I believe he spent quite a bit of time there. He seems to think of it as a second home. It doesn't bother me how he pronounces it. It seems like he cares...unlike many of his ilk.

I like Shep. He is damn funny.

I grew up around New Orleans and Baton Rouge....I have not once, heard a local say "Nawlins"

That's because it's pronounced "Nawlins". Anyone who says "New Ore-Leeens" ain't from around here.
