Nothing that happened in the Super Bowl year will ever top Gleason's block. At least in my opinion. I was there, nothing has ever sounded even close to the outburst of noise that occurred as Gleason ran towards that kick and blocked it. Just special.
I want Gleason's name hanging from the rafters before its too late for him to see it.

I expect the same noise level for the 1st game vs the Falcons. Someone is getting punched in the mouth week one.

As much as I would like to hear it happen, I don't think you can recreate that moment. It was years and lots of suffering in the making.

This.

But I wasn't at NFCCG or SB, but I highly doubt it was more electric than that moment.

If I never go to another Saints game the rest of my life, I think I could live with it after that night.

I've been to tons if sporting events across our fine country

This and the first mets game after 9/11 are by far the two most emotional events I've been around

Truly something that just doesn't happen

Steve Gleason referred to that moment as the world's biggest beer-spill.

He wasn't lying either. I put about 10 ounces on a few people in that moment.
