Saints Home Opener

This past Thursday was the Saint's season opener against Brett Farve and the Minnesota Vikings. It was a special moment for me and many other die hard fans since that spectacular Superbowl win back in February. NFL themed floats rolled through the French Quarters. Taylor Swift and The Dave Matthews band rocked Jackson square filled with approximately 90,000 people. The Superbowl banner was dropped from the Dome rafters accompanied by fire works and Harry Connick performing When the Saints Go Marching In. The Who Dat chant lead by Drew Brees electrified the Dome sending chills up one's spine. Colbie Caillat blew us away with her rendition of The Star Spangled Banner. Anticipation was definitely high for this rematch of the NFC South Championship game, but as the night went on, the performance was only minimal. It was a low scoring game, however, a win is a win. 14-9 and the Saints are still undefeated and the 2009 Superbowl Champs!

See Ya!
