Saints/Cowboys game disappoints some

Not everyone made it into the Saints-Cowboys game on Monday night. A friend from Ruston, who had purchased $135 worth of tickets, got caught up in the I-20 traffic and didn't get to the area in front of Independence Stadium until 8 p.m. Unable to find a parking place, the entourage decided to drive to a restaurant, eat supper, then head back to Ruston.

Another friend was in the State Fair lot tailgating at 5 p.m. At about 10 minutes until 7, they headed up to the stadium, but were disconcerted at the 500-plus-line of people getting frisked. He looked at his wife and asked if she wanted to wait in the line. "No." They headed to their car, drove home and watched the game on TV after a cold shower.

Many of the things associated with the NFL preseason game went well, but obviously there were other people disgusted with the lines.
