The Saints come home to a heart warming party: and hang out with grateful, while a little tipsy, fans of the city's historically maligned, now proud franchise. If this doesn't bring a tear to your eye, you dont like football. It brought a couple to mine, and I am a Philadelphia phan.

good for those fans that have stuck with the team through thick and thin... and an "adda boy" for the coach who brought them here!!!

Good stuff. By next year, Reggie Bush may no longer have a Heisman, but he might have a Super Bowl appearance. This is a team that has no excuse to not take it to the next level next season. Imagine the party then!!!

That was one hell of a story. A real tear jerker.

Good story. I hope the Saints can get some linebacker and secondary help in the offseason. If so, I see no reason why they couldn't or shouldn't be considered as one of the top contenders in the NFC.

Great story and we have up here a few classless Bears Fans that are complete AH's I wouldn't believe it normally but I saw a Houston Chicago game back in '89 where a fight broke out after the bears lost can't apologize because I can't speak out for all Bears Fans but it was truly not true Bears fans that did this to end this I am so happy the saints fans still support their team and I wish them the best of luck in the future except when they play the Bears Go Saints

To go from not having a home game last year and thinking about re-locating even, to 1 game from the Superbowl? I mean come on...this has got to be one of the best stories in sports history. You can make a movie out of this.
