It was over a year ago that we first saw those disturbing New Orleans' images caused by Hurricane Katrina and, especially those of the Louisiana Superdome. The newly-renovated and galvanized dome is bringing world-wide media attention once again. And media ranging from Sky Sports to Al-Jazeera is slated to cover the New Orleans Saints' official reopening of the Superdome Sept. 25 in their regular season home opener against the Atlanta Falcons. Tulane's football team will follow suit Sept. 30, with its home opener against SMU.
"I haven't seen this much excitement over an event in a long time," Tulane women's basketball coach Lisa Stockton said. "With (the Saints) being 2-0, you'd think that they were already in the Super Bowl. There's so much excitement over it. That's a big thing for our city. Because the Superdome is really the center-point of our downtown and for that to reopen, it's going to be such a positive thing for the city."
