Think of all those original fans who never saw the Super Bowl win 44 years later, 43 years after they actually started playing! Here's to them and the Saints organization! Who Dat?!!!

I think it was actually awarded on November 1, 1966 with play starting in 1967. But regardless, Happy Birthday Saints!
