Laissez le Saints rouler

Posted by schroeder915 on January 19, 2007

If the Saints win the Superbowl it’s like Katrina never happened, said Stephen Colbert … and monkey boy gets a pass for his pathetic response over the last year and a half?

Nyaaaah. One thing’s for sure, Bush will have to mention New Orleans for the first time since … since … uh … anyone remember?


Library Chronicles’ Jeff tipped me off that Stephen Colbert’s rooting for the Saints over Chicago in the NFC championship game, and why not? The Saints are America’s team (HT: TM, for the link to vote in the poll). Who dat nation is everywhere. This is our year.


With Sean Payton, Drew Brees, Joe Horn, Reggie Bush, John Carney, Marques Colston, Deuce McAlister, Scott Fujita, and more, plus a little Marie Laveau gris-gris, the Saints are unstoppable:

Gris-Gris is sometimes referred to as the iron fist of Voodoo due to its hammer-like quality of relentless pounding until the spell takes effect. Once a Gris-Gris spell is cast, the momentum slowly builds until it becomes an unstoppable force.

Hey, nothing will please me more than to see da Bears frozen out of the game. As a once-upon-a-time cheesehead and Packers fan, the rivalry never dies.

I can’t wait to see Loki dressed up as a Saintsation (HT: Lisa, The Garden of Irks and Delights).


Er … well, maybe I can wait after all.

(By the way, the least I can do for Saintsation Kirsten is to note that as a diabetes patient, she’d like to help Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation find a cure for diabetes.)

Sean Payton for mayor

Posted by schroeder915 on November 1, 2006


We get hit, we learn, we adjust our game plan, and we move on to win the next one. WWL sports announcing legend Jim Henderson said, “You see new stuff, something different, from Sean Payton every weekend” (HT: Library Chronicles).

Can anyone imagine seeing “our mayor” Ray Nagin champion the fight for New Orleans once a week, let alone in a once-a-day status report?

Payton, on Sunday’s defeat to the Ravens:

“I think the first message is the formula,” Payton said. “A game like yesterday just really reiterates everything we’ve talked about leading up to this season. They see it, and they know it. They’re not going to need any special pep talk today by the head coach.

“They’re going to want us to help them get better today. They’re going to want us to give them criticism that’s fair, based on what we’ve seen. And here’s how we think we can improve this. Here’s how we think we can change this and move on. Again, I think it’s important we’re moving on to the next game.”

Of course, you have to start with a game plan, something “our mayor” has thus far failed to deliver. Anyone seen those project worksheets?

Meanwhile, why is it that every time Tom Benson starts talking about moving the Saints out of New Orleans, they start losing?

With a 242 to 354 record over 40 years, New Orleanians have to be among the most loyal fans anywhere. Tom Benson is lucky the fans haven’t left the Saints!
