Saints complete full season sellout - San Antonio, eat your heart out...; Saints having positive impact on N.O. psyches
In the best way imaginable.
On Tuesday, Saints owner Tom Benson announced that the Saints have sold out the Superdome for the entire season. Benson's quotes were thrilling, as he compared the Saints support to New York, Chicago, and San Francisco (presumably during the Montana/Young years). Here are some tidbits:
"We're now competing on that basis with places like New York, San Francisco ... Chicago and other major cities. This is just tremendous. People in New York and other places can't hardly believe what you all have done and people in this whole area have done."
Benson is asking all Saints fans to wear black and gold Monday, and for New Orleans area businesses to let their workers off early to enjoy the festivities around the Superdome - whether or not they have tickets.
It's a great day.
More to come tomorrow...
