Re: Greatest Saints memory in the Superdome?

It still has to be the Return to the Dome game.... My god the emotion in that building that night... I swore to my 16 (at the time) year old son that I would not cry... but when they played the Saints are Coming and then a shot of Hollywood Joe Horn in the tunnel firing up the team.... the lady that sits in front of me turned around and said "I NEVER thought we would be in here again"... with tears running down her eyes... I totally lost it...

Number two of course would be Hartley's kick

Hakeem Dropped the ball... remember we had never won a playoff game at that point and it appeared for all the world that the Rams were going to stage a massive comeback...

Number 4 would be Duuueeecccee running out the clock to send us to our first Championship game

Number 5 for me will probably never hit anyone's radar.... and was actually a loss...Circa 1983 (??) we stood at 8-7 playing the Rams yet again... first winning season and a playoff on the line....the Dome Patrol was just being formed.. we dominated on defense and led 19-17 with 2 minutes to play... Bum forgoes a long FG by Andersen and we punted... When the defense came out on the field the crowd was as loud as I have ever heard... including last year... the offense was standing on the benchs waving towels... absolute pandemoneum... until the Rams drove down... Our CB (forget his name)... allows their receiver to step out of bounds with 3 seconds... and then Landsford kicks a long field goal to beat us.... the Dome went from jet engine loud to absolute silence... absolute silence for about 15 seconds... then slowly everyone started clapping... not cheering.. just clapping... thanking that team for getting us so close..

Re: Greatest Saints memory in the Superdome?

There are so many memories that I have had at the 'dome and just watching the Saints. But my personal favourite has to be when I took my then girlfriend (I actually don't like that word but can't think of a better one at the moment) to the 'dome for her birthday and we beat the Falcons 22-16. Just the look on her face as she looked out on the field for the first time was a memory I will cherish forever. Now my wife, she is one of the most fervent Saints fans I know, though to be honest I know very few, but her passion is undeniable and woe betide anyone that even hints that they are not keen on the Black and Gold (knows all the words to Get Crunk' too)

Re: Greatest Saints memory in the Superdome?

Chiefs/Saints Nov 14th 2004...I had been to 7 games on the west coast..the saints had LOST EVERY FREAKIN ONE OF THEM....met Fred thomas on bourbon the night before (never asked him why he was out before a game) ..anyway, he noticed my brother and I during warm ups at the game the next day... had security escort us on the field..the night was better than my wedding, AND I DONT CARE IF SHE READS THIS. He told my brother and I we were the best saints fans he had EVER met. ( SO SORRY M Frs..) we kicked the chiefs ars, but one thing sticks out, I remember the chiefs fans singing during the national anthem " And the hooome of theeeee CHIEFS" and I was pissed and have hated them ever since. The Dbag sitting behind us asked us why we were cheering during first downs????? I though WTF when this guy was all surprised we were cheering...anyway, it was awesome!!!! I will post some pics as soon as I can figure out how to
