The rash of head injuries in the NFL last weekend didn't just consume Cleveland Browns fans. Walking yesterday in the Garden District of New Orleans, talk of Steelers' linebacker James Harrison and his $75,000 fine was everyone.
On the St. Charles streetcar, the driver and another man discussed Harrison, with the driver saying the fine was too steep. He insisted Harrison was merely doing his job and trying to feed his family.
In Jezebel's art and antiques store on Magazine Street, saleswoman Eleanor Landymore was well versed in the controversy since she's a die-hard Saints follower. The shop owned by Landymore's sister is frequented by Saints fans looking for glitz to wear to the games.
