The Vanishing N'Awlins Scene


Legitimate question: Is there any point to having sports teams in New Orleans anymore? The Hornets can't draw any fans after just two years in town, the Saints stink and are hated by the five Louisianans who care and now they're the top candidate for the inevitable NFL move back to Los Angeles. Saints owner Tom Benson says he plans to stay, even though the city won't build him a new stadium and attendance is way down. New Orleans has never seemed like much of a sports town to us, though, to be honest, the whole city kind of scares us: We've always been nervous we'd drunkenly step on a voodoo priestess' grave and wake up a frog.
