Let the Games Begin!

Sound the horns!  Roll out the red carpet!  Bring to me all of your finest meats, cheeses, and ice cold beers!
The King hath returned.
The king of American sports that is – The National.  Football.  League.  It’s true, after 133 days of conversation, negotiation, litigation, and watching re-runs of Californication, the NFL is back in business.  Players were hugging owners, owners were hugging players, and cats and dogs were living together in perfect harmony as Roger Goodell and DeMaurice Smith stood in front of the NFLPA headquarters in Washington D.C. like two proud parents of a new bouncing baby boy.  As they announced the newly agreed upon Collective bargaining agreement between the players and owners, one that will bring labor peace for the next decade, NFL fans throughout the world celebrated the fact that there would be a full NFL season.

Gone Campin'!!

Two weekends ago, more than 1,200 hopeful pro football prospects packed up their helmets, cleats, and parents’ checkbooks and headed down to Thibodaux, LA for the Manning Passing Academy.  The Academy, now in its 14th year overall and fifth year on the beautiful campus of Nicholls State University, is one of the most respected and well known summer football camps in the country.  Founded by former Saints’ great Archie Manning and his sons – Cooper, Peyton and Eli – this camp boasts a wide array of talent not only from the campers, but especially from the counselors.
