Saints Win Super Bowl XLIV!

I am still beaming from last night's win.  In their first Super Bowl ever, the New Orleans Saints defeated the Indianapolis Colts 31 to 17 in Super Bowl XLIV. The Saints played consistently well despite a rocky beginning. Perhaps it was the vibe of the performance by The Who at half time or some inspired speech by head coach, Sean Payton because they came out in true Black and Gold form the 3rd quarter. The onside kick surprised us all but set the tone. I felt them saying to themselves, who dat said they gonna beat them Saints, whot dat! And the pick 6 by Tracy Porter late in the 4th quarter, followed by their last touchdown sealed the deal.

Knowing the consistent game of the Colts offense, I wouldn't let myself celebrate the victory until the clock hit zero. And then I yelled...so excited for the Saints -a well deserved win. I am sure the celebration will continue right into the Mardi Gras season. Laissez le bon temps roulez fellas! Let the good times roll!

The Saints 1st Superbowl!

The New Orleans Saints beat the Minnesota Vikings in overtime 31 -28 and are on their way to their very first Super Bowl.  Clearly this article is significant as sports are not typically covered on this blog.  But I can't hold back my excitement for my hometown.   Wishing the Black and Gold a win in the Super Bowl where they face the Colts lead by Peyton Manning, a New Orleans native I might add.  I feel a little of the Big Easy coming out...Who Dat said they gonna beat them Saints, Who Dat, Who Dat!
