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.

New Orleans (pronounced /nuːˈɔliənz, nuːˈɔlənz/ locally and often pronounced /nuːɔrˈliːnz/ in most other US dialects French: La Nouvelle-Orléans is a major United States port city and the largest city in Louisiana. New Orleans is the center of the Greater New Orleans metropolitan area, the largest metro area in the state.
New Orleans is located in southeastern Louisiana, straddling the Mississippi River. It is coextensive with Orleans Parish, meaning that the boundaries of the city and the parish are the same. It is bounded by the parishes of St. Tammany (north), St. Bernard (east), Plaquemines (south), and Jefferson (south and west). Lake Pontchartrain, part of which is included in the city limits, lies to the north, and Lake Borgne lies to the east.
The city is named after Philippe II, Duc d’Orléans, Regent of France, and is one of the oldest cities in the United States. It is well known for its multicultural and multilingual heritage, cuisine, architecture, music (particularly as the birthplace of jazz), and its annual Mardi Gras and other celebrations and festivals. The city is often referred to as the “most unique” city in America
La Nouvelle-Orléans (New Orleans) was founded May 7, 1718, by the French Mississippi Company, under the direction of Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville on land inhabited by the Chitimacha. It was named for Philippe II, Duke of Orléans, who was Regent of France at the time; his title came from the French city of Orléans. The French colony was ceded to the Spanish Empire in the Treaty of Paris (1763) and remained under Spanish control until 1801, when it reverted to French control. Most of the surviving architecture of the Vieux Carré (French Quarter) dates from this Spanish period. Napoleon sold the territory to the United States in the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. The city grew rapidly with influxes of Americans, French, and Creole French. Major commodity crops of sugar and cotton were cultivated with slave labor on large plantations outside the city.
The Haitian Revolution of 1804 established the second republic in the Western Hemisphere and the first led by blacks. Haitian refugees both white and free people of color (affranchis) arrived in New Orleans, often bringing slaves with them. While Governor Claiborne and other officials wanted to keep out more free black men, French Creoles wanted to increase the French-speaking population. As more refugees were allowed in Louisiana, Haitian émigrés who had gone to Cuba also arrived. Nearly 90 percent of the new immigrants settled in New Orleans. The 1809 migration brought 2,731 whites; 3,102 free persons of African descent; and 3,226 enslaved refugees to the city, doubling its French-speaking population.
During the War of 1812, the British sent a force to conquer the city. The Americans decisively defeated the British troops, led by Sir Edward Pakenham, in the Battle of New Orleans on January 8, 1815.
As a principal port, New Orleans had the major role of any city during the antebellum era in the slave trade. Its port handled huge quantities of goods for export from the interior and import from other countries to be traded up the Mississippi River. The river was filled with steamboats, flatboats, and sailing ships. At the same time, it had the most prosperous community of free persons of color in the South, who were often educated and middle-class property owners.
The population of the city doubled in the 1830s, and by 1840 New Orleans had become the wealthiest and third-most populous city in the nation. It had the largest slave market. Two-thirds of the more than one million slaves brought to the Deep South arrived via the forced migration of the internal slave trade. The money generated by sales of slaves in the Upper South has been estimated at fifteen percent of the value of the staple crop economy. The slaves represented half a billion dollars in property, and an ancillary economy grew up around the trade in slaves – for transportation, housing and clothing, fees, etc., estimated at 13.5 percent of the price per person. All this amounted to tens of billions of dollars during the antebellum period, with New Orleans as a prime beneficiary.
The Union captured New Orleans early in the American Civil War, sparing the city the destruction suffered by many other cities of the American South.

In this video, Betty describes how to make delicious Peppery Jambalaya. If you like spicy rice and smoked sausage, you will love this!
2 packages of boil-in-bag precooked rice, uncooked
1 pound smoked sausage, cut into 1/4-inch diagonal slices
1 1/3 cups chopped cooked ham
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, chopped
14 1/2 oz. can beef broth
1/4 teaspoon black pepper (You may use more, for hotter flavor)
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (You may use more, for hotter flavor)
Prepare the rice, according to package directions. Drain, and cover with aluminum foil to keep it warm. While the rice is cooking, combine 1 pound smoked sausage, 1 1/3 cups chopped ham, 2 stalks of chopped celery, 2 cloves of minced garlic, and 1 chopped onion in a large, deep skillet or Dutch oven. Cook over medium to high heat, stirring constantly, until sausage is browned and the vegetables are tender. Now, add 14 1/2 oz. beef broth, 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper in a large deep skillet or Dutch oven. (You may increase these each to 1/2 teaspoon, but it will be *very* hot!) Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the cooked rice. Serve on a nice serving plate with French bread. Enjoy, y’all!
