Anyway, He will be taking the trip as well (his first to N.O) so it'll be nice for him to have some allies lol

Davey, I went to the Lions @ Saints game in December. The saints fans were AMAZING. I avoided wearing my Lions jersey out downtown because although the fans were great, I would not want one of the waiters in a restaurant to let the chef know "shrimp po boy...and it's for a Lions fan!". I don't need any "extra sauce" on my food. I'm just paranoid that way.
Inside the dome, there was friendly ribbing from the Saints fans, but there were also plenty of compliments/friendly things said about my team. I've been to plenty of away games, and New Orleans is BY FAR the best road trip you will make. Have fun!

It's all GOOD!

I've found the Georgia Dome a pretty unfriendly place for Saints fans. FoulCons are the only fans I'd support being uncivil toward here, eye-for-an-eye and all that ...
I'm not surprised- you get that mob mentality on MARTA and at the stations. Once inside it's usually more cordial.

Two years ago (after we won the SB) I was at the Atl Monday or Sunday night game that we needed to win for the wildcard. The guy behind me looks at my Saints shirt and starts yelling "Raise your hand if you're a wildcard team, Raise you're hand if you're a wildcard team!"
I turned around and said, " I can't, my Super Bowl ring is too heavy."
Even Falcon fans were smiling at him.

My ugliest experiences at the Georgia Dome were during the Vick years. Something of a thug mentality among FoulCons fans in those days, and my wife just got sick of the bullcrap & wouldn't go back. As she said then, "we can't afford to pay money for that."

I've never been back to the Georgia Dome for a Saints game since the MARTA thing ... guess that woulda been the '05 or '06 season. Maybe they're a little better now that we've won a Super Bowl!

Hey guys. So a guy over on the Skins board says Galactic is going to be playing at Tipitina's the Saturday night before the game. I think I should go check it out... I hear great things.

If I was coming in from out of town, that is probably what I would do. They are a really good band. I'm local, so I only go see them when it's free (no cover), or if I can get my name on the guest list, LOL. But I saw them back in May and they really put on a good show.

would be my suggestion as well, unless you go in for Voodoo or Jazzfest, they're always there as well.

Re: Opening Day Sept 9 Skins @ Saints

Game is 26 days away and only 24 days until I fly out. Wow time is going by very quickly.

What do you guys want to see from your Saints in preparation for opening day?

Galactic would be an excellent choice, and Tips is a great venue. I'd recommend it highly!
