Gah this always hurts my eyes. Don't think of it as "spicy". It's flavorful food and can be as spicy as you want by adding hot sauce to it. It's certainly not spicy like Indian food is. But this is way off-topic.

One of my dreams is to be able to attend a New Orleans Saints game in your Superdome. I understand from this message board that it is very loud there.

When American Football comes to Wembley Stadium it is so bloody hell loud.

The only British crowd I have ever heard that is as loud as when American Football performs here is when we have our soccer championships.

I also would like to try some of your Cajun food I understand that it is quite spicy and good. We have spicy food here but it is from the rather large Indian population.

My company has a presence at a large corporate gathering in New Orleans in October every year at the Breakbulk Conference at your convention center.

Perhaps I can arrange a travel there during that month so I can attend a New Orleans Saints game.


I don't know how to get tickets there though.


The American Football game here in Wembley is basically sold out already according to Ticketmaster.

The schedule should be finalized shortly. Stay in touch with folks here - You should have no trouble getting all the advice and info you need (and perhaps even an "in" on a ticket).

New Orleans has a reputation for its hospitality and SR is a fine extension of that principle.

I am sorry for that comment as I am still acquiring the appropriate vernacular for your region of the States.

I have been listening to your WWL radio station online as per an earlier suggestion.

These blokes are quite animated. I don't know who they are but one of these chaps is named Bobby A-Bear. Sorry if I misspelled his name.

Do all people in New Orleans speak like that?

Glad you are a Saints fan buddy.

I am surprised Halliburton has never sent you here.

Two words: Deepwater Horizon.

Halliburton sends me to the difficult linguistic regions.

Yes that was quite a tragedy for your coastline.

Unfortunately BP has a similar performance here and throughout Europe as well.

No, all people don't speak like those 2. Bobby Hebert is a cajun from a town south and west of New Orleans. Or "Nyawlens" as he says. It's like around London where even though everyone speaks English, there's many dialects and accents. Some of the accents are unique to the area the person is from.

Bobby is a former QB of the Saints from the late 80's-90's. And even though his last name is spelled, "He-bert", the way you spelled it is how is sounds phonetically. You'll find that with a lot of last names from that part of the country.

I was referring to Halliburton's role in the failed cementing job that caused 5 million barrels of oil to spill into the Gulf of Mexico. But nevermind.

GO SAINTS!

When I think about Bobby Hebert, I think about this clip:

Bobby Hebert goes nuts at a New Orleans Saints game - YouTube

I love the reaction from the guy in blue.

Roger Goodell sees in himself two legacies: 1) To reduce ex-player litigation (read: "players' safety) and 2) Bring American Football to a wider international audience (read: England).

He's going to have to be willing to sacrifice #2 in order to accomplish #1.

Good God. THis could be one of the best threads ever. Hope this guy can make it down for a game and someone could document. Epic.

I remember that game at Wembley quite well.

Whenever one of the defensive players hit the player on the other team really hard everyone in the crowd cheered very loud in approval.

It was quite entertaining.
