During my layover in Charlotte, I received a text from The Rick telling me that there would be a huge craps session at 1 and that I was invited to a tailgate before the game. Looks like The Rick was trying to play nice in order to make it into this blog, since he and I weren't getting along a few weeks prior. Well, it worked.
Saints taking the field
Harry Connick Jr. on the float
Brett Favre and the Vikings offense at work
Drew Brees and the Saints offense at work
Sit in these seats and you can plummet to your death - YIKES!!!
The Saints defeated the Vikings 14-9. The should've defeated the Vikings 20-9, but the kicker missed to field goals left... LACES OUT!
After the game, I walked in the heat with the masses towards the casino. The Rick met me there and we played craps til about 3:30AM. I won!!!! **** FYI - If you're not going to place odds behind your pass line bet, you shouldn't be playing craps. After a quick burger at Fuddrucker's I was off to the airport to head back home.
Fun little 14 hour New Orleans adventure:
1) Saints won
2) I won
3) Happy birthday, Ricky!
