NEW ORLEANS -- Mainly due to a resourceful cab driver who knew some back streets, I have made it into the Superdome much easier and earlier than I expected. By the way, the cab driver also compared the Saints to the 1985 Chicago Bears. Might be a little early on that one, but he might have a point.
It’s crazy in the streets outside and will get the same way in here once the gates open. They’re practicing a halftime show on the field right now and I won’t reveal the details of that. We’ll have much more as the game gets closer.
But, in the meantime, here is some more video of the New Orleans Times Picayune’s Jeff Duncan and I previewing tonight’s game. As most of you know, I generally avoid making predictions on games, but Jeff asked for one, so I gave it to him. I picked the Saints.
