sentimental favorite in Super Bowl 44. Here are his comments e-mailed by the NFL: “We certainly understand that we may not be the team that everybody is cheering for in this game. We are okay with that. It is going to be two great teams playing against […]

Colts News Conference: Caldwell

Here are the news conference comments from Colts head coach Jim Caldwell, e-mailed from the NFL, addressing the differences in the Saints defense since the last time the teams played: “It’s like night and day, obviously, because of the fact that it is a totally different scheme. The structure is different. One thing about the […]

Next Stop, Ft. Lauderdale

We’re on our way to Ft. Lauderdale. 157 miles to go. I forgot how boring the drive is on the Florida Turnpike. Once we arrive, we’ll head to the convention center to check in and get our Super Bowl credentials. Then we’ll meet up with the rest of the WDSU SB 44 team at the […]

123 Miles to Orlando

Gainesville, FL – Plenty of music and storytelling here in the WDSU Envoy. Clouds look like they’re beginning to break — bright blue Florida sky behind them. Just passed a billboard for Cafe Risque. Looked like a nice family-friendly place. [Posted with iBlogger from my iPhone]

290 Miles to Orlando

Tallahassee, FL – Way down yonder on the Chattahoochee (just passed the river). Had lunch at Sonny’s BBQ and we’re now back on the road. Cloudy and dreary. [Posted with iBlogger from my iPhone]

380 Miles to Orlando

De Funiak Springs, FL – We just made our first fuel stop and had to make another stop at the Burger King down the street to find working restrooms (Who Dats, avoid the Chevron here). 270 miles down and Steve just popped Skynyrd into the CD player. [Posted with iBlogger from my iPhone]
