    Dad was an NOPD and did regular details at the Superdome. At that time, the Dome allowed the police on details to bring their young kids to the games. We had our own little special bench to sit on your football games, our own small section for baseball games (Pelicans: minor league) and near mid-court seats for the basketball games. Pistol was amazing and I still remember hearing the dome roar of  "Piiisstooooool PETE!"  I was in BSA at the time and crafted my own personal burlap school bookbag with Jazz stenciled one side and Saints on the other :)

    P.S.  We were just discussing Pistol last night with friends.

    I think people should be allowed to do anything they want. We haven't tried that for a while. Maybe this time it'll work. -George Carlin

      I really miss it .....

      Heck I recall camping out for a week to see Duke play LSU. I know things like this would not be possible now, but Dale Brown, the coach, sent us kegs of beer.

      I mean it was a gosh darn party.

      Duke beat us by like 30 that day, but alas I wouldn't change a thing :).

      When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.
