Huge anniversary coming for Saints
By Pat Yasinskas
We’ve got a real treat for New Orleans Saints fans over on our main NFL page. Colleague Seth Wickersham and a host of others have put together a tremendous package about one of the great moments in Saints’ history.
We’re not talking about the Super Bowl victory. We’re going way back into history. We’re only a few days away from the 40th anniversary of Tom Dempsey’s record-setting 63-yard field goal.
We’ve got readers of all ages on this blog, and I’m guessing a lot of you fall into the same category I do on Dempsey’s kick. I was born before it, but was too young to follow sports at that point. I’ve been aware of the basics of Dempsey’s kick for years, but never really knew many of the details.
Wickerhsam’s piece has all the details. I highly encourage you go get over there and check out the whole package.
