If you are sitting on the top row, and you are NOT banging the wall, you are not doing your job. Please trade seats with a fan who will do it.

Faddarekkid, I'm that *chick*, but as far as noise, who cares
who's makin' it, as long as it's MADE! But I agree with you,
if you're goin' to sit in the last row and not be part of that
racket, trade seats with someone who will. It's AWESOME
NOISE!!!

Nice story. Thanks. So what stuck out in your head about the Stadium and the game experience, when you were a kid?
mike , it was the most people i've seen in my life, i remember holding my dads pants pocket so i would'nt lose him getting to our seats, we were on the saints side about the 25 yardline 20 rows up about.it was so loud,nothing like the dome. i was in jaw dropping mode for the game. the uniforms were the best i ever saw. i remember my dad loved jimmy taylor because he loved him at lsu. i later became a abramowich fan. gillium ran back kick right in front of us. it was pandomonium. can't remember if we won or loss. i was 9 lol

GO NEW ORLEANS

Is anyone else surprised at how many vintage fans we have on B&G.com? I was not expecting all this!

wish we could still have that up-close-personal barricade thing again. those of you who went to Tiger Stadium after the Storm, might have got that deal, as the teams left behind barricades--since Tiger doesnt have the Get Smart tunnel system the Dome has. It was cool seeing the players up close. One of the few positives of that year. thanks, Bro.

It started that early -- wow. I didnt realize everyone was that excited even before we had a team. would love to hear more stories about this.

enquiring minds want to know. I know its a Tulane Stadium thread, but go for it. We'll stay on track, dont worry.

See, I get the feeling that the NFL experience in those days was much more powerful than now. They didnt have extra breaks for tv timeouts. You didnt have every inch covered with ads, and most of all, the people decided when to make noise-- it was spontaneous & real. I love going to the Dome, but I think I really missed out, not sitting in Tulane Sta.

As someone who worked up high for years, I dont consider discomfort a "fear," so much as a sign of intelligence. I never know when its going to bother me, sometimes. just have to remind myself to look at objects and focus on something. Thats my trick.

Great story, as always, LB.

bumping this thread up for our new members-- I notice we have some vintage fans recently joining.

One question I did have, and dont remember seeing an answer for:

Tulane Stadium was apparently built in sections, not all in one piece. Did this happen while the Saints were already playing, or was this pre-Saints?

Does anybody remember the earlier stages of Tulane?
