Saints forced to wait, watch from California

Espn.com-AP Aug 31

FREMONT, Calif. -- Though the Saints are safe in California while Hurricane Katrina ravages New Orleans, receiver Joe Horn plans to use some of the team's three days off this weekend to visit his beleaguered hometown.

"I was going to keep that quiet," Horn said Wednesday in the lobby of the Saints' team hotel on the eve of their preseason finale against the Oakland Raiders. "I'm going to try to help, donate money, try to feed the families who have been in the Superdome, do whatever it takes.

"If I have to spend a million dollars to get food, anything monetarily, I'll do that."

According to general manager Mickey Loomis, the Saints will fly directly to San Antonio following the game against the Raiders, and will remain there to prepare for the season opener Sept. 11 at Carolina.

During a team meeting Monday, a few players questioned whether playing a game at this time was appropriate -- but most players thought it might be a morale booster for the city flooded by the hurricane.

"It might be a ray of light for the people who can't get out of town," tight end Shad Meier said.
