 Good Morning NOLA! Keep an eye out for scattered thunderstorms today.  There is some rain moving in from the west.  It would not hurt to have the umbrella handy just in case.  The rain rain has been downgraded from fifty percent to forty percent but it is pretty cloudy so just be aware.  Our high today is seventy-six degrees with the low for tonight only abou ten degrees cooler at sixty-seven once the sun goes down.  For me personally it looks like I might be catching up on my writing today with quick strolls around the Quarter in between showers.  other than that it looks ike we have a super week shaking out leading up to the big Mardi Gras weekend.  There is plenty of sun in the forecast and only minimal chance of scattered showers possibly Saturday.  I think we will be fine for the week and weekend coming as well.  Don’t forget to practice you line,  “Throw me something Mister!”   Here’s wishing you a good haul of various Mardi Gras throws. See you in NOLA!

Swing Back In New Orleans (Hurricane Katrina Tribute)

UPDATE:You can now download the free mp3 at mikegreca.com. I will be recording a studio version next week for iTunes.
I wrote this for the people of New Orleans shortly after Katrina hit. Now as the five year anniversary approaches, I would like to share it with them. If anyone knows Harry Connick Jr. I would love to pitch this to him!!!! Just imagine him on keys :)

Lyrics:
And now we all know what it means
to miss New Orleans
especially if you called it home
Lake Pontchartrain went and flooded them streets
of Louis Armstrong’s town
We’ll build it brighter than it’s ever been
Well I swear we’re gonna get the swing back in New Orleans again

Mardi Gras, she’ll be boppin real soon
and crooners crooning to that creole moon
Street cats playin them old Orleans tunes
So hard to not sing along
We’ll build it brighter than it’s ever been
Well I swear we’re gonna get the swing back in New Orleans again

No storm ain’t ever gonna keep
them horns from blowin, people tappin their feet
I bet if old Satchmo were here he’d sing
“Oh, what a wonderful world”
So now we all know what it means
to miss New Orleans
Some how it just feels like home
We’ll build it brighter than it’s ever been
Well I swear were gonna get everyone to sing
“We’ll bring that swing back in New Orleans”

Mr. Carriere and Knucklehead

New Orleans

When you come to the New Orleans French Quarter you can’t help but notice the colorful mule drawn carriages throughout the Quarter streets. A relaxing buggy ride is often just the thing for foot weary sight seers, history buffs or romantic couples who want to snuggle a little closer than walking will allow.

These rides also include a narrated tour of the historic French Quarter and the renowned “Cities of the Dead”. No matter how much I think I know about New Orleans there is always more I don’t know. I love visiting with a particular buggy driver and his sidekick, Knucklehead. A virtual walking history book this guy knows his stuff. With thirty-five years of being a NOLA tour guide under his belt Mr. Carriere is as much a Big Easy attraction as the landmarks people flock to the Crescent City to see.

Twelve bucks for a thirty minute ride with someone who knows the streets and the stories as well as Mr. Carriere and Knucklehead is a hell of a deal. If you have never done the buggy ride thing or even if you have, treat yourself to a half hour with a favorite French Quarter fixture. Let Mr. Carriere take you on a scenic ride and regale you with NOLA tales of the past and present. Look for the lavender colored buggy parked in front of Jackson Square, feed Knucklehead a carrot and take in the sights and sounds of the historic Vieux Carre’ with a master storyteller.

The cadence of Knucklehead’s hoofs and timbre of Mr. Carriere’s voice are perfect compliments to the cacophony of sounds that resonant through the French Quarter. With plenty of tours to choose from this one covers all the bases. Informative but interesting, entertaining and amusing this is definitely one for your New Orleans “To Do” list. Enjoy the ride!

Why is New Orleans geting so much attention?

Not to be unsympathetic, but people all over the country lost their homes in natural disasters at different times during the year. So why is New Orleans so special?
So, people who lost homes in Florida should be ignored? Do you say "too bad" to them, give New Orleans everything?

I am sure you don’t mean to be unsympathetic, but that is exactly what you are. Yes! People do loose their homes year long due to natural disasters. But if you can’t figure out why New Orleans has received so much attention, then there is no point in explaining it. I would only hope that you find some compassion.

*Edit**

When other areas of the country are hit by natural disasters, the media does cover it. The reason for the amount of coverage in New Orleans is because an ENTIRE CITY was devastated. Thousands of people were evacuated to other cities. This is on a grand scale!

That is like saying, why did the media give so much attention to Los Angeles after the Rodney King verdict? People vanalize every day. <–The entire black population was in an uproar over the verdict.

You come off as if you are upset with the people of New Orleans as well as the media.

What restaurants do you recommend in the French Quarter?

What reasonably price restaurants are good in the French Quarter?

Some more affordable spots are:
Port O Call
Napoleon House
Fiorella’s
Louisiana Pizza Kitchen
Johnny’s Po-Boys
Gumbo Shop
Petunia’s
Cafe Beignet
Coop’s Place
Angeli

If you want to try one upscale place I would try to make it to Bayona (of course you could always try one of the Brennens or Emrils restaurants too).


Golf Betting Has Its Risks And Rewards

Probably the only thing more difficult and frustrating than gaining a degree of proficiency at playing golf is trying to make a buck betting golf. As the PGA Tour tees it up for the start of another season this month, it’s a sober fact of betting that no matter how you slice it–into the rough, into the water, into the woods, beyond the hazard–earning a profit through golf betting may be the most absurdly arduous and unrewarding task facing a prospective sports bettor.

Consider that if you place a future book wager on a major tennis tournament where there are 128 entrants, such as Wimbledon or the US Open, your choice has to beat just seven players. The other 120 are eliminated by someone else.

The same thing happens in the NFL playoffs where a team need beat just three or four opponents to claim a Super Bowl championship. The NBA and Major League Baseball have similar formats, where most of the teams are eliminated by someone other than the eventual winner.

About the closest thing to golf is a NASCAR Nextel Cup race, where your driver has to beat 42 other competitors.

But a typical golf tournament features about 150 players, meaning the man on whom you placed your wager, has to beat every one of them.

Given those overwhelming odds, then, why play?

The answer, of course, is because the payoffs can be so large. For example, of the 48 regular season events on the 2006 PGA Tour, 17 of them were won by players returning a three digit reward to the bettor. An additional nine tournaments went to players whose odds ranged from 40/1 to 80/1.

The list of bountiful winners is headed by J.B. Holmes, who captured the FBR Open, Feb. 5, and Chris Couch, who won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, April 30, each at odds of 250/1.

Kirk Triplett (Chrysler Classic of Tucson, Feb. 26); Aaron Baddeley (MCI Heritage, April 16); Brett Wetterich (Byron Nelson Championship, May 14); Ben Curtis (Booz Allen Classic, June 25 and 84 Lumber Classic, Sept. 17); Dean Wilson (The International, Aug. 13); and Eric Axley (Valero Texas Open, Sept. 24), all scored at odds of 150/1.

Last year’s winners at 125/1 included Rod Pampling (Bay Hill Invitational, March 19); Stephen Ames (The Players Championship, March 26); Jeff Maggert (FedEx St. Jude Classic, May 28); Carl Pettersson (the Memorial Tournament, June 4); J.J. Henry (Buick Championship, July 2); and Corey Pavin (US Bank Championship, July 30).

Nail just one of the above winners and you’re good for a free ride betting the PGA Tour every week for two to five years, depending on the size payout of that one winner.

So what’s the problem? Just bet a longshot each week.

Well, for starters, exactly how do you find a J.B. Holmes or a Chris Couch? When Holmes won the FBR Open there were 109 other golfers offered at odds of 100/1 or more, including 51 at odds of 250/1 or greater. In fact, if you were looking for a real longshot, there were 35 golfers who were offered at betting odds of 300/1 or more, including Tony Rohlik and Ian Leggatt, each at a life-changing 750/1. How in the name of Titleist could you isolate Holmes, who won in just his fourth PGA start?

It was a similar situation when Couch won in New Orleans. At that tournament, 26 other golfers were listed at 250/1 and 19 more were quoted at odds of 300/1 or greater.

Given the difficulty in isolating a longshot, maybe betting the favorite is the better way to go.

Well, no.

Favorites won just nine events last year and, with the exception of Phil Mickelson’s triumph at odds of 7/1 in the BellSouth Classic, April 2, the other eight favorites all were named Tiger Woods.

Woods, in fact, won eight of the 15 PGA Tour events he entered last year, meaning you could have realized a modest profit by betting on the world’s No. 1 player in each start. But for his career, Woods has won 54 of 200 tournaments, or just over one in every four tournaments he’s entered, so you’d have to average odds of 3/1 to break even.

That’s not going to happen.

So how do you win betting golf?

“I don’t know anyone who bets golf consistently and wins,” conceded a Nevada bookmaker who asked he not be identified. “It’s really a fool’s errand. The only way someone can win betting golf is to hit a longshot and never bet again.”

Yeah, right.
