A great sign of optimism from the New Orleans Mayor, as the #WhoDatNation anxiously awaits their first opportunity to once again pack out the Superdome to support their Saints.

This message comes after NFL Commissioner Rodger Goodell recently expressed his belief that NFL stadiums around the country would be filled with fans for the upcoming season.

With New Orleans continuing to progress through the coronavirus pandemic, all New Orleans Saints fans want is a seat in the Superdome this season. While Mayor Cantrell has had some pretty strict guidelines for her city re-opening, the optimism behind the progress Louisiana has made is clear in what NOLA's Mayor had to say at this press conference.
