The New Orleans Saints’ Michael Mauti blocked a punt in the first quarter of the game against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday and returned it for a touchdown. New Orleans fans might remember Steve Gleason doing the exact same thing in the team’s first home game after Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
And it gets better: Because he was being honored before the game, Gleason was there to see it.
After the play, he playfully tweeted, “Hey, Falcons. #NeverPunt. –SG”
