The Saints coming back to New Orleans...

This photo shows construction crews repairing the Superdome.

After Hurricane Katrina many feared that the Superdome would be abandoned and the Saints football team would relocate to San Antonio or some other city. The good news is that the Saints will be back for the coming season...and repairs on the Superdome are ahead of schedule.

There is actually considerable excitement over the upcoming football season. Most games are almost sold out. Of course much of the city is still an abandoned wasteland. Hopefully, the return of the Saints will be a psychological boost.
