Ecstatic Saints fans continued the celebration after Sunday night's big game by going to Academy Sports.
Acadianians lined up around the block as soon as the game was over to get their NFC Championship gear.
The store in Lafayette sold the t-shirts, hats and other merchandise from 10:00 Sunday night until about 2:00 am.
"Because it's history-- this is history,"said Katherine Daigle.
The store was ready for the continuing demand-- they got a new shipment in first thing Monday morning, just in time for the morning rush.
Some left their homes before the sun rose to make sure they were first in line.
"Me and my mom and son woke up at 5:00 to come here and traffic was bad over there but we made it here in pretty good time," said Scott Benoit.
Academy says they will not run out-- they will get shipments as long Acadiana demands saints gear.
