Weekend Picks: The Battle of New Orleans… in the Dome

Remembering history and making history, all in one weekend

Whew! We made it past New Year’s Day and the start of Carnival last week! But there’s no time to waste, because Sunday is the game we’ve been waiting for, when the Saints (hopefully) blow out the Eagles again!

This week’s picks include remembering history with the Battle of New Orleans and gearing up to make history again with the Saints!
