Grab a go-cup and try not to annoy everyone around you. Also this week: current Hornet Anthony Davis, former Hornet Chris Paul and the rest of Team USA basketball pick up some Olympics gold, Romney picks his veep (not Bobby Jindal) and tweeters describe plenty of non-annoying "only in New Orleans" moments.
