    I'm down!

    New Orleans as a city is a special place that takes in people from all walks of life. Never a dull day in a city with festivals around the clock and food from like none other. You don't have to look far in professional sports who enter this community a stranger and become a part of its heart and soul. Some may never leave.

    What can Zion be for this city? Lemme give you a microcosm what's about to happen. My wife was never a huge basketball fan, maybe casual at best. For some reason Anthony Davis as a superstar never did much for her. However the last couple of years she started to get more into it. She would attend games with me occassionally (season ticket holders, wazzzupppp), but with this past season and how it unfolded, it took alot of the interest out of it for her. But suddenly, after seeing Zion's electric play and charismatic personality non stop on ESPN all year, it's like a breath of fresh air for her. He is the spark she needed to pull her back in. The thing to make her look forward to going to Pelicans games again.

    Just like for her, Zion is that spark for this franchise and this city, something to usher in a new generation of basketball fans and bring back those who may have soured on the demoralizing nature of this past season.

    Can't wait to hear his name called on draft day!

    I have to go visit family this weekend.

    Wish I could run up the bill on ESPN. I love to eat! LOL
    Actual proof Greivis Vasquez can throw Anthony Davis an Alley-OOP on an (kinda) fastbreak!

The fans absolutely loved him even though he didn't perform up to expectations of being an all time great.
    lol, winning a superbowl was a let down

    Hell no it wasn't a let down I'm saying we all expected Reggie to be Barry Sanders and he wasn't. We didn't let him not being that great of a player stop us from loving him. We still yelled Reggie Reggie Reggie as if he was the best rb of all time.

    Couldn't make the gig anyway, but the biggest effect Zion, maybe more David Griffin has had on the Pels so far...it's June and the Pels are getting equal time on all sports talk and even the evening news. There is a real buzz around town. Maybe not since the Hornets hey days.
    Thanks Pelicans Report - I get a laugh or three every day reading this thing. Hoping the magic returns to the SKC soon.
