New Orleans Saints looking forward to Hall of Fame visit to see Super Bowl XLIV exhibit
 
METAIRIE, La. – When the Saints agreed to play in the preseason opener in Canton, Ohio in 2007, the team toured the Pro Football Hall of Fame and left it feeling a little bit empty.

They were playing the Pittsburgh Steelers, a team full of history and with exhibits over the Hall of Fame. The Saints, on the other hand, had nothing of note in the museum, nothing to poke their chest out and feel special about.

Five years later, the Saints are once again set to tour the Pro Football Hall of Fame. And this time, there’s plenty to look at.

“Now we go back and there’s the display with the championship and two great Saints players are now up there being represented,” linebacker Scott Shanle said. “It’s funny to see how much stuff has changed in five years but it’s encouraging and it’ll be fun.”

Shanle better enjoy just touring it because thats as close as he will ever get to the hall of fame.

Shanle has a Super Bowl ring; a lot of players in the HOF can't say that!

I heard that the team was disappointed on their last trip. They tried to be politically correct though.
