Tonight is the official start of the 2010 NFL season and the league is not holding anything back.  The season starts at almost the same spot it left off last season as we return to the Big Easy where the New Orleans Saints will square off against the Minnesota Vikings in a rematch of last year’s NFC championship game.

Taylor Swift will kick the festivities off with a live performance and the Superdome is sure to not stop rocking from the opening chords of her first song to the last hike of the final play. New Orleans has always been a party town, but recent events have turned it into America’s hard luck case. The city can’t catch a break. As the rebuilding from hurricane Katrina continues, the BP oil spill brought new problems. Two of New Orleans’ major sources of income are tourism and seafood. Much of the nation’s shrimp comes from Louisiana. All of this got shut down during the BP oil spill. With all the hardship in the region the residents had one thing to take their minds off their troubles – the Saints.

Last season the team beat the Minnesota Vikings and went on to beat the Colts in the Super Bowl. During the game with the Vikings they attacked Brett Favre and put him on the ground every chance they got. More than once he had to be helped to the sidelines by his teammates, but Brett Favre is a warrior and like the gunslinger he is, he didn’t go down without a fight.

The talk began a few weeks ago as the Vikings coaching staff took exception to what they thought were late hits on Favre in last year’s game. The New Orleans Saints have responded that there is more of that in store for him tonight. Favre himself wasn’t even sure if his surgically repaired ankle would allow him to return to the team this year. Now the talk ends. The speculation ends. Favre is with the Vikings and when Taylor Swift finishes singing, these two teams that have quickly become rivals will collide. The winner of tonight’s Vikings Vs Saints NFL season opener, may well be considered the NFC Super Bowl favorite.
