To many, Memorial Day is a chance to take a three day weekend, fire up the grill & take it easy. The last Monday in May was made a holiday to honor those who have sacrificed for our country. When you enjoy your long weekend, please keep that in mind. Spending time with folks we love is a celebration of what they fought to protect, and the best way I can think of to honor their memory.
Pam Armentor is a loyal KTDY listener. She was listening to my radio show when she heard the "Q To Call" in the KTDY "Give Me the Money" contest. Pam called 877-854-WINS (9467). When she got through, Pam was told she was caller #26, but the 25th caller was a previous winner, and therefore ineligible, so she won the $1,000!

They're both New Orleans natives. One played defense, the other, offense. They both made their mark on special teams. Tyrone Hughes played defensive back at Nebraska. The Saints drafted him in the 5th round in 1993. Michael Lewis was a wide receiver in high school, and didn't play college football. He bounced around the Arena League, then took a job driving a beer truck. Running a fast 40 yard dash in the rain outside Saints headquarters got him a spot on special teams in 2000.
