The Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement program is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. ET.
Each Saints player is wearing a black T-shirt with Willie Roaf's No. 77 on the back, a show of support for one of the greatest players in Saints history.
Saints players are seated in direct sunlight on a hot, muggy evening. They've got at least three coolers filled with drinks. Some are using programs to shield their faces from the sun. The Cardinals are presumably relaxing in an air-conditioned hotel.
Neither team's starters will play extensively, this being the exhibition opener for both.
