While the Jackson State University band was on the field Sunday, the lil Circle K blimp lost radio contact and bumped into some fans and the side of the Dome near the pressbox. It went from the terrace, to the club level and finally the plaza about the 20-yard line.

We sit on the opposite side of the Dome in Sect. 123, right above the Emergency Exit sign where the blimp comes out and the radio controller guy stands. He high-tailed it over there when the blimp went crazy.

I was like "oh, no...it's Black Sunday Part II."

Yes it came down right in front of me in Section 146 more than once it was finally caught in the isle about 10 rows down from me.

That was one of the best halftime shows the Saints have put on in a while. I was hoping it would come my way.

One of the fins was broken off of it, so I think it was out of control.

Not to threadjack or anything, but...

At an IceGators game years ago, they used to have a remote controlled blimp that would drop $100. I was sitting in section where Edwin Edwards and Candy were sitting and the blimp was heading right for him. Everyone in the section got up and started blowing and waving their programs to turn the blimp away. Guess Fast Eddie always attracted money.

Wow I've heard about this many times, but I've never seen it or heard the audio. That's wild

So is this thing at every game? I've never seen an indoor blimp. That would be awesome.
