The Saints Go Marching In

Tomorrow, after over a year, the Superdome will open for business again. The New Orleans Saints will host the Atlanta Falcons for Monday night football marking the first time since Hurricane Katrina that people have used the Superdome. The game is sold out and has drawn celebs and politicians alike to help christen the new 185 million dollar Dome.

U2 (Yay!)and Greenday will debut a new song (well, actually a remake of an old song) called "The Saints are Coming" during the pregame show to be televised prior to the game on ESPN at 7pm est.

At first ,I thought this would be a great opportunity for Anderson to be in NOLA but it appears that he will be presenting at the The News Emmy awards on Monday night in NYC . Here's hoping he takes home at least one. On that note, we are sad to inform you he lost the Relly award (Regis and Kelly award). I'm sure he's been unable to sleep since his humiliating defeat to Mark Consuelos but I'm sure he'll be recovered by tomorrow.
And just because there were no pictures of Anderson in the post yet, here ya go....
(Have a great week!)

Isn't Mark Consuelos Kelly Ripa's husband? He shouldn't even have been in the running. Talk about nepotism. I'm sure Anderson doesn't feel bad because it was RIGGED! But, if he does feel bad, an Emmy should help him recover.

So...no Anderson for "360" tonight. huh? Are these Emmy's broadcast anywhere?

I wonder if Anderson had trouble deciding between NOLA and the Emmys? Reopening the Super Dome is a very significant part of the rebuilding of NOLA but the possibility of winning an Emmy isn't shabby either. Really interesting post PT, thanks for the information.

Ha, ha, I just had a mental image of Anderson as a football fanatic! Can't you picture him with the face painted, and the whole get-up like the Raider's fans!!

Purple Tie said...

If he does present at the Emmy's I don't think that necessarly means he won't be on 360 tonight. But who knows with him... he could end up in Timbuktu tonight for all we know :P

Does any body know where the pic of AC and his dog is from? Is it the old 360?

sfacfan said...

It's just too bad that the people sitting in the seats tonight, will not be the same ones who had to seek refuge in the Dome during Katrina. Would have been nice to see some tix donated to those people.

Sheryn said...

sfacfan, what a wonderful idea that is. That would have been very nice to see indeed.

Good Luck Anderson!

Great post Ms. Tie!

I'm just wondering if Anderson would be all that excitd that the Super Dome is open for football again. If you think of all the money it took to get it back into shape, think of how many families that money could have helped to rebuild their homes and lives.

phebe said...

That's a good point Andysgirl but the Super Dome is an investment that continues to feed the economy of the area. Everytime an event is held there the entire area benefits.

Anon,
Anderson brought his dog,Molly, on the show about a year an 1/2 ago to do a segment with the Pet Psychic. It's on CNN Pipeline if you're a subscriber.

Anyone know whether or not these Emmys will be broadcast?

btw, Phebe's avatar here is one of my all time faves - a classic!

As a native New Orleanean, I can't begin to express what it means to have the Saints back in the Superdome. This city depends on tourism and the Superdome and the Saints are a big part of that industry. As a Katrina survivor, tonight I say "GO SAINTS."
