Ravens-Steelers rescheduled again by COVID-19 to Wednesday
11/30/2020 5:10pm

The Baltimore Ravens&rsquo struggle to contain an extended outbreak of the coronavirus forced their rescheduled game Tuesday night against the unbeaten Pittsburgh Steelers to be moved back to Wednesday.It&rsquos the third fix to a matchup originally slated to be played Thanksgiving night.The NFL announced the most recent switch Monday after the Ravens placed starters Matthew Judon, Willie Snead and Mark Andrews on the reserve/COVID-19 list.Although Baltimore also had four players return from that list, the team will still be severely short-handed when this game is finally played.The addition of Judon, a standout linebacker, and Andrews, the leading receiver on the team, brings to seven the number of 2019 Pro Bowl players that Baltimore has placed on the COVID-19 list over the past week.Cornerback Terrell Bonds, who&rsquos on injured reserve, was also added to the expansive list Monday.There was a bit of good news, however: Baltimore activated linebacker Jayson Ferguson, offensive lineman D.J. Fluker and defensive tackle Broderick Washington from the COVID-19 list. Defensive back Iman Marshall was also activated, although he&rsquos been on IR since tearing his right ACL in August.The contest pitting two longtime rivals was originally scheduled for Thanksgiving night before a rash of coronavirus cases among the Ravens forced the game to be postponed to Sunday. As Baltimore continued to stack up positive tests, the game was moved back to Tuesday night.Now, perhaps, they&rsquoll finally meet on Wednesday in Pittsburgh. Or not.The Ravens 6-4 will face the Steelers without several of their top playmakers, including quarterback Lamar Jackson, running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins, and defensive linemen Calais Campbell and Brandon Williams.The loss of Andrews and Snead will further hinder backup quarterback Robert Griffin III, who will be taking snaps from a third-string center after Patrick Mekari and Matt Skura were placed on the COVID-19 list on Wednesday.Andrews is a Type-1 diabetic, which makes COVID-19 potentially more dangerous. His loss should have an impact in that he leads Baltimore in receptions 38, yards receiving 454 and touchdown catches 6.Andrews, Judon, Jackson, Ingram, Campbell, fullback Patrick Ricard and long snapper Morgan Cox were all selected to the Pro Bowl last season. Jackson, of course, was the NFL&rsquos MVP in 2019.Judon owns Baltimore&rsquos franchise tag. He is tied for the team lead with four sacks and has 34 tackles.Snead has 17 catches for 230 yards and two touchdowns over the past four games.The NFL&rsquos last Wednesday game was the 2012 season opener between the Giants and the Cowboys, which was moved from a Thursday night because of a conflict with the Democratic National Convention, which was scheduled to have President Barack Obama speak on Thursday night.&ldquoWe understand that every team is going through something like this,&rdquo Steelers defensive end Cam Heyward said. &ldquoNot to this extent, but we have to be ready for any situation. I think coach Mike Tomlin has laid out the plan. It&rsquos up for us to follow it and it&rsquos up for us to bounce back with it.&rdquoAdded Steelers tackle Zach Banner, who was injured in the season opener: &ldquoI&rsquom gonna be healthy by the time we play this game.&rdquoStill to be decided is when the scheduled Week 13 game between the Steelers and Washington will be played. It is currently set for Sunday at Heinz Field. Baltimore is supposed to host Dallas on Dec. 7.Permalink Comments

Celebration in the Oaks returns to City Park in drive-thru fashion amid pandemic
11/30/2020 4:24pm

NEW ORLEANS - A Crescent City holiday favorite is back for its 34th year. Celebration in the Oaks has returned to City Park, though organizers have turned the event into a drive-thru experience because of the ongoing pandemic.City Park CEO Bob Becker says it was difficult to find a way to keep the tradition alive in 2020 due to COVID-related restrictions, but the experience will be just as magical.Attendees will stay seated inside of their vehicles while winding down the 2.5 mile stretch of lights and exhibits.We had to find a way to let people enjoy the holiday season amid all the restrictions, and the driving tour just seemed to be the right way to go, Becker said in an interview with WWL.Fan favorites from the original Celebration in the Oaks walking tour will be on display. The journey will even include exhibits from pre-Hurricane Katrina. Becker says it promises to be a pretty great spectacular.Organizers say the event will bring joy to those in need of holiday spirit, in addition to helping the park after a tough year of financial struggles.Not only is this a wonderful event for the family and the holiday season, but its a huge revenue maker for City Park. We have been extremely challenged this year as a result of the restrictions and having to lay off staff and not being able to have events and activities, so if you attend the event, not only do you get a great holiday event to attend but youre supporting the park, Becker said.Over 90 of the parks revenue comes from activities hosted in the park. Although a few events were able to go on despite the coronavirus pandemic, Becker says the main, money-maker events were canceled.&nbspThe park was able to reopen some areas such as the tennis facility, botanical garden, and Storyland, but those profits are not enough to account for the parks expenses, even after furloughing 1/3 of the staff. Becker says many are depending on the success of Celebration in the Oaks.A limited amount of&nbsptickets will be available for purchase&nbspeach day online. Guests will choose a date and time for their visit prior to their arrival.Tickets can be shown via smartphone or printed QR code upon arrival to enter the queue and begin the extravaganza.&nbspThe event opened on Thanksgiving Day and will run through January 3.The price of entry is $18.99 per vehicle with a maximum of eight passengers per car, truck, or SUV.For more information,&nbspclick here.Permalink Comments
