As if it needs reminding...We're staring at the face of arguably the worst natural disaster in Our Nation's history.
Sports and RV shows are probably going to have to make concessions. As well as it's fans.
The Astrodome currently has 25,000 refugees; the Alamodome has 23,000 and Dallas' Reunion arena has 25,000 with more people on the way. Those places were out. I heard the Saints opted to play their home games at Tiger Stadium to be closer to their fans. ESPN.com says they will be headquartered in San Antonio.
The bigger picture here is we lost a great city which will take months to rebuild. Tom Benson agreed to this decision and they said the Saints and Giants agreed to donate a part of the gate receipts to the Hurricane Relief fund.
God Bless the city of New Orleans and it's people.
