Season Six Episode 4

Cursed and Blessed According to local legend, the Louisiana Superdome was always a haunted place. First plagued by construction problems, then years of bad luck for the host Saints team — by 2005 those Saints were prepared to abandon the stadium in favor of a dreaded move to San Antonio. Then Hurricane Katrina hit, and somehow the dome became a symbol for a city’s rebirth. This is the story of New Orleans, through the story of its dome. Narrated by Tarriona “Tank” Ball of Tank and the Bangas.
