Who dat won the Super Bowl? The Saints’ incredible Super Bowl XLIV victory in 2010 was the culmination of the city’s 43-year collective dream (to say nothing of the end of 43 years of frustration), in which the beloved [‘]Aints finally won the big one, becoming a metaphor for the city’s comeback, and a source of frenzied pride. A scandal here and there has barely dampened the enthusiasm for this team, and if you’re the least bit of a football fan, try to get yourself inside the Superdome (p. ###) for a Saints game—there’s really nothing like it. Your best bet is the NFL Ticket Exchange (www.ticketexchangebyticketmaster.com). Otherwise, the pregame party at Champions Square, outside the Superdome (or any sports bar, really), is an excellent place to start your game day.
