Fujiii!!!!!!


"I can eat oreos faster than you, Peyton."

"Hey, I don't think he liked that joke. Did ya like it Peyton? I don't think he liked it."

"Hi. My name's Scott. I'm Japanese."

From the first signing of the Sean Payton regime on the 3-13 Saints team to a symbol and icon throughout the city, Scott Fujita will be a very difficult personality to replace. The guy always played his heart out, if not always lights out. He provided us with many memories, and asides from Drew Brees, Fuji is probably New Orleans's biggest donor, having donated half his playoff salaries to help rebuild, just days before signing with his new team. He was one for the city, all the way through till his last day with the team. How many people do you know that could look at Peyton Manning in the face in the Super Bowl, especially when Manning was driving straight down the field like a machine, and tell him off? And then to follow through with that statement? Guys like Fujita are hard to come by nowadays. I wish Fuji the best of luck with the Cleveland Browns and a successful and happy end to his career, wherever it may end. Now I look for a different chant on gameday than "Fujiiii!!!!!" Scott will always be in the hearts of New Orleanians. Please join me in wishing him the best.
