Saints Fans ARE Different!

Imagine the Saints beating the Patriots Monday night. Of course, we have been imagining this pretty much all season. Now, think of the party that will follow:

About 10,000 delirious Saints Fans storm the French Quarter. Bars begin running out of booze and reinforcement bartenders are out in force. Waitresses are making enough tips to retire early. Pat O’Brian’s puts out an emergency order for more Hurricane glasses. A convoy of trucks begins supplemental deliveries to all bars to beef up the stock. Musicians are playing “When the Saints Go Marching In” for the 1,000th time. FEMA puts “Port-o-Lets” on every corner, too late. By 8:00 AM the FQ looks like the last scene from “Platoon.” The Air National Guard is airlifting torn and tattered businessmen/women to their office so they can get fired in person. Ray Noggin’ has set up a control center to rejoin fans who were separated in the fray. By noon, the dust has settled and Walgreen’s is seeing it’s first regular customers since the same time the day before. The “Times Picayune” puts its morning edition out very late with the headline reading, “Saints Fans Celebrate in Their Usual Manner.”

Now, imagine the Saints losing to the Patriots Monday night. Of course, we have been dreading this pretty much all season. What would the fans do post-game?

Saints Fans ARE different.  We celebrate the love of our team over W's and L's.  We celebrate the fact that 10-0 or 0-10, the Black and Gold is going to be out there every week and give their best shot for New Orleans and those of us who populate this blog.  They are the "doers" and we are the "watchers" and we love watching them do what they do!!!  GEAUX SAINTS!!!
