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

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; My family moved to New Orleans in 1978 when I was three years old and we were there for six years. So I guess that gives me 31 years. Man, that makes me feel old....

Well I didn't have my dad around to enforce a team on me (he's a Vikings fan) but the little league team around here that I played on was the Saints. So around '94 I declared the Saints are my team!!!

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

In 1973 I opened up a pack of football cards, saw Archie, and told my dad, a long-time Steeler season ticket holder, that this was my new favorite player and the Saints were my new favorite team. He laughed.

Now he goes with with me to 2 games a year and cheers as loud as I do. Saw my first game in 1978 at 3 Rivers. Pretty sure I represented at least 50% of those cheering for the Saints. About 250 losses later, I am still here and loving it.

Had to wear earplugs and take 4 different pills at half-time today because I have a severe sinus infection, but I had to see a 13th win in my backyard.

20-40+. Grew up in Shreveport and everyone knows thats Cowboys land, went off to school somewhere that showed Saints games. Was already a fan but from 83 to now there is no looking back..

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

I've been a Saints fan since 2003, I am new compared to most of you. It's hard for me to see most games, as I live in Toronto Canada. My first live Saints game was in week 3 this year in Buffalo. That is where I heard about B&G from some other Saints fans tailgating across from Bills stadium, from Shreveport, La. That was like a dream come true!! Who Dat from Toronto A.K.A "T.O"

About 20 years.

I became a Chargers fan about 30 years ago. As I stated watching more football, Saints became one of my other favorite teams. Especially after visiting NO a few times and going to a Saints game.

2002, so I'm in the 5-10 category. That's when I met my wife, who was a Saints fan, and brought me on board. I've been through the weekly Haslett press conferences ("football's hard"), the Sullivan pick (ugh), and the meltdown at the end of 2002 culminating with the loss to the crappy Vikings on the Culpepper fumbled 2-point conversion.
