The impact of the championship game and the Sugar Bowl on the city has been huge. Regardless of whether LSU wins tonight I will be happy. New Orleans has looked like its old self to me for the past week. It is so nice to see the streets packed with tourists, hotels at max capacity, and streetcars filled with passengers. I hope that the media coverage for the games and the stories that will be told by recent tourists will entice others to come here and enjoy all that New Orleans has to offer.
La Luz was in rare form tonight. She was dressed in her LSU cheerleader uniform but was doing the "Go Dawgs" cheer. I guess that is what happens when you live in a divided house.
