Saints and Superdome Tips (14)

New Orleans Sports Scene

All right, so as of November 2002, New Orleans now has 2 major sports franchises. First, we have the long standing New Orleans Saints of the NFL and the recent addition of the New Orleans Hornets of the NBA. Also within close proximity is the AAA franchise of the Houston Astros of MLB. The team has produced some real good talent over the past few years, most notably All-Star Lance Berkman. UNO and Tulane also have the normal array of college athletic teams.

Louisiana Superdome

The huge structure is the place where the local team plays, a modern indoor stadium that has already hosted 6 super bowls. But during our visit there wasn’t any match (the famous SAINTS play here) so we didn’t have the chance to go inside and just took this pic from the highway.

The superdome is also used for big concerts, presidential conventions etc. And -sad but true- thousands of people transfered here during the city's evacuation when Katrina hit. There used to be tours inside the stadium but I didnt see any leaflet so I guess they dont do it anymore.

Ironic their team is called the Saints

We saw the superdome on our trip to New Orleans. We were there long after the mess with Katrina but it is where the people were being housed during all that mess and it where a lot of crime was committed

We didn't see any sports while we were there but had no desire to.. ironic their team is called the saints when so much crime riots, rapes, theft and turning on each other.

Football Madness!

Football, especially college games, attracts huge crowds to New Orleans. If you're going to a game, be prepared for peak hotel rates during such well-publicized events as the Bayou Classic game. The streets will be choked with traffic and tourists. For this reason, we spent time in New Orleans before Thanksgiving, then left town against the flow of traffic to visit our family in Rapides Parish.

And the Saints Go Marching In....

While not long ago you would see people with paper bags over their heads at games because the team was so bad, currently these guys are pretty good. A game at the Superdome is fun anyway. We almost lost this NFL franchise last year, because the city wouldn't pony up the $$$$ to keep them. That's where the LA taxpayers come in! Leave it to the state of Louisiana to determine that spending cash to keep the NFL in town, and bring in an NBA franchise is more important than giving a raise to some of the worst paid teachers in the country. But, I digress...

Saints Spring Training Facility

Next to the Zeyphers stadium is the New Orleans Saints spring training facility. If you are looking for autographs, this is the place to come. Obviously, you have to show up during spring training, but the field and players are very accessible. And, its free!

Equipment Bring your pens and football cards!

See the New Orleans Saints play

We attended the New Orleans Saints-Houston Texans game on September 25th, 2011, in which the Saints won an exciting come-from-behind game 40-33. On this day both Drew Brees and Matt Shaub had impressive games, each throwing for 370 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Saints were down 10-0 in the first quarter and again 26-17 in the fourth quarter before scoring three touchdowns in the fourth quarter to win by 7.

The Saints were established as an expansion team in 1966 and they played in Tulane University's stadium from their inception until the Superdome was completed in 1975. The majority of their existence was marked by abysmal records and mediocre players, as it took nearly 21 years just for their first winning season in 1987. Their first playoff win came in 2000, after 35 years in existence. In 2009, the Saints won their first championship, Super Bowl XLIV, beating the Colts 31-17.

The Superdome

This is the worlds largest steel constructed covered arena which is unobstructed by posts. It is home of the city's professional football team - the New Orleans Saints. The arena holds the worlds records for an indoor concert of 87,500 people which was for the Rolling Stones concert in 1981. It has also played host to more Superbowls than any other facility. With all the buildings attached to the Superdome, the complex covers 52 acres. The height is 272 ft and the diameter of the dome is 680ft.

Home of the New Orleans Saints

American Football
Since Rob is the biggest sports fan there is, we had to check out the Superdome. It's really hard to miss since you pass it coming into New Orleans from the airport.

Equipment The Superdome was built in 1975 and seats about 100,000 people.
The Superdome played a vital role during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. During our visit any of the floats for Mardi Gras were stored here.

Bloody MAry's at the Saints gam

We had the thrill of watching the Saints win (only an exhibition game) but the real winner was the Bloody Mary's. We drank a lot of them on our vacation, but they were more fun at the Superdome, greens galore, as much of a salad as a drink.

It Will Always Be the LOUISIANA Superdome, To Me!

My first REAL professional football game (I had been to one pre-season game prior) was on December 4, 2011 - Detroit Lions vs. New Orleans Saints at the Superdome. Very exciting for this New Orleans girl! My husband is a huge Lions fan, which made for some friendly rivalry.

The Dome (as it is known) is one of the LOUDEST football arenas in the league. It was fun to check out the outfits of the other fans - being from New Orleans, costuming is almost a religion.

Equipment Since the Saints won the Super Bowl in 2009 (hurray!), it is no longer possible to get cheap tickets. We bought ours from a scalper on game day, but still paid $20 over ticket price for each ticket. We thought it was worth while and had a wonderful time. You can also check out after-market ticket sale websites like stubhub.com to get tickets.
