Saints fans across the city are gearing up for the NFC Championship Game this Sunday. Last year, the Saints family lost longtime team owner Tom Benson. He served as owner starting in 1985, through the difficult aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and during the team’s Super Bowl victory in 2010. In this edition of NOLA Life Stories, we’ll hear an interview with Tom Benson from the archives, when he shared memories of the pivotal year in Saints football that would come to be known as the Katrina Season.

For players and coaches, a football game starts long before kickoff. The same holds true for the food-minded Saints fan. For such fans, it starts with choosing what to cook and devoting the hands-on work to ensure a victorious feast.

It's really no wonder. Take the enthusiasm of the Who Dat Nation, add south Louisiana's endemic passion for food and the results are predictably over the top.

The Saints take to the Dome for a big game on Monday night. But not all the action is generated by the players on the field. Fans are pumping up to express the indefinable spirit that is Saints culture -- everything from dance moves by the 610 Stompers to chants of "Who Dat!" NolaVie's Renee Peck talks to the Saints' Director of Game Day Entertainment, Jared Sampson, to find out about the elaborate planning that goes into entertainment at the Superdome.

Writer Scott Gold has been worried lately. Every autumn he sees his loved ones overtaken by something beyond his control.
