Why the Saints ? I wanted to support a team who’s city I had at least visited – and ideally seen my first NFL game there. Sadly all my visits to the States have been off season thus far . But a long time ago (before Katrina ) I stayed in New Orleans right on Bourbon Street. I loved it. I did the usual stuff -a trip on the Nachez Mississippi steamboat , a Voodoo walking tour around the town & graveyard , and a visit to a Southern plantation house. I drank a few Dark-and-Stormies , listened to some jazz, checked out the pole dance bars and finally took a trip around the Superdome. No-one was playing but I bought a team hat as a souvenir and I decided the least I could do was to be a Saints fan from that day on.
