If You're Headed to Jackson . . .

. . . for Saints training camp, be sure to chime in at Saintseester's cool Training Camp 2007 blog.

A bunch of us were hoping to have a BlackandGoldapalooza there this summer, but that hasn't quite worked out, as most of us somehow have successfully procreated over the years and have associated summer responsibilities. However, there will be scattered sightings of bloggie types on the hallowed grounds of Millsaps College, as you can see from the posts on the blog.

Thanks to Saintseester and Chef Who Dat for keeping the momentum going over these many months.

UPDATE: The young Clios and I are unfazed in the least by Reggie Bush's attempts to keep the weak away from camp:
"Unless you are training in a sauna, I don't think there is anything that can prepare you for Jackson, Mississippi," running back Reggie Bush said at the end of organized training activities in June. "I think that's the whole point of that. You can't prepare for it."

When I originally started planning on this, I was assuming there would be preseason games in Jackson, like last year. Which would have opened up several more weekends of possibility. Alas, this year, all the home games are in LA (as they should be), so that takes away several weekends they would have been in town.

I am still incredibly excited about the whole thing, and am still clinging to some bit of hope that I might be able to go over.

(The good news: my sister's husband's sister's husband came through with tickets for us for the Tenn Game in da dome. So now I have to figure out how to get from a soccer tournament in TN to New Orleans on the same day.)

Great news on the tix!!!

Jet plane, Saintseester, jet plane.

What part of TN?

Southwest goes nonstop from Nashville to NOLA. Just flew that route last week.

Yeah, nashville. I suggested that to the husband. He said, and I don't quote: "but then on tuesday you'd have to drive home 2 hours" - meaning I would have to drive a separate car to nashville for the tourney, then drive my own ass home after partying all night because he doesn't want to come get me.

Actually, it only costs about $20 more to fly from HSV and then I don't have to drive so far home. I drove last year. Going down there was fine. Coming home Tuesday after that MNF game? I was a bit shaky, let's say.

I laughed out loud at this.....being from MS I can tell you the humidity there is NOTHING compared to here.

Your comment about procreation gave me a laugh too. Too funny.

After a long, mentally challenging, and especially grueling camp, we might be ready for the game.

Nice comment, Jim.

Is there something wrong with the thought of a pasty chef in a thong disgusting me?

What the !>>> with the spoon?

Not sexy, just Saints, baby.

Keep it above the waist.

Everytime I put on a thong I spill Wendy's Chili on it!

Can't get the stains off the front or the back.

Arvada, CO
Police arrested a 47-year-old man on suspicion of indecent exposure outside the Safeway store on the 9500 block of West 58th Avenue at 2:25 p.m. May 24. The man told police he had consumed several pints of vodka during the day and had engaged in an argument with a bar patron in the parking lot of the Red Lion Lounge, 9502 W. 58th Ave., during which he exposed his genitals in anger, police said. He also allegedly said he knew what he did was wrong, but that he used to do it on a regular basis when he was in high school, according to police reports. When told how much his bond was by Jefferson County Jail staff, he proudly shouted that the body part he exposed was worth $1,000, reports said.
