IT'S NOT A DREAM ANYMORE ... OUR BELOVED SAINTS ARE GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL!

Less than 4 and a half years ago, our city was under water. The roof of the Superdome had been ripped off and there was talk it would never re-open again. There were those who said to just stick a knife in us, that we were done. So many just left us for dead.

I rode down Elysian Fields and the lower 9th Ward this weekend and there is still widespread devastation all across the area. So many of us have never really totally recovered. We will in time.

But tonight, after so much horror and pain, trying to just have a normal life, trying to come back in so many ways, we are all so very happy tonight.

There's a cool breeze blowin' in the Crescent City

"The Kick"

Win or lose, this is such a special team. We felt it in pre-season, and it is so wonderful to see what it has accomplished.

The entire area is electric. It is has not even sunk it yet. What a classic playoff game!

And what a wonderful nine days this has been!

It was awesome. Fireworks and noise all over the area. It still doesn't seem real though. More surreal.
