All's quiet on the western front


I was up in the mountains watching the Saints game with family.  My wife and I visit the inlaws for an early christmas and spend christmas in town with the other inlaws.  It was an awesome game.  I was excited the whole game and I just couldn't contain myself.  My son told me that at the beginning of the fourth, that the game was over since the Saints were down by 21.  I told him to just wait and you will see the magic of the Saints.  He was impressed until the Drew Brees fumble to end the game.  Yeah the RB should have gone to the other side for the chip block but shoulda coulda woulda, the game is over.  What does this mean for our Saints?? This means that we will not have a perfect season.  What else?? It means we still have the best record we have ever had.  EVER!! I mean EVER!!!!! I wish I could have been in the dome to give our boys a HELL YEAH THANK YOU!!!!  We are in the playoffs.  It's a GARUNTEE!! We have a first round bye and unless we shoot ourselves in the foot, home field advantage throughout the playoffs.  I wish we would have won, but oh well.  I am a Saints fan and I am used to saying that oh well.  I don't mean it in a bad way.  I love these boys so much that even if we were to loose the first game of the playoffs, I would be saying, oh well.  We will get them next year.  I will cheer them no matter what.  My wife and I were shopping in the mall for christmas presents, and I was like "hey lets check out the sporting goods store"  she said "let's wait till after the Superbowl honey"  I think she believes the Saints will take the whole thing and wants me to wait to get something that says Superbowl Champions New Orleans Saints.  I am still high from the game and it's tuesday night.  I read the posts and I noticed that there were not a lot of posts about how bad our defense did or how we sucked that game.  I think. like JND said, we are all still suffering from PTSGD.  I know that I am.  I let this loss just roll off my back, like so many losses and look to next game.  I know that deep down inside, I will cheer these guys on, no matter what happens.  If they don't make it all the way, we will get them next year.  If we don't get them next year then we will get them the year after that.  I keep hope alive and my spirits up.  The only thing that I have to say is where was the spirit in that game???  I felt ten times more mojo in the Pats game then this one.  We played a team on fire, but we were not on fire.  Where is our fire??  I still have mine burning in the pit of my being and it is waiting to turn into an inferno and unleash it on whomever is the unsuspecting foes that we will face.  DREW BREES FOR MVP!!!!
