Look at that beautiful Superdome; the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The city of New Orleans has hosted an NFL record of 7 Super Bowls (actually 7 is the number of times the 'Dome has hosted a Superbowl, my Alma Mater hosted three more at Tulane Stadium, for a combined total of 10 Superbowls hosted in New Orleans!), and she's never looked better. This photo brings me back to an eclectic, diverse, strong and incredible city which holds a special place in my heart. Right now, she's hosting Superbowl number XLVII (that's 47 for anyone who can't read Roman Numerals!) and it's the Baltimore Ravens vs the San Francisco 49ers. This has been an interesting football season, and being a New Orleans Saints fan, this season has been particularly difficult to watch, but that doesn't mean I'm not enjoying the festivities!
However, this song takes hold even more right now, as I sit in a friend's house in Rhode Island (the Navy takes you all over, many places temporarily). New Orleans was where I went to college, learned to love football, learned about an incredibly deep and diverse music culture (actually they have a whole lot more than just music); it's where I learned to love seafood, where I turned 21, where i met one of my best friends, and where I met the most incredible woman in my life. New Orleans most definitely holds a special place in my life, and I'm proud of her as she hosts this year's Superbowl! I have a few more photos I'd like to show, as I've seen many similar ones on Facebook and I'd like you to enjoy them and if you've never visited New Orleans you need to stop by! Feel free to contact me if you would like any recommendations of places in New Orleans for your visit!
