That Time I Caught a Saints Game in the Superdome!

Before I get to my Saints recap, I have a big Monday Morning Gossip announcement. Starting next week Kimberlee of I Have A Degree In This will be my linkup co-host! If you're not familiar with her and her blog, get acquainted! She's awesome and going to be a great addition to MMG. Next week, head over to her blog for the blog hop! Next week I have another big announcement so she'll be hosting the link up, then we'll co-host together from then on!

Now, are you ready for some football?!

Last week I made the trip of a lifetime - all the way to New Orleans to see my favorite team, the Saints, play at home in the Superdome. This was the first time even seeing them play since LA doesn't have a team and San Diego is in a different conference. You can imagine how excited I was!

We had amazing seats, sitting at the 25 yard line in the ninth row. SO close to the field!

This last picture is of my favorite player, who happens to be the best tight end in the league, Jimmy Graham. This was his dunk celebration after one of his two touchdowns of the game.

On Wednesday I'll do a recap of the other activities from the trip. Come back to see what else we did!

I'm also linking up for Are You Ready for Some Football & This Weekend I.

Those look like amazing seats!! To be that close, must have been awesome! Glad you had a great time!

Yay! So glad you were able to make it to NOLA for a game (that they also won, which makes it even better)! Watching football live always beats watching it on T.V. Can't wait to hear more about your trip :)
