QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Wright Thompson


 "Yes, there is something happening in New Orleans, a strange and beautiful story not so much about a town that still needs distraction from a hurricane but about a professional sports team changing the nature of the relationship between franchise and fan. 'It's the entire city,' [Rita] LeBlanc says as we drive. 'Everybody feels it. It's not because we're selling it. Faith or fate, whatever you believe in, you cannot watch this football team and not have faith.'" — Wright Thompson at in a lengthy essay titled "New Orleans Saints Are the Soul of America's City," Dec. 19, 2009
