Will Hurricane Gustav affect New Orleans sports teams at all?

 

Though Hurricane Gustav doesn’t appear to have caused as much damage as Hurricane Katrina, won’t this still affect sports teams. Regardless of if it directly hit the city of New Orleans it still did a lot of damage in areas outside the city. The Saints and Hornets fan base is all of Louisiana and probably some of Mississippi. Since these people probably won’t plan on shelling out money for tickets and team gear until they get their lives back in order and the city of New Orleans still struggling to get back to the way it was before Hurricane Katrina one must wonder whether this could be a disaster for the Saints and Hornets. Your thoughts?

Well the Superdome and Arena sustained no damage during Hurricane Gustav. The city suffered very little flooding this time. The Saints game scheduled for this weekend at the Superdome is still on, so I don’t think it will have an effect at all on Sports teams.

Why don’t Sports teams have names that reflect where they are?

You know like the Arizona Lizards, Louisiana Cajuns, etc.

Green Bay Packers – Indian Packing Company

Minnesota Vikings – 400% more immigrants from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Finland settle in Minnesota

Milwaukee Brewers – Beer capital of the world

Minnesota Twins – Twin Cities

Dallas Cowboys – Texas Longhorns

Miami Dolphins – LOTS of dolphins there

New York Jets – First commercial jet service between New York and England

San Francisco 49ers – What they called people during the Gold Rush

Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Pirates used the port in Tampa

Pittsburgh Steelers – Steel capital of the world

Oakland Raiders – Also pirate reference, but relating to China

Seattle Seahawks – State bird

ANYWAY, I could go on, but this should make the point. Almost all teams have local names, but their meaning may have been lost over time. Hope it helps…Kes

Can anybody help me solve a hypothesis testing?

LSU is the state of Louisiana’s flagship school and is located in Baton Rouge. Tulane University is the largest private university in Louisiana and is located in New Orleans. Both schools have been recently known for their academics, but there was a time that Tulane held a decided edge on the issue. The sports rivalry between the two schools has been on-going for approximately 117 years. During the 1980’s, there was a joke that the two schools finally agreed to collaborate upon settling any disputes over who should get a particular player when both schools wanted and were actively recruiting the player. The prospective player would be handed a candy bar with representatives from both schools present. If he peeled the wrapper off of the candy bar prior to eating it, he would be awarded a scholarship to Tulane.

A fledging graduate student decided to do research on whether or not the joke was true. Instead of using candy bars, he obtained the ACT scores of membership of both teams to compare and ascertain whether or not there was indeed a significant difference in intelligence between the two schools in terms their respective football teams, as well as who really held the academic advantage.

This can’t be done without some statistical data.

Should all sports teams move out of Louisiana?

With all the hurricanes costing them millions why would they stay in that mess?

How much money can a sports team lose before they say that’s it?

Every year they lose millions!!

Player Profile: Clonie Gowan

Her real name is Cycalona Gowen because she was born during a tropical storm. Clonie grew up in Kiowa, Oklahoma and played sports in high school. She ranked seventh in the high jump in track and field and was also a championship-level basketball player. She had looks as well as skill in sports and the pretty young blonde won the Miss Teen McAlester crown in Oklahoma at age fifteen.

Clonie is a divorced mother of two and lives in Dallas, Texas. Her older child, a daughter, lives with her first husband and she is raising her second child, a son, who is a product of her second marriage.

She learned poker while in her teens and became more skillful after her first divorce when she would drive to Shreveport, Louisiana to play in the casinos. Clonie began to win several hundred dollars each weekend which soon became a steady income and decided she could earn more money as a gambler then working at her travel agency business to play poker full time and finds this world much more to her liking.

She became known to the public after finishing tenth in the 2002 Costa Rica Classic. The following year, she beat five of the world’s best women players – including Annie Duke and Jennifer Harman – at WPTs Ladies Night which was an event that was made for television.

Some of Clonie’s poker-related activities:

• Appeared on Good Morning America

• Mentioned in the New York Times, Dallas Observer, Texas Monthly, Esquire Magazine

• Guest appearances on Ultimate Poker Challenge in Las Vegas and European World Poker Championship in Dublin, Ireland

• Writes a regular Question and Answer column for WSOP Bluff Magazine

• Member of the Board of Directors of the United States Poker Association

Clonie Gowan is a member of the team of poker experts on FullTilt.com, Howard Lederer’s website, which include the following notables:

• Chris Ferguson

• Jennifer Harman

• Erick Lindgren

• Mike Matusow

• Phil Ivey

• John Juanda

• Phil Gordon

• Erik Seidel

• Andy Bloch

She is now a partner in a poker school teaching the basics of tournament play to women and men. She states the aim of the school is to instruct her students “How to be successful in a competitive game where your own money is at stake.” Additionally, she is writing a book “Good Girls Do Make the Final table”, which is scheduled to be printed by Harcourt Brace and is due out some time in 2006.

Unlike most other well-known poker players who are open about their winnings, Clonie, “The New Face of Poker”, is vague about her finances.

She also is involved in charities where she is a frequent host and does a great deal of volunteer work. At the Whisper Walk in Dallas to help victims of ovarian cancer, Clonie – whose mother is a survivor of this disease – was a very much appreciated guest speaker.

Clonie Gowan is considered a midlevel poker professional and has high public visibility. However, her name did not appear in Card Player magazine’s rankings and she has thus far not finished at the final table of any important tournament.
