Getting ready for the game
City workers began painting the field over the weekend. They are expected to finish the job early this week.
There will be no doubt on the field that Monday night game will be a Saints home game. City workers painted the Saints' logo at midfield with the words, "Shreveport, La.'' underneath the logo.
In the stands, this may be a 50-50 split of fans with the close proximity of Dallas and East Texas to Shreveport.
At the very least, the stadium should have a professional atmosphere for the NFL preseason game on Aug. 21.
