Just got done reading "Home Team: Coaching the Saints and New Orleans Back to Life" AWESOME BOOK! I think Greg and I will be watching the Superbowl game again this weekend. Yes, it's still on our DVR. I don't know that we'll ever take it off. Maybe at some point we'll have to buy a game DVD or something. Do they even make such a thing?
Anyway, I hope Sean Payton never leaves the Saints. I love what he brings to the team. I love how he does things. He's what the team always needed, some one who gets the city as well as the team. And he cares. That's what a Saints coach needs. It isn't just about being a good coach, they have to work with it all together. If he leaves for more money elsewhere, my heart will be completely broken. It nearly broke my heart when I heard Scott Fujita was leaving. After that, I stopped paying attention to who left.
Everyone who's a fan of other teams keep saying, "Yeah, but they won't do it again." You know what? BIG DEAL. As a life long Saints fan, and I feel that I can say this with great authority, we never thought we'd see the Saints getting TO, much less WIN, a Superbowl. None of that matters to a Saints fan. It ain't really about winning or losing (though winning sure does feel nice) it's about having a team to root for. I don't even know if it's that even. It's the Saints. There are certain things that just belong to New Orleans; St. Louis Cathedral, Mississippi River, Red Beans & Rice, Po-Boys, Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, and so on. The Saints are very much on that list, just now you can say it with a little more pride. BTW, that's "Superbowl Champion Saints" to you non-fans. ;P
Bless you Boys.
