Eye on New Orleans

Probably because Saints is playing the Super Bowl 44 this weekend, the nation’s attention also focuses on the city of New Orleans. The city has been struggling since Katrina. I was in New Orleans for the Special Event Show in January. I noticed the city was quite different from the last time I was there in 2003 because I no longer felt the excitement from the local residences.

Super Bowl 44 could be a life time opportunity of changing people’s perceptions of New Orleans. I cannot predict the result of the game, but I believe no matter what the result will be, New Orleans has won the hearts of Americans. The city is delivering a message to the world --- New Orleans is coming back.

The videos today were downloaded from ABCNews.com. The video on the top is about the city of New Orleans; the other is about some snack ideas for the game (you may get an idea from this video of what it takes to work in a stadium and arena as well). Let’s enjoy the game tomorrow!
