Although I'm not much of a pro basketball fan, I love the choice Pelicans as the team name. Great history in New Orleans and great connection with the whole state. And, of course, it reminds me of Papa Campanella! It's a beautiful, graceful bird, believe it or not! PaulaRat and I once spent a Sunday afternoon at Bruning's eating seafood and watching the pelicans do the same.

Ah, yes, Papa Campanella was fond of sitting on the back porch at the camp reciting his favorite poem:

A wise old bird is the pelican
His beak can hold more than his belly can
In his beak he holds food for more than a week
And I still don't know how the hell he can.
