Come chat Saints with me // @WhoDatWarriors
NF: Where did you learn about football – When? and from Who?
CC: I learned football on my Pop’s knee. He was a semi-pro player, and our family went to football games all the time. It is woven into the very fibre of my being. We went to high school games on Friday, Tiger Stadium on Saturday and before the New Orleans Saints came into existence, we rooted for the Detroit Lions.
My Dad took us to the first Saints game in Tulane Stadium, and he has been a Saints ticket holder since day one. He would put two TVs side by side to watch two games at once and have the radio on as well. He is a wild man when it comes to football. On Thanksgiving he and my younger brother come over and we watch football all day together.
NF: Priorities of Life – What are your top 3?
CC: My top priorities would be the three F’s. Faith, Family and Football
NF: If you had any job in the world – what would it be, and why?
CC: I like my present job as an adjunct professor of accounting at four local universities and would have liked to have gotten a PHD in accounting. Otherwise, I would be happy to write more Saints articles and dabble in some painting/photography. My Mom was a great amateur painter, and I think it would be a happy profession.
NF: Has your association with NFLFemale been a positive influence in your world?
CC: A resounding YES! Love the articles and the chance to share my hobby with other women. It is unusual for a woman to be so interested in this sport, and it is hard to find people to talk to who have the same level of interest and knowledge.
NF: If you want to know the real side of sports legends, listen to their kids and grandkids. What do you hope others say about you?
CC: She was fierce about her Faith, Family, Friends and Football
