Pre-Season ticket sales for the New Orleans Saints has truly given us locals heavenly inspiration and hopes that the New Orleans economy is well on its way back!

The Saints organization announced this week that the club has surpassed its' all-time season ticket sales record with almost 55,000 sold … four months prior to the start of the 2006 regular season!

One of the reasons for this optimism is the additions of Quarterback Drew Brees and their #1 draft choice from Southern Cal, Runningback Reggie Bush. The Saints will be led this year by new head coach, Sean Payton. Why is this so important to New Orleans this year?
