If you're in the 20-28 age range, the Superdome in NOLA is probably a symbol to you for something very different than football victories and defeats. It was strange being in there post-Katrina. I'd been there before Katrina and thought it looked like a fun spaceship, but now it just represents natural destruction and human fallibility.
It's tempting, of course, to look at it with a negative slant after losing a big football game inside the dome. The rest of New Orleans, however, is looking great to me. Neighborhoods that were obviously devastated are coming back, and Bourbon street sure hasn't lost its "charm." I have a soft spot for cities on the water, and NOLA is one of them. I'm definitely in its corner, and I hope it continues to rebuild, both physically and otherwise.
