Message to Coldpizza: Pat Y will check on the Saints' delay of honoring Sam Mills

9

Coldpizza brought up recently that the Saints have yet to make up for the Sam Mills banner-hanging ceremony that was canceled due to Katrina in 2005. They still haven't rescheduled, so I asked Pat Y about it in his "Chat with Pat" today and he agrees that it's long overdue and promises to check into it. See the interaction below: David (Albuquerque) Hi Pat. Speaking of the late, great Sam Mills, I noticed recently that the Saints planned to honor him in the Superdome during the 2005 season but had to cancel due to Katrina. Why have they not yet taken steps to finally do that? Carolina has already honored him, so New Orleans needs to do the same. It seems like they've forgotten. Any info on this? Pat Yasinskas Very good point. Actually, I think Sam's already in Saints Hall of Fame. It's the Louisiana Hall of Fame he's not in yet. They were supposed to put a banner up in the dome, but the hurricane got in the way. I'll check into it and write something on it to perhaps remind some folks about it.
