Payton, Saints confident they can fix red-zone failures - NFL - ESPN

Payton, Saints confident they can fix red-zone failures - NFL - ESPN: METAIRIE, La. -- Saints tight end Ben Watson grinned when former teammate Jimmy Gaham's name came up, saying he wasn't at all "sick" of hearing how much New Orleans' offense might miss the 6-foot-7 receiving target inside an opponent's 20-yard line.

"However much time Jimmy was here, he was a prominent red-zone threat," Watson said. "We threw fades to him all day. So if he was still here, we probably would be doing those same things. But would we be winning more games? I don't know. We didn't win that many games last year."

In a season-opening 31-19 loss at Arizona on Sunday, the revamped Saints were competitive until late in the fourth quarter, when they had the ball and trailed by less than a touchdown.

New Orleans gained more 400 yards from scrimmage, including 355 yards passing by Drew Brees.

New Orleans is still vulnerable to another big storm | Public Radio International

New Orleans is still vulnerable to another big storm | Public Radio International: Nevertheless, van Heerden remains concerned. “The Corps of Engineers is claiming that Katrina is a one-in-400-year storm,” he says. “In reality, the statistic should be that Katrina is a one-in-30-year storm — and it was a storm that actually missed New Orleans.”

“If the levees had held, we wouldn't be talking about Katrina in Louisiana, we would be talking about the devastation on the Mississippi coast,” he explains. “Because the storm actually made landfall in Mississippi, not Louisiana. ...�Katrina might have been the trigger, but [in New Orleans] this was a man-made catastrophe.”

Pensacola Dragon Boat Festival returns with a boom

Pensacola Dragon Boat Festival returns with a boom: The Pensacola Dragon Boat Festival and Race returned to Bayview Park on Saturday for its second year of racing, barbeques and community camaraderie.

Thousands of people meandered through rows of booths and food trucks in the shaded grass of the park and walked down along the shoreline of Bayou Texar to get a good view of the dragon boat races.

The dragon boats are long, canoe-shaped vessels propelled by groups of 20 rowers with long oars. The dragon boats originated in southern China and have been raced as a group sport for more than 2,000 years.
