I thought I remembered previous HOF participants were granted some extra spots, but I may be thinking of some other reason.

The Saints last played in the Hall of Fame Game against the Pittsburgh Steelers to kick off the 2007 exhibition season.
...and have played the opening game for the season three times now.
The Saints have a great appeal in the NFL. It's still unbelievable to an oldtimer like me. Everyone used to love making fun of me and the Saints. Not any more.

Surprising that we got it again 5 years later; maybe they want Brees to pick out his stall now and put down a deposit.

THIS! This statement right here speaks truth!

I take so much pride in that fact, that I am not smart enough to come up with the words to express how much joy it brings me to how relivent the Saints are now. It almost puts a "Stamp" on my fanhood and love for this team. I remember my childhood friends making fun of me because I was a Saints fan (They all rooted for the Cowboys back then). Now when I see them wearing something "Saints", I just give a little smile. When really, in my head, I am jumping up and down on their faces screaming, "I FREAKIN TOLD YOU SO, YOU BANDWAGONING DILLHOLE!!!!"

We like in a great time Saints fans. Our loyalty has paid off.

Great, GREAT comment Shack!
