    She is 72 Years Old...Wow...Still very tappable. If most women kept themselves up like that in their 70’s Viagra wouldn’t need to be a thing for their husbands.

    I was once at a function in which Mr. Benson was honored and I thanked him for his gift to our institution. "Thank you, Mr. Benson," I said. Gayle was on his arm and she glared at me. "And thank you, too, Mrs. Benson."

      Considering that only a few years before his death they tried to have him ruled mentally incompetent and take everything, which ended up with them netting some $500m, I can perfectly understand him not leaving them anything else.

    She is a wonderful woman. I have been a Saint's fan since childhood, since the day they were created. Tom was the best owner they ever had and now Gayle is continuing his legacy. I remember being fortunate enough to shake Tom's hand during the Superbowl year, at the Patriots game. It was my first Saint's game ever and it was totally amazing. Nothing compares to the thrill of walking up Poydras street to the Superdome. Both Tom & Gayle were/are such gracious and real people. GEAUX SAINTS!!! Lets put that Lombardi trophy in her hand for Tom, for her and the future of our beloved team!

      You Saint fans forgot all about those Rams...and well...WE WON!! Oh sure you cry about that one play which I'll counter and state: what about the Steelers who were robbed when they were killing the Saints? They got called for bogus penalties and the Saints limped off the field and was "rewarded" home field advantage for the playoffs...

      +Glo gang Tom Benson is from New Orleans and bought the saints when they went up for sale in 85'. But when the franchise kept losing year after year and ticket sales were down on top of a major natural disaster that crippled the city's infrastructure he did what all successful businessmen do and that's to find a way to keep the business profitable and since he had other businesses in San Antonio he thought about relocating the team there but never intended to sell it.
