Wright Thompson gets it:

As people waited, the craziest thing happened. What started as a funeral turned into a celebration — a celebration not just of a team, but of themselves. The beers they raised were toasts to their own resiliency. Fans screamed. They chanted. They sang that U2 song “The Saints are Coming.”
