BCS Championship Crowds


















The BCS game that LSU won tonight was a big event for the tourism industry in New Orleans. We caught this traffic jam of horse and buggies on St. Ann Street in the French Quarter on Sunday. The crowds were wall-to-wall on Bourbon Street and even some of the side streets. The party atmosphere was everywhere. We didn't make it down after the game, but I'm sure the merriment was even more massive.

Grandson Aullivan picks out his own Christmas presents for all the family. Each has a perfect story for the person he gives it to. This year, Papa got the perfect present.

Well, Steve, a whole bunch of Buckeyes dropped a lot of loot on your city and came away broke. They lost the big one as you know. I got so disgusted I went to bed at 9:30 p.m. when LSU was ahead 14 to 10.
