Cheers and Fears Overcome!
"The Superdome got a new roof after Hurricane Katrina. The New Orleans Saints did their best to blow it off again. In an earsplitting return to their rebuilt stadium, the Saints gave the Big Easy something to cheer about - an undefeated football team that made it look easy with a 23-3 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night. This one couldn't have been scripted any better for a team that spent all of last season on the road, and it couldn't have come at a better time for a city that is still struggling to overcome the devastation of Katrina."
Not my words, but the sentiment is all there. This win meant more to this city than anyone can ever know. I think that it started to come down to, if the Saints lose, we will all lose.
The Saints won well! We feel great. Once again of Mayors and the sentiment made by fans of football players; does not restore a city, but helps to restore the pride therein. Please come and visit New Orleans, and be sure to buy some art while you are here!
