Carnival has begun! January 6 was this past Friday. King cake: consumed.
January 7: Saints v. Lions wild card playoff at the Superdome. (which was won handily- next week, San Francisco!)
Tomorrow is the BCS Championship game, also at the Dome. LSU v. Alabama, an entrenched rivalry down here.
The whole city is vibrating with excitement and celebration... it's going to be an amazing month or so coming up.
