As the party in New Orleans continues…

Many observers are wondering about the answer to one question – will residents sober up in time for Mardi Gras?

Now that the Saints have won the Super Bowl, those paper bags that fans used to wear over their heads are gone for good. But in a humanitarian gesture, folks in New Orleans are sending their unused bags to Wrigley Field.

The Super Bowl attracted over 50 million viewers in the U.S., more than any televised program ever, surpassing the previously most-viewed final episode of MASH. That show aired in February 1983. To give you an idea who long ago that was, Brett Favre was just thinking about his first retirement, and “The Who” had just received their first social security payments.

This just in… FEMA sent a memo warning the City of New Orleans to hire extra police for crowd control because they think the Saints might do well in this year’s NFL playoffs.

Grumpy thought: The Saints won the NFL championship for the first time in their 43 year history in New Orleans, one of the longest droughts in sports. But let’s see, the baseball Giants moved to San Francisco in 1958 and their world championship total since is…. yep…. zero.
Although Sarah Palin criticized President Obama for using a teleprompter, it turns out she had crib notes on her hand during her “Tea Party” speech. This is shocking. Palin can read?

Sarah Palin said she might run for President in 2012. But first she has to decide on a few things. Like, if elected, who she will want as her replacement when she resigns in 2015.

And back in California, Meg Whitman has adjusted her first television commercial, where she said she had lived in California for over 30 years. Turns out she has lived in the state a total of 23 years. So her latest ad now says “many years.” But I don’t know, being off on the numbers by about 33 percent? In that way she’d fit right in in Sacramento.

In the ad she also complains about “professional politicians.” Well, this might be a first – someone putting that label on Arnold Schwarzenegger.
