BLACK AND GOLD - SUPER BOWL
It was a stellar ending to a not so stellar weekend. After spending the better part of two days laying in bed or sitting around the house close to the kleenex and wrapped up in a snuggie, I was finally able to drag myself into the shower late Sunday afternoon, then watch the Saints-Vikings game.
I had to pass up lunch at Texas Roadhouse with KenEllie (although LINDA WENT) and then a Mexican feast at MD/DLGs (although LINDA WENT). At least I got to see the playoff game and watch the ball sail through the uprights to clinch a win and the Saints first EVER trip to the Super Bowl.
Now it's on to Miami to face homeboy and hometown favorite Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts! I hope the play by play is a little less bias than they seemed to be yesterday. It almost seemed as if the sportscasters were really pulling for Brett Favre over the Saints. It was pretty much all they talked about. After the game Scott Fujita, in response to a question about Favre, replied, "Tonight is not about Brett Favre, it's about the Saints." I couldn't agree with him more.!!
The bottom line is that, although many will be pulling for Manning because he is a "favorite son", the fact of the matter is that a)he is NOT a Saint and b)he never has been a Saint, to the Who Dat Nation should have no problem knowing who to be rooting for!! GEAUX SAINTS!!
