"Can you imagine what the city of New Orleans will be like if the Saints win the Super Bowl?" I would have to be in New Orleans, and no other place would do!”
From Facebook to Twitter, Bourbon Street and all, these days there is only one subject on everybody’s mind: Will the New Orleans Saints with an impressive 8-0 record “Go All The Way” and finally bring home to the Crescent City, the coveted Vice Lombardi Trophy! The pros and cons of the possibilities of this impending success are now not only a lively subject of discussion, but have also seized the attention of Las Vegas odds makers! Win or not, the anticipation level is growing by the day, and all are looking forward to this being the year the Super Bowl hits New Orleans!
And why not? Admitted into the NFL on November 1, 1966 which by the way was the same day as the Roman Catholic Holiday called the “All Saints day”, from which they hold their name, this New Orleans expansion team has had its fair share of ups and downs throughout their sportive years. Playing for more than a decade before managing to finish a season with a .500 record, and two more decades to finally claim their first successful years in 1987 and 1992, when the team made the playoffs four times and had winning records in the non playoff seasons! In the year 2000 the Saints were still going strong and defeated the then-defending Super Bowl champion the St. Louis Rams for the teams first playoff win!
So is this the year when they will “Go All The Way?” The Black and Gold Super Bowl party would be just the thing the beautiful city of New Orleans needs considering the devastation that Hurricane Katrina brought to all and the Louisiana superdome in 2005. After a $185 million renovation of the historic Louisiana Superdome, and the return of the team for the 2006 season, New Orleanians are more than ready to call in the victory for the Saints as for the first time in this franchise history, they are one of only two undefeated teams leading the NFC South!
With tickets to the games being sold out for the second year in a row, and expectations being high, it is without a doubt the most anticipated season of the year. Sporting their teams colors of Black and Gold which symbolized both Mecom’s and New Orleans’ strong ties to the oil (‘black gold”) industry, the Saints seems to be firmly on their way to bringing home a much needed triumph for the Super Bowl XLIV!.
With the football season fast approaching its deciding point and Super Bowl Sunday right around the corner, it’s without doubt that most of us do dare to dream even after being generally told otherwise in these past 42 years. Regardless of the past record of this well seasoned football team, the excitement and anticipation is great for fans of all ages, and the beliefs high that The Saints will finally bring home the greatly coveted Super Bowl grand finale in their name!
