Route, Weather for Crescent City Classic


After all the Good Friday crawfish is digested, the Crescent City Classic is set to send New Orleanians scurrying through the streets to get them hungry for Easter. To make way for the thousands of runners that will head out for the 36th annual 10K, the City is shutting down streets from the French Quarter to City Park. 


Champ Bailey Signs with Saints


When it comes to the annual free agency frenzy, the New Orleans Saints' primary focus has been secondary. To complement last month's surprise signing of safety Jairus Byrd, the Black and Gold inked a two-year deal Friday with veteran cornerback Champ Bailey.


WWE Stars Dress Up for NOMA Charity Auction


by Hilary Ervin

Hollywood celebrities, Mayor Mitch, and professional athletes from the WWE and the New Orleans Saints attended the Superstars for Kids Charity Auction Red Carpet Party hosted at the New Orleans Museum of Art last night. Complemented by a successful online auction at Charitybuzz.com/WWE, the live event let bidders smack down a whole lot of raw, hard cash for the Brees Dream Foundation and Boys and Girls clubs around the world.


Big Easy Rollergirls Ditch Wheels for Dance-Off (PHOTOS)


by Brandon Robert
The Big Easy Rollergirls have a busy offseason, and it includes more than scrimmages. BERG hosted this year's Solid Gold Dance-Off last night at the Eiffel Society. Proceeds went to the Audubon Institute. The Camel Toe Lady Steppers took third place, the Nola Cherry Bombs took second, and the Star-Steppin' Cosmonaughties came in first place for the second year in a row.  

Pelicans Tune Out Jazz, 102-95


The Jazz were in the opposing uniforms Friday night, but it was the New Orleans Pelicans who were forced to improvise. Despite an Anthony Davis injury to go with all the other wounded birds, a cookin' Tyreke Evans took command to help the team extend their winning streak to five games with a 102-95 victory at the Smoothie King Center.


Short-Handed Pelicans Hold off Clippers, 98-96


by Will Winston

Next man up. It’s a common coaching cliché that gets thrown around in sports circles. It’s supposed to instill the principle of unity in team sports. Whether you’re the star player or the last person on the bench, you’re supposed to fill the needed role.


Jimmy Graham Dunks Would End Under New NFL Rule


The NFL often encourages basketball references when it comes to Jimmy Graham, but apparently the league feels dunking is taking things a bit too far. The league has been weighing whether to make dunking the ball through the uprights a penalty, which would force the Saints tight end to change up his touchdown celebration.


Pelicans' Comeback Rips Nets, 109-104 (OT)


by Will Winston

Down 22 with 10 minutes left in the third quarter, the New Orleans Pelicans seemed like they were toast. Not light, golden brown toast, but the kind of toast that’s been forgotten in the toaster for hours and crisps apart when you try to pick it up. Yet in the NBA, no lead is ever a safe lead, and at that moment the Pels proceeded to stage their second largest comeback in franchise history.


Pelicans Eclipse Heat, 105-95


by Will Winston

The Pelicans and the Heat matched up last night amidst smaller deviations from their overall play this season. The Heat, who own the second-best record in the East, came into New Orleans having lost five out of their past nine games, while the Pelicans, who are out of playoff contention, had won five of their last eight games due to tremendous play from Anthony Davis.
