Now I was born and raised in New Orleans Louisiana. Went to grade school on the west bank in a Catholic co-ed school. Went to high school on the west bank in a Catholic all girl school. Went to college on the west bank in a Catholic private college.... And down on the West Bank--We are Saints Fans!
There are some details you need to know about the Saints before you follow on with the post... The Saints, since the dawn of the franchise, have been losers. We've never won a Super Bowl... hell we've never won a championship game at all. We've been close---but never ever have we been winners... that is Until NOW!
Now the Tigers on the other hand, have won THREE National Championships. Have won countless bowl games.... They are truly winners. Its easy to be a Tiger fan.
It takes work and dedication to have been a Saints fan.
I moved to "Tiger Land" Baton Rouge back in 2006... So these past 3 years have given me a respect and love for the Tigers. But the team closest to my heart have always been and will always be the Saints.
If you follow football you MUST KNOW that the Saints and the Colts share a record of 13 games won with NO loses this season. That is REMARKABLE.... Not because its 2 teams undefeated, but because the Saints are one of those 2 teams.
but you better believe that New Orleans the city and the fans within that city and state, for that matter, are the absolute most ENTHUSIASTIC fans on the planet. (Ever been to an LSU tailgate? Trust me all of Baton Rouge packs up and travels the USA whenever there's a game.) Football is no joke in Louisiana.
So if you want a taste of the songs/poems/videos being spread around this incredibly exciting season... here they are!!!!!
To the tune of "Grandma got run over by a reindeer":
"Falcons got runover by the Saints, dear, playin' down in Georgia Sunday eve. You can say there's no such thing as gris-gris, but as for us Who Dat's, we Believe. And we are all so proud of Drew Brees. He's been leading us so well, and we all can't help but wonder, how much ice is building up right now in hell..."
To the tune of "Let it snow":
"Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the Saints are so delightful. and the Redskins they helped us go 12 and Oh, 12 and Oh, 12 and 0h!"
♫ ♫ City sidewalks, busy sidewalks, dressed in black and gold style, in the air there’s a feeling of winning….. Who dats passing, we’re all laughing, this is Drew’s big scene and on every street corner you’ll hear…Super bowl…Super bowl….It’s Super bowl time for this city ….ring a ling, who dats sing…. Saints marching on Super bowl day! ♫ ♫
