It was in doubt until that pick-six -- but from the time Tracy Porter hit the 30-yard line with nothing but green in front of him, the celebration was just a matter of time.

The New Orleans Saints, who went decades before their first winning season, who play in a stadium that housed horror during Katrina, who had a country rooting for them, pulled off the upset Sunday night and beat the Indianapolis Colts, setting off a huge party in the French Quarter and priming the pump for a huge Mardi Gras celebration this week.

Check back later this morning for our slide show from various Saints watch parties in Houston. We're guessing they will involve beads, Drew Brees jerseys and drinks.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
