I can think of about 30 years worth of reasons why not for most people.

For me it was an introduction of New Orleans at an early age by my dad taking me to see the Preservation Hall jazz band in the late 70's, when the NFL started being shown here i used to check on the Jets (having NY connects) and and the Saints, then when the Saints had their first real success in 87 I firmed my allegiance, and sealed it when the vikings booted us out of the playoffs Jan 3 1988. The fans didn't care about losing they were just happy about getting that far, it struck a chord and boom here i am today.
