Re: Reflect on the emotions of being a Saints fan.

I think the Saints organization is bi-polar, with all the ups and downs. At least that would be my diagnosis.....

I was in New Orleans at both those times. I attended the game against the Gnats when they clinched a playoff spot for the first time. Bourbon Street went crazy to the early till about 4 am and fans were celebrating all week long!

in 91, I went to the Falcons game and really saw what that Saints/Pigeons rivalry is all about. Unfortunately, the Saints lost that game in overtime but it was a fun vacation.

GO GET THAT TITLE!!!
