Drew Shore's road to the NHL may reach its goal sooner rather than later. The United States National Team Development Program star has already committed to the University of Denver to play his collegiate pucks, a place where his parents both attended law school and he and his brothers cut their teeth on the ice at Pioneer hockey camps. Drew gives Jookt a look into the life of a top-tier athlete on the most important day of the week: gameday.

Ed moved to New Orleans because of a new job. Homelessness was never part of the plan. Even with a college education he can't find work.
Ed talked about the New Orleans Mission recent decision to charge people $5 a night. Yes, $5 is not a lot of money. To most people anyway. When you are homeless $5 can often be a fortune out of reach.
There is a lot of controversy over this "pay to stay" charge. One person who works in New Orleans homeless service said the Mission is out of money and had no other choice. That I hope should get your attention as homeless service organizations around the country are faced with more demand and far less support.
Ed openly talks about being an alcoholic. Most people don't understand it's nearly impossible to stay sober while living on the streets. Imagine you had to go to the bathroom outside in public. Not just once after a ball game, but all of the time. You'd want to drink to forget too. Distributed by Tubemogul.

Half of our budget is airfare and hotel. Dining at fine restaurants is not a big priority at all but we obviously have to eat. Any tips to eat inexpensively? I obviously plan to to take full advantage of the free continental breakfast but does anyone know of any early bird specials at french quarter restaurants or other tips?
The coupons at the first link below might help… There’s $15 off at Dominique’s (2 entrees), and 1/2 off your second entree at Cajun Cabin… also $25 for 3 appetizers and a glass of wine at Ralph’s (add another appetizer and drink and you’ve got dinner for two).
Check out the second link for some more meal and drink deals… There’s an early-bird special at Brigsten’s, FREE mussels at La Cote, and other deals.
And there’s more on citysearch – Best of New Orleans cheap eats (third link)… Tripadvisor agrees with the bulk of the list, and adds a couple of others (fourth link)
No matter what city you’re in, you can usually find deals by asking at the front desk – Only tourists go to the overpriced glitzy tourist spots… ask where the locals go for a good meal and you’ll get the best food deals the city has to offer (usually).
Enjoy your trip – New Orleans is one of the greatest cities in the US!
I got a cross for my bday that looks exactly like th symbol of th new orlan saints and i wanted to know what exactly it stands for.
It is the "Fleur de Lis" or "the flower of life" in French. It is a traditional symbol here in Louisiana, since so much of our state descends from the French Canadians who settled here centuries ago.
Inside the New Orleans Saints training camp facility, where the administrative offices are, they have a galss mural of some the of the great Saints players. Like Archie Manning and Ricky Jackson. I just don’t know who wore the 21 and 46 numbers that were good. So who are they?
Thx in advance.
Archie Manning wore 46 and Ricky Jackson wore 21
For many people in post-Katrina New Orleans, religious faith is one of the only ways to keep hope alive. Explore visits a Baptist church right in the heart of the damaged city, where the soulful music of Larry â??Loveâ? Hamilton helps to soothe the pain of the tragedy and awaken the spirit within.

As I was walking up to the area in New Orleans where Dave and around a dozen other homeless people were sitting on a sidewalk the local police were making them move. At first I thought how rude. It was over 100 degrees and they were trying to find shade by a local church. But then on another street the officer was nicely talking to the homeless people and telling them an alternative location. Turns out the church does not want homeless people on their sidewalk. Well, that's an easy fix. Open the door and allow them to cool off inside. But that's another story.
Dave says life on the streets is "hot, dirty, grimy". He talks about the local rescue mission charging $5 per night. There has been lots of controversy about this. On my last night in NOLA I was told by someone in the know that the reasoning behind this is because of budget concerns. The mission is out of money and had to make this change to stay open. Still seems kind of off to me. Especially if you charge people $5 to attend a church … Distributed by Tubemogul.
