Downtown New Orleans, near the convention center. It's Super Bowl week, and this is the center of the sports universe.
It's a Thursday night, not a weekend. About 6:30 p.m.
Walking down the street there's a guy holding a drink in his hand. Apparently not his first.
He has a bucket on his head, wearing it like a hat.
He shouts to anyone who will listen, "God I love this city!"
