METAIRIE, La. -– I just arrived at the New Orleans Saints' practice facility and it looks like a large part of Who Dat Nation is here.
Saturday morning’s practice is open to the public and it looks like the bleachers are pretty close to full even before the Saints take the field. Practice doesn’t start for about another 20 minutes and there is a line of fans waiting to get in at the gate.
I’ll be heading out to the field in just a few minutes. I’ll give you updates after practice and interviews. We’ll see if tight end Jeremy Shockey, who wasn’t available to the media Friday, talks today.
