Fujita: Not hard to be a Saint in this city

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Hazards were ever-present, and this place needed to be rescued. Maybe the Saints were up to the task?

Fujita: Not hard to be a Saint in this city

Hazards were ever-present, and this place needed to be rescued. Maybe the Saints were up to the task? Would that be overstating the importance of football?
It was literally minutes before our scheduled departure. Our driver was in the parking lot, engine running. With the image of those X's forever imprinted in my mind, I looked at my wife and said:
"This is where we belong."
We canceled the rest of my free agency visits and I became a New Orleans Saint that instant.

I really liked Fujita. 1/3 of the "Oreo" LB's.

Try walking into your uncle's home, a WWII vet, and telling his daughter to bring gloves and disposable clothing being a LA National Guardsman. Thanks Scott.

That place. Those people.

Enough already.

Unless you've been to that place and spent some time with those people, then you just wouldn't get it.

Re: Fujita: Not hard to be a Saint in this city

@sfujita55: Why did I go to NOLA after Katrina? For a chance to be part of something bigger than fball.

Same reason most is are fanatical about our New Orleans Saints.

It's a team, a city, a culture... For a lot of us it has been a way of life we were born into.
