In an unprecedented move, Saudi Arabia also named a princess, Reema bint Bandar bin Sultan, as the kingdom’s first woman ambassador to the United States. Prince Khalid, a former fighter pilot, had been ambassador to Washington for less than two years. The new envoy, Princess Reema bint Bandar bin Sultan, is the daughter of a former long-time ambassador to the United States. Trump has said he wants Washington to stand by the crown prince, despite a CIA assessment that he likely ordered Khashoggi’s killing - which the Saudis deny.

So it is with some Green Bay Packers fans and two of the league's shiniest objects — wide receiver Antonio Brown and running back Le'Veon Bell. The biggest deterrent to the Packers making one or two splash moves in free agency is the condition of the roster. The Packers could gain cap room by releasing Perry, Graham, Bulaga or Williams, but that also would create even more holes in the lineup. Because the roster is in such a sorry state, acquiring Brown or Bell is a luxury the Packers can't afford. Cap room gets eaten up quickly in free agency and the Packers can't afford that kind of hit at a position where they're fairly well-covered already.

That posed a problem both for the marching krewes like Krewe du Vieux, which have smaller, do-it-yourself floats, and the massive floats that major krewes contract out to professional builders. Some krewes begin designing their floats more than a year in advance, and most are finished months ahead of their parade date. Hjortsberg said his group changed the names of all of its floats at the last minute to twit the NFL. Photos: Krewe du Vieux, krewedelusion poke fun at NFL, more in 2019 paradesBut throws are easy work compared to the last-minute float design changes taking place in some Uptown dens. Swanson, the captain of the Krewe du Vieux sub-krewe Drips and Discharges, said the members voted before switching their float design last month.

GREEN BAY — If Aaron Rodgers truly wants to be coached — as the Green Bay Packers veteran quarterback has said in the past — he’ll have ample opportunity to receive that coaching in the team’s new offense. Rodgers didn’t know LaFleur before he got the head-coaching job, but they’ll need to work closely with LaFleur as the play-caller. In Getsy, though, Rodgers has a position coach who shared the quarterbacks room in 2014 and 2015 as an offensive assistant before coaching the Packers’ wide receivers in 2016 and 2017. That’s what our job is as an assistant coach.”LaFleur said he didn’t go into his search for a quarterbacks coach wanting to find someone Rodgers already knew. Certainly we were going to find the best quarterback coach that’s out there,” LaFleur said.
