In this richly researched, beautifully designed and illustrated volume, Maria Laurino strips away stereotypes and nostalgia to tell the complicated, centuries-long story of the true Italian-American experience. Looking beyond the familiar Little Italys and stereotypes fostered by The Godfather and The Sopranos, Laurino reveals surprising, fascinating lives: Italian-Americans working on sugar-cane plantations in Louisiana to those who were lynched in New Orleans; the banker who helped rebuild San Francisco after the great earthquake; families interned as "enemy aliens" in World War II. From anarchist radicals to "Rosie the Riveter" to Nancy Pelosi, Andrew Cuomo, and Bill de Blasio; from traditional artisans to rebel songsters like Frank Sinatra, Dion, Madonna, and Lady Gaga, this book is both exploration and celebration of the rich legacy of Italian-American life.

NFL Pick Five Contest - Week 2 Results I've done this for just over a season and I have never seen the carnage - the total, complete carnage - after this week of betting. If we were betting real money, some people would be cashing out the kids' college funds and trying to find jewelry to pawn. It was that bad (everyone says 'how bad was it?'): Of the 23 people who bet this week, 19 of them finished at a loss. Only 3 had positive gain. 4 people lost all $1000 they bet. 15 people lost $500 or more. Now, the question is why: Simple. There are 6 teams that are considered 'elite' in the league this year. These are (in no particular order): Seattle, Denver, New England, San Francisco, New Orleans and Green Bay. Of those 6 teams that are considered elite, only 1 of them won AND covered (New England). So, if you were relying on the power teams...you lost. Not to mention how sad it is when our best week is had by a Dallas Cowboy fan... Maybe the people who didn't bet this week had the right idea. Best Week: ...
William Walker – Physician, lawyer, journalist – and filibuster. September 1860, US filibuster (mercenary soldier) William Walker was executed in Trujillo, Honduras, by Honduran forces. William Walker was born 8 May 1824 in Nashville, Tennessee. He was a bit of a childhood prodigy. At the age of 14, he graduated summa *** laude from the University of Nashville. At age 19, he received his medical degree from the University Of Pennsylvania – Philadelphia,and practiced for a short while in that city. He then moved to New Orleans to study law – which did not last long. While in New Orleans, he became co-owner and editor of the New Orleans Crescent. His wanderlust bug kicked in full time, though. Off to California he went with the 49ers, where he worked as a journalist in San Francisco. Then he became a filibuster to help the US gain more territory for future slave states. His targets were first Mexico,and later Central America. He would declare himself president of Nicaragua. His government was recogn ...
My opinion: Top bandwagon NFL Teams 1. Pittsburgh (How can such a small city have a nationwide bandwagon?) 2. San Francisco (Started winning after years of being a laughingstock, all of the sudden they have a ton of "fans" again.) 3. Green Bay (Very loyal local fans, but if you're a Washington Native who roots for them over the Hawks, what the *** ) 4. Denver (number 18) 5. Dallas (called "America's Team" on a highlight reel- people think that's cool). 6. Oakland (I think people like them for the logo) 7. Chicago (Even people not old enough brag about the '85 Bears- c'mon it's been too long guys). 8. New Orleans (Won a Super Bowl after Katrina, a nationwide bandwagon was inevitable.) 9. Carolina (ever since they got Cam Newton you'd think they were the best team in the league with how loud their fans are). 10. Washington (So "loyal", most of their fans want to keep a racist name. Plus they think draft bust RG3 is an amazing QB).
What time of the year is it? Yes football season. You know what that means? Football predictions from yours truly. Again some know but if not I will not make predictions on Green Bay Packers games because the thing is when I make my predictions I do not want to be biased and Green Bay I would be. Plus since its week 1 I will explain who I think will be good and who will suck. Sorry its late but here we go 1. New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons: Now remember last year first game of season was in New Orleans for these opponents and there were High hopes for both teams but as you saw last year the falcons flopped. To me Matt Ryan and the Falcons in general are a very inconsistent team. One year they may win the division and then the next in last place. I just have zero faith in them. As for the Saints they will be great. They will take NFC South. They got a great team with great qb Drew Brees and one of the best Tight Ends in the league Jimmy Graham signing a new deal. They will be in the pl ...

NFL Week 1 Odds: New Orleans, New England and San Francisco are the only road favorites in Week 1. The Saints ...
The Fine 15, Pre-Camp Edition Now this is odd. A Fine 15 some 46 days before the season starts. But there’s nothing like a little controversy to sell papers. 1. Seattle. I like the approach of the coach and the defense (“We’re going to win again, and we don’t care who knows it”) and, from being with Russell Wilson a bit this offseason, I know his approach. He’ll enter camp this week thinking he’s got to beat out Tarvaris Jackson for the starting job. 2. Green Bay. Aaron Rodgers has his weapons and his health, and the schedule’s friendly post-Sept. 4, with the Bills, Jets, Dolphins out of conference on the docket. 3. San Francisco. If I trusted Colin Kaepernick as much as I trust Russell Wilson, 1 and 3 would be reversed. 4. New Orleans. The rich get obscenely richer, and Brandin Cooks wins offensive rookie of the year, and the defense stays stout. Need to survive the schedule: three of the first away, three of the last five away. 5. Indianapolis. I’m buying the Luck hype, plus he gets b ...

Flag Day What's a flag? What's the love of country for which it stands? Maybe it begins with love of the land itself. It is the fog rolling in with the tide at Eastport, or through the Golden Gate and among the towers of San Francisco. It is the sun coming up behind the White Mountains, over the Green, throwing a shining glory on Lake Champlain and above the Adirondacks. It is the storied Mississippi rolling swift and muddy past St. Louis, rolling past Cairo, pouring down past the levees of New Orleans. It is lazy noontide in the pines of Carolina, it is a sea of wheat rippling in Western Kansas, it is the San Francisco peaks far north across the glowing nakedness of Arizona, it is the Grand Canyon and a little stream coming down out of a New England ridge, in which are trout. It is men at work. It is the storm-tossed fishermen coming into Gloucester and Provincetown and Astoria. It is the farmer riding his great machine in the dust of harvest, the dairyman going to the barn before sunrise, the lineman me ...

Carnaval San Francisco's Mission District 2014 After attending Mardi Gras in New Orleans once and Carnaval in Bahia Brazil three times, you'd think I might be jaded about a 20-block parade through San Francisco's Mission District, especially when it comes to shooting film. After all, Bahia is documentary ready. Its carnaval is a five-day, city-wide orgy of scores of live music trucks and marching samba bands and a million Brazilians not to mention untold quantities of beer and the 92 degree heat. Still, San Francisco's Carnaval stands tall and continues to astound me. First of all, its fabulous celebration of San Francisco's critical Latino heritage—you know, the one before the *** invaded—and I love the Bolivians, especially since it must be tough marching in their many-layered dresses behind a Brazilian troupe. Secondly, San Francisco's Carnaval, held since the '80s on Memorial Day (since the regular late-February date of beginning of Lent is too cold here), is an opportunity for executives, f ...

There was a lovely memorial service for my Mom at her church this morning. Part of it was a time for friends and family members to say things. Here's what I said. When my Mom was in the Coast Guard in W.W. II she was stationed in New Orleans and she met a handsome sailor and married him. That was my father. He was a good fellow, from all I've learned. The problem was that he had a girl back home he really wanted to go back to. So the marriage ended. I wound up being raised by my Mom's parents. They were wonderful people and they were very good to me. Too good to me, probably.. In any event when I was growing up with my grandparents and my Mom was raising her Davis family in Mentor-On-The-Lake I didn't see her all that often and never got to know her very well. Years went by. In the late 1990's I was in San Francisco making my living as a sidewalk banjo player. A friend of mine in New York wanted to meet me in Las Vegas. At the same time my Mom was going to Las Vegas for the purpose of seeing t ...

One of the greatest writers who ever lived has died. Gabriel Garcia Marquez. His ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SOLITUDE (UN CIEN ANOS DE SOLEDAD) won the Nobel Prize some years ago. I first read this book on a bus trip from New Orleans to San Francisco quite a while back. I took a bus because I wanted to see the scenery from mid-Texas to California, but instead I missed all the scenery because I could stop reading the novel. Simply a magnificent work of art, it is.

Today’s shelfie : Last Exit to Brooklyn by Hubert Selby jr. and City Of Night by John Rechy, two Grove Press first edition paperbacks from respectively 1965 and 1964. As many books issued by Grove Press before them, they were controversial due to explicit content, the latter City Of Night dealing directly with the homosexual world of America portraying a row of marginalized characters with a young hustler cruising New York, San Francisco, L.A. and New Orleans as pivotal point. John Rechy himself worked the streets as a male prostitute when the book was published and even after its reception as groundbreaking. It went on to become a national bestseller and in time hailed as an american classic. As a curiosity its influence can be traced in the song L.A. Woman by The Doors, adding a whole new meaning to the song. Last Exit To Brooklyn of which Allen Ginsberg said that it will "explode like a rusty hellish bombshell over America and still be eagerly read in a hundred years." It began as a short story, part ...

Tennessee Williams, "There are three cities left in the United States: New York, New Orleans, and San Francisco. All the rest are Cleveland."
Ok, I need help. Week after next is spring break, and we are supposed to take a family vacation, but my husband and I can't decide or agree on where to go, maybe I can get some advice? I want to go to either New York but driving there, on a road trip, or New Orleans, I also thought San Francisco or Los Angeles, but flying there, I'd even fly to New York if my husband thinks it's too much to drive. His ideas are Atlanta, or Savannah, Georgia, which I'm not sure if there is anything to do there, I don't mind it as a stop on a road trip but I don't want that to be our destination, Washington DC is another idea of his, which I actually like, and making day or overnight trips from there to Hershey Pennsylvania, or Williamsburg Virginia, to go to bush gardens as well as colonial Williamsburg, and maybe even the Poconos, which I think sounds cool, the day trips being a combo of our ideas, and still with a hope of possibly driving to NY from there, but just for a day or two, maybe instead of one of the other idea ...

Before 1970 I had never been any place North of Grand Rapids in Michigan. Dan brought me here in the early 70s. I am so happy for the heritage of this place. It feels like home to me. There are other places that feel like 'home' to me, for other reasons that I sometimes don't understand.. like San Francisco, New Orleans area, Central Alabama and strangely, Paris. But this is a place I have come to 'own' as if it were my own heritage. I like that.

Fillmore Slim "I conquered the game--now I'm conquering the music." Best known by his stage name, Fillmore Slim is a blues vocalist and guitarist with five albums to his credit. During the 1960s and 1970s, he was also a highly renowned pimp in San Francisco, often referred to as "The West Coast Godfather of the Game" and "The Pope of Pimping". Coming up as a true SF player in the game, Curtis Mayfield and the Superfly sound track has been the most influential LP of my life. Curtis Mayfield lyrics was a like positive refection of a hustlers dream "trying to get over" at a time when "pimpin" to some was a negative thing, and to others a superfly hustle coming up in the ghetto. Before my chosen street profession as a pimp, I was an inspiring blues artist & musician playing in a band called Eddy N & the Blues Slayers. We were influenced by groups like The Impressions & others while developing our own sound working the night clubs of New Orleans. As fate would have it, my return to music has allowed me anoth . ...

Topography After we flew across the country we got in bed, laid our bodies delicately together, like maps laid face to face, East to West, my San Francisco against your New York, your Fire Island against my Sonoma, my New Orleans deep in your Texas, your Idaho bright on my Great Lakes, my Kansas burning against your Kansas your Kansas burning against my Kansas, your Eastern Standard Time pressing into my Pacific Time, my Mountain Time beating against your Central Time, your sun rising swiftly from the right my sun rising swiftly from the left your moon rising slowly form the left my moon rising slowly form the right until all four bodies of the sky burn above us, sealing us together, all our cities twin cities, all our states united, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Honduras has suspended eight of its 10 consuls in the United States, BBC reports. Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez said there would be an investigation into whether the eight had illegally issued identity papers. The consulates affected are in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans and New York . The consuls’ suspension comes days after local media alleged that they had issued illegal papers in exchange of payments of up to $50 (£30). The only ones to remain in their posts were the consuls in Washington DC and San Francisco. An estimated 700,000 people of Honduran origin resided in the United States in 2011, according to the US Census Bureau. The case came to light after a group representing Hondurans living in the US said a number of consulates were issuing “consular IDs” – documents that bear the crest and flag of Honduras, but which are not officially recognised forms of identification. President Hernandez said in a statement that such documents were “fal ...

There's apparently a controversy about a commercial where people are singing 'America The Beautiful' in different languages. It has generated ignorant comments such as "English is America's Official Language", "Learn English or get out", or my favorite "English is America's native language. People forget that Native American languages were spoken for thousands of years before the first English speaking person arrived, that most of our major cities such Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, San Antonio, San Jose, San Francisco, Detroit, Seattle, St. Louis, New Orleans, etc. are either in Spanish, French, Native American, or some other language or combination of languages other than English, the oldest city in the U.S. is spanish, there are over 300 languages spoken in America, the are 149 immigrant languages, and there are 162 indigenous languages of which none are English. The founders of our country saw fit not to name an Official Language due to the vast number of languages spoken and ...
My quick thoughts on the SB: I have a ton of respect for Peyton Manning. I think Denver is going to score some points. But I think everyone is overlooking Seattle's offense. Commentators have been dogging on Seattle's offense and Russell Wilson because of their last six games. I'll throw out some numbers in the last six games Seattle has played San Francisco (5th in total defense), New Orleans (4), St. Louis (15), Arizona (6), NY Giants (8) and San Fran (5). The Seahawks went 4-2 in that stretch including losses at San Fran and at home against Arizona. Sure Wilson has struggled in that stretch but that is a pretty daunting stretch. Denver's defense ranks 19th in total defense. A lot of that time was with Von Miller. Denver is without Von Miller and the Seahawks have another key, Percy Harvin. Harvin makes his team better even if he doesn't touch the ball. He automatically draws the attention of the defense and takes pressure off the other Seahawks' receivers on the field. He makes Wilson better. Perhaps W ...

Super Bowl Week: After a record breaking season for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, they had to East Rutherford, New Jersey- MetLife Stadium to take on Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks who have only lost to 3 opponents (Indianapolis Week 5, San Francisco Week 14 and Arizona Week 16). Denver also only lost to 3 opponents this season as well (Indianapolis Week 7, New England Week 12 and San Diego Week 15). Both teams are playing at an extremely high level with solid wins throughout the season against power Football teams including: San Francisco, Kansas City and New England. They both had a difficult schedule in the regular season and the Post Season (in order): Carolina , San Francisco, Jacksonville, Houston, Indianapolis, Tennessee, Arizona, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Atlanta, Minnesota, New Orleans, San Francisco, the New York Giants, Arizona and St. Louis. Whereas the Broncos took on: Baltimore, New York Giants, Oakland, Philadelphia, Dallas, Jacksonville, Indianapolis, Washington, San Diego, K ...
Nobody thought Seattle could beat New Orleans twice in the same season...surely, Brees would make adjustments and knock off the Seahawks in a playoff game! The Saints were on a roll, right? Then nobody thought Seattle could beat San Francisco because they lost to them last time they met in SF by 2 points and SF was the hottest team in the NFL...peaking at just the right time (I read or heard that last statement at least 50 times last week). Now nobody's giving Seattle a chance in *** of beating the Broncos because their offense is just too good to stop and come on, it's Peyton Manning! That is, nobody except ME! If you've paid any attention at all this year you'd understand why. It's because Denver's toughest test came against the 7th and 8th overall defenses in football! Seattle is 1st by almost 30 yards a game! To put that into perspective, most teams are separated by less than a couple yards! Seattle, on the other hand, has played the 2nd (twice), 4th (twice), 5th (three times), 6th (twice), 7th, and . ...

They're back! Tommy Malone, John Magnie, Steve Amedee and Johnny Ray Allen -- the original lineup of the subdudes -- are going on the road for the first time in 17 years. Tim Cook, who played and sang with the band from 2002 until the group went on hiatus, called this afternoon to share the news. He's helping set up the shows and says tickets are on sale (or will be soon) for the two shows currently scheduled: March 21, 2014, at Herman's Hideaway, where the band first developed a rabid following in the late '80s in Denver, and March 22 at Boulder Theater in nearby Boulder, Colo. Although he and Jimmy Messa will not be joining the band for these shows, Cook said he couldn't be happier to see the original quartet patching up their differences and hitting the road. He says to look for additional dates for the original lineup in Chicago and New York later this year... Possibly Fort Collins, Colo., this summer... New Orleans maybe in the fall. San Francisco is another likely candidate. Only the Colorado dates ...

So anniversaries still happen. But I can't remember a recent one as joyous as Rhythms of Life: Down the Congo Line (Oct. 5, YBCA) for Dimensions Dance Theater's 40th. To see a whole generation ready to build on what Deborah Vaughan has started was not the least of its gifts . -- Rita Feliciano
Mr. O's Weekend Picks Jan. 11 to Jan. 12 Last week: 48-27-1 Remember, we're starting the running total fresh as of last weekend for 2014. Due to a busy journalism schedule and family time, Mr. O's weekend picks is being limited to two days and only NFL, NHL and NBA. Thank you for understanding. NFL Playoffs Divisional Round Outlook: The Saints will trouble the Seahawks but Seattle's vaunted 12th man should do enough to upset the rhythm of Drew Brees et al. I think a little Luck goes a long way (sorry, needed to through the weak pun in there) and Indy pulls the upset over New England. On Sunday, I'm all over the home teams as something about this Carolina team just makes me think they'll get the job done. Also, after hearing all week about how San Diego could upset Denver, give me Manning and I'll even take all 9 or 10 or even 11 points I'm seeing out there. Saturday, Jan. 11 New Orleans at Seattle (-8), 4:35 p.m. Indianapolis at New England (-7), 8:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 12 San Francisco (-2.5) at Carolina, ...
Playoff schedule: New Orleans at Seattle 4:30 today; Indy at New England 8:00 today; San Francisco at Carolina 1:00 Sunday; San Diego at Denver 4:30 Sunday.
Which NFL Playoffs game are you most excited to watch this weekend? - New Orleans vs Seattle - Indianapolis vs New England - San Francisco vs Carolina - San Diego vs Denver
Yeah, I mean with 30 in New Orleans, and 31 being announced in San Francisco, I think the network makes the most sense
The NFL Divisional Playoffs are set! It'll be New Orleans at Seattle and San Francisco at Carolina in the NFC, San Diego at Denver and Indianapolis at New England in the AFC. Who do you think will be in the Super Bowl?
A little perspective for Cowboy fans who want to fire everyone. IRVING, Texas - No one is happy. Not you for sure. Not Jerry or Stephen. Not Jason Garrett, nor the assistant of your choice. And certainly not the players. Kind of reminds me of this poem's final verse: Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright; The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light, And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout; But there is no joy in Mudville - mighty Casey has struck out. Yeah, the Cowboys, too. For the fourth consecutive season the Cowboys must sit home to watch them others play this weekend: Philadelphia and New Orleans, Green Bay and San Francisco, then Kansas City and Indianapolis, Cincinnati and San Diego. Then next week Seattle and Carolina, Denver and New England join the NFL postseason party. But no Cowboys, experiencing their longest absence from the playoffs since the five-season span from 1986 to 1990, but not quite as devastating as those six years to s ...
"New Orleans is one of the two most ingrown, self-obsessed little cities in the United States. (The other is San Francisco.)" - Nora Ephron
Sizing Up The Field Oh no! Not another commentary about the 2016 Presidential election! Don't worry, it's not. It's Saturday. Time for a lighter discussion. Besides, engaging in speculation re: the 2016 election would be folly at this point. Sure, Public Policy Polling shows that Chris Christie would win over Hillary Clinton if the election were held today. HOWEVER, at this same point during Bush's second term, polling had Rudolph Giuliani defeating Hillary Clinton.and we all know that's EXACTLY how it turned out. JK So I prefer to size up the NFL playoffs today.which can be just as tricky to predict as politics. But here goes: This weekend, I believe the weather will be the big story. Kansas City over Indianapolis: Colts beat the Chiefs in Week 16. Historically, that doesn't bode well for Andrew Luck's crew. Philadelphia over New Orleans: Warm weather team playing in this bitter cold? The Eagles won't soar, but will eke out a victory. Cincinnati over San Diego: See above. Green Bay over San Francisco: Be ...
Keep Pounding! So here's what we know: Date and time: The Panthers (12-4), as the No. 2 seed in the NFC, will play on Jan. 12 at 1:05 p.m. ET Opponent: Coach Ron Rivera and his staff would like to know as well, but won't until this weekend. It'll be either No. 3 seed Philadelphia, No. 4 Green Bay or No. 5 San Francisco. As the second seed, Carolina will play the highest seeded team after wild-card weekend. If the Eagles beat New Orleans on Saturday Night in Philadelphia, they will travel to Charlotte. If the Saints win, the Panthers will play the winner of Sunday's game between San Francisco at Green Bay. They can't play the Saints or top-seeded Seattle, which will host the lowest seeded team. If they win: The Panthers would travel to Seattle for the Jan. 19 NFC Championship if the Seahawks win. If the Seahawks lose, they would host the NFC Championship.
Check out all the Niners that were selected! - Roger The Pro Bowl is for the best players in the NFL. The annual All-Pro team is for the best of the best. The Associated Press announced their starters and second team for the All-Pro team Friday, as determined by 50 AP voters. These are the designations that are given extra weight when Hall of Fame voting comes up. It's the best historical indication of what players truly dominated their positions. We'll have analysis on the teams soon, but first let's take a look at the rosters. Quarterback: Peyton Manning, Denver. No second team quarterback.

Dennis was one of the best friends I have had in my entire life. We traveled all over the country chasing Rock and roll Dreams. We spent time in N.Y., Boston, New Orleans, San Francisco, Hollywood, and Phoenix to name a few. When I was going to Loyola University in New Orleans , LA. Dennis cam down for a visit. New Orleans was a real Rock and Roll party town and unlike N.Y. where most Rock musicians were more concerned about their "Look" then their "Licks" in New Orleans a band would allow a musician to come up on stage and Jam. If you were good it was like two Gunfighters in the old west trading chops to see who was better and faster on their Axe. (If you sucked or were even just OK you got booted off stage pretty quickly. One night we were in a place called the Warehouse and Johnny Winters band was playing (with out Johnny) They had their own band (named "Thunderhead" and they had a record out and were trying to get off of Johnny's coat tails ( I need to add that we knew these guys and we knew the two . ...

Wow that was fast the opponents have been set for the 2014 NFL schedule even though it won't be officially announced until April I'm excited already. Chicago Bears home games: Detroit, GreenBay, Minnesota, New Orleans, Dallas, Buffalo and Miami and away games: Detroit, GreenBay, Minnesota, Atlanta, Carolina, San Francisco, New England and New York Jets. So Denise N. Franklin I see about 3 games I am definitely attending out of state!
Be quiet! We might play yall again if when we beat San Francisco next week! IF yall beat New Orleans!
Playoff Predictions. Starting with the NFC Wild Card Round ! Saints @ Eagles The Saints (who have struggled when playing on the road/outdoors) will travel to cold Philadelphia to face a high octane Eagles offense. If any offense in the NFC can go toe to toe with New Orleans offense, it's Philadelphia. Look for a shootout, but in the end, I think Philadelphia will pull off the win, at home, in the cold, against a defensive coordinator that they used to face twice every year Saints 27 Eagles 41 49ers @ Packers The 49ers march to Green Bay for a rematch against the Packers. So far Green Bay is 0-2 against Colin Caepernick, who went bananas against them in the playoffs last year with his legs, and then did the same with his arm in the season opener. Aaron Rodgers is well rested however after missing games with a collarbone injury. Green Bay will be looking for revenge while San Francisco is looking to deal with unfinished business in Met Life Stadium. Your guess is as good as mine but... 49ers 21 Packers 24 A ...
Good Morning! Well once again we have no Cowboys to route for in the playoffs, so what's new? Let's make early predictions though, of the teams left, Jim & Lisa want to know who you think will win Super Bowl 48? (Just in case you're not sure who's left: Denver, Seattle, Kansas City, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Philadelphia, San Diego, Cincinnati, San Francisco, Green Bay, New England, Carolina.)
6 Seahawks make 2013 PRO-BOWL!! By Associated Press & KOMO Staff HONOLULU - Six Seattle Seahawks were named to the NFL's Pro Bowl Friday. Quarterback Russell Wilson joins Max Unger, Marshawn Lynch, Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas, and Cam Chancellor as selections for the game to be played in Honolulu on Jan. 26. The NFL revealed Friday that the Chiefs and 49ers each had eight players voted into the Pro Bowl, including running backs Jamaal Charles of Kansas City and Frank Gore of San Francisco. Denver quarterback Peyton Manning was selected to his 13th Pro Bowl after receiving the most votes among fans, 1.43 million. New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees was second among fans with 1.2 million votes. The NFL combines votes from fans, players and coaches to determine 86 of 88 Pro Bowl players; the other two players are long-snappers selected by Pro Bowl coaches. Voting ended Thursday. Under a new format this year, NFL greats Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders will divvy up the players in a two-day draft before the Jan. ...

Associated Press -Sean Payton can accept if New Orleans misses the playoffs while a division winner with fewer victories makes it. He's also OK if the Saints have to go on the road in the postseason against a team with a less impressive record. "I kind of like the way it is set up right now," the Saints coach said of the NFL's playoff format, which gives the first four seeds to division winners, regardless of record, and the last two seeds to wild cards. Heading into Sunday's regular-season finale, it's possible for the Saints to finish as a wild card at 11-5, and go on the road to play the winner of either the NFC North or NFC East divisions — teams which may have as few as nine wins (Philadelphia is the only one with a chance to reach 10). The Saints could also miss the playoffs with 10 wins if they lose (and if Arizona beats San Francisco). The system has worked against Payton before. In 2010, the Saints were an 11-5 wild card team, hitting the road to play a 7-9 Seattle team that won a weak NFC West ...
Someone asked so here it is, My Top Coaching Candidates: Jack DelRio, current Broncos DC, former Jacksonville HC (he would be my first choice because he's been there and done it and done it well). Next, my list would be guys who have success working with QBs, that's the Lions biggest investment and it's regressing. So next would be: Pete Carmichael, OC at New Orleans who has been a QB coach; Mike Shula, OC at Carolina who has mentored some great runs by QBs over the years, Darrell Bevell, OC in Seattle who had same position in Minnesota and saw Tarvaris Jackson have a career year; and then Jay Gruden, OC in Cincinnati. Next would be some strong defensive minds and good candidates, but not as strong due to no QB coach experience: Vic Fangio, DC at San Francisco; Sean McDermott, DC at Carolina and then Greg Manusky, DC at Indianapolis.
Arizona, San Francisco and New Orleans all have 10 wins already and one of them will not make the playoff
The National Football League Pays No Federal Taxes One of the most profitable organizations in America, with billions in tickets, TV rights, and merchandise sales, and with an NFL Commissioner who earned more money than the CEOs of Wal-Mart, Coca-Cola, and AT&T, is considered a non-profit. It has a tax-exempt status. It gets even worse. While the individual teams themselves are not exempt from federal taxes, they enjoy multi-million-dollar subsidies from their states for new and refurbished stadiums. Fans - and non-fans - of the Washington Redskins, the Cincinnati Bengals, the Minnesota Vikings, the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are among those who pay taxes for their hometown football fields. New Orleans taxpayers paid for leather stadium seats. For the Dallas Cowboys, a $6 million property tax bill was waived. A Harvard University urban planning study determined that 70 percent of the capital cost of NFL stadiums has been provided by taxpayers, rather than by ...
Two years ago this month, I spent four consecutive nights at the Fillmore in San Francisco as we witnessed Metallica celebrating their 30th year in the business with the extravaganza known as “XXX”. It seems as though the entire metal community showed up for the celebration, as every song over those four nights brought out some legendary figure to the stage. John Bush from Armored Saint, Kid Rock, Irish band Sweet Savage’s Ray Haller, their extended tribute to the Danish black-metal band Mercyful Fate, Metallica reconvened four of the original members, including singer King Diamond, New Orleans' Soul Rebels Brass Band, Marianne Faithfull, Faith No More's Jim Martin, Pepper Keenan from Down and Corrosion of Conformity, Lynyrd Skynyrd's Gary Rossington, Judas Priest's Rob Halford, producer Bob Rock, Black Sabbath’s Ozzy Osbourne and bassist Geezer Butler, estranged guitarist and Megadeth boss Dave Mustaine, original bassist Ron McGovney, guitarist Hugh Tanner (James Hetfield's high school friend and ...
365 Days of Black History - DECEMBER 21ST 1911: Josh Gibson, *** Baseball Leagues home run king, is born in Buena Vista, GA. ADAH ISAACS MENKEN (1835 - 1868 ) Actress, painter, poet. Born of mixed parentage in New Orleans, Adah Bertha Theodore was considered a creole, 'of mixed race', usually black and white. In 1856 she married Alexander Isaacs Menken, whose name she kept after their divorce. As a performer, Menken achieved fame in San Francisco as an operatic diva. Although deceptive regarding her heritage, she possessed an exceptional intellect, was a talented dancer, was fluent in Spanish and French, wrote brilliant poetry and was an accomplished painter. She counted Charles Dickens as one of her friends. Her most famous role was in 'Mazeppa', an opera based on a poem by Alexander Pushkin. Her final resting place is in the Montparnasse Cemetery in France. A cemetery reserved for France's elite artists and authors. More tomorrow...

LATEST MECHANICAL ENGINEERING NEWS UPDATE (December 15, 2013) Walls of wind turbines could protect cities against hurricanes, a new study suggests Details -- According to a presentation held at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), in San Francisco, fields of wind turbines could be used to sap the energy of massive tropical storms and hurricanes before they reach coastlines, potentially saving billions in damages and loss of lives. Experts at Stanford University, led by civil and environmental engineer professor Mark. Z. Jacobson, conducted a series of computer simulations showing that an array of around 70,000 wind turbines installed in the pathway of Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy would have made the storms less deadly. In the case of Katrina, wind speeds may have been reduced by as much as 50 percent at landfall, while the storm surge may have been reduced by 72 percent. New Orleans and the Louisiana Gulf Coast would have suffered significantly less, were this system set in place in 2 ...

There is a chance the San Francisco 49ers will have their first-team offense available for the first time this season Sunday at Tampa Bay. Standout guard Mike Iupati was on the field for a walk-through practice Wednesday. 49ers Coach Jim Harbaugh said he expects Iupati, who suffered a sprained MCL in his knee Nov. 17 at New Orleans, to practice this week. If Iupati stays the course and plays, the 49ers will be at their healthiest of the season. He has been replaced by Adam Snyder. When Michael Crabtree made his season debut Dec. 1 against St. Louis, Iupati was out and left tackle Joe Staley left the game in the first quarter with a knee injury. Staley played Sunday against Seattle. Barring any unknown issues this week, 49ers' starting 11 offense could all be together at the team tried to clinch an NFC playoff berth Sunday.
The Seattle Seahawks are No.1 but Denver, New Orleans, Carolina and San Francisco not far behind.
DENVER (AP) - Estero High School graduate Matt Prater now owns a piece of history and has an NFL record all to himself. The Denver Broncos place kicker kicked an NFL-record 64-yard field goal as the first half expired in the Broncos' game against Tennessee on Sunday. Prater's kick on a clear day in 14-degree weather with nary a hint of wind barely cleared the crossbar. Prater spread his arms and hollered. His holder, Britton Colquitt, jumped on his back in jubilation as their teammates rushed into the tunnel for halftime. The record-breaking kick cut Tennessee's lead to 21-20 at the break. The 64-yarder bested the record of 63 set by New Orleans' Tom Dempsey in 1970 and tied by Denver's Jason Elam in 1998, Oakland's Sebastian Janikowski in 2011 and San Francisco's David Akers last season. Janikowski's and Elam's kicks also came in Denver's thin air. Prater has long said he figured his only chance of breaking the record would be to do it in September before the weather gets nasty in Denver. But this was th ...
What a three weeks it has been. Quit my last job on the 1st. Spent a lovely week off with my Michael and The Buster playing tourists in lovely San Francisco and Marin County. Started a new job on the 11th and have worked straight through until a few moments ago. Met a lot of great people at my new company Monday to Thursday, then flew to New Orleans for a convention last Friday. Gave a presentation on two protocols, about an ophthalmology molecule we are studying, that I know virtually nothing about. :). (somehow I still managed to impress. I am guessing it was the Prada suit and new shades). Also spent a lot of time walking the streets of the French Quarter, healing a few very old wounds that I suffered while living there in 1987, and thankfully finally found peace, forgiveness and compassion. Arrived back in SF Wednesday at midnight, in the office Thursday, and then spent the day today at cooking school/team building in the famous Sonoma/Napa Valley. The food we prepared, the bonding of new co workers, ...

To all my fellow fantasy football freaks ... The following players are owned the most often on last-place teams in CBS Sports leagues, per The Associated Press: QB: Tom Brady, New England; Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco. Some people believe Brady is on the upswing after throwing for 296 yards and a touchdown Monday night against Carolina. Kaepernick's rushing numbers aren't enough to make up for his low passing totals. There are 15 quarterbacks who have more total points in standard leagues that tally four points per touchdown passing. RB: C.J. Spiller, Buffalo; Trent Richardson, Indianapolis; Ray Rice, Baltimore; Steven Jackson, Atlanta; Maurice Jones-Drew, Jacksonville. All five players were taken on average in the first two rounds of fantasy drafts this year. WR: Roddy White, Atlanta; Marques Colston, New Orleans; Hakeem Nicks, New York Giants; Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona; Steve Smith, Carolina. It's probably not hard to guess that Fitzgerald has been the most productive of this group this year. But 20 ...
What Does It Mean to Take the New Orleans Saints Seriously? - The New Orleans Saints are 8-2 after Sunday’s 23-20 win over the San Francisco 49ers. They’re one game ahead of the Carolina Panthers in the loss column and in sole possession of the NFC South lead. Only the Seattle Seahawks have a better record in the NFC. But do we really look at the Saints as a team that can win the Big Game? A quick glance at New Orleans’ schedule shows wins over lowly t...
Hartley kicks Saints to late win over Niners - Marques Colston capped a record-setting day with a 20-yard reception to get the Saints into field goal range, and Garrett Hartley kicked a 31-yarder as time expired, lifting New Orleans to a 23-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
It's been a while since we've had to hold our breath at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, but the Saints allowed us to exhale in exuberance as they defeated San Francisco.      Despite the three turnovers, despite the penalties, New Orleans found a way to win and did it with more great defense and timely offense. The Saints engineered one of their best fourth quarter performances all-around. The 49ers took a 20-14 lead, the game's largest lead, with just over thirteen minutes to go. The Saints then ran seven plays to cut the lead in half after a Garrett Hartley field goal (more on him in a moment). The defense then forced a three-and-out on the Niners' next drive. New Orleans followed that with a 12-play drive that resulted in a field goal to tie it at 20. The defense forced another three-and-out, which gave the Saints possession with 1:41 to go. New Orleans took over from the 40-yard line after San Francisco's punt team interfered with Darren Sproles' fair catch. The Saints used up all that time as Garre ...
Tomorrows NFL Tips and Analysis Detroit -1.5 - $1.80 – TAB – Detroit come into this game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in control of the NFC North after last week’s victory against the Chicago Bears, 21-19. The Matthew Stafford led offence is averaging 410 yards this season due to having offensive weapons such as Calvin Johnston and Reggie Bush to target. The Pittsburgh Steelers come into this game banged up defensively and despite being at home; the Lions should get the better of them in tomorrow’s game. With the Ben Roethlisberger lead offence struggling this year, we find no reasons why the Lions can’t cover the -1.5 line with ease New Orleans -3.5 -$1.95 – TAB – With the New Orleans Saints being at home and coming off a blowout victory against Dallas last week, 49-17. With offensive weapons such as Marques Colston and Jimmy Graham for Drew Brees to pass too, the Drew Brees led offence should be too powerful for the San Francisco defence. For the San Francisco 49ers, they are hopeful th ...

"It’s maddening to think that any one of the four teams in the NFC East will play for a chance at a Super Bowl while teams like San Francisco, Carolina, Chicago, or even New Orleans could potentially not make the playoffs. We’d be better off watching Green Bay with a third-string Scott Tolzien at quarterback before watching Dallas and Tony Romo get punched in the mouth again." Yup, the NFC East *** deal with it.

The "experts" are nothing more than biased fans with college degrees. O State hasn't lost in two years, but the voters are still hating over '06 & '07. In the NFL, there is no "human element" whatsoever. If there was, then Mario would've never got his chance to make "the catch" in the Super Bowl because if the participants were based on votes, do the Giants make it over New Orleans, San Francisco, Green Bay, etc.? Of course not, and that's just in the NFC. Now, Stanford may jump Ohio State since they beat Oregon? I'm sure that the "experts" would love to magically forget that Stanford already lost to Utah. College football is nothing more than a bunch of "I told you so's." Once the Ohio States, Oregons, Baylors, etc. of the world lose, it's "I told you so." If Alabama (or even LSU in most years) loses, it's, "There, there. It's gonna be ok." Even Boise State beat Oklahoma when the Sooners had Adrian Peterson, but the Boise States of the world aren't given the same opportunities in college football ...
The Elite: 1. Denver (Last Week – 4) 2. Kansas City (1) 3. Seattle (2) 4. San Francisco (6) 5. Indianapolis (5) 6. New Orleans (3) 7. New England (9) 8. Cincinnati (8) 9. Carolina (11) 10. Detroit (10) Denver (7-1): There was no way I was going to let Kansas City and Seattle take the spot considering the way they played last week. Denver is going to have quite the challenge to stay here though, as they lose Head Coach John Fox for six weeks, and those six weeks are games all against teams at .500 or better. Kansas City (9-0): You can say what you want about how I left the Chiefs at far too long and how maybe I’m now a hypocrite by dropping them now. That’s ok. They got outplayed again last week and going into a bye week seems like a fair time to give somebody else a chance at the top. They stick at because their defense is still one of the toughest in the league, allowing just 11 touchdowns to be scored against while scoring 7 of their own. Seattle (8-1): What happened to Seattle, having to force ov ...
Ah, the light is waning. We will be leaving for the signing in a couple of hours. 7 p.m. at Books Inc, Opera Plaza, San Francisco. Christopher will sign "The Heavens Rise." I will sign "The Wolves of Midwinter." And so my beautiful day in San Francisco will extend into a beautiful evening, made all the better by hotdogs from the stand by Union Square and the blue sky over head and the mild weather. San Francisco, Open your Golden Gates! Why can't I live part of the year here, part in New Orleans and part in Southern California? Well, maybe I can.
I am one of three people left in an NFL elimination pool -- you pick a team to win each week, but once you pick that team, you may not pick them again. Here are the teams I cannot pick again --New Orleans, St. Louis, Seattle, New England, Indanapolis, Green Bay, Chicago, and San Francisco. The teams I am considering are Carolina (against Atlanta), Dallas (against Minnesota) or Kansas City (at Buffalo). Which would you pick, or someone else?
Ok, don't feel down Seahawk fans. I was feeling down until I heard a couple of comments today on Sports Radio 710. First of all, how well would other teams do if they'd lost BOTH their left and right starting tackles. Most likely much worse and with many losses and down to their third string quarterback they were able to bring out of retirement, oh, Brett Favre. So, once we get our starting tackles back and playing, Seattle is going to peak at just the right time... Before they play San Francisco and New Orleans and onward to the Super Bowl Title...
Denver, Green Bay, San Francisco, Seattle, New Orleans, Indianapolis are all clearly better. You could argue New England and Cincinnati too.

Power Rankings Time! 1. New Orleans Saints 2. Denver Broncos 3. Seattle Seahawks 4. Kansas City Chiefs 5. New England Patriots On the bubble: San Francisco, Cincinnati, Green Bay I must be the only one who thinks New Orleans are a better team than Denver but I do for a number of reasons. Firstly, the Saints actually play defense. Rob Ryan has this defensive unit playing fantastically despite there historical ineptitude last season. Kenny Vacaro is in the mix for Defensive Rookie of the Year and Cameron Jordan is a nightmare pass rusher and is gaining consideration for Defensive Player of the Year. Denver on the other hand are leaking yards everywhere. Against the Cowboys, Romo and company moved the ball and scored seemingly at will against the Broncos first unit defense. The issue with the Broncos defense against the Cowboys is they conceded points and yards from the opening drive, these weren't yards accumulated in junk time, the Broncos were punished by an attitude that their offense is a safety net for ...

In related news, the San Francisco Chronicle's cannabis-friendly Smell The Truth blog on August 29 noted "a rare bit of justice for the victim" -- a New Orleans police officer who shot and killed an unarmed young man during a 2012 marijuana raid will serve a four-year sentence for manslaughter. Officer Joshua Colclough was part of a cannabis-related raid on a New Orleans home in March 2012 when 20-year-old Wendell Allen appeared shirtless and unarmed at the top of a staircase. Colclough shot and killed Allen, a recent college graduate. Colcough later resigned from the force, pleaded guilty to manslaughter, and began serving a four-year sentence last month.
Sacramento, CA, Next time your driving thru Sacramento and it's lunch or dinner time, I recommend you get off the freeway and head to, Magpie Cafe. The food and service rivals every great restaurant I've experienced and that includes New York, Chicago, New Orleans, San Francisco, and Los Angeles with one exception "Spago's" of Beverly Hills. One of my clients in Sacramento invited me to dinner at Magpie Cafe. They do a huge catering business. I only wish they had a restaurant here in Los Angeles. Sacramento is a very charming town, sophisticated and I'm not taking about the political arena. It has an ambiance that I would have never imagined. If it wasn't for the Hot summers and Freezing winters I could see myself living there, maybe in the next life. I have some friends from L.A. who cashed out and moved to Sacramento most moved to the burbs like Rocklin, Roseville, Granite Bay, Rail Head Park & Rancho Cordova and they love it, a Golfers Paradise. Flying or Driving into Sac head over to Magpie Ca ...

Good Eggs Nabs $8.5 Million from Sequoia and Others for Local Farm-to-Fridge Effort (Video) Eggs, the local farm-to-fridge local grocery delivery startup, has nabbed $8.5 million in funding from Sequoia Capital, which it will use to expand its service to more cities. Currently, with 80 employees and 350 local food vendors on its platform, the San Francisco-based company is operating in the Bay Area, as well as Brooklyn, Los Angeles and New Orleans. The Series A funding was led by Sequoia Capital, with partner Bryan Schreier joining the board. In addition, Harrison Metal and others — including Baseline Ventures, Collaborative Fund, Max Ventilla, Mitch Kapor — will also invest in the new round. While there are a lot of delivery services out there, Good Eggs is a really interesting play in e-commerce, trying to complete the link in the food delivery chain for those interested in organic or locally sourced products. While Google and Amazon are deep-diving into the arena, as well as local supermarket chain ...
NFL power rankings week 3 all though there are lots of these on the net some sites having the saint or 3 i think this one is accurate in my opinion. 1. Denver Broncos (3-0): Beating Oakland isn't the greatest accomplishment, but Denver makes it look so easy. (LW: 1) 2. Seattle Seahawks (3-0): The Seahawks ran over the Jaguars, but who didn't see that coming. Seattle and Denver are essentially 1 and 1a in the rankings. (LW: 2) 3. New England Patriots (3-0): They're not overwhelming anybody, but New England is unbeaten and has room to improve. (LW: 3) 4. New Orleans Saints (3-0): Welcome to the top five, New Orleans. The Saints defense has been revived under Rob Ryan, and it's showing. (LW: 6) 5. Chicago Bears (3-0): Marc Trestman has turned the Bears into an offense-oriented club, but it's their M.O. -- defense -- that is going to help them win in the NFC North. (LW: 7) 6. Baltimore Ravens (2-1): Even without Ray Rice, Baltimore pummeled the Texans at home. (LW: 9 7. San Francisco (1-2): Colin Kaepernick . ...
Here is my Week NFL fearless picks! Last week: 11-4 record... Houston defeats Baltimore (Texans win for Ed Reed's homecoming), NY Giants defeat Carolina (neither one can afford to go 0-3 so Giants season on the line), Washington defeats Detroit (RG3 unloads today and runs the field), Tennessee defeats San Diego (Chargers worn down by another long trip across country), New Orleans knocks off Arizona, New England defeats Tampa, Green Bay knocks off Cincinnati (Big Game for the Pack on the road), St. Louis surprises Dallas at home (still not confident in Cowboys), MINNESOTA defeats Cleveland (or else a new Coach and QB will will be brought in next week), Atlanta defeats Miami (Big Game for the beat-up Falcons if they are thinking playoffs), Buffalo defeats NY Jets (I like EJ over Geno in the rookie QB showdown), San Francisco over Indianapolis (bad week for the Colts to get an upset Niners team), Seattle to crush Jacksonville (Jags' franchise needs to relocate and get new identity), Pittsburgh in a surprise ...

Great Dinner this evening with Friends at the Best Meat Restaurant in the entire SF Bay Area: the 60+ year old and going "House of Prime Rib" in San Francisco. And yep - that's ALL they do: Prime Rib - which is why you simply Will Not find better Prime Rib anywhere in the SF Bay Area (or most other great steakhouses I've been to - even in Chicago, New Orleans, and NYC). Denise was actually restrained this year - she's like a Boa Constrictor when it comes to Rare Red meat and can pack away more than anyone else her size and weight - - AND - w/o the negative "lump in your stomache" afteraffects that most of the rest of us get from eating large quantities of red meat late in the evening. And best of all - even though I have temporarily lost the key to my wine cabinet and could therefore not take out one or two bottles of my prime Cabs, they actually had the 2009 Rafanelli on the menu for $58.00 - that's only about 18$ over retail (IIF you can find it, which is next to impossible since it always sells ou ...

Rolling out ICEarth in Madrid, New Mexico, and Cincinnati, New Orleans, Austin, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Taos, Tuscon, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, and all America around and between, via my photojournalism of our best and worst, via ICEarth, at last.
BR, N.O. make Forbes list of best cities for information jobs BY TIMOTHY BOONE Advocate business writer June 03, 2013 0 COMMENTS Baton Rouge and New Orleans both ranked among the top cities their size on Forbes’ magazine’s list of “Cities Winning the Battle for Information Jobs.” Baton Rouge ranked No. 7 on the list of medium-sized metros that are luring information jobs. Trenton, N.J., was first. New Orleans was ranked No. 3 on the list of 10 big cities, behind only San Jose, Calif., and San Francisco and ahead of tech cities such as Boston; Austin, Texas; Atlanta; San Antonio; Raleigh, N.C.; Phoenix; and Nashville, Tenn. Forbes based its rankings on information sector employment data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics from 2001 to the present. “This is important validation for the New Orleans-Baton Rouge super region as a whole,” said Michael Hecht, president and CEO of Greater New Orleans Inc. “This shows that southeaSt Louisiana has a promising future as a tech hub.” “In that s ...

The New York Mets sign right-handed reliever David Aardsma to a minor league contract and assigned him to Triple-A Las Vegas. He signed with the New York Mets after opting out of his minor league deal with the Miami Marlins. He was 1-0 with a 2.57 ERA for Triple-A New Orleans. Here's a little bit about him. -Former Seattle Mariners closer -The 31-year-old missed all of 2011 cause he had offseason hip surgery and then an elbow ligament replacement operation that July. -He signed with the Yankees before last season and made one appearance. He was cut by the Yankees on March 29 after failing to make their Opening Day roster, but signed with Miami. -A 2003 first-round pick by San Francisco, Aardsma saved a combined 69 games for the Mariners in 2009-10. Overall, Aardsma is 13-15 with 69 saves and a 4.22 ERA in 255 games. The Mets' bullpen has a 4.77 ERA, 29th in MLB. Do you guys think this was a good pick up? - Dontae

2 wks today we're off to LA. Then New York, Niagara Falls. Then for the big moment to Huntington Beach, where two very special people get married. Then off to Palm Springs, New Orleans (can't wait), then San Francisco and LA off home. So huge trip. EXCITED!
"New York is one of the capitals of the world and Los Angeles is a constellation of plastic, San Francisco is a lady, Boston has become Urban Renewal, Philadelphia and Baltimore and Washington blink like dull diamonds in the smog of Eastern Megalopolis, and New Orleans is unremarkable past the French Quarter. Detroit is a one-trade town, Pittsburgh has lost its golden triangle, St Louis has become the golden arch of the corporation, and nights in Kansas City close early. The oil depletion allowance makes Houston and Dallas naught but checkerboards for this sort of game. But Chicago is a great American city. Perhaps it is the last of the great American cities." Norman Mailer

Explain something to me, Americans. Why are the major cities in America almost never a state capital? These days I was surprised when I saw on a map that the capital of Florida, for example, was nor Miami, nor Orlando, neither Tampa... but the never unheard of (to me) "Tallahassee". New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, New Orleans, Detroit, Seattle, San Francisco, Las Vegas... they're all very traditional worldwide known major cities, and none of them are capitals on their respective states. Is there any kind of pattern to chose a smaller city to host the capital, or every case has its own isolated background, and it's just all about a strange coincidence?
TIME FLIES !!! Can't believe it was 4 years ago this week that I first walked into Comcast SportsNet Bay Area here in San Francisco. It feels like yesterday & 100 years ago all together. Besides my fellow DC-FOX 5 boy Dave Benz, I didn't know anyone in the Bay Area, but would soon meet close to 120 new co-workers, all trying to remember each others names while figuring out how we were going to launch a new TV network in like 6 weeks. We've come a LOOONG way, it's been an amazing experience, made a lot of great friends(see the pictures, they're nuts !!!) & said goodbye to a few along the way. I've been very lucky to have been on the road with the Giants & A's at spring training twice, at the MLB All Star game in Anaheim, with the Giants on their magical World Series & parade run in 2010, with the A's on their crazy playoff run this past year & with the 49ers in New Orleans for the Super Bowl. And I got to see the NY Football Giants win the NFC Championship here last year. Check out the pictures, it's been ...
@ THE hAVENBOWL the Pittsburgh Steelers tied up with the Kansas City Chiefs in the 3rd Quarter... after some most excellent runs from both teams, the Chiefs were shut down in the 4th Quarter... in the end though, the Steelers won 21 to 14. In the AFC, the Miami Dolphins , (the # 3 Seed) vie against the # 2, Tennessee Titans. The New England Patriots, the # 1 Seed versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, # 4, in the Elimination Round. In the NFC, the Washington Redskins face the San Francisco 49ers, while the Chicago Bears, (the # 1 Seed) battle the # 6 Seed, the New Orlean Saints.
Journal entry. August 9, 2012. I left Tucson, AZ at 8:55 p.m., arriving in San Fran-Sisco (sp?) early on August 11; should have arrived at 6:46, but train was an hour late. The "Bay Area" seems a wonderful place, from the glimpse I got of it from the train and the little I could walk through the streets. I feared to go very far from the station, as we had arrived late and I had been told everything would "start" near the correct time as possible. We came after nightfall into San Francisco proper. Here I stopped for the night at the Crystal Hotel. Just as I had been warned by the girl I met in West Virginia who had done an ARGO previously here, at the hotels here labor is in control, they even order the guests like myself to your room with billy clubs shouting "Go to your room, and stay put!" I found my smattering of Russian very useful here. Indeed I don't know how I should be able to get on without it. Having some time at my disposal while in New Orleans, I had visited the public library, and made a sear ...
Cajun Country Cajun Country By Phil Tripp If you’ve followed my travel pieces for Rhythms, they’ve mainly been about where to find great music and food plus accommodations in major cities—New Orleans, San Francisco, Chicago, Nashville, Honolulu, Los Angeles and others. But I thought with many people planning to go to Jazz Fest or French Quarter Fest in New Orleans, South by Southwest in Austin or other Southern spots, I’d shine the alligator spotlight on Cajun Country about two or so hours West of Nawlins, six hours out of Austin and another world of musical and culinary culture. First let’s get the question of Cajun versus zydeco out of the way. They both have their roots in French cultures with the Cajuns (short for Acadians also known as Coonasses) being white settlers driven from Canada by the British into the swamps, while the Creoles were black slaves who mated with French lovers and created a mulatto culture. Both music genres feature accordion, fiddles and guitars while zydeco adds a me ...
The cities that people like and enjoy visiting, and the places people find unpleasant tell me a lot about my friends--do I really want to risk travelling with them or not? I am one of those 19th century types who like "walkable cities." Savannah, New Orleans, Rome, London, San Francisco [above all], and to some degree New York and Montreal. The places I find unpleasant are: Dallas [loud, rich, shopping malls, not for me] Houston [ditto. ], "Vegas" [never been there, never will go there], Los Angeles [only with a native who can show me around], Memphis [bland; trying hard to be Dallas but never making it], and Atlanta [the most over-rated metropolis in North America. like Charleston, full of ego, but totally lacking in warmth. Underground Atlanta awoke only one feeling in me: 'WHY?"
Finally there is good news on the jobs front for the Obama administration. Al Jazeera, or “Terrorism TV,” as it used to be known for celebrating the three thousand Americans killed on 9/11 and other exploits by Osama bin Laden, announced plans to create some 200 jobs in the United States over the next six months — in its headquarters at the UN in New York, in Washington, D.C., and in bureaus in Detroit, New Orleans, San Francisco, and other cities. “Imagine six or seven years ago, trying to find real estate for Al Jazeera in Washington,” gushed Rob Wheelock, the former ABC executive who is in charge of establishing Al Jazeera in the United States. “We’re going to have signage just like CBS, ABC, CNN, CBN, just like everyone else. We’re psyched.” Perhaps the signage will include skull-and-crossbones, or some other fitting image of human slaughter. Yes, as Mr. Wheelock said, it is hard to believe the cable network enterprise that did so many fawning interviews with the late terrorist leade ...
Black History Month - William Alexander Leidesdorff, Jr. (October 23, 1810 – May 18, 1848): The first African Millionaire, Leidesdorff was one of the earliest mixed-race U.S. citizens in California and a highly successful, enterprising businessman. He was a West Indian immigrant of African Cuban, possibly Carib, Danish and Jewish ancestry. William Alexander Leidesdorff, Jr. became a United States citizen in New Orleans in 1834. He migrated to California in 1841, then under Mexican rule, settling in Yerba Buena (San Francisco), a village of about 30 European-Mexican families. He became a Mexican citizen in 1844 and received a land grant from the Mexican government, 8 Spanish leagues, or 35,500 acres (144 km2) south of the American River, known as Rancho Rio de los Americanos. He served as US Vice Consul to Mexico at the Port of San Francisco beginning in 1845. Leidesdorff was Presdident of the San Francisco school board and also elected as City Treasurer. Shortly before Leidesdorff's death, vast amounts ...

A Municipal Report by O Henry Fancy a novel about Chicago or Buffalo, let us say, or Nashville, Tennessee! There are just three big cities in the United States that are "story cities" - New York, of course, New Orleans, and, best of the lot, San Francisco. FRANK NORRIS. East is East, and West is San Francisco, according to Californians. Californians are a race of people; they are not merely inhabitants of a State. They are the Southerners of the West. Now, Chicagoans are no less loyal to their city; but when you ask them why, they stammer and speak of lake fish and the new Odd Fellows Building. But Californians go into detail. Of course they have, in the climate, an argument that is good for half an hour while you are thinking of your coal bills and heavy underwear. But as soon as they come to mistake your silence for conviction, madness comes upon them, and they picture the city of the Golden Gate as the Bagdad of the New World. So far, as a matter of opinion, no refutation is necessary. But, dear cousin ...
Did you know?... that the country's first African American millionaire was William Liedesdorff? In 1841, Liedesdorff arrived in San Francisco Bay on his schooner "Julia Ann." Born in the Virgin Islands around 1810, the son of an African American woman & a Danish sugar planter, Liedesdorff left home to learn the maritime trade, working on ships out of New Orleans. Already a wealthy man when he came to San Francisco, he bought land, built a home, & opened a store. He then proceeded to make a major impact on the city. As a member of the city council, Liedesdorff was instrumental in setting up the first public school & organizing the first official horse race. He launched the first steamboat on San Francisco Bay & later opened the first hotel. He eventually owned an extensive amount of land in the city as well as a huge estate near Sutter's Mill, in gold-rush country. Liedesdorff died at the age of thirty-eight from what was then called "brain fever". A short street in downtown San Francisco still bears his n ...
The night the lights went out in New Orleans I promise my headline is the only pun I’ll make in reference to Sunday night’s power outage in New Orleans that delayed Super Bowl XLVII for more than a half hour. As tempting as it is to make jokes about how it gave the San Francisco 49ers the “jolt” they needed for a comeback, I’m not going to do it. I’m far too good to make cliché remarks about how the Baltimore Ravens fought off the “surge” by the Niners in the second half. I want to focus on the actual game itself. What happened Sunday night wasn’t the greatest Super Bowl of all time, contrary to what Raven linebacker Terrell Suggs would have you believe. I would hesitate to use the word “classic,” as to not be seen as a purveyor of hyperbole like talking heads on many sports shows, but what occurred during Sunday’s game was indeed memorable. Super Bowl XLVII will be known as the night the lights went out in over half the stadium and gave us a second halftime (sans Beyonce Knowles) ...
Former sex trafficking victim shines light on dark underworld of Super Bowl Feb. 1 2013 Amid the parties and fun of Super Bowl 2013, authorities say, there is a dark underworld of girls and women being forced into the sex trade. Sitting in the festive lobby of a New Orleans hotel, festooned with San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens decorations, Clemmie Greenlee, a former victim of sex trafficking from Nashville, recalled being brought to cities around the South to prostitute for those attending such large-scale events. For Greenlee’s pimps, the influx of people provided a massive money-making opportunity. “When they come to these kinds of events, the first thing you’re told is how many you’re gonna perform a day,” she said Friday. “You’ve got to go through 25 men a day, or you’re going through 50 of them. When they give you that number, you better make that number.” Having been abducted and gang-raped by her captors at age 12, Greenlee said, she was one of about eight girls controlle ...
Beyonce put on such an electrifying performance she used up all the power and blew out the lights at this year's Super Bowl in New Orleans! And Colin Kaepernick almost pulled off the most miraculous Super Bowl comeback in history for his team, the San Francisco 49ers! Unfortunately, his offense dropped too many passes, and his usually stalwart defense allowed too many passes to be caught! Moreover, Baltimore was a team of destiny!   2012 could be called the year of the black quarterback Black quarterbacks were the new breed, making most of the headlines, with players like Colin Kaepernick, Russell Wilson, Cam Newton and Robert Griffin III, aka RGdazzling the National Football League with their scrambling ability and foot speed, accurate passing skills and overall sterling play! Fulfilling the promise of all previous black quarterbacks who paved the way, from Marlin Briscoe and "Jefferson Street" Joe Gilliam, to James Harris, Randle Cunningham, Warren Moon, Donoban McNabb and Michael Vick! ...
MORMON MISSIONARY WHO SERVED IN Dominican Republic, HERO OF THE Super Bowl!!! "Misionero Mormón que sirvio en Republica Dominicana, héroe del Super Bowl" SD. Before lifting the 2013 NFL trophy last Sunday in New Orleans, after concluding the party's largest audience in the history of the US TV.UU., Dennis Pitta spent two years in the Dominican Republic. Pitta, the Baltimore Ravens receiver, retarded joining the Brigham Young University Mormon, for 24 months, between 2005 and 2007, in evangelizing mission as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of the saints of the last day in Quisqueya. Sunday, Pitta was incumbent on the triumph of the Ravens over 49ers San Francisco (34-31) in the Super Bowl XLVII. Pitta, 27 years and native of Fresno, California, entered the NFL in 2010, after three seasons at BYU. On Sunday he had four receptions, toured 26 yards and in hands completed the pass for a touchdown from quarterback Joe Flacco, who gave an advantage to his team 14-3 in the second of the game played in th ...
THE SHERIFF’S VIEW Pulaski County Sheriff Ronald long The stadium lights are partially out in New Orleans, so what a better time to write my article then while taking a break from the Super Bowl. At this point I am sure that New Orleans law enforcement agencies are on standby as we watch the San Francisco 49ers take a beating. I somewhat find myself in disbelief due to already beginning week five as your Pulaski County sheriff. With most people time accelerates with age but certainly I have never experienced it passing at this speed. Where did my first month in office go? Maybe I should assign one of my detectives to help find it for me. Despite being very busy, I have to say that one of the highlights of last week was my first town hall meeting at the Senior Center in Dixon. Wow, what a great turnout! Our Dixonites continue to show great pride for their community. I do believe the head count was slightly over seventy, and on one of the coldest nights of the season. Among the major topics of conversati ...
Super Bowl XLVII: Brought to You by Solyndra "While the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers compete to hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy this weekend, eco-friendly fans and city leaders in New Orleans are competing to maximize sustainability practices to the fullest," exults a U.S. Energy Department press release: To make this the greenest Super Bowl, the New Orleans Host Committee has partnered with fans and the community to offset energy use across the major Super Bowl venues. The exterior of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome features more than 26,000 LED lights on 96 full-color graphic display panels, designed to wash the building in a spectrum of animated colors, patterns and images. The system draws only 10 kilowatts of electricity--equivalent to the amount of energy used by a small home--and the lights are expected to last for many years before needing replacement. Off the football field, New Orleans is embracing energy efficiency with help from the Energy Department. The city retrofitted four librarie ...
I'm usually not much on conspiracy theories, but I'm starting to believe something is going on in the NFL. Ever since the Colts loss to the Saints in a game plagued with bad calls and obvious "no calls", and then the story was deemed a feel good story for New Orleans after Katrina, I've started seeing more evidence that the NFL is more concerned with the story of the Super Bowl than the game. Yesterdays game was another example of making a story more important than the game. Ray Lewis's last game in the NFL, and he goes out a winner, is the story. But if it wasn't for bad officiating in the game against Denver, Baltimore wouldn't have been in the Super Bowl. Then in the Big Game the officials blatantly decide the winner, come on! A no call on obvious pass interference that would have gave San Francisco a new set of downs on the 2 1/2 yard line for the win. Not to mention Cary Williams automatic ejection from the game for putting his hands on a referee, as well as the other half dozen, or more, unsportsman ...
QB Colin Kaepernick rallies from slow start, nearly leads another 49ers comeback in Super Bowl 02-04-2013 01:36 AM MST |By JANIE McCAULEY, AP Sports Writer Enlarge This Image Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones (12) catches a 56-yard touchdown pass against San Francisco 49ers cornerback Tarell Brown (25) during the first half of the NFL the Super Bowl XLVII football game, Sunday, Feb. 3, 2013, in New Orleans. (AP Photo/Gene Puskar) NEW ORLEANS (Associated Press) -- Under pressure and off balance, Colin Kaepernick released a fourth-down throw into the end zone with the outcome of the Super Bowl hanging in the balance. Everyone in the Superdome could see that the ball wasn't caught as it sailed over Michael Crabtree. Enraged San Francisco Coach Jim Harbaugh argued for why: He thought Crabtree got held, bumped by cornerback Jimmy Smith with safety Ed Reed trailing the play. "There's no question in my mind that there was a pass interference and then a hold on Crabtree on the last one," Harbaugh said. ...
VERY Interesting a POWER OUTage Hm? Wondering? NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - The biggest U.S. sports event of the year and parties across the world were interrupted by a 35-minute power outage during the football Super Bowl at the Superdome on Sunday. New Orleans electric utility Entergy Corp said it was not the cause of the partial loss of power and that the problem was due to an issue with the Superdome's equipment. National Football League officials said they were investigating the outage and would provide updates as they learned more. Moments after Baltimore's Jacoby Jones opened the second half with a 108-yard kickoff return for a touchdown that gave the Ravens a 28-6 lead early the third quarter, the scoreboard and half of the overheard lights in the Superdome went out. Officials waved a stop to play, which abruptly short-circuited the most watched television event of the year. When the outage began, the overhead lights first went out on the San Francisco 49ers' side of the field before dimming in other p ...
The Coca-Cola ad that was called racist by some Arab-American groups aired during the Super Bowl in New Orleans between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens.
Power is out at the Super Bowl. Is this a) God punishing San Francisco for *** culture? b) God punishing New Orleans for *** culture and ungratefulness towards George Bush during Katrina? or 3) God punishing America for reelecting Obamamadinejad?

Castillo enters into contract with NFL’s Ravens News by Editor Special to the PRESS Juan Castillo It didn’t take long for Juan Castillo to land on his feet, and he definitely stuck the landing. The Port Isabel native who was let go earlier this season as Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator, was hired Monday by the AFC champion Baltimore Ravens. Castillo, 53, will serve as a consultant before becoming the Ravens’ run-game coordinator next season. In that capacity, he will be working with now-permanent Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell. Castillo joined the Ravens this week and will be on the staff when Baltimore faces the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3 in New Orleans. Familiarity with Castillo’s work was likely the reason Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh was quick to bring on the respected assistant coach. Harbaugh and Castillo worked together on the Eagles staff (1997-2008) prior to Harbaugh becoming Ravens coach in 2008. Castillo, a 197 ...

Sunday, February 3, 2013 (Compliments of PRWeb) Samoa vs. Tonga at Super Bowl XLVII Willie Salavea of Style Pasifika sees Super Bowl XLVII as a chance to bring together Samoans and Tongans and heal old wounds. Polynesian Power in the NFL Quote start“If we as Polynesians are going to raise our stakes in this world we need to realize we are all cousins,” says Salave’a. “We have to support each other."Quote end New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) January 31, 2013 For over a thousand years the South Pacific islands of Samoa and Tonga have had a unique enmity toward each other that stems from centuries of past conflict. Although the islands themselves have been at peace for hundreds of years, this rivalry continues on the islands and in America with street brawls and fisticuffs whenever these culturally connected people see each other. At this year’s Super Bowl XLVII, these old rivalries play out on a world stage as two Samoans on the San Francisco 49ers face off with two Tongans on the Baltimore Ravens. The Nat ...
Super Bowl Sunday -2013” Hebrews 12:1-2 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Are you ready for some FOOTBALL? The Day is finally here! San Francisco and Baltimore will meet in New Orleans for the finial game of the 2012 season. It’s been an up and down season for both teams. They each have had their struggles – but now they are in the Big Game. One of them will walk away with a trophy that says they are the best in the world. Whoever wins it will be elated! I’ve seen 300 pound grown men cry when they win it. I have seen football warriors weeping emotionally because they won the prize. The money means nothing at this point. The endorsemen ...

His name doesn't carry the same gravitas as peers like Tom Brady or Peyton Manning, but Joe Flacco is on pace for one of the greatest postseason statistical performances in NFL history. He has thrown eight touchdowns with no interceptions during the playoffs. The only quarterbacks to finish the postseason with at least nine touchdowns and no interceptions are 49ers greats who are now in the Pro Football Hall of Fame: Joe Montata (11 TDs in 1989) and Steve Young (nine TDs in 1994). The further emergence of Flacco as the league's best deep passer puts him in line for a massive offseason contract extension. Grade: 8.5. San Francisco: A little more than two months ago, Colin Kaepernick was making his second career NFL start in New Orleans replacing the injured Alex Smith (concussion). Kaepernick is now returning to the Louisiana Superdome on the verge of leading his team to a championship. Kaepernick's running skills and strong arm have provided elements to San Francisco's offense that were lacking under Smit ...

Good Morning WORLD! Wishing all of my friends & family a joyous & healthy Super (Bowl) Sunday morning. THE Big Game will be played later today from one of my 2 favorite cities, excluding the Island of South Florida - 'Nawleans', LA. My other fav is San Francisco. Neither one of these great cities have the weather that we have in SoFL. SFD: "City of New Orleans" by Steve Goodman OR Arlo Guthrie Both versions of this song are great, but I slightly lean toward Chicago native Goodman. Goodman wrote the song. I had the honor of meeting him when I lived in The Windy City in 1975. Chicago is a great city, but not for me - ttto cold in the winter. If you've never been to 'Nawleans', you have to go there. I've been there twice with Ms U on a combo mini holiday/business trip & 5 times in my single, wilder days. Nawleans was approximately 5 hours from my home in Houston. I still love 'Nawleans' Wishing ya'll a great Super Bowl Sunday. GO RAVENS!!! DLTOW

NASCAR drivers make Super Bowl picks: Super Bowl 47 is set to kick off Sunday in New Orleans and when it comes to the NASCAR community, there are a number of opinions as to whether Baltimore or San Francisco will capture the Lombardi Trophy. • Green Bay Packer fan Matt Kenseth is sticking with the NFC San Francisco 49ers. "The Super Bowl could go either way but I'll stick with the NFC and go with the 49ers. I think (Colin) Kaepernick adds another element to the game and he's going to be tough to stop ... but man, the Ravens are looking good too. It could be a pretty entertaining game." • Dale Earnhardt Jr. is disappointed his Washington Redskins are not playing for the Lombardi Trophy, however he believes either Baltimore or San Francisco could emerge victorious. "The Ravens seem to be on a course of destiny. There's a lot of veterans on that team that know what it takes, so going into that game I think they'll be the best prepared team. But, the 49ers have been able to overcome adversity early in gam ...
Today on Grandstand with Deb Spillane, amongst news of other sport and full commentary of the ODI between Australia and West Indies from Perth, we'll have a preview of tomorrow's Super Bowl between San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens in New Orleans. The Super Bowl tends to polarise Aussie sports fans. Do you "get it" or "not". If you're a fan, what is they key to appreciating American sports biggest day. If you're not a fan, what bugs you about it?
When Baltimore and San Francisco take the field Sunday, it will mark the 10th Super Bowl in New Orleans, tying South Florida for most in NFL history.
Okay people! It is now time again for the HIGHLY anticipated: LARRY’S ANNUAL Super Bowl PREDICTION! The Crows and Gold Diggers (Baltimore Ravens & San Francisco 49ers) will butt heads (buttheads?) at the Super Dome in New Orleans on Sunday. I don’t care. Julie Chapman will back me up on this one. Since my beloved Pittsburg Steelers and (second choice) NY Giants will join me in front of televisions this year, I have a difficult time giving much of a rat’s rear end which team will win. Like so many others, I am looking forward to the best commercial. Frank Gilbert has made one of those sophomoric ( :) ), emotional, and irrational predictions that SF will win by 30 points. The Las Vegas/Atlantic City/Indian Casinos Sports Books make a TON of money on such wagers. Nevertheless… this is actually possible! Looming backstage (Sports Books survive on this), there is always something that could possibly play a big part in this game: The "Any Sunday Rule" – The absolutely worst team can actually beat the ...
Jackson, along with several other celebrities, made their predictions/picks for the Superbowl this weekend and well, you can check out Jackson’s below! Also… WHO’S GOT IT BETTER THAN US? NOBODY!! :)       Since 1986, the Scripps Celebrity Super Bowl Poll has been asking big names in entertainment, news, sports and pop culture to predict the outcome of the Big Game. This year, more than 115 celebrities picked between the San Francisco 49ers, led by quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and the Baltimore Ravens, featuring linebacker Ray Lewis.       Take note, betting fans: The celebs have gotten it right 18 times in 27 years.       And this year the majority says the 49ers will seize the Lombardi Trophy in New Orleans.       …       Jackson Rathbone, actor, “Twilight”: 49ers, 31-24. The reason behind the prediction is the emergence of Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback for San Fran. He’s on fire right now and he looks like early Tom Brady when he won his first Super Bowl. I think t ...
Good Morning. Happy Friday! It's been a long, strange trip to Super Bowl Sunday. The Ray Lewis redemption tour. San Francisco cornerback, Chris Culliver's anti *** remarks, "Can’t be with that sweet stuff..." The NFL player's union president asserting the vast majority of players don't trust team doctors Oh, and we can't forget New Orleans strong dislike of Roger Goodell. Wonder how loudly he'll be booed Sunday... In the news today: The monthly jobs report will be released at 8:30 AM ES. It's the first indication we'll have of how the economy is going in 2013. Analysts expect to show "continuity." And, many expect no change in the unemployment rate of 7.8 per cent. As you know, President Obama disbanded his jobs council, which was tasked with...creating jobs. We'll talk to Steve Case, the co-founder and former chairman of AOL, and now former member of the President's jobs council. I'll ask him why the council met just a handful of times and why it's going bye-bye when the unemployment rate is still too ...
San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh is in New Orleans now, busily preparing his team to face the Baltimore Ravens in the Super Bowl, the National Football League’s 47th annual Championship Game, on Sunday, Feb. 3.
Alright, everyone. I know you've been anticipating this for two weeks now, but your wait is finally over. That's right...it's time for... Newton's "Know-It-All" NFL Playoff Picks...Super Bowl XLVII edition. Baltimore at San Francisco(-4.5) - in New Orleans, LA First off, I would just like to say congratulations to both teams. Especially having to play on the road in their respective Conference Championship game, both the Ravens and 49ers have proved that they are well-worthy of playing in this game. Also, my hat is off to both John (Baltimore) and Jim (San Francisco) Harbaugh. Two great coaches, and I'm sure this won't be either one's last Super Bowl appearance. With that said, I'm not quite sure exactly why the current line (as of Thursday evening) favors the 49ers by 4.5 points. San Francisco is a great team, don't get me wrong, but they haven't proven (to me, at least), of being worthy of the favorite in this game. Their QB, Colin Kaepernick, is a young phenom, from virtually out of nowhere. He ...
Things I think and know: 2012 NFL Season in review and beyond Featuring Super Bowl XLVII By: Eddie Chozet Jr This Sunday down in New Orleans will officially mark the end of another NFL season. As the two remaining teams will square off in probably the most intriguing and unique Super Bowl match-up ever, brother against brother. Head Coaches, John and Jim Harbaugh, will meet for the second time in two seasons, which John’s Baltimore Ravens team came out with a win over Jim’s San Francisco 49ers, 16-6 on Thanksgiving night in 2011. Only this time, it will be for the ultimate prize in football, the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Before going into the Super Bowl, lets take a look back on 2012 for every NFL team and what their future holds. AFC AFC East Buffalo Bills- Another disappointing season for the Bills, going 6-10 for the second consecutive season. Marking their ninth straight losing season. Many believed Buffalo would make a splash in the league this season with the signing of free agent Defensive End Mar ...
Mayor: New Orleans Deserves Super Bowl Spotlight by THE Associated Press January 29, 2013 NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A 20-story-high mural of the Lombardi Trophy, affixed to the glass exterior of a bustling hotel that was once a shattered symbol of Hurricane Katrina's devastation, rises like a beacon above the expansive white roof of the Superdome. The Super Bowl is back in the Big Easy, finally, after 11 years, giving New Orleans a spotlight of global proportion to showcase how far it has come since Katrina left the city on its knees and under water in August of 2005. "The story is much, much bigger than the Super Bowl," Mayor Mitch Landrieu said Monday afternoon. "This is a story about the resurrection and redemption of a great American city. "The Super Bowl gives us an opportunity to reflect on where we've been and where we're going." From 1970 to 2002, New Orleans was a regular host of the Super Bowl and hopes to become one again. This Sunday, when the Baltimore Ravens meet the San Francisco 49ers in the Su ...
Article written by our once great Governor Robert Ehrlick in the Baltimore Sun. In sports, the Baltimore Ravens' run to the Super Bowl hit a bump in the road as the American Civil Liberties Union, in a desperate bid for relevance, sued Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis for his constant invocation of God during post-game interviews. An ACLU spokesman also confirmed the group's intent to rid all athletic competitions of pre- and post-game prayer. Regarding the Lewis litigation, the group insisted its action did not signal a preference for San Francisco, the most progressive city in America. In a related matter, the ACLU's Louisiana affiliate confirmed a preliminary investigation into the New Orleans "Saints," on similar grounds.
Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and the Baltimore Ravens jointly announce a "Super Bowl Sendoff Rally" to be held at the Baltimore Inner Harbor Amphitheater on Monday, Jan. 28.

Too bad a Concussion put Alex Smith on the Bench for the Rest of the San Francisco 49'ers Season, as he had a higher Passer Rating that ALL of Those Quarterbacks who ended their Seasons in The Playoffs... He DESERVES his Release from the $8.5 Million Dollar Contract he is Under from the 49'ers, and now it Appears he is seeking the same... It's going to be a bittersweet week in New Orleans for 49ers backup quarterback Alex Smith. And it might be his last run as a member of the 49ers. The team is expected to try to trade Smith this offseason, given the $8.5 million he's owed in 2013. But a trade isn't the only way out of San Francisco -- Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that Smith "is expected to seek" his outright release from the 49ers this offseason. It wouldn't be stunning if Smith is released: CBS Sports Jason La Canfora had Smith as his No. 3-ranked free-agent quarterback, a list made well in advance of even the Super Bowl. Smith and his big contract won't -- or, perhaps, can't --be in a backu ...
NEW ORLEANS -- Throughout his NFL career, San Francisco 49ers Coach Jim Harbaugh says he's never been around a team as focused as his current team. "I think it's really genuine," Harbaugh said. "I think it's the best focus on unity and winning that I've ever seen or been a part of." Harbaugh was lucky to inherit a fairly veteran team full of talented players when he arrived. Guys like tackle Joe Staley, linebacker Patrick Willis, defensive end Justin Smith, running back Frank Gore, safety Dashon Goldson and Tight End Vernon Davis were starving for leadership. They were also starving to win. Staley believes the way the team has been put together has been key. "I think (GM Trent Baalke) has been terrific, the entire front office staff. Not only bringing in great players, but good people, a good locker room," Staley said after arriving in New Orleans. "Great character guys. It's important to bring in talented players but you can have all the talent in the world and be, you know, an *** ." Staley went on to s ...

Hey Austin TX *** s and *** lovers. The Mattachine Dance party with John Cameron Mitchel is tonight! For five years, MATTACHINE has been packing the dance floor and overflowing the West Village sidewalks at the oldest *** bar on the continent, Julius’—the very watering hole where in 1966 members of the MATTACHINE SOCIETY, the country’s first *** rights organization (founded by Harry Hay in LA in 1950), demanded a drink to fight against the city’s “no service for known homosexuals” law. If not for their “Sip-In,” there would not have been a Stonewall. Since then, MATTACHINE has hit the road with events in Austin, Houston, New Orleans, San Francisco, Denver, Los Angeles, and Portland "promoting ethical homosexual culture" across America to remind folks that *** is more than Gaga, skinny jeans and texting while sort-of dancing. Mention Harry Hay and get $5 off the door!

(FM97 Sports / AP) — It'll be the Battle of Brothers in New Orleans in two weeks. John Harbaugh's Baltimore Ravens topped New England 28-13 to win the AFC title game and set up a Super Bowl meeting with his brother Jim. It will be the Ravens first Super Bowl appearance in 12 years. Joe Flacco threw three second-half touchdown passes while the Ravens shutout Tom Brady and the Patriots offense after intermission. New England held a 13-6 halftime lead. Brady had been 67-0 at home when leading at the intermission. The Baltimore victory avenged a loss to New England in last year's conference title game. The win extends Ravens' linebacker Ray Lewis' career and gives him a chance to go out on top. He's announced this is his last season. Earlier Sunday, Jim Harbaugh's San Francisco 49ers staged their own comeback, rallying from 17 points down to beat Atlanta 28-24 in the NFC title game. Frank Gore scores on a 9-yard run with 8:23 to go to complete the comeback and send San Francisco to the Super Bowl ...

Looking ahead to this Sunday's NFC Championship Game in Atlanta between the Atlanta Falcons and the San Francisco Forty Niners I think there are five keys to the Falcons winning this game and reaching the Super Bowl in New Orleans. 1. They must keep the San Francisco quarterback under heavy pressure all day long. 2. The Falcons have to establish a good running game to compliment their great passing game. 3. John Abraham has to play and have a great game because he is the Falcons best past rusher. 4. When the Falcons get in the red zone, they must score more touchdowns than field goals. 5. The Falcons must stay aggressive. They looked great four three quarters against Seattle but then got very conservative and got out of their game. They can't afford to do that against the Forty Niners. The Falcons are at their best when they stay aggressive. They need to control the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball and dictate tempo. I just thank God the Falcons have Matt Ryan and Matt Bryant. They both could b ...

Just looked this up. Fitz alone has more turnovers than St. Louis, Minnesota, Carolina, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Green Bay, San Francisco, Seattle, New York, Atlanta, Washington, Chicago, New England, Houston, and Baltimore. The whole teams and that's interceptions and fumbles.
"It took Congress just 10 days to pass disaster aid after Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans. When San Francisco was hobbled by an earthquake in 1989, an aid package became law eight days later. But 65 long days have passed since Hurricane Sandy ravaged New York and people like Rockaway Park, Queens, resident Phyllis Cavazzina are still waiting for congressional action. 'It’s disgraceful,' fumed Cavazzina, 59, who said her neighborhood still looks “like a war zone.” 'They told us to basically drop dead.'"

If you're lucky enough to be in your fantasy FB league's playoffs here is some insight for week 15 from The Sultan of Stats at that is sure to be the final nail in your opponent's fantasy coffin. QB Start ‘em Tom Brady (NE) vs. San Francisco – Leads all fantasy QBs with 305 fantasy points. Brady lit up the Houston defense on Monday Night Football with 4 TD passes. Sit ‘em Tony Romo (DAL) vs. Pittsburgh – Romo ranks the 4th best fantasy QB over the past 4 weeks with 86 fantasy points, but goes up against Pittsburgh who has given up the 4th fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks this season. Plus, the status of Dez Bryant’s injured finger is still undetermined. Other QBs with favorable matchups Josh Freeman (TB) at New Orleans – Freeman has at least two passing touchdowns in 8 of the last 9 games and New Orleans has given up the most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season Robert Griffin III (WAS) at Cleveland – Has a sprained LCL in his right knee, but is at practice and looks to start on . ...
For the 47th straight year, there won't be a home team in the Super Bowl. This is not exactly true; when San Francisco made the Super Bowl in January 1985, the game was played in Palo Alto on the Stanford campus. Close enough to be a home game, just not in the home stadium. Ditto the Rams in Pasadena in 1980. But the Saints losing for the eighth time this year means New Orleans will host the game this year and have a chip on its shoulder with the homeboys not playing. As Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com said Sunday night, "The commissioner better have his Popemobile when he goes to the Super Bowl this year." He's right: New Orleans will be an unfriendly place, and that's putting it mildly, for commissioner Roger Goodell, with Saints fans certain he went too far in the punishment over the bounty scandal. (In the next few days, we'll see if the supposed neutral appeals officer hearing the player appeals, ex-commissioner Paul Tagliabue, cuts the four players some slack.) Anyway, I thought interim coach Joe ...

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images Five NFC teams have separated themselves from the pack to become clear playoff teams so far: Atlanta, San Francisco, New York, Chicago and Green Bay. After those five, a ridiculous six teams are either tied for the final playoff spot or one game out: Washington, Dallas, Minnesota, New Orleans, Seattle and Tampa Bay. With respect to the first five teams mentioned, the Buccaneers have to be considered the current favorite for the coveted No. 6 seed. There are plenty of reasons why this is the case. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the spectacular play of rookie running back Doug Martin, the new and improved skinny Josh Freeman and the hard-nosed approach brought in by new coach Greg Schiano. And while those are the reasons Tampa Bay deserves the final playoff spot, they aren't why the Bucs will win it. So with that being the case, why will Tampa be playing in January? It all comes down to one thing: the schedule. The Buccaneers, barring something crazy, are going to reach at lea ...
SANTA CLARA — San Francisco 49ers wide receiver and return man Kyle Williams says he will miss the rest of the season with a torn ligament in his left knee sustained in Sunday's win at New Orleans.
Why Joe Montana is the best QB of all time!!! Montana was 4-0 in Super Bowls, and while that was impressive this is what jumps out at you: He never threw an interception in any of those games. You heard me. Zilch. He had 11 touchdown passes, no interceptions and is the only player in league history to be named Super Bowl MVP three times. Now you know why he was chosen to the league's 75th anniversary team, along with Graham, Unitas and Sammy Baugh. Montana was Joe Cool, the unflappable third-round draft pick who picked up a struggling franchise and brought it four Lombardi Trophies in nine years and 31 fourth-quarter comebacks -- including a memorable victory in 1980, his first season of starting, when the 49ers met New Orleans. In that game, the Saints led 35-7 at the half. When it was over, San Francisco somehow pulled off a 38-35 come-from-behind miracle, thanks, of course, to Montana. But he was at his best when games were most meaningful, setting playoff records for touchdowns passes (45) and games w ...
NFL tomorrow: No more week byes for the teams. Crunch time in December.

After Green Bay, the Giants will face Washington, Atlanta, Baltimore, New Orleans, and Philadelphia. Rough road to get into the playoffs. Right now they're 6-4 with a 2 game losing streak. Time to get hot Big Blue!
Jim Harbaugh’s not saying who will start at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday in New Orleans. He’s also not saying if he’s even informed Alex Smith or Colin Kaepernick of the decision. What the 49ers coach is saying is that his veteran quarterback is close to being cleared to return to action. Smith passed his final contact test on Friday and will be officially cleared for contact by the team’s Medical Director, Dr. Dan Garza, if he shows no symptoms on Saturday. Harbaugh also said Smith has felt no concussion symptoms since Tuesday. Smith suffered the concussion on Nov. 11 vs. St. Louis. “That’s a real positive,” Harbaugh went on to say. As for naming Smith or Kaepernick as Sunday’s starter, Harbaugh felt there was no benefit to releasing the information in the days leading up to a big NFC matchup.

I have been saying for some time now that San Francisco is the next city that's about to "pop" onto the international stage. There is a convergence of talent and genres at their zenith, a swirling vortex of vivid vivacious new art & artistry: burlesque, cabaret, dance, circus arts, plays, musicals, grand guignol, independent film, lady lube wrestling, new singer-songwriters, stand up comedy, audacious drag performance art and sheer unabashed genuine certified star power: Jason Brock on The X Factor, Honey Imaman Mahogany about to be on the 2013 RuPaul's Drag Race, Carly Ozard's upcoming gig at the Laurie Beechman Theatre in January in NYC, Matthew Martin and J. Conrad Frank in Billy Clift's BABY JANE?, the thriving Thrillpeddler/Russell Blackwood/Scrumbly Koldewyn revival of all things Cockette and the New Orleans staging of PEARLS OVER SHANGHAI, not to mention the ongoing global sensation baby steps that is my DIRTY LITTLE SHOWTUNES!, Heklina Heklina and Peaches Christ/Joshua Granell and Matt Bearracuda ...
