The Game Must Go On

Thursday night the Saints played their final preseason game against the Oakland Raiders, but the game was not on the minds of the players; they were more worried about their homes and families. Yahoo! Sports reports that Saints linebacker James Allen stood in the stadium tunnel moments before the game with cell phones in both hands trying desperately to get a hold of family in New Orleans. The Saints will be going to San Antonio to stay and wait to see when they can go home if they homes left to go to. It’s hard to imagine that these players are still asked to go to work even though they are unsure of the welfare of their family and of their city. But apparently, as I said earlier, the game must go on.
