I had the privilege of being at the first game the New Orleans Saints ever won. It was a pre-season game, so didn’t count officially, but it counted with those who were there!
The St. Louis Cardinals came to Shreveport to play the Saints on August 12, 1967.
It was held at Fair Grounds Stadium, now Independence Stadium, home of the Independence Bowl. It was a good bit smaller 42 years ago.
I was 20 years old at the time and got together with a group of friends to go see this new Louisiana team.
It was a great time and a pretty good party too, before, during and after!
Any of you other oldies out there attend this one?
