The casual strolls around town with his wife on his arm bring gawking looks. He's stopped as fans want to shake his hand and snap pictures. Some even want autographs.

Too often since the New Orleans Saints won Super Bowl XLIV following the 2009 season, Saints owner Tom Benson and his wife Gayle are treated like one of their superstar players or his handsomely paid coach.

It's a new experience for the 85-year-old Benson, who prefers to stay largely in the background, and one that despite his smiles and handshakes with fans still makes him uneasy at times.
