Busy, busy days

It's been a busy, busy time in the Ark-La-Tex these last three or four days.

Just to recap:

On Sunday, the New Orleans Saints and Dallas Cowboys arrived in town for their preseason game. The Saints signed a few autographs and walked in the front door of the hotel at Diamond Jacks. The Cowboys tried to avoid the crowd through the back door at Sam's Town.

On Monday, there was the actual game. Even though it was just preseason, the atmosphere outside of Independence Stadium dripped football. Yes, there was trouble getting the crowd to their seats. And traffic was slow at times. But all in all, it was worth it.

On Thursday, The Times will publish its high school and college football preview. It'll be divided into two sections with two covers. We hope you'll like it. We'll spread out our NFL previews in the coming days.

On Friday, the high school jamborees will give us the first hint of football on the local scene.

And we at The Times will also be rolling out our new high school Web site, PrepsBeat. We think you'll like it with stats, schedules, player profiles and more.

It's a busy time these days. Ain't it great?
