Saints: New Orleans, the day after

5 years ago January 25, 2010 Jan 25, 2010 Monday, January 25 2010 Monday, January 25, 2010 1:44:28 PM EST in News

It was evident in the sounds of busy cash registers and in the smiles of construction workers in a
neighborhood where Hurricane Katrina's scars linger: the Saints' journey to the Super Bowl has added bounce to this city's long hard recovery and a new reason to party going into the raucous Mardi Gras season.
      It was even reflected in the political discourse.
      At a forum of candidates for mayor on Monday afternoon, one candidate promised to hire "the Drew Brees of police chiefs" if he wins the election.
      The Saints' 31-28 Sunday night victory over Minnesota also could mean an economic lift: Louisiana Economic Development Secretary Stephen Moret says the ensuing trip to the Super Bowl
puts a positive national spotlight on the state.
