Last weekend my husband & I went to the 2013 Season Opener for the New Orleans Voodoo. The Voodoo is a local AFL Football team that quenches our need for football when the New Orleans Saints are off-season. Although the N.O voodoo has been around for a few years, this is actually our first time at a Voodoo Game. As I expected we had tons of fun. The New Orleans VooDoo (1-0) opened “the Graveyard” (New Orleans Arena) for a 51-45 overtime victory against its South Division rivals the Orlando Predators (0-1). The crowd was so exited & nervous as every touchdown was made.
One of my favorite things about the Voodoo game was how entertaining it was. Aside from the excitement of football, there was plenty of sideline entertainment to keep fans interested in when the teams were in between plays, finishing a quarter or during halftime. From hamster ball races to fan challenges guest were able to win prizes like free t shirts, iTunes cards or season tickets! Can you believe I didn’t win a THING!?!?
Our favorite part was the actual football. We love the New Orleans Saints, but taking the entire family is out of our budget. You can always take the family for a fraction of the cost to a AFL New Orleans Voodoo Game and not break the bank. It will definitely satisfy your ‘football fix” and provide great entertainment for the entire family.
Guess who I saw at the Voodoo Game After Game Fan Experience? My friend Michelle & JuJu, the Good Voodoo. You can find her on Facebook, on Twitter or on her website. If you happen to be at the next New Orleans Voodoo game you might see her at the pre-show fan-fest in front of The New Orleans Arena.
I had to take a picture with Mojo one of the New Orleans Voodoo Mascot. Isn’t her such a cutie? He loves to give hugs & greet the fans at the game. I wish I could have brought the kids because my son would just love Mojo. We plan on my husband bringing my 8 year old son to see the next game as the New Orleans Voodoo take on the Iowa Barnstormers on March 30th at 6p.m. but if your not local or can’t make the game, you can catch The New Orleans Voodoo’s next home game on CBS Sports Network at 6p.m central.

Look how big my husband is standing next to a AFL New Orleans Voodoo Player? My husband asked a player when the next try-outs are! He was kidding…I think?!?!
