    Where will Saints play?

    As of today (with NFL approval) it looks like Saints will play 3 home games in Baton Rouge and 4 at Alamodome. Events scheduled for the Alamodome, including a homeshow with 500 exhibitors, have agreed to change their dates.

    Red McCombs is hopping into the middle of things, Cisneros (former mayor and HUD secty-Clinton) contacted NFL and said San Antonio has changed a lot since 1999 when they refused to let san antonio have a franchise. Tom Benson not saying anything.

    Great games for Lions AND Saints!

    Wow. Well, Tagliabu is supposed to go to Baton Rouge tomorrow and check out the stadium (of course, it still has evacuees) to see if Saints can play games there. Don't know if he will come to San Antonio. Anyway, if Saints play 3 games at Baton Rouge and 4 games here, they will be playing Lions on December 24th here. And Spurs will be playing Pistons December 25th in Detroit. We are starting to bond with you all:) .

    The alamodome is giving Saints a good deal. They get to keep all money from tickets, concessions, goods sold, all of it, for games played here. Alamodome is going to charge operational costs only. :usa:

    Hate it that Cowboys won. This is Not Cowboy country. They had training camp here year before last, and Jerry Jones told the mayor they would come back if San Antonio paid them $1 million. Mayor said nah, we only made $442.00 on you when you were here before. One good thing though, the training camp facilities that had been prepared and used by the Cowboys worked out so that the Saints could use it.

    Yep, Lions will be here December 24th

    It's now pretty much set that 4 games will be played in Baton Rouge and 3 games here. Lions will be here 12/24/05, pretty sure, even though NFL said could be 24-26, because Alamo Bowl is scheduled for 12/28/05. :wave:
    San Antonio is a great place to be at Christmas. The Riverwalk and Alamo Plaza are completely covered in lights. Lions will be treated very well, besides there are a lot of Lions fans here.

    Tiger Stadium

    The Saints will be playing 4 home games at Tiger Stadium this year.

    Except not Tiger Stadium in Detriot. Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, La.

    I'm guessing that they were talking about Baton Rouge all along and not Detroit when the rumours first started about Tiger Stadium.

    I've been to San Antonio only once, and it was in February, but the Riverwalk was very nice even then. I'd imagine that it would look even better with all the lights.

    It was the same trip that my wife and I first got together. We went to New Orleans for mardi gras 7 years ago. Its still hard to believe that the city that first brought us together is now under water.

    Saints tickets sold out

    Alamodome games for saints: tickets went on sale at 10 this a.m., sold out by noon (fans waiting since 3AM). Well, not all tickets sold, best seats being held for Saints season ticket holders, they have 10 days to keep or release. We will never be the professional sports town that Detroit is but, man do we have the fans.

    I am very confused by this new forum. Its sn't the format. It is me. So I'm not sure how I just came upon this but it is kind of eerie to me.

    I guess I am getting sentimental these days.

    I just want to say that I miss Zoso and Barbara from San Antone.

    God Bless you, wherever you may be. :amen:

    Wait a minute, Zoso wasn't that old.
    Wait a minute, we never knew Zoso's age.
    But he/she was a moderater for a while.

    A couple of our friends have passed and not all were "old". Rascoe would know, if he chooses to pipe in on some. I hope I was wrong on this one.
