ESPN aired the New Orleans Saints’ 23-3 win over the Atlanta Falcons from back in 2006 as part of its “Monday Night Football” series.

The game itself was something else. It represented the Saints’ first game back inside the Superdome since Hurricane Katrina the previous August. A rebirth of sorts for the Bayou under the recently-signed Drew Brees and young head coach Sean Payton.

Stuck in the house during the COVID-19 quarantine, Payton himself live-tweeted the broadcast. It was everything we could ask for and more.

First, Payton talked about the electric atmosphhere inside the dome.

The old football coach then gave us the inactives for the game. There were some surprises.

Now, on to the game itself. Payton had fun communicating with fans, former players and some in the media.

He also live-tweeted the need to use the restroom. This is peak quarantine stuff right here.

Just tremendous stuff from the Super Bowl-winning head coach. He found a way to entertain the masses on an otherwise sleepy Monday night.
