Well it is finally here. Mardi Gras week. Everyone is getting excited because this is like a national holiday for Louisiana.
I have compiled a list of the events going on this week for Mardi Gras including the parade dates and times.
In most of the country things slow down after Christmas and New Years. Here we segue into Mardi Gras and keep the party going. It all starts twelve days after Christmas. We have this year's schedule for you
Prepare your tailgating equipment or your lucky chair, wash the jerseys, maybe pick up a new big screen TV because football season is just around the corner. Here are the dates and times for the first games.

Texas A&M were set to welcome the McNeese Cowboys for their home opener on Aug. 30, but word broke Wednesday that the Aggies have broken that contract to play Louisiana Tech instead. The move has left McNeese scrambling to fill the hole in their schedule and could put the Cowboys facing off against a conference rival twice in the same season.
The LSU Tigers are 13-0 and heading to New Orleans on January 9th to play for the BCS National Championship!
I know they still have one game left to play but the University and the athletic department has released the 2012 home and away football schedule. We wanted to share it with all you Tiger fans out there.
