But here is one that was significant to me, well before that.
December 31, 1990

Los Angeles Rams were the vistors to the Superdome for the last game of the that season. No matter that we were really not a good team. I was there.
There was drama in the last seconds when Morten Andersen got a second chance to kick the game winning field goal and put us into the postseason with a pathetic 8-8 record.

There was of course the Dome Patrol;
Sam Mills, Rickey Jackson, Vaughan Johnson, Pat Swilling.

My favourite player of that time; a certain Dalton Hilliard. I still have my old 21 Saints shirt from them times.

The offseason following Katrina - the excitement around hiring Payton, getting Drew Brees, drafting Reggie, watching Colston destroy in pre-season games. I could really feel something special was around the corner.

Yes, THIS. Regardless how you feel about Reggie, he lit everyone up about the Saints, and drafting him showed that the Team was serious about winning. Honestly, I didnt know squat about Payton. I still thought we would SUCK. But I was just happy New Orleans kept the Saints, even though I live closer to SA. I wouldve quit the NFL, had that happened.

-- Then training camp in Jackson, which I attended, was electric, and so were preseason games in Jackson and Shreveport, as the Saints were conducting their own old school NFL Style Barnstrorming Tour, making new fans, and solidifying old ones in outlying areas.

-- Pierre Freakin Thomas coming out of obscurity to blow up and kick out the big draft stud, and make the team.

-- U2 & Greenday showing up for the reopening of the Dome, and being surprisingly non-political about it.

-- All leading up for me to my favorite moment, since it happened in MY endzone, the Girod St. one.-- Gleason's Block, the moment The Curse lifted.

I attended the first playoff win, so Hakim dropping the ball has to be it for me.
