I don’t always comment on events immediately. It’s never my intent to “Be the First” to have an opinion.   I tend to need it sit and simmer for a moment. My initial reactions can be a little extra for anyone who didn’t grow up with mental illness in the family.  However, its time I just went ahead and spoke on the Bayou Shade  New Orleans cast on the country with the Super Bowl Blackout.

 All the good New Orleanians are keeping their mouths shut out of loyalty,  but I’m not gonna co-sign on this mediocrity with them.  I’m not sure what I’m embarrassed by most.  The fact that the lights went off in the dome on the single most important event it’s hosted since it’s renovations, or the fact that the locals seem to think it was no big deal. (which it kinda was since the game was what everyone came for, but I suppose as long as Bourbon street is still pouring and the strippers are still disrobing it was a success all the same right?)  Makes me feel like I’m being raised in one of those struggle homes where I’m the only one that wants better out of life.   I’m not saying it’s the end of the world or anything, but I know if I had been planning a party for years and the power goes out for an hour the night of, I’d be more than a little shame.  But hey, Its New Orleans and if there one thing I know doesn’t exist here its Shame!  The host is at least supposed to fake a polite apology to show guests this isn’t how we get down on the regular, but New Orleanians were like “Y’all lucky we got em cut back on.  We could’ve just went back to bourbon.”  In the end I’m not say this was a huge scandal or any reason for us not to get future Super Bowls, but its the little things guys….the little things.  Like keeping the lights on and the sewage unclogged!  Never give em anything extra to laugh at!
