This is a tourist blog, and I have never written about sports, but I cannot contain my excitement that the Saints won the Super Bowl. I am from New Orleans and it's one of the reasons we call our vacation rental Villa Orleans. I moved down from New Orleans back in 1990, but my brother moved because he lost his business and clientele from Hurricane Katrina.
I remember going to Saint's games when I was eight at Tulane Stadium. I remember when the Saints were so bad, we wore paper bags over our heads because we were too ashamed to let others know we were Saints fans. I watched games Saints games in Puerto Rico. This season I watched most of their games. For the Saints to win the Super Bowl has been a dream for many New Orleanians. I know there are many Saints fans spread all over the country, because of Katrina.
I know that there is a celebration like Mardi Gas going on in the French Quarter now. I know that this celebration will go on until tomorrow night. I know that tomorrow New Orleans will not stop celebrating this win. Go Saints!
