NEW ORLEANS -- The future of the New Orleans Saints wears a pair of ultrachic black boots that ascend to her knees, not because it's comfortable but because the team has been on a roll since she put them on and you don't mess with fate. She cannot ... sit ... down, at least not for more than a few minutes. Did you know that the average executive chair is too big for a woman? Rita Benson LeBlanc, who can't be much more than a bowl of gumbo over 100 pounds, does. Behind her desk is a large gray exercise ball. That's where she sits.

The executive vice president/part owner of the Saints bought the ball because, ultimately, she was going to do sit-ups while she was at work. That didn't work out; she was way too busy for that. Now, it's just used for good posture. But LeBlanc rolls the ball out in the middle of her office on a winter Tuesday recently and belts out at least three sit-ups, just to demonstrate.

I have always been a big fan of hers. She worked hard to get where she is.....fact is I believe that she kept the Saints out of San Antonio. She has been very instrumental in the decisions made since Katrina.

Her goodwill and her efforts toward the city's growth and good name are her hallmarks.

Great article, too bad I read the comments. I was tired and sleepy and ready to go to bed, now I'm pissed off. Those people need to be b!#&h slapped for the terrible things they said.

I was just talking about this with my girlfriend as we read the comments on ESPN.

Those comments are the reason why I read here at blackandgold.com and just pretty much stay here when I'm online.
99% of the comments are ESPN and NOLA.com are total trolling ignorance. Occasional a funny comment is sandwiched in there.

I just like it here and try to keep it that way.
