Of course, the most memorable Monday Night Football game came a little over 10 years ago in 2006. Ultimately, this win marked the true REBIRTH after Hurricane Katrina. In any case, this moment means more now than ever. For the first time, I actually saw the movie “GLEASON” this past week. The story that followed the biggest play in Saints history is still the story.
Consequently, nothing more can be said to add to this culmination of fate, determination, and courage. The game on Monday Night Football actually was not the big moment here. The fact that the Saints were even playing in the Superdome represented the resiliency and obstacles that the city of New Orleans overcame. People were killed. Countless fans were forced to move. Presumably, there was no hype needed for this one.
The Saints beat the Falcons that night 23-3. There’s simply no way that any words can express the feelings on that night. In addition, the block from Steve Gleason was just the start of a journey for him. So many people were touched by that moment. Additionally, the city of New Orleans received the GAME BALL from coach Sean Payton. The story was a test of fortitude and plenty of tears. Above all, the game was bigger than LIFE itself. For many, this was the day that people’s lives were changed forever.
