First- too young at the time (early 90s)

Best- Super Bowl

Worst- any 1996 home game when Venturi was the interim coach after Mora had resigned. I think the average attendance in the Dome during that time was somewhere below 40,000 and we lost every single game.

re: First, Best and Worst Saints games you've attended
First: a preseason game against the Lions shortly after done opened. Can barely recall it.

Worst: a Fourcade start vs 49rs on a Monday night.

Best: that's a tough one but I'd say that Sunday night blow out of the Colts because my dad was with me probably got the last time at a saints game as we both no longer live in nola

First: Not sure. Early 90's when tickets (good tickets) were easy to get.

Best: Probably MNF against the Packers where we scores 1,000 points.

Worst: Tiger Stadium against Carolina. Was so sad to watch that team play like that. They didn't care and Steve Smith is a douche! There was a random Redskins game around 2002/3 where Stephen Davis rushed for 500 yards or so on us. That was a pretty terrible game too.

First: Flame away but I honestly don't even remember

Best: 09 NFCCG/06 Falcons

Worst: 2002 Panthers. Not just b/c it eliminated us from going to the playoffs (after a 6-1 start) but it may be the worst football game I've ever seen. 10-6 and it was just....awful. Boring. No energy from the team or the crowd. I remember just wanting to go home b/c the game sucked so bad. And the Panthers sucked that year

Wow. First Saints game was in the Alamo Dome in San Antonio vs the Houston Oilers.

Best: Probably the Saints vs Cowboys in 98. 22-3.

Worst: Saints vs Dolphins in Tiger Stadium. It was beyond depressing.

First: Saints vs Rams 2001 Wildcard Game. I went with my Dad. We decided to get season tickets after this game.

Best: Difficult. Probably the game above, but there are a few that come close.

Worst: I can't remember what year it was, but it was a game against the Broncos where we got blown out the whole game (haslett years). My Dad and I had a thing about staying for the whole game, and there must have been just a couple thousand (if that) people left in the stadium by the time that game ended. It was pretty painful.

First- vs the Dolphins with my dad in the mid 80's

Best- vs the Falcons on MNF when Brees broke Marino's record

Worst- 2003 vs Colts. Manning throws 6 td's against us. Brooks with 2 picks and 0 tds. Depressing game that sticks with me.

First - Christmas Eve 2000, Saints vs. Rams. Game was on my birthday, so my Dad got me tickets. We lost 26-21, but we got them back in the 1st round

Best - 9/25/06. Best night of my life.

Worst - Getting blown out by the 8-8 Redskins in 2001 40-10. Willie Jackson had our only TD... Got to meet the Hogetts though.

First: Cowboys, December 6th, 1998 (day my sister was born)

Best: Probably the Falcons game this year, just because I had incredible seats. Or the Lions playoff game a couple of years ago.

Worst: Ravens game the 2006 season. I was really hungover, and we got our asses handed to us.

There were actually people at that game. The one against Carolina seriously probably only had a few hundred people there. I walked down to the very bottom and sat about five or six rows up for that game.

re: First, Best and Worst Saints games you've attended
1st- a home game when we blew out the packers a few years back when Favre still was playing for them

best- NFCCG! sat behind THE Field Goal. This is also the best memory in my life so far, for I WAS IN THAT NUMBER WHEN THE SAINTS WENT MARCHING IN.

Close second would be this year vs atlanta tho seeing gleason and payton start that chant was a memory that will last forever


worst- a few years ago when we lost to the browns. to top off the "badness," i was about to get brees autograph that game and as soon as he got to my jersey to sign, he put his sharpie up and went in the locker room

First- 1995 when the Panthers first played the Saints. (Not sure if 1995 or not, but it was the first time Carolina played us in the dome)

Worst- 2010 against Atlanta when Hartley missed the winning 29 yard field goal in overtime.

Best- either this past Sunday night game against the Cowboys or last year when we shut out the Bucs.

First: 2003 against Tampa Bay in a loss 17-14

Best: 2006 Monday Night Game first game back from Katrina against Atlanta.

Worst: First is the only game I went to that they lost so I guess that one is it... I have been to about 8 or 9 in my lifetime.

re: First, Best and Worst Saints games you've attended
First: Don't remember

Best: Tie between

Superbowl XLIV in Miami, FL when we beat the Colts 31-17 and I cried in the stands like a little girl. Monday, we shut down the interstate toll booths on the way home cause hundreds of La cars were blaring halftime and literally dancing in the middle of the road. Greatest weekend of my life.

2009 NFC Divisional Playoffs when we destroyed the Cardinals 45-14, although I don't remember much of the second half cause I was absolutely trashed.

Worst: 2009 vs. Cowboys

re: First, Best and Worst Saints games you've attended
First: 1967 Philadelphia Eagles. I was 5.

Best: Tie 1A - 1970 Detroit Lions Tom Dempsey from 63 yards. I was 8 and watched it from the aisle so I could see. I didn't know it was good until I saw the refs call. I could hear the kick all the way up into section UD. It was kicked from 62 and a quarter yards out. Didn't realize it was 63 until listening to the radio on the way home.

1B Archie's first game in 1971. On 4th down, last play of the game he ran it in from 1 yard out.


Worst. Opening day 1973. Falcons 62 Saints 7. The only game my dad left early.



He had tickets from 1967 until 1976. I haven't attended many games since.


ETA: Yes, I'm old. Also, I would much rather watch from my house on HD with a few friends, some brew and food.
