I remember watching. I was only 6, but I was jumping up and down cheering with my family when we scored on the very first kickoff. I thought we must have the best team ever! Anyway, many, many years later...and you know the rest of the story.

There was, of course, a big build up to the first season and lots of anticipation. Most of the kids on our street were big Colt fans because of Johnny Unitas. My friend and I were Colt fans too because that's who the big kids liked. But when the Saints were formed, we announced our change in allegiance and got pushed around in a good natured way until everyone got on board with the idea of having a new favorite team that was New Orleans' own.

The Saints started well but farted and fell. John Gilliam returned the opening kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown and gave the Rams a good fight but ended losing by a score of 27 to 13.The thing most memorable to me about the games in Tulane stadium was that when the Saints made a good play everybody would stomp and cheer and the whole damn stadium would shake .They finished the first season with a 3 and 11 record but it was a hell of a lot of fun.
