As a part of the NFL and ESPN’s five-week series broadcasting Monday Night Football classics, one of the most important games in New Orleans Saints history will be re-visited on Monday, April 6th. Canal Street Chronicles and our colleagues over at the SB Nation mothership and The Falcoholic are joining forces to commemorate this event by setting the scene, reacting in real time, and recapping this iconic NFL evening as if it were happening live.

That means for the next three days, Canal Street Chronicles will give you all of the lead up information you need to enjoy the September 25, 2006 Monday Night Football game like it was unfolding moment-to-moment. Our coverage ahead of the big game will include all of your usuals:

  • Interview with the enemy
  • Players to watch
  • Where to watch
  • State of the roster for Week 3, 2006
  • Bold predictions
  • Key matchups

Monday night, both official Twitter accounts as well as numerous contributor accounts will be live-tweeting the game as it unfolds. There will also be an open thread here at CSC for fans to engage while taking in the action.

Then, after the conclusion of the game, come on back to check out the recaps, immediate reactions, and analysis that follow!

We are ecstatic about this collaboration with The Falcoholic to bring you some in-depth and real-time coverage at a time where we are all missing the sports world. To get to do it with a game as important as this, just makes it all the more exciting. Check back here throughout the next few days to get ready as the Saints host the Falcons on Monday Night Football.

We’re about to step into our 2006 time machine.

Back to a time when Donald Trump was just a reality TV host, Pluto was still a planet, and the New Orleans Saints and the Gulf Coast region were on the mend from Hurricane Katrina.

I’ve got a good feeling about this game...
