The city of New Orleans gets their NFL team back as the Saints will play their first regular season home game in the city since 2004.
They play the Falcons in the Louisiana Superdome....which is the symbol for all that went wrong after Hurricane Katrina. It's tattered roof and stories of the horror inside still affect us over a year later. But the refurbishing of the dome and the beauty it now holds can be the catalyst of a possible rebirth of this great American city. The Saints won't save New Orleans just by playing football games there; but the fact that one of the big businesses is coming back to plant it's feet in the city should help other companies and people to want to do the same.
The city was far from perfect before Katrina hit....but with everyone willing to try to build a new New Orleans from this disaster...an even greater New Orleans can emerge.
The game is on ESPN at 8:00p.....so please watch.
