Saints season tix sales up 600 percent, could go up with addition of Brees
That's right, sports fans. Six hundred percent.
It's a solid signal to the NFL brass that the Saints will be supported in New Orleans.
These sales could increase with the addition of sought-after free agent quarterback Drew Brees, who said the following at his introductory press conference as a Saint:
"I think people in the rest of the country that haven't been here, and I was one of those people. I think you just assume that much of the area was devastated, and I think you just kind of have this picture in your mind of what it looked like. (But I saw) the city is very alive, and you've got a lot of great citizens of New Orleans that are very committed to rebuilding the city and that are just so excited about Saints football."Reportedly, even Tom Benson was elated with the signing of Brees - at the tune of $60 million for six years. Perhaps ole Tommy Boy has turned a corner?
Well, let's just wait and watch, shall we...
