The Saints Came Marching Home!!

By Remy Benoit

What a glorious night for New Orleans!!

70,000+ were there to watch the Saints victory over the Falcons but more importantly to help get the heart of the city beating again.

I know many of you who are not from New Orleans have difficulty understanding why rebuilding the Superdome, why this home game, was so important.

A year ago the Superdome was a bowl of misery in a sea of a flooded city.

Last night the courage, the heart, the spirit that is New Orleans was glowing with intense light and heat.

As the commercials here say, "WE ARE LOUISIANA."

New Orleans is not only a vital port city, she is a unique gem and we love her.

Congratulations to the Saints. To the players on the Falcon team, your graciousness last night post-game was awesome to watch. Thank you!

From Nola.com and Jeff Duncan WHAT A SHOW! ELECTRIFYING SAINTS ROUT FALCONS; NOW 3-0.

Those of you still out there, come on home to New Orleans, she needs you!
