Painful loss will become Saints’ Laettner moment
The New Orleans Saints are stepping up a notch tomorrow against the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC playoff as they take on the 2nd seed team at the Vikes home field. Last week, the Saints played the Carolina Panthers who they had beaten twice during the season and they were playing at home in the Superdome. They were also healthier.
If vengeance is a dish best served cold, the Saints’ next playoff game will be played in the right spot. The Accuweather forecast for Minneapolis and vicinity is for eight inches of snow late in the week followed by a high of zero and low of minus-14 on game day. If you’re thinking of attending, “put on two of everything,” as Jim Finks, the only man who ever headed up both franchises, would have advised.
