Thoughts on Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and having a brand new baby boy

Why does Jim Henderson always give me the chills when he makes a call like he did when Gleason made that block? I have the call he and Hokie made of the fumble recovery on my iPod and I always get the chills from that, too. He is awesome. Go Saints.
I grew up in Metairie, LA and lived in actual New Orleans for 12 years. The day that I turned 30, I moved to New Jersey and then to Easton, PA 4 years ago. As luck would have it, I was in New Orleans when Katrina approached and evacuated to Jackson, MS. Other than that, I am a Latin and history teacher at a small, independent school in NJ. I miss New Orleans a lot, think about it all the time, and try to go there whenever the work schedule allows.
