As seen above, the 90 year old owner of both the Saints and New Orleans Pelicans in the NBA (set to turn 91 later this year) is currently in ICU at a local hospital.
While flu-like symptoms might just be a prolonged inconvenience for most Saints’ fans, to someone of Mr. Benson’s age, it could pose dire complications.
Nothing further is known at this time, but stay tuned for updates.
