Jermon Bushrod Leaves Saints for Chicago Bears


Breesus lost one of his top protectors to free agency on Tuesday. Offensive lineman Jermon Bushrod, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, was signed by the Chicago Bears to a five-year deal. After entering the open market after the Saints didn't immediately re-sign him, the 315-pound left tackle was snapped by Da Bears on the NFL's first day of free agency signing.


Ryan Anderson Helps Hornets Survive Blazers


As the 2013 campaign starts to roll toward its end, the Hornets fan maintains a weird balance. On one hand, the sensible fan realizes the team would do well to lose every game from here out, thus securing a better draft pick. This knowledge served as the only consolation after last week’s devestating losses to the Lakers and Magic. On the other hand, god damn, winning feels good.


Hornets Sign Terrel Harris


Another rotation player out, one more scab in. With Austin Rivers’ hand injury likely keeping the struggling rookie out for the rest of the year, the Hornets have signed fringe NBA baller Terrel Harris to a 10-day contract. The 25-year-old has been a passable last man off the bench for the Miami Heat in limited minutes the past two years.


Hornets Blow Huge Lead, Lose to Lakers


by Mike Horst

The New Orleans Hornets lost another brutal game at the Hive last night as Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers’ furious comeback produced a 108 -102 win. For the second time in as many home games, the Hornets blew a big lead. New Orleans led by as many as 25 points, but it all came crashing down around them as they were only able to score 9 points in the 4th quarter.


Hornets Blow 17-Point Lead, Lose to Magic


The Hornets lost an ugly one Monday night, conceding 69 second-half points to the Orlando Magic after allowing only 36 in the first. The bees blew a 17-point lead in the process. New Orleans showed a startling lack of composure and execution down the stretch, allowing a worse team to win a game that was ours for the taking. Orlando’s 105-102 victory drops us to 21-40 for the season.


Star Guitar, Racing Legends to be Enshrined at Fair Grounds Hall of Fame


Late jockey E.J. Perrodin, owner Ray Salmen and thoroughbred Star Guitar have seen their fair share of the winner’s circle. Tonight, their notable names find a place in the Fair Grounds Hall of Fame. From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., the Fair Grounds hosts a reception in the Black and Gold Room for their impressive inductees.   


Gleason Starts Ride 2 Recovery Bike Tour


Steve Gleason is living with ALS, but the Saints hero hasn’t given up his athletic career. This morning, he got suited up in his tandem bike for Ride 2 Recovery, and the champ took off at 9am on a tour along the Gulf of Mexico. 


Hornets' Jason Smith Out For the Year


The Hornets announced Friday that fan-favorite backup forward Jason Smith will miss the rest of the season with a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Smith has been in and out of the lineup since the injury occured in December.


Vasquez Clutch as Hornets Slow Pistons, 100-95


by Mike Horst

The New Orleans Hornets beat the Detroit Pistons 100-95 at the New Orleans Arena on Friday night. The Hornets put forth a total team effort just two nights after getting demolished by the Oklahoma City Thunder. The win moves the bees to 21-39 on the season.


Thunder Wreck Hornets, 119-74


It’s hard enough to play in Oklahoma City with a rested, injury-free roster. Going the day after a tough loss to Brooklyn, and without Eric Gordon or Anthony Davis — that’s a recipe for disaster. The Thunder demolished the Hornets to the tune of 119-74, dropping us to 20-39 for the season. Russell Westbrook scored 29 points, while Kevin Durant notched his third triple-double with 18 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.
