The extended victory lap for the New Orleans Saints isn’t over yet.
For the month of July, the organization has invited the rest of the Gulf South region to join the party. They are calling it “The Championship Tour” and they’ve even found a noble sponsor — the U.S. Marine Corp. and The National Guard. (Tour dates and locations can be found here.)
The traveling exhibition will include the Lombardi Trophy and many other items of memorabilia from the team’s victory over the Colts. It’s free to attend.
It’s also a smart move by the Saints to consolidate their considerable support throughout the South at a time when the team’s popularity is peaking. The bandwagon has plenty of room for more fans.
