This Saints season may be cursed, but it's not because the Dome was built beside an old cemetery

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; It might be easier to swallow last Sunday's thrashing of the Saints by the Carolina Panthers if supernatural causes were to blame. How else to explain a 41-10 loss -- at home in the Dome? Every Who Dat has heard ...

Every Who Dat has heard the folklore, and it's usually told in tones ranging from jest to rue: that the Saints' travails can be traced to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome having been built over a cemetery.

Alas, only the living can get the blame for this season's dispirited performance.
In fact, the story of that not-so-final resting place, the Girod Street Cemetery, suggests that street improvements pose more risks to cemeteries than cemeteries do to football teams.

Interesting, .

"Despite that the deed allowed Catholics to be entombed there, most people called the new resting place 'the Protestant Cemetery.' Others called it 'the American burying ground,' while Creoles called it Cimitiere des Heretiques.

I don't speak a lot of French, but "Cimitiere des Heretiques" ... is that kind of an insult? . Sounds like it to me, .
