Saints to rally support for coast

by Nathan Stubbs

Already having shown wonders in lifting a city's spirits following the devastation of Katrina, the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints are heading to the coast to show solidarity with fishermen and coastal residents affected by the recent Gulf oil spill. The team will take a break from its regular training camp duties to travel to the coastal town of Buras tomorrow. Gov. Bobby Jindal sent out a press release yesterday announcing the event, billed as a "Saints rally to support coastal Louisiana."  Set to begin at 11 a.m. at the Fort Jackson Wildlife Center, the team, alongside Saints owners Tom Benson and Rita Benson Leblanc, coach Sean Payton, and the Lombardi Trophy, will meet with residents on the front line of the spill.
