I live and work in New Orleans, and I got this email the other day at work
As a result of the anticipated large crowds that will be in the CBD for the NFL parade and concerts and this being a Thursday night game, the Home Office will close early. Home Office employees may leave at 2:00 PM in order to avoid the traffic congestion associated with the game and all of the NFL pre-game activities that will take place around the CBD.
They also wanted me to wear a Saints jersey to work, nice try! Guex Saints! (on weekday games). JETS FREAKIN RULE!
