BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - With a stroke of a pen, Biloxi Mayor A.J. Holloway proclaimed Monday, November 30th, New Orleans Saints Day in Biloxi.

"I thought it was only fitting and right to have a proclamation to help the team through its big Monday night game," Mayor Holloway said.

Monday night the undefeated Saints clash with the New England Patriots. The Patriots are the last team to go through the regular season without a loss.

Mayor Holloway encouraged city employees and businesses in Biloxi to wear the Saints' colors, black and gold, to support the team.

Dr. Billy Wansley's Biloxi office is like a shrine to the Saints.

"I've been to every game going back to the first one in 1967," Dr. Wansley said.

Over at Charles T. Harrison Realty in Biloxi, employees are taking the mayor's proclamation seriously. Donna Harrison, wearing a Saints jersey, has high hopes.

"We're going to cream them. I'm so excited," Harrison said.
