Only in New Orleans

I am posting the link to a video that I cannot get enough of!

Each Sunday after an away game, thousands of Saints fans greet the team at the airport as they arrive into New Orleans. It started months back and was just a few hundred people and a brass band. Now it is like Mardi Gras. They have had to hire police officers to direct traffic and havd had to erect barricades so that the fans can't crowd the players as they are leaving in their cars. Just look at the number of people waiting to greet their team on a wet and cold Sunday! It literally brings a tear to my eye. My favorite part about the video is that it is not shot by a fan. No - it is shot from the perspective of the team's offensive co-ordinator. At one point, you can hear him say "good God" at the number of people lining the streets. I just love how excited the coaches and players are that the fans are so supportive of this team. I get goosebumps!!!

Drew Brees was just named the King of the Krewe of Bacchus (of the the super-krewes that rides on the Sunday of Mardi Gras weekend). The parade will be exactly one week after the Superbowl. If this is the way we celebrate the team's homecoming following a regular season win over the Falcons, can you imagine what the crowds will look like following the greatest win in team history.

Santa, if you're reading this, all I want for Christmas is a Black and Gold Superbowl!!!
