Nov 1 - Biggest Day in Saints History

 

Today, November 1, is the 43rd anniversary of the NFL awarding an NFL franchise to New Orleans. For my money, until the Saints win a Super Bowl, this date will remain the most important date in Saints history.

It is because of the franchise being awarded on November 1, 1966 -- All Saints Day -- that a few short months later, early Jan 1967, the team officially became known as the Saints. 

As is always the case with history, it is because of the earliest days of the franchise that the seeds of passion, love, pain, glory, life-long memories, celebration, defeat, anxiety and so much more unrelenting emotions prevail to this day.

November 1, 1966 -- what a Great Day for all Saints fans, young and old (all over the world) and those no longer with us that started it all!!
