Louisiana Sports

What are some good themes for homecoming?

i was thinking do like famous streets (bourbon street in new orleans, broadway, hollywood blvd, and another one that i haven’t yet thought of.)

is my idea a good one and do you think people would like it? what are some other good ideas- i know they’ve done western, board games, decades, disney movies, mardi gras (we live in louisiana), and the list goes on. i was thinking sports also but idk if they have done it yet.

thanks for advice!

Streets are a really good… and can be a fun challenge to decorate. You could do eras, like the 1950′s sock hop… and require a costume for everyone ! Poodle skirts and guys with grease in their hair… and so on ! Good luck with the dance !

Northern Illinois Huskies versus Lousiana Tech Bulldogs College Football Odds and Pick Gamblers Television

From http://GamblersTelevision.com

College Football Independence Bowl Northern Illinois Huskies versus Louisiana Tech Bulldogs (+1) Sunday December 28th (8:15PM ET) (ESPN)

Louisiana Techs 7 wins came against extremely weak opponents as they beat up on the cellar dwellers from the WAC and Southeast Louisiana from the Football Subdivision. Northern Illinois fought well at 2 BCS schools losing by 4 at Minnesota and 4 at Tennessee. The Huskies passing defense has really stepped it up this season as they recorded some outstanding efforts on the season. NIUs head coach Jerry Kill has done a good job of improving the program in his first year as the team was coming off a 2 win season. NIUs spread offense will be effective against Louisiana Techs weak pass defense that allows nearly 280 yards per game. There are also 20 seniors on the Huskies who would like to erase an embarrassing Bowl defeat to TCU back in 2006 in the Poinsettia Bowl. Take Northern Illinois +1.

Selection: Northern Illinois +1

Cool “Louisiana Sports” images

A few nice Louisiana Sports images I found:

Huge Mural in Downtown Shreveport


Image by cybertoad
"Shreveport’s history and heritage can also be seen on the "Once in a "Millennium Moon" mega mural. This mural ties this area’s cultural legacy together. It is the largest public outdoor mural in the country spanning some 30,000 square feet on the 12-story AT&T building in downtown Shreveport. On the mural, the Caddo Indians, the area’s military installation Barksdale Air Force Base, and family heirlooms and community artifacts are depicted." link

"During the first two months of the Millennium Year, Meg Saligman and the staff of the Shreveport Regional Arts Council met with more than 75 organizations, interviewed hundreds of individuals about their ideas and heritage, photographed thousands of people for the mural and read every book written about this area!

Meg’s painting plan involved more than 2,600 people! She perfected a “paint by number” grid that is applied to sheets of plastic cloth. Once painted the cloth is “floated in acrylic” on the wall, much like wallpaper installation. Paint Parties were held all over Shreveport! Festival sites, parks, club meetings, art galleries, bank lobbies, and schools became home to paint sessions. The public commitment to work on the mural was awesome! More than 40% of the total mural has been painted by the community…" link

What’s a Crawdad and do I want to eat it?

My friend & I share a love for sports and food. He recently came down from Louisiana with a taste for crayfish and he went to our local fish market and placed an order for 150 frozen Crawdads. I was filled in as to what they are and I am freaked. Do they taste good? Aren’t the waters in Louisina dirty? Should I stop being such a child and just enjoy the nice dinner that my friend worked his butt off to make for me (and others)? I guess I’m just really "weirded" out and just need a little bit of a push. Please leave any comments bad or good that you have about the "Crawdad".
Thank You.

Kinda like a cross between shrimp and lobster.

They are really good if you like the seafood, and you should not worry about "dirty water" because most of them are farmed in rice fields. When they harvest the rice, they drain the fields and harvest the crayfish.

The frozen ones are not going to be as good as the live ones. The live ones are like having a mini-lobster boil.

Anyway, just give it a try. Most people only eat the tails. Some people suck on the head to get the full experience.

Good Luck.
