Figure of the Day 5 Billion, and it's not the government

This isn’t news. But it still amazes me. Bookies clean up on every Super Bowl. All the “smart” money I knew bet the Colts. Some took the under, but I bet most took the over.

The party after the game on Bourbon Street must have been amazing.

Everyone knows where to go in NOLA. Commander’s Palace, and Emeril’s are great. Next time you are there, here are three cool spots you ought to try. One is Ignatius They have the best muffaletta I have had. If you don’t want all the bread, they make a nice muffaletta salad too. Another spot off the beaten path has been there for decades. It’s called Dookey Chase. They have some tremendous fried chicken, and some of the best gumbo you will ever have. Kind of historical place too. Bank in the days of segregation, this is where the black entertainers and cognoscenti came to chow down. It was wiped out by Katrina, but they are back in business. The third place that would be a fun spot to try is the new canteen at the National World War Two and D-Day Museum. Neat little spot. The museum there is awesome. Good way to get out of the summah heat and stay out of Pat O’Briens for a little while!

    I said it when I saw the initial line come out at 3.5. The line stunk and Vegas was looking for Colts money. Gamblers who bet against Vegas are the biggest morons in the world. You can’t keep the lights turned on all night by selling a $30 steak.
