With that in mind, E-ticket celebrates the Big Easy as the City of Championships. Beginning with Pat Forde's essay and continuing with the work of writers such as Dan Jenkins and Roy Blount Jr., and coaches and players such as Joe Paterno and Mike Ditka, we salute N'awlins. We look forward to the day it rises again and when we're able to return ... It will rise again. And we will return.
