I just got an invite to hang with my sister & her husband at a friend of their's house with a balcony right over the parade route tomorrow night. So my fiancee, her daughter and I are striking out in an hour, driving over night from Greensboro, NC to Slidell, should arrive there about dawn, take a nap, then off to NOLA we go!!!
(.....I don't want to say any more than this in addition: a Saints player lives next door to the friend and it has been suggested to me that this individual will be at the party that I'm attending - not naming anyone, and I'm NOT going to be a "typical fan" and make an @$$ out of myself, but if possible to do so without being an obnoxious fan, I'm hoping to get a photo or two of myself with him - is it cool to post that kind of stuff here?)
It's 800 miles to New Orleans, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of twinkies (I don't smoke..), it's dark out, and we're wearing sun glasses...
