Posted By on Wed, Feb 3, 2016 at 6:04 PM

King Cake Baby meets a fan.
  • King Cake Baby meets a fan.

It's high season for New Orleans Pelicans mascot King Cake Baby — so boo to GQ for profiling KCB in an article titled "The New Orleans Pelicans King Cake Baby is Basically a War Crime."

What's the website's proof? This Vine, pretty much, in which the lovable giant humanoid plastic cake decoration homunculus infant creature startles a woman walking into Rouses:


Trew2TheGame host Chris Trew took a kinder, gentler look at the KCB, playing some baby games with the Pelicans mascot.

Y@ Speak: Carnival cruise

Posted By on Mon, Jan 4, 2016 at 3:31 PM

Now that you're bloated and round from holiday glut, you can roll right into Carnival alongside the St. Charles streetcar, as children point and laugh and roll you around like a hoop pushed by a stick. You're the spirit of Mardi Gras. This week: welcoming 2016, released from the prison of the New Orleans Saints, and Trump does Mississippi.

Y@ Speak: statuesque

Posted By on Mon, Dec 14, 2015 at 1:21 PM

The future of four Confederate monuments will likely be determined this week. Last week, their supporters and opponents squared off at City Hall — and in this week's Y@ Speak. Also: Drake is Pierre the Pelican and Brandon Browner is Oscar the Grouch.

Y@ Speak: least popular

Posted By on Mon, Dec 7, 2015 at 1:47 PM

Penalty fan Brandon Browner joins a list of least-liked New Orleans Saints along with Martin "I don't like football" Gramatica and interception machine Aaron Brooks. Browner is disliked more than parking meter rate hikes, the NRA and closing down Royal Street — all in this week's edition.

Y@ Speak: forgetting

Posted By on Mon, Nov 9, 2015 at 12:40 PM

As the Bard wrote... I have almost forgot the taste of fears.

There was once a time I'd shiver at the thought of a losing season. Now I've seen true horror: a winless Pelicans, a tortured Saints, and king cake in November. Also: Alabama rolls out the welcome wagon and Mayor Mitch Landrieu rides a bike.

Y@ Speak: All Saints, All Day

Posted By on Mon, Nov 2, 2015 at 1:00 PM


This Y@ Speak is full of ghouls 'n' goblins, from Voodoo Fest's Halloween mud monsters to presidential debates and a spooky tale of a team that scores more than 40 points... and loses. Also: The New Orleans Pelicans are off to a rough start, despite the power of candy corn.

Y@ Speak: on a pedestal

Posted By on Mon, Jul 13, 2015 at 12:38 PM


As city officials contemplate the inevitable Saddam-style teardown of the city's Confederate landmarks, Anthony Davis is on his way to getting his own statue, some day, somewhere, hopefully in all public rights of way. People are also excited about another landmark — a grocery store opening in Metairie — because wine there, so they say, is $2 yet socially acceptable to purchase. Meanwhile: Gov. Bobby Jindal, a brass band and Mardi Gras Indians walk into an anti-abortion conference...
