The Metairie of the Superdome

Posted by schroeder915 on July 31, 2006

Mr. Clio’s comment in an earlier PGR post about the Saints was so funny I had to promote it. In that post, I talked about how the Saints surprisingly sold out all of their season tickets, but uncertainty remained about whether the luxury suites would sell out.

Mr. Clio:

Trust me: it won’t be the Terrace that’s empty.

It’ll be the “Club” section or, as Dillyberto likes to call it, “the Metairie of the Superdome.” You know, come late, leave early, boo at the earliest opportunity. Then complain about the traffic as you leave late in the third quarter. Then lie to everybody and tell them you were there to see the Saints’ comeback. That “Club” section.

Trust me: the Terrace will be rocking. And Bush will be signed within six days.

Great prediction! Reggie agreed “in principle” to a contract yesterday.

Thanks Mr. Clio and Dillyberto!

This reminds me of a funny remark I heard someone else make about how people from Metairie shouldn’t be allowed to open cheesy restaurants on Magazine Street (meaning, of course, no offense to Metairie people who “get it” — it’s a mindset more than a product of geography).

    Thanks for the shout-out.

    BTW, also thanks for clarifying the Metairie mindset vs. Metairie geography point.

    The Terrace is where the soul of the city comes together to thrive for just eight days this year.

    That is until the playoffs.

    See you there?
