Here's the Nov. 1, 1966 States Item newspaper. Also, for those that may have missed it, here is a very good article by Jeff Duncan detailing the very interesting way the Saints came to be.

They say everything goes downhill after 40. Maybe it's the opposite for the Saints. Is it possible for the Saints to go uphill for the next 40. Can we have 40 years of winning instead of losing? Thoughts.

I say they get a brithday present from the Bucs, "W" remember the saints website predicted W10-0, I think we will score a lot more points than that but I will definitely take it.

Notice the article on the States-Item front page...

"States-Item Holds Contest to Find Name for Team"

I can remember when they held that contest, but I never heard who actually won by coming up with the name: Saints

Anyone know for sure? :scratch:

I had planned to wear a Saints pullover shirt to work today in honor of their birthday, but couldn't find it and had to grab something else.

Oh well, Happy Birthday anyway to all of the Whodats celebrating this occasion.
