I was raised in the lower ninth ward of New Orleans. I have watched the Saints from their opening kickoff. I saw John Gilliam's runback and expected the Saints to champions by 1970. Boy, was I wrong. I got in the games by selling sodas at the games. I couldn't afford the games. I saw the Atlanta blow us out, the Dempsey kick (I have a Dempey signed ball and a Doug Atkins autograph), I saw the two games we gave Atlanta in one season to go 8 - 8 and miss the playoffs for Archie. I have a friend, who named his son Archie. I am now exiled to Charlotte and hear nothing but Panther stuff. I do get to see our boys once a year though. By the way, they still claim to have the best defense in the league. I'm pushing 60 and have one wish. I want to see the
Saints in the Super Bowl before I die, unlike Hap and Buddy D. I miss those guys. Mission accomplished and we won. I bet Hap and Buddy D. are dancing every day in heaven.
