Sometimes It’s Not Just a Game

At times of such destruction and despair, people look to sports as a way to take their minds off of their troubles. Sunday the New Orleans Saints gave the people of New Orleans something to cheer about, something to feel good about by winning their season opener 23-20 against the Carolina Panthers. It seems like the team is taking the burden of uplifting this city on to their shoulders, this is no longer just a season. “In the back of our minds, we know we have to give them one tiny bit of hope,” said Saints quarterback Aaron Brook. This is a way to prove to America and to the world that New Orleans isn’t out yet.
