Saints owner Tom Benson was taken from The Ritz-Carlton hotel in Atlanta to a hospital after he fell and hit his head after Minneapolis won the bid as the host city for Super Bowl LII.
According to Saints spokesman Greg Bensel, Benson tripped off the podium and hit his head.
Jim Finks has been given his just due for escorting the New Orleans Saints franchise from the outhouse to the NFL penthouse.
Today's theme, at least in New Orleans, is out with the old and in with the new. The Hornets lost to the Dallas Mavericks Wednesday night to end a dismal 27-55 season, but on Thursday morning the New Orleans Pelicans are undefeated and looking skyward. At midnight, the Hornets turned into a pumpkin likely to be returned to Charlotte, and Tom Benson's new Pelicans franchise officially opened for business.
