The Soul of the Saints
Those who really dig a great ol’ fashion sports columnist love the writings of sportswriter Wright Thompson. He was originally a writer for the N'awlins paper, the Times-Picayune.
The upcoming Super Bowl isn't just any old Super Bowl. It's got soul, SO much soul, 'cause it's the soul of New Orleans we're talking about here. It's all about overcoming Katrina, and rebuilding. So when Thompson narrates a video chronicling the Big Easy’s resurgence and how the Super Bowl-bound Saints played a huge part in that comeback, you know this is special. This has to be an all-time great YouTube video. If it doesn't bring tears to your eyes, something is wrong with you, serious. This jazzy redemption tale leaves you no choice but to root for the Saints. So here you go - "The Soul of New Orleans."
