Minneapolis Beats New Orleans for 2018 Super Bowl


Updated 5 p.m.

As Jim Henderson called it, hell froze over when the Saints beat Minnesota to head to the Super Bowl. In 2018, the Big Game itself is going to the tundra. The NFL chose Minneapolis over New Orleans Tuesday to host Super Bowl LII in 2018.


Winged Fixation: WOW Cafe Talks Super Bowl Food


Louisianans are not shy about cooking for a big game, and on any given Saturday in Baton Rouge, one will see tailgate rigs bigger than most hunting camps. However, with the Saints out of the playoffs and the weather chilly, many New Orleanians are simply ordering out for today's show down. Wings are the most popular Super Bowl food in America, and NoDef got some pointers from Paul Ballard, founder and co-owner WOW Cafe: American Grill and Wingery. 


Steve Gleason to Be Featured in Super Bowl Ad (VIDEO)


Drew Brees has been representing the Saints on TV all week, but it'll be Steve Gleason's turn for some Super Bowl airtime during the game. The Black and Gold hero will be featured in a Microsoft commercial during the Big Game, according to the Saints.


Drew Brees Talks Sherman, Extra Points on David Letterman (VIDEO)


The Saints aren't in the big game and we're not hosting, but New Orleans is still has a place in Super Bowl hype. A King Cake baby already made an appearance in the NFL's pre-Super Bowl late night talk show blitz. Now, it's Breesus' turn.

Boente’s Office announced this week.


Scott Fujita Retires from NFL -as a New Orleans Saints Player


Scott Fujita came back to the Saints, then promptly retired from football Monday morning. Just so there was no shortage of drama to the scene, the transaction was all carried off from 11,000 ft. above sea level in Macchu Picchu.


Ravens' Star Receiver Jacoby Jones Helping at Home


Jacoby Jones, the New Orleans born Baltimore Ravens player who made a record breaking 109-yard run during this year's Super Bowl, was present at today's City Council meeting, to announce a donation to the New Orleans Recreation Development Commission (NORD).
