Vacation Cancelled, Slumdog, Drew & CP3

What a week.

Last night my brother and I spent 7 hours in the Dallas airport waiting to get a flight back to New Orleans.  We were originally scheduled to have a 45 minute layover on our way to Las Vegas. 

But, because Vegas is experiencing it’s worst snow storm in over 30 years….all flights into McCarron Airport were halted!

So the Mackel Vegas Christmas was cancelled!

On a happier note…being on vacation has given me plenty of time to catch up on some movies.  I highly recommend ‘Slumdog Millionaire.’

The director is Danny Boyle who brough us such films as Trainspotting, A Life Less Ordinary, The Beach and 28 Days Later.  I was not a huge fan of Boyle but this is a great movie….go see it!!!!

Plus, it’s impossible to take your eyes off of co-star Freida Pinto.

 As for sports (which this blog is dedicated too) I hate to say it but I see the Saints losing this week to the Detroit Lions.  The Lions will finish 1-15 overall and embarrassingly their only win will come against our black and gold.

I also think Drew Brees will break Dan Marino’s single season NFL passing record.brees-large

And finally, I hope all fans who read this blog understand how lucky we are to have two amazing athletes like Drew Brees and Chris Paul representing our city.      cp3333

More to come when I come back from vacation.

  1. I am sorry that your vacation to Vegas was cancelled, because of the snow storm in Las Vegas.

    “Slumdog Millionaire” looks like a good movie! Freida Pinto is a gorgeous, talented actress!

    It is awesome to have Drew Brees & Chris Paul represent New Orleans! They are the best (and handsome & talented, too)!

  2. recommending an indian movie…interesting

    i do agree that the lions will defeat the saints but the surpassing dan marino record…i think he will miss it by 100 yards

  3. You have been tagged. And I agree – the Saints will lost to their 5th winless team.
