audio Field of Dreams: Lakeview Residents Rally Around the Saints


For the intrepid few who are now already living in Lakeview, the Saints NFC championship game against the Chicago Bears was an occasion which inspired a celebration. In FEMA trailers, gutted homes, church halls, and outdoor tent parties, Lakeview neighbors were reunited to cheer their home team to victory, as well as to cheer for their own personal and collective victories.

Brian, I loved your interview with Lakeview residents. It didn't make us look like fools. I think your commentary at the end of it is beautifully touching.
