Arizona Cardinals 14 @ New Orleans Saints 45: Pictures from Section 140

New, comments

I'll have the rest of my post-game analysis via the written word up for all of you tomorrow morning. In the meantime, here are the pictures I took during the game yesterday. I took more than usual and I think they're also better quality than usual, so I hope you enjoy.

"I've said this many times before -- and probably will again -- but there is no better walk to a game than the 10 blocks down Poydras to the Superdome in New Orleans."David Fleming

You might be wondering why I took a picture of a line outside the Superdome. This is to applaud the fine people in charge of crowd control at the Dome. What they've done here is re-routed the line to get into the stadium so that it runs along the side of the building as opposed to the original format which had fans lining up straight outward from the doors. With this new format there is no bottlenecking on the concourse, allowing foot traffic to move better and making it easier to walk around to the appropriate gate. Good job guys. Can't believe it took you this long to figure it out but good job nonetheless.

The secondary has some alone time before the game.

These weekly pictures could be the very reason the Saints are doing so well.

Tom Benson's new building in the shadow of the Superdome. First time I'd ever seen his name on it. Tacky bro. Moments later my mother-in-law gave me one of the commemorative coins that the organization is giving to season ticket holders to celebrate 25 years of Tom Benson ownership. One side of the medallion has a full-color picture of Benson. Also tacky.
