THE

Defender Picks

 

Today in NOLA: 5.07.15


New Orleans is falling back into her regular routine. Today’s events feature a lineup of local favorites. On this day in 1862, Union soldiers defeated the defenders of Baton Rouge in the Civil War and claimed the Red Stick as their own. Now, more to do this Thursday. 


Today in NOLA: 4.09.15


French Quarter Fest starts today. Later in the evening, Tricia Boutte plays after hours at the Ogden and there is a social bike ride. If you’re going to stay in and make groceries, be sure to stop by the farmers’ market. On this day in 1864, the Battle of Pleasant Hill led to a Union victory in Louisiana. Now, more to do this Thursday. 


New Saints Uniforms Look a Lot Like the Old


The NFL took a break from targeting the Saints today to release new uniforms for all 32 of its teams. Seeing as how the Boys in Black and Gold are still, in fact, a member of said league, their uniforms were included in the "Elite 51" update. Unlike during their college football redesign that caused such a stir, Nike clearly took care not to change any of the looks too drastically. Only the Saints themselves will likely notice the change, the ligher weight of the game wear, and the “system where the baselayer, padding, jersey and pant work in concert with each other.” Pierre Thomas will clearly be disappointed that there’s no pouch designed for Christmas bows.
