Why do you love the Saints?

I fell in love with New Orleans during my first trip in 1995 for Mardi Gras, but I didn't become a Saints fan until Oct 5, 1997 when I went to my first Saints/Bears game up in Chicago. I went with a group of 20 rowdy guys from N'awlins; it was COLD and I was sitting in the visitors section (aka the 'wrong side' to a Chicagoan in Soldier Field), but the warmth and excitement of the NO fans was contagious, so I loved every minute of watching the Saints beat the Bears that day.... I've been hooked ever since! Plus Sean Payton's from Naperville, IL which is about 40 minutes from where I live in Chicago... gotta support one of our own! ;)

If you are from New Orleans/ Louisiana, which part are you from?

I transplanted to Chicago from the East coast years ago, but I almost moved to Metairie, LA in 2000. Instead, I just visit the French Quarter every few months.

Who is your favorite Saints player?

It was Jeremy Shockey, but now that he's gone, Jenkins is my guy. Although Mark Ingram could give him a run for his money in my book... we'll have to see how he does in regular season.

Are the Saints going to make it to the Superbowl this year?

Heck yea! And to make sure they do, I go down every year for the home opener... givin 'em some mojo!

Introduction

I've lived in NJ, OH, GA, and settled in Chicago 20+ years ago, but my heart's been in NOLA (and with the Saints) since my first trip down there!
