UPDATE: due to the impending impact of Hurricane Ida, the Saints-Cardinals game has been canceled https://t.co/q5RTCdQCuV— New Orleans Saints (@Saints) August 27, 2021
The most important thing is people’s safety and this is clearly why this move was made. Unfortunately, this probability is all too familiar at this exact point of the preseason for the Saints, as the Gulf Coast has to endure Mother Nature’s relentlessness during hurricane season. Let’s hope this storm winds down and spares anyone in its path, especially the people and their homes. The cancellation of a preseason football game means little in perspective. Stay safe, everyone.
