Born and raised in Hattiesburg, MS. Went to Southern Miss. Got married and moved to Birmingham, AL. Been here about six years. Love it. Not too humid, not too cold. Only downside is living so close to Atlanta.

All you Dallas guys really love it there? I\'ve visited friends in the past and never really felt too comfortable there. Too dadgummed big. I do love me some Fort Worth, though.... cowgirls and two-steppin... I need a moment.

Well since someone asked I\'ll rehash this story again.

When I was a kid I saw a Saints 49ers game on TV. My dad was a big 49ers fan (God rest his soul- but may his team head further south than he is) and I saw Archie get interviewed at half time. I saw this red-headed, freckle-faced kid and swore right then and there that he was Archie from my comic books. From that moment I watched every Saints game that our crappy cable service would pick up. I followed the stats in the Monday paper, I bought sports magazines and knew every player. I even had my little Saints jersey. Well, I soon figured out it wasn\'t Archie but by then I was hooked. I got my Saints tattoo in 1986 and loved every minute of the Dome Patrol days between 1988 and 1993. Of course I had to tolerate the old man rubbing the success of the niners at me. Ever since that day in the mid to late 70\'s I have lived and died every Sunday. I guarantee that I take football to a different level than most woulf consider sane. It dominates my whole life and my pay cheque (with cards, memorablia, flying to games, etc.) Thank god I have the most understanding wife and kids there could be. They know Daddy loves them.....he just loves football more. Don\'t even ask about the game day superstitions I go through!!!

Ok you need to tell us now, but since you brought it up why don\'t you start a new thread on that one. Game Day Rituals.

Question for the members??

Born in Chicago of two New Orleans based parents. Immediately moved to Louisville KY until I was 7YO. My father was accepted into a PhD program at Tulane so we moved to New Orleans. We were (and my mother, brother, and aunt still are) season ticket holders. Spent 8 years in the 600 end zone section of the SuperDome (and 3 years before that in Tulane Stadium) watching Saints football.

Went to Georgia Tech, landing in ATL Hell, 21 years ago.

I always attend the Saints Falcons game, and of course NFL Sunday ticket is a godsend beause I can actually follow the team during the season now. I\'ve suceeded in catching most of the playoff games including both the 44-10 drubbing to Minnesota, and more importantly the playoff win against the Rams.

SFIAH

The Saints have been to playoffs 4 of the last 5 years and a own a SB championship.

I can hardly believe this happened in my lifetime.

Well...........

I was born in the UK, I am British.

Moved now to the USA; in the wonderful state of NH.

First started to \"support\" the Saints in 83/84. British television started to show the Super Bowl the; XVII, WR v MD. Most of \"us lads\" chose WR, MD, with other over the next few years going for LA Raiders, SF , and NY teams. I stepped back and looked for a team that was not so obvious, that also had a town to go with it - if that makes sense.

Had to be THE New Orleans Saints. Stuck with them, can\'t let go. Been to New Orleans 4 times now. Seen them play dem sheep (when Morten kicked the field goal to go in tthe playoffs), SF and Tampa Bay. Also saw the Saints in England in the American Bowl against the Raiders.

On Sundays, only the Saints matter. e.g. when I was in England, the Saints were playing a late game against Seattle. I picked the game up on AF radio. With the difference in times, I got the win I wanted at about 4am Monday morning. Ho-hum up for work at 6am.

BTW my NH plate is \"SAINTS\"

Our Saints, Our City, Our Soul
Saints are individuals of exceptional holiness
