I managed to get out there in time for the second half of the DET game and we finally got a TV in the restaurant for the PHI game, so I saw all of it.

The BUF game was at 3, so I hit up the local watering hole with sunday ticket and took on a couple of pitcher of Restoration. You ever get a hangover the same day that you got drunk? No fun.

Anyway, the Giants game is the day after my 30th B-day and my wonderful girl friend (former Houstonian and oiler fan who I have converted into a Saints fan) got us tickets. We're taking the train down and a SW flight back. Buddy Guy is playing Saturday and it's a free show, so that's on the agenda. Got some contacts that own a restaurant (anyone been to Cochon?), so we'll hit that up, too.

Get this, though: she's never been to New Orleans or a big time football game at any level. She's about to have her face melted off.
I've eaten at Cochon several times. The food has always been great and they use our wines too!

Where do you work in B'ham?

Unfortunately Mike we will not be burning up I-10 East with you this game but will be for the Giants game. We'll keep the Who-Dats going in Houston area this weekend.

We're going to the Giants game too, Buds. So are you going to a sportsbar this sunday? We'll see you on I-10 in 2 weeks. Look out Waffle House!

---My info is a bit spotty for La, but I'm not showing any major construction closures for I-10 this weekend.

--- If you normally leave Houston via loop 610, dont do it.

1. Complete closure of the loop between McCarty & 59
2. Complete closure of 610 NB at I-10. (coming NB from the Ship Channel Bridge) I'm pretty sure they'll close the ramps too and route you thru the Barrio. Say hi to all MY brothers there.
3. also the feeder rds of I-10 will be pretty fornicated between 610
and Uvalde --this is FEEDER roads only.


---But I dont show any major closures for I-10 mainlanes. 225 looks good too if you go to 146 thru Baytown & hit I-10 at Mont Belvieu.


---Of course we have the ongoing crap between Vidor and Orange on I-10. 3 Lanes are open, but you've got the TexDot Wall O' Death tm to pucker your butt there. Sometimes I travel hwy 73 thru Port Arthur just to avoid it. But watch for gators!

I know there's some ongoing work on I-10 near Lake Charles, right?
Anybody know of ongoing roadwork on I-10 on the Louisiana side?

btw, N.O. friends, my producers say there will be closures both ways on the Huey P. Long Bridge monday morning at 9am until 3.... each day next week.

Although for one of the road games we may come join you at Woodrows.

be sure and check us out here before you do. Woody's kind of
P***** us off a couple of weeks ago, and me and Ed, the Pope of the Hou-Dats have been kicking around other options.

Of course, we'd like input from all our Houston area Saints fans, and see what they have to say.

Woody's dissing y'all now? C'mon hey!

Time for the ticket at someone's house! I'd volunteer, except I'm in Austin and moving soon.

Now look at me. I'm short, poor, old, drive a beat-up-truck, and come
with much baggage.
Don't forget complete fraud. Sky???? You don't fly a plane... you sit behind a desk. You should be called DeskMike but then she might leave you.

Re: Saints Fans Gameday March down I-10

I will not be able to make the Jets game due to work but I'll be going to the Giants game. I told the people that are taking my place to scream their heads off for me during this game. Its only one of my brothers, his gf and one of my cousins so two of them are going to their first Saints game in the dome.

I personally liked Tres when we went after the Texans preseason game, what do you think of there?
