Papa Brees, Papa Mali, and Saints Superstitions

Tonight, the New Orleans Saints open their preseason at home against the Tennessee Titans. Today in The New Orleans Advocate, I talk to musicians about their levels of Saints fandom. Some are indifferent, some are emotionally wracked, some are diehard and will face hostile audiences in other teams’ stadiums to see the Saints. After I filed the story, musicians continued to send me thoughts and comments, so I moved some to here. 

Gleason Gras to Kick Off the Saints' Season

[Updated] In its first two years, Gleason Gras was plagued by rain that - *ahem* - dampened attendance. On Friday, Team Gleason and the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation present the event when it returns to Champions Square, this time doubling as a pep rally to start the 2013 season for the New Orleans Saints, who'll play the Atlanta Falcons Sunday at noon in the Superdome.
