Re: You've been a Saint's fan for how long . . .

Interesting. I posted, then I voted, and my post went POOF!

Here's a copy of the text:

20-40+

Season ticket holder while growing up. Started in 1973 in Tulane Stadium. Opened up the Spuerdome.

Lost touch for a while in college. Too broke and too busy to follow.

Picked up with a vengance after finishing. Attending Saints games in Atlanta, traveling to New Orleans for December and playoff games in the 80's and the 90's.

Was there for the first playoff game in the Superdome against the ViQueens.

Was there when Hakeem dropped the ball.

Flew to Chicago for the NFC championship. It was freezing that day.

Going to see the beatdown of the 'clowns today.

Certainly hope to spend a balmy weekend in Miami in early February whether I can get into the game or not.

SFIAH

The Saints have been to playoffs 4 of the last 5 years and a own a SB championship.

I can hardly believe this happened in my lifetime.

Re: You've been a Saint's fan for how long . . .

My 1st grade classmate's father was an original minority shareholder in the Saints, so we went to games that 1st season and had season tickets until the mid 80's when I moved away. I guess that's 43 years.

Now I'm depressed.

Big Salute to the longtime Tulane Stadium guys, like Xan, Saintlyone, SFIAH, and my good friend, SupeDome, along with many others.

I'm in the 20-40 category.
26 years.

I was a Bum Refugee, and of course, hit it off well with Louisiana.
I'm not a native, but neither were the guys who died defending the
Alamo, and you cant really question their dedication.
