Fleur-De-Links Saturday, October 30: Riding the Crazy Train To All Hallow's Eve

It's a slow Saturday news day...

As I put this together, I just start to wonder if there's an official name for the eve of All Hallow's Eve. (Yeah - it's called October 30.)

Today we've got more final practice and injury reports, a wwl article from a radio interview with Pierre about his injury, some blips and blurbs from ESPN's NFL blog network, details on the Guiness World Record visit to the Dome to certify the world's largest costume gathering, and a story about Steelers with NOLA connections. The video section includes a couple of game previews and a clip of Drew Brees.

Speaking of costumes, I hope the Saints show up as a good football team tomorrow night.

In case you're wondering why Ozzy's the picture today, he recently tried to set an official Guiness World Record of the loudest and longest scream at a Dodgers-Angels game this summer. Another recent World Record attempt at a sporting event was the most Snuggies worn at one event.

Go here and here to read how they turned out.
