The New Orleans Saints

The NFL's New Orleans Saints left town last Sunday.
With Hurricane Katrina hitting the Gulf Coast, the club's entire football operations staff went to San Jose, Calif. on Sunday in preparation for the Saints' final preseason contest at Oakland on Thursday night.
Overall my mind has been numbed by the enormity of the losses from Katrina. I know football seems pretty unimportant in the grand scheme of things, and I have no idea why or how this occurred to me. The Saints' next home game isn't until September 18th, against the New York Giants. I can imagine that work crews could get the Superdome in good enough shape to play the game there. And yet, given some reports, I wonder whether people will even be allowed back into the city by then.

What do you figure are the odds the Saints will play that game in the Superdome?
