Saving Superdome

Superdome reopening remembered as historic, inspirational

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Drew Brees hopes the world watches what happens in and around the Superdome on Monday night.

As the Saints host the Atlanta Falcons, New Orleans will mark the 10-year anniversary of the reopening of the hulking, 73,000-seat stadium on Sept. 25, 2006, following its unprecedented 10-month restoration from extensive damage caused by Hurricane Katrina.

Brees figures coverage of the game will resonate with people he met this summer from flood-ravaged areas of West Virginia, when the Saints held training camp there — or with Louisiana residents whose communities around Baton Rouge were inundated last month.
