We spent the last two hours talking about the the Super Bowl and the events and we will continue taking your calls and comments -- I got a whole bunch of calls. Stacked up on a Gomorrah text messages that I am going to be able to get to but keep sending a moment here some I sent a text message. CNN's states that New Orleans cannot hold large you've been CNN is making new ones look like -- due to lights going out CNN is based in Atlanta. And they would love to be able photo is Tony -- consumer. This is Super Bowl as we do but they can't because number one that a moment a dirty birds and ain't got a decent sandwich and a whole place of days ago. And joining me and you know what they got -- to grow which is another reason why they don't have throw a party. And the find out more about the world famous Mardi -- it is -- -- -- Mardi -- himself. The publisher of the -- -- and other cool stuff here in and around the city and Wallace missed -- -- haunting you often. It's our -- investment that the effective football game -- the way we can get on -- -- -- -- -- -- a real law on a non -- now I know you -- hey let's let's start out says with that big -- event that happened -- -- -- it. Let's start out with how did these Super Bowl a. In a Roth I mean I know the city got Clinton happened there were some crews that are really affected them. Also how did it influence -- Goodell made his speech you know this press conference for him talking about. You know while has the Mardi Gras floats and got my pitcher all over the place and aside for so me what what crews did what and -- I mean are we going to be seen in some other Super Bowl influence in the morning. Oh yeah -- extra days. Once it doesn't -- you choose to close a couple forage there. Sure thing than what we're now let go yeah you know the secret delicate game you know where they won't bureaucracy it. There was on the other -- to lead -- -- you know nothing could be wars and put it on the person who. Party split but not nasty. But in general I mean it was an imposition on the clubs that are the movers I've got a moderate you as you know happened in 2002. And it's gonna happen in 48 gene normally get the game program about a perfect but. It inspired the inconvenience are still maintain most people's records. We can do boats and we will do boatmen's and we do well yeah really banged up but first we -- a modern girls. -- actually it was a bang up first three and it was a lot of fun and an affair McGraw and all the events that went around -- Jefferson nights in nemesis and all that we're about. So well let's let's let's talk about what happened this past weekend. There liberal is that true weekends you know it was it was truly good. I didn't get to see you as many birds with a -- to targets and speaking engagements -- A lot of my friends go to all cars and Paramount comfort. Good things all across the board you know if we had parades in Metairie man to know what I sent Morocco clintons aren't you know opt -- All over the politicians and local or long -- could crowns. Actually he was so that was -- as it normally is no real -- you talk about a couple breakdowns and rhetoric but. It -- a surprise surprise and. Yeah he kept it general corporate world -- good start and clean up for a lot of people article really begins. There's just -- And they didn't mean it's it's nonstop to Fat Tuesday and then you'll see more Serb terror. One says there's -- party and even Saturday and then than we normally actually our our car the seat. Quote from really have a parade and I think they've ratcheted up the -- -- cheers and some relief fund mr. -- why just because of the -- let me let me let me ask you yes okay. They're going out of their way they wanna get invited to bid on Tony eighteen. And again I was very pleased and proud to be a party get in here for two point thirteen all I did was was narrate the tape that they did but that was just part of the presentation. I'll gladly be part of the next time. But once I did my -- once I cut my stuff and it took me like you know two visits to do at all. Then I was done I was out a picture. If into when he eighteen. If it's going to be roughly the same Mardi -- type than it is now so they're probably gonna have to split it. Rule is now are experiencing this. Are they going to or do you know if the mayor and the governor and whoever else was involved a moment committee and everything. Do they once they get the gig to they approached the Mardi Gras cruise right then and there order they wait until like you know. Or that they did mr. arm perhaps on some recruits were upset though and in fairness actually cut the game. And in -- with the calendar and figure out what's gonna happen and he knew we'd get knocked it on the fiftieth anniversary of the game can't sell because it was. On the sunbathers. Come to be known as. Talkers were so certain that you can imagine there -- -- you could move those stories and you could do that it's a little so we knew about the bid on that games. And -- would want the rotation medical equipment that is. There is some consideration given what what games -- good on its excuse for conflict with moderate but as accomplished. But first we can. Apparently that's not enough to keep us out of -- park. But they don't meet but you know that mean I'm just wondering all the lessons that we learned here like somebody somebody called up when they had a problem going parked it on their crews and -- Whether or not -- taken into account. And I can assure you there are people in the mayor's office who listened to this station -- Listen the main you know I got a whole bunch -- little cool -- by the way thanks Mitch. I got cool pillow over my press pass than my demo some from it. One problem I got there were only about a hundred these things made but it's the pen to just Marcus getting -- in -- eighteen -- a little silver -- with a -- early. With 2018 hornet and I got that Obama. We are -- under those announced pretty rare. Bought and now that lesson be learned I mean I -- to send an email to go to the mayor's office and just go look. There were about a whole bunch of people aren't. Who -- three hours late getting onto their cruise ship you know so I mean. Next time yeah I'll try to do this this need to be taken a cap here and sound they do this should they sit down with the all the -- ago all right we got to show. We got it so let's let's fix this problem right now to make sure nobody's -- -- on short on money. You are not think that would be it could have good political move. But it doesn't change a reality no shortage of hope so rooms or hotels packing up their prices. You know deserves. Whenever you're gonna that orchestra what a presidential visit you might want to present incumbent guests -- Are parents going to be -- sort of tunnel that originally you if you cannot do an event of this magnitude. And get all of them that you get a permit and not have somewhat bummed out. Remember specifically. Eight years ago I was on the line chart for The Today Show. Downtown in the front court about cap if you want we were ready to go alarms and emotional Bender who was all -- -- about having the move Cousteau. And got right in the middle of our live shot and almost use and -- vehicle we introduce our city you people come -- -- tech gunman was awful. To order a million people watch and try to promote -- -- I'm the president convenience. And talk to cause arm -- national television you know it was inconvenient Carrey wants you to move up. But the greater good you know -- I've tried that. Convincing me rather than out of the shot and then he did reluctantly but she -- just -- -- historically grown ups of Pakistan. Iran and and how how difficult was it for in the movie stuff -- -- -- and. It wasn't hard at all if it was just a pretzel time this -- our camp look at -- square remark I -- completely techno and best and that people who sent that. And and I get that they're so someone's sick or ground you know but. If you wanna have this kind of events you gonna put -- -- on things that and in the NFL is is that is brilliant and they call transcript. I still think on balance the the good outweighs the bad and and I think most people feel like but what to say no -- it was inconvenient would be true -- -- So I don't go anywhere where I want to keep up there world and we'll start taking your calls and -- are -- a big Mardi Gras are. Did this Super Bowl -- interfere with your money grow plants -- was just suddenly just roll right off your back you'll also get us some more heads up on what's coming up. This particular week in the weekend all morning grown and in and just are you ready to -- -- Arthur hardy the marquee -- wrong that is mind. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The marquis de Mardi Gras and the publisher of the drug got -- third party joining me here and your calls and comments about Monica rise in the Super Bowl. Mixing in the same bowl -- navigates a regular protocol -- So they gave seventy Arthur hardy the marquis -- Mardi -- publisher of -- Mardi Gras -- Is joining me were -- talking about the the Super Bowl splitting up the Mardi -- in the sit in -- lawns of course but not across the the entire region family -- and on nights went on the world tam -- and then Mardi -- on the entire region has has gone on and we'll consider year old cranks -- bring him. On Wednesday. Let's let's let's talk briefly about the and is somebody sent me at Texas this is from suing metric. Mardi Gras Tony eighteen is February the thirteenth. So works perfectly with the Super Bowls like this year. What is at the -- also be -- yet be basically the same thing we'd have a week than a week of the -- lament another we -- -- forget -- -- -- Anyway also so let's let's talk -- grow real quick and some of the load the the beauty of and the things that are getting to Boston -- -- -- Emmy folks favor parades up there and others a lot of people wanna catch a lot of stuff but I got Italian. I would prefer cats and two with three. Nice those nice old Tammy glass beads you know. Instead of another fifty things hang around my neck. -- -- Slovakia when it. You know really it. What becomes sort of created people fish refute it or -- catching isn't -- foreign policy see people it would be history and that -- I mean. I guess it's good for the people of her character grows and spent a lot of those so I would trust me so how about. I mean it's about but you know -- you know here at this. That's me personally I know a lot of people I mean they feel they want the big army and those big beans that are like two inches in diameter type of thing tonight. A beautiful on some of these -- so all walks of our and you really can't say I'm aware of them and a lot of people measure that the value operated on matched up at the moment but. What what some of the better parade since it's almost a shame that they're so much emphasis on throws. Fair and and you couldn't see the beauty tips as to why because it's a real artistry it more so there's certain people ought to take a minute and just look at how beautiful some of these things are. -- they design I mean they're getting fancier -- to hear you talk last week a month. You know some of the lighted throws that are coming salute their of their crews are designing more and more stuff and and -- and made and then of course you always get handmade stuff like the coconuts and the and issues from muses and things like that I mean is going to be Mora. Specific like that pale her -- somebody sent me a big old text message hale told. But I mean that's why again I've caught. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I've never actually caught a cold tonight of -- you know I'm every unit. Well I mean they they bring them to the show when I interview you know I never McCain get close enough confront because they can't toss that escrow. And that and that's a good -- up or what you don't want this noon -- -- nine units it is it's absolutely workable on you bridges. That's unpleasant and just what care for half an hour enjoy it. And I hope people see it while also catching all the great. Things are becoming all of the cousins it was so -- that operates can be artistic and you get free get sent home. But. Some problems and so on up and procurement know -- to pay -- in some -- that that may work. If the -- on all of our but then you know you can it's -- we cannot just scored just never get the -- -- some of these parades and next spring nights. If you really at the tickets are going to look at them and in a couple of them are -- tomorrow night -- Smart ones that are good crew was great. It's a -- parade along the real you'll real and sought market brushed off. That some people and archer has. And people in the coral community or just a little yellow. But protectors certain you know in the old days. Graceful almost the educational events that you wouldn't have radio TV movies so I'm talking about 19100. And do the things over literary culture of -- bitter public in the end as well past. You know people would see this story alive and alone and recognizes tractors and characters -- -- -- -- -- -- picture -- me that. But the district from you know a bit so a lot of issues don't blame him and we've got some emphasis on the feel artistry and symbolism in particular the Serb terms of the French. -- talk briefly about the safety issues to come on Americana -- a coconut and you can't throw coconuts anymore there'll be handed to -- And but I've had this conversation when Garland and Tommy Tucker and several people. You know especially when you got you know you gotta work -- -- the parade where you're like trying to make a comment and I'm flattered. I'm flattered when people recognize me wanna throw me stuff. But if I'm not looking right matchup I can't catch a bag of beads -- -- -- you know and somebody almost knocked my daughter off the latter when she was about form I thought I appreciate it. But don't throw a bag of bees in the you know I don't know -- -- does that -- And you hope it's it's just her enthusiastic and not throwing a calmer hurt your -- know our that it Blanchard river baucus on the blue in the command center. During a lot -- kind of art news and almost -- work -- restore the terrible big would be huge. And I was I don't know sort and you get and you hope that story -- true you're not match you and and could have. And then it's envisioned that you just have to use good judgment and your report and have -- and you assume some rest some -- soccer baseball and you know he can't there's going to be a baseball for a 100000 are so. A chance that the market -- it's coming your work but it should not looking at this point you can't do that. And and the trick I've found men and talked a lot of people out of the trick of actually. Get -- is to make eye contact with somebody else and then that's when -- then that's -- you get more -- feel like that there but for them to. And it's it's you know and I find I think it is is that they're trying. To reach somebody else and they don't quite make it. Yeah I think some of that charge. And much closer a couple of people are known Jim arm a little burden of slopes and you get enthusiastic. -- temperature got to be careful here there be careful and so the we restricted -- Yes you do happy Marty Roth -- would talk to you soon. -- -- I will awful honey -- marquis de mark McGraw the publisher of the Mardi Gras guide thanks for joining us and give us a heads up we'll take your calls and comments about -- grind in the Super Bowl. And what to how many -- have you got stashed in your attic there Shannon rose news babe I do feel actually yeah I didn't feel. About decorating the you can't tell you why in they had that thing fund raiser where all the kids showed up in the previous morning. A little enough I mean those are very cool and you can always camera -- -- moment -- -- -- school -- -- big enough for me your masters becoming -- -- -- -- -- strands of glare screen. In my life. I'd like them. Bagram was serving 878 WWL. I think fifth -- and 087 air told realigned his attacks. So much coverage on the Super Bowl than an ever heard who's the celebrity and Eminem bachus I thought beyoncé halftime show was a waste Arnold say that. Don't know when -- and is GW Bailey is going to be for -- and you know when they announced him you're like who's that guy. -- -- -- -- from the closest -- from all the and you know when you see -- did all those police academy movies he did this movie called Ross was rhapsody. With the Tom Beringer there was -- he's been around forever he -- he believes he's been in that in out and wants. For years he was a big friend Harry -- used to come the morning wrong you succumbed everything. I mean he's still he's a regular visitor to the city -- -- -- I don't know if he has a home or not but I would not be surprised to be -- Save an Angel dog rescue in Metairie collects beads as a fund raiser for -- nonprofit. So there on FaceBook and they do a lot of good I read an article the other day that there are more pets in the country than children. -- -- Other -- will be -- beaded bras. That's nice and -- tell people not to throw back at the floats. I've ridden for years and people overcoming more disrespectful by throwing back at the writers. Yeah but you know what if you've been hit in the head with a bag obese girls I think people get no more disrespectful across the board. So I agree with -- you know don't throw stuff back to the writers. Anyway he. 260 warnings so let's go back to the phones. -- don't dons in Mississippi high you know and Don thanks for calling a BMW okay. Yeah fines are pretty -- things in the big statement simply. Things -- really night you know that little cloudy today but other mapping defined word -- rob Peter to you. A lot. I think you're you do a great job on Merlo -- an appeal and I'm available look at a radio Vietnam. -- say a -- and beyond our party. And -- -- you know. So of course I'm negative -- come along with -- district disruption of Mardi Gras thing but I think it's one of those things where you gotta give a little to get a little. I think what the Super Bowl -- own catalog. Agreed. I think it was a wonderful I was over the air Friday night -- a -- friend who spent thirty some years in the oral and she doesn't Mississippi now that -- -- enlighten me would it would regard I know our own bodies to be fearful that go into the air and CNET URL like the back perhaps thought that all replacement car we've been down so that. Overnight or looking at the city it was very down after the storm and looked -- You know. Speedboat out as a rare off. Oh yeah you know what -- Royal -- across Europe. And know what -- up until people you know and it. If they were they to come to the -- -- com for more growth for sure comfort jazz has come for a you know a lot of sense welfare comfort in the in all of these things are certainly if we get the super bowling game come back for that. When I try to tell people. Come to New Orleans between the Halloween and Thanksgiving. When it's not too cold it's not too modest not too -- There's always something going on but they usually don't have anything to big going on right there. And then you get to actually just go and experience the city without having to worry about dungeons something you know. It's over the -- that's been and -- -- yeah. That was always a fun thing -- -- on that. Yeah but that's that's also something that it's a big event that draws a lot of people -- you know once you. Once -- if you can it's very easy to avoid that part of the city and -- home country -- -- in a -- -- -- it's all over there. And and from may and then in known in -- you know where Armstrong park and almost there is right there. But it's very easy to go see each other swaptions of the city and and just avoid that if this what you wanted to march across different animal because he would you know just in. Impedance itself all over everybody. A lot of things we did CC EnerNOC EnerNOC inner -- -- that it this and we'll all these -- I was the secret at all or so every home game.

Keep your eyes open book just loosen up and have a good time and there's there's there's -- there's something here for everyone yet. And it's small enough that the people all know each other and they continuance -- New York's a great town. But it's so huge. You know it there's just this just -- that's not -- on you know man I appreciate -- you think about that I think it. 260187 is our number Randy and Dina and text messages people trophies back proposed. They only want the long beats the visit 33 inches short they the move out of the way to throw a bag don't throw anything -- yeah. Our backbone for shortly 878 WWL is always some new WB -- much.

What about it when I'm let's -- to -- to -- is just sit this out and I don't. But I was a Little League revenue it was pouring down trailer and I called my wife and -- -- Should remind -- this moment right now won my first bill arms firm gimme next here. My bill content she says number that they when it was pouring down rain pound tomorrow you're here I wrote the -- yeah. But I hope well there's no hope the people are enrolled in revenue -- And then you're going to be a beautiful parade if you would couldn't very narrow exception floated truly gorgeous is that smells like popcorn -- in musicals spot. -- got some. Being equipment could smell like that I'm here. Once you throw popcorn cotton candy. You know what people would pick it up to the. I would tell my kids will certainly Tencent. Well McGovern summed up for you. Yeah you know what though frankly we got to find a good place to go watch because I'll tell you -- true. Most of the endemic in parades I've seen the last couple years is somebody's blood on top of the latter two are all -- draw a lot of people. Wolf spoke like -- -- -- -- and what would -- got people all spend most of the public to 2000 thousands and I was rooting interest just do my wonderful causes movement you know so yeah. But I hope everybody -- -- -- and -- have good weapons you know and give him. Palin Demi and it and Kelly Clarkson and their regular appreciated 2601 point seven is our number here is a text message. We went to little rascals parade and the last float had no one on it just large boxes with signs to feel free to donate your. It was awesome how many people through their -- back and nobody was on the phone to get hurt all parade should consider doing -- I think unseen stuff like that too they have like a kind of a funnel flu you know. I mean not a funnel but it's like you know people try to throw specifically like -- a edit the figurehead on the front of afloat. I don't know -- -- look I've got a bunch a text messages about what's going on upper arm themselves on the interstate. We'll give you a heads up format and give you some more heads up on what's or your trip home today. On this day after Monica -- all of stay tuned we'll get right back to more your phone calls what's fun I was going. We're back here wrapping up the show today there was just not make people asked about that hostage situation and Alabama assuming she stay tuned will give you an update on that. I don't know all the news I think it's good news but stay tuned for a -- WW only bring your report on that -- just been going on for days has been the balloon autistic boy who was. Kidnapped off the bus in the you know in that bunker. Stay tuned we'll bring you up to date on that GW Bailey was born in Baton Rouge thanks Phillip for senate that in that I did not know. But I know he's -- no he's lewd obscene and here nor and so many are never worked -- them. But I mean we know each other he knows who I am I ever Tommy pays but I donate you don't salmon baby you know good to see him accounts such. So what he'll he'll be a hoot and I know a lot of people were -- day you know Arianna is that guy he's like a -- he's probably going to be a really good and -- and because he knows and understands Mardi -- he loves the city loves the state. He's got a lot of friends over here as soon as you see him you know who we is so I think bachus is going to be a -- Talking malice stuff Alla had been recycled -- float I think it's a fantastic idea. Tim and -- always has floated the into the parade that has a net around with a basketball goal mounted in the middle for a throwback beads. So if my girlfriend don't know how many and remember -- on wanna go down that road. Here's another 11 and ungodly amount of money floated Tony spends more than a teacher -- makes -- a year something wrong here no it's their money and they can spend it as they please. There's nothing wrong there. At all since is these are private functions. They all the crews pay for all of this is the biggest private free party in the world. And all the firemen and teachers are welcome to come enjoy themselves for three. Just don't park anywhere that the city you'll gladly stick in Orange. Envelope on your. Car but there's nothing wrong with that that's private people spend their money in a private way and frankly. -- I know a lot of these crews have have -- charities that they donate.
