Lake area fans gear up for Saints game

By Crystal Price - bio | email

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The New Orleans Saints will kick off their first game of the season Thursday night and lake area fans are pumping up their "Who Dat" spirit.

Lake Charles Memorial Hospital hosted their first ever "Two Day" event from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to get their employees excited about the Saints' season opener.

"Two Dat" included game day food, a football toss, and Saints cups and T-shirts for those who hit the target with the football.

"It builds our team efforts and shows that we are a team just like the Saints and we want to win," said Matt Prejean, LCMH House Supervisor.

LCMH employee Sabrina Sonnier has been looking forward to this day ever since the Saints won the Super Bowl last season.

"It felt really good, I was kind of teary because I was excited for the Saints to finally win the Super Bowl," said Sonnier.

Sonnier said this new season she cannot wait to cheer her Saints on to victory once again.  

"I think from winning the Super Bowl, it gave them some inspiration, maybe they'll work a little harder and make sure they do well throughout the year," said Sonnier.

LCMH officials said Thursday's event is the start of many similar events as they plan to hold a "Two Dat" event for every Saints game.

    Sinkholes in the road are an issue all over Lake Charles and a pretty common sight in the Downtown area. Drivers usually have to dodge the cones, especially on Division Street. If you drive down the stretch of Division Street, in between Ryan and Bilbo, you're probably used to avoiding a sinkhole. The most recent one was fixed Tuesday, caused by a cracked drainage line under the street where water seeped out and created a void. “They just go in, cut out a section and pour as...
