Are you ready for some football?

A few months ago I wrote that San Antonio should stop dreaming about having a NFL-Franchise move here any time soon. But "thanks" to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina the New Orleans Saints are unable to play their home games in the Superdome. So they will play three games here and the other four in Baton Rogue. This was my chance to see some live NFL action in town so I went ahead and bought a ticket for the game against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday - my first NFL game ever!!

I've been to the Alamodome a couple of times to see the Spurs play, but I always wondered what this huge place would be like with a sellout crowd in it. Now I will have the opportunity to experience it. I never thought I would be able to see a NFL game in San Antonio, but now the time has come. The other two games are going to be against Atlanta and Detroit.

I have no problem cheering for New Orleans, since it is one of my favourite cities in the U.S. I remember having a damn good time in the French Quarter, it's probably the best place in America to have a party!
