I'm really sick of hearing about this so called great story that's resulted from the Saints Super Bowl victory and what it means to New Orleans.
Sure, it brings a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment to a city that was, and still is, devastated by Hurricane Katrina. It can even be said that there's been a sense of hope restored in the community because the team finally picked up all the pieces from losing so much as a franchise and put it all together to accomplish their ultimate goal.
But really, what does all this mean for the city of New Orleans?
The win won't build the city back up, it won't bring more jobs to the city, it won't even bring the city a single cent! The only city profiting off this Super Bowl is Miami because the game was held there.
I hope no one really thinks because New Orleans won the Super Bowl that tourists will now come to the city. The only reason people will flood the city, no pun intended, is because of Mardi Gras. No more or no less of people will come to NOLA because the Saints won the Super Bowl.
So please, let's stop talking about how great of a story this is for the city of New Orleans after what happened with Katrina. There is nothing good that comes from the terrible story of what happened with Katrina.
They wouldn't need the restoration of hope if it weren't for the tragedy so how is that a good thing?
It's good the people of New Orleans can feel better for a week or so, but when that feeling runs out they'll look around and still be devastated.
