Anyone can show up on a Sunday morning two hours or so before the game and tailgate. It takes a true Saints fan to show up 24 hours before the game -- Monday mornings be damned -- just to get that perfect spot.
Eyewitness News went to meet with that kind of Saints fan before the Monday night game against the New England Patriots. We showed up around noon, when traffic was freely flowing and you could still park under the Claiborne Bridge.
Almost each person we talked to said they had been out there since early that morning.
