It was more than a sports play. It symbolized a revival of spirit for a community devastated by one of the worst hurricanes in American history that caused loss of homes, lives, and hope. The Superdome was used for shelter during and after Katrina. On September 5th it was home for every fan of the Big Easy. After the home team’s defense forced a quick three-and-out against their most heated divisional rival, it was time to punt. But, this punt turned out to be one of the most historic plays of all time. The stadium erupted when a beloved special teamer flew in to block the punt, and a teammate scooped up the loose ball, running it in for the touchdown and an instant 7-0 lead. One of the football’s loudest venues has never been louder than it was at that moment, on that day.
