Y@ Speak: we have a very good basketball team

Posted By on Mon, Oct 12, 2015 at 1:17 PM

Dear The Football,

Ah, The Big Sport, my mistress, my muse, my hypertension-causing and blood pressure medicine-filling, identity-making thing that hates me. It's time for me to move on to something that won't make me a terrible person to be around or derail the work week when my team loses. I've packed away my punny T-shirts, my spiky-haired wig visor and cargo shorts filled with pizza rolls and good-luck charms (more pizza rolls). I found a new love. One that will set free the shackles of heart attacks every third down and will likely have a good shot at getting into the playoffs. Her name, is Basketball. One day, NOLA Football, you may lure me back with those luscious locks and that sandwich-loving, record-breaking mayor-king. Until then, po-boy jambalaya gumbo second line nawlins.

Yours truly,

... this week's Y@ Speak reflects on love letters, Hell Yes Fest, the New Orleans Saints, a drunk Gumby, and two New Orleans legends.
