Today in NOLA 3.8.17


Tonight, venture down Frenchmen to see the Jazz Vipers and the Uptown Jazz Orchestra both do their thing. Or, indulge your 90s nostalgia and see alt-rockers Jimmy Eat World perform at the Joy Theater. On this day in history, the first franchise season ticket to the New Orleans Saints was purchased in 1967. Now, more to do this Wednesday. 


Hoop Schemes


The Pelicans will most likely not be making a trip to the playoffs this year. However, New Orleans hoops squad will be making a trip to China in the fall. On Tuesday (3.29) night, the NBA announced that the Pels and the Houston Rockets will face off in a pair of Asian exhibition matches.


Melo's Little Friend (Video)


The Pelicans notched the rare win last night defeating the NY Knicks 99-91. However, the highlight of the evening might have been when Knickerbockers superstar Carmelo Anthony received an unexpected on court visit from a child.


Low Brow: Davis Could Lose 23 MIl


Anthony Davis’ season came to a disappointing end on Sunday (3.20) when the Pelicans announced that the franchise’s star is done for the season due to injury. The Brow is most likely just as frustrated as Birds fans whose playoff hopes are all but destroyed at this point. After all, Davis stands to lose 23 million dollars on account of his early departure.


Sack of Goal

Davis Shines, But Pels Feel the Heat in OT Loss



Christmas:NBA::Thanksgiving:NFL. And today, the Pelicans played in their first December 25th game. Ultimately, the Birds lost a heartbreaker to the Orlando Heat 94-88 in overtime.


Grounded: Pels' Perkins Out Indefinitely


The new Pelicans are starting to feel a lot like the old Hornets. After dropping their first three games of the season, the team announced some more bad news on Sunday (11.01). Offseason acquisition Kendrick Perkins will be out indefinitely due to a right pectoral injury.

Birds Lay Egg In Opener, But Look Ahead



The Birds are the word and it’s time to take flight. The Pelican’s season kicked off against the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday (10.27) night. They lost against the defending champions, 111-95. Fortunately it’s an 82 game season and in no way, fate has been written. 


Shorty & the Tall Men (Watch New Pelicans Open)


The Pelicans have plenty fodder for highlight reels, but when it comes to a soundtrack, the edit suite had to call in a native New Orleanian. Today, Fox Sports rolled out a new opening segment featuring Trombone Shorty to air during the Birds’ 2015 season.


Ballin': Pels' Roster Ready


The NBA season starts on Tuesday (10.27) and the Pelicans are just about ready. Today, the team announced a final round of three cuts to bring the roster below the league mandated maximum.


Country Roads Take Pels Home


After Thursday (8.13) night’s retro ‘Aints preseason opener, many WhoDats are questioning the team’s training regimens. However, Team Benson is doubling down on the system. This weekend, Executive VP Mickey Loomis announced that the group’s other team, the Pelicans, will also move their training camp to The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, W.V.
