During Mardi Gras, dancing, drinking and every sort of excess are celebrated with the sort of infectious energy which could only emanate from the city of New Orleans, with all of its steeped history and tradition.
Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is making the rounds down in New Orleans, and making some friends in the process.
Every so often, Toucher & Rich employ the help of Tony Massarotti’s randy alter ego “Naughty Massarotti.” Felger & Massarotti are down in New Orleans for the Super Bowl — a town with so much fun to be had it was only a matter of time before Naughty Mazz showed up.
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis said he holds nothing against Anna Burns Welker — the wife of Patriots receiver Wes Welker — for a facebook post she made following Baltimore’s AFC Championship win over New England.

As Hurricane Isaac threatens the Gulf again, we will see if Katrina and Isaac serve as bookends of GOP hostility to federal disaster relief. An odd stance for a party that claims to “choose life” while watching people die in natural disasters rather than provide an adequate response.
What should the Republicans do with their convention if the big storm hits New Orleans? Why not seize the chance to explain how they can help it recover?
Isaac is already having a major effect on the Republican National Convention in Tampa, which was supposed to get underway today.
Our computer models continue in a westward shift with the track of Tropical Storm this morning. Yesterday, models leaned towards taking the storm into the FL panhandle. Today, they seem to be favoring a track into Louisiana. There is still a great deal of uncertainty with the eventual outcome of landfall…somewhere between Pensacola FL and New Orleans Early Wed AM. How strong? Cat 2 likely. 100+ mph…but could be stronger depending upon the track and the depth of the warm water the storm tracks over. Cat 3 can not be ruled out. Storm Surge will be dependent upon the strength of the storm as seas/waves become bigger with deeper pressure falls and stronger winds. Where ever this storm hits it will come with significant storm surge flooding and damaging winds. All of this happening on the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The path into New Orleans is the worst direction a hurricane can take for the city 6 feet under sea level. Levees could be tested again. All we can do is hope for a shift to the East…but then Mobile, Biloxi and Pensacola are the target. Answers to strength, track, surge, impact will come in the coming days. For now…all we can do is monitor.
