The (future) national college football champ is in town

The Championship game from college football (BCS Bowl) is tomorrow (Monday) here in New Orleans and there is a real frenzy of excitement. The French Quarter was filled with Purple and Gold for the LSU Tiger fans and Red and White for the Ohio State Buckeyes who have come to town. This is one of the many creative floats, cars, buses and more that were cruising the streets to the excitement of the crowds. Of course, when you want to have big party in New Orleans, it has to involve a float (or 50) .

Allstate Insurance had a huge fan zone in the heart of the quarter where you could try you skills at kicking field goals and tossing touchdown passes. We tried to make it for the LSU pep rally featuring the LSU band and cheerleaders, but the crowd was overwhelming. In any case, there will be a national champion Monday night decided on the floor of the Louisiana Superdome.

What's going to happen in the BCS Championship Game? The commentators were in some familiar places in New Orleans trying to figure that out.

We're rooting for LSU. A few years ago Hubby and I worked with the alumni association for Ohio Buckeyes when they played in the Rose Bowl. (Not from Ohio,, just worked the Rose Bowl job) They are passionate crazy for football fans and know this will be an energy filled game.
Nice shots.
