Some towns have all the luck

There was a time when Shreveport and Jackson were rivals in the Texas League.

They are rivals, sort of, this August.

Shreveport has the Saints playing the Cowboys. Jackson has the Saints playing the Colts. Shreveport has enjoyed a slight lead in tickets sold for the NFL preseason games. Jackson has been closing fast.

And that's about where the advantages end for Shreveport.

Jackson has the Saints' training camp. Shreveport has hot weather. Jackson has Reggie Bush. Shreveport doesn't have Bush or shade.

And now Jackson is getting Chipper Jones this weekend on a rehab assignment with the Mississippi Braves. And the Shreveport Sports? Never mind.
