NEW ORLEANS -- Tailgating crowds all but drowned out the pregame wedding vows. But newlywed Gloria Darlene Paige looked resplendent in a white pantsuit, sporting a black-and-gold beaded headpiece in the Saints' colors.
"I want us to two-dat," Vanderpool said, New Orleans-speak for a championship repeat.
Paige suggested a September wedding, and Vanderpool, a lifelong Saints fan, chose the date. He sees many in the crowd only during football season but said, "They're family."
