I'm an assistant. Busiest man. Career and come home half the stuff that. And yet joining us up in the top of the box -- explode if somebody who's got even more kids than we've got. But he has a staff to help on the lieutenant governor great state of Louisiana Jay Darden. Hey man the thing with this will appreciate you taking time -- -- at the only sad thing is that you still got to Wear a suit this side do I haven't -- on how I took my code also to be added to. Super Bowl boulevard it was hot out there day it was a beautiful it's a beautiful day but he got got hot out there you got a great view from here that a goal you really get to see them the whole media center at work. I tell you one thing to -- like -- I mean they've got. They've got so much stuff crammed them into a small space and yet this faces huge compare -- talk Christian and pocono -- these guys. When they were up in Indianapolis last year. And it's like back cut back then it was it was. Just so much smaller so much more intense they had one door in and out to get out there so they were always crammed -- -- somebody. And yet we're spread out all over the place and it still wall to -- well you know it's by far the biggest media center that they had any game hanging in you can walk through here and they're saying great things about New Orleans will be from. Hawaii all the way to new York and every point in between they're all these -- as. For doing their radio shows like you do and having great things to say about the hospitality and their experience here in Louisiana runs good -- notebook. Look over there by the front doors when you do come in they have a pavilion it's you know just. New York New Jersey going we're going to be here next year they pass it out take bourse took it from hold us up. They got these famous black and white Jolie's black and white cookies. In -- from the cameras that we are on on on line here. Streaming on line. Those are the ones made famous by signed built on the site builder to show about nothing yeah zone and up. So but -- is set up over there and they also got. Cookies from the -- -- -- they got to have CNN big anime that's hot dogs if you wanted to impress -- watch -- bring -- some counties that would have been good well when Louisiana got the -- the year before there's going to be a presence because it's important kind of -- the appetite to come to New -- -- -- hoping to get together they don't know what cookies and and you know they -- brought -- Coney -- man you know I'm -- -- I'm here -- you've got to compete with a lucky dogs at least you know the cookies and ice but -- -- -- it's all about authenticity and having people understand what's unique in great adventure Stater -- city and that's one of the selling points for New Orleans of course and we hope the games back in eighteen when new world to celebrate his trust and Daniel now do you have to be invited back to do that so this whole. That's for sure all this is not only an invite -- just just to coerce women to let must build on it again and -- -- going to be -- to throw this huge audition ambient 28 team. That is the 300 anniversary of the city of New Orleans. What is the state doing using lieutenant governor had a tourism marketing I mean Imus I'm assuming all already put the packet together. To bribe him to come back you're 28 absolute that's not exactly the verb I would use but I haven't I would say that kind of stuff on a good out of politics that you wouldn't have to yes earlier you don't want -- -- -- -- -- in New Orleans a sports foundation does a great job and and they're working closely with all the folks who make tourism take in New Orleans and I'm putting a package together games in -- other for next year it's in Glendale the following year and then the to be decided in the in the subsequent years and who will be bidding on on eighteen and we think can we help we've got a great shot and it. They're gonna come back I mean that Dell venue as -- this but we did that one specific it's not like we're gonna bid and hopefully get -- -- -- that we can we want that one. Because it means so -- say it would and it's a such a big of -- 300 -- a -- I decided everything -- that timing is everything in the end they're going to be some potential new stadiums being built and sometimes when that happens those cities. Give the game inning of the game to zero -- -- let it -- open on the stadium economy the boost from Super Bowl in Miami and Dallas are always and hone. You know and I and I heard today that Denver is wanting to. Beer don't call the invited to bid on one of them that they wanted to put the suit brought back to the end of April -- problems you know but but obviously the NFL coming back here. This is gonna help us with the next one because I think they were. And a wait and see mode to see if we could handle that after after Katrina after everything I've seen I mean we saw a poll this week CBS held it. Most of the nation still thinks new world back and it's still. You know -- always tell us and we still fight that in in this is a great gonna gain changer when it comes to perception because he has the worldly as of America on the city for this week there's certainly going to be on the city. -- for the for game day and then after this game is over in this all the postmortem on how well this meant -- There's going to be a lot of positive comments made about Louisiana made about a New Orleans Denver. Now where they're gonna put the host committee up at that Estes Park hotel where they did the shining at the panel today will. As Brad rom I brag brag but I don't think you can get good at February that's just did you know you can't tell you and I was but also there's some tough. I spent about a week of it at that hotel outcome is magnanimous. But in the wintertime to south of a black -- southern Indiana Phil's gonna have an interest in experience with the -- city next year or what happens and he drove for in the and that's gonna that potentially has a big effect on the Denver does. Yeah they're they're putting their name in hoping that. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The -- Russian tea room over here was accounting and talented New Mexico. Anyway so so the state you're already on the planet Alia you and a governor and everybody's you know I mean I know -- -- primarily the city -- but the state has got a huge -- -- -- the superdome is owned by the state. It was the state hasn't has a financial -- so -- went up twelve who raised twelve million dollars I should they raised considerably more than that. Six million dollars got put up by the state actually all came out of my tourism budget which have been talking about because it shouldn't I'll come out of tourism because that's less money. We can spend advertising market the state. The rest of the year that the you know be spread around a little bit but that's a whole another story -- Minnesota state as a big financial stake. I mean frankly it's the committee in New Orleans that's doing the heavy lifting the parents the package together and obviously the support from the from the administration support from the state in general but it -- of folks in new worlds -- really make it to what don't we also that the rest of the state does feel some residual -- So -- you're gonna fire them all over the entire southeastern region I think of people stayed in hotels as always to have it go in there and -- -- -- troubling and rouge is not as of yesterday was not sold out but they're close to -- their hotel rooms and then -- being -- and folks coming in. From the air so it's it's got a huge effect on on the entire the greater New Orleans area -- really all south Louisiana and also we're -- -- mean when Dallas put it on there was barely got to drive the other and throw to go the ice palace -- live from the thing when -- -- fell off. And they Pitt took thirty million dollars put her on over there in their billion dollar stadium. This Super Bowl the most hospitable the biggest rooms the most fun. For like a third of that price thirteen fourteen -- -- won't you know we know how to do it down here we've got experience. You know with a number of games we've got ahead in the in the folks down here. The most hospitable in America we know how to throw a party we know how to do it right it's Clancy. And not take that to the NFL takes notice in the NFL owners know that in. You know we're very optimistic about games coming back here in the future hopefully eighteen if not nineteen we'll get him. We'll get another -- soon. Lieutenant governor Jay -- taking the time I appreciate it thanks very much passing gotta grow to claim -- I step on the way back remorse whatsoever out of this thing is that -- -- yeah.
