The View From Section 126

My first game in the endzone at the Peugeot Superdome.  Kind of liked it at first but not so much later on.  I can't see anything unless they're on my 30 yard line or closer.  Anyway, a win is a win but I didn't think either quarterback played particularly well in spite of the stats.  Brees started out throwing high and ended throwing low.  If I didn't know better, I might think he was in decline.  But of course I know better.  Sat next to some Giants fans who were still hung over from a weekend on Bourbon Street, very well behaved except when they were chanting DEFENSE!!! for their team in the first quarter.  It got quiet after that.  On to the pics:

Here's the sign Suzjo held up for the cameras that never pointed at us, as far as I could tell.  (My fault for sending those to you unrotated, Hans.)  Pummel them they did.  We had  fans sitting nearby wanting to take photos of the sign.  Of course they were drunk, but it was flattering anyway.

Pregame warmups, demanding never ending improvement.  Plenty of room for that.

The DB's getting ready for their interception drills.  They didn't drop any.

Ready for the pregame chant.  Note #2 Kasay contemplating his potential.

Payton inspecting his troops as well as the enemy's.  I don't believe he went around to each of his players as I've seen him do in the past.  Too hobbled up, I guess.

Coach Aaron Kromer trying to drill his offensive linemen.  Didn't seem very responsive to him.

Spinach and artichoke dip with chips.  I was burping it by the third quarter.  Dome Dyspepsia.

Kasay still the Lone Ranger during warmups.  I guess it works for him, he didn't miss any kicks.

Daughter Sarjo said the beer vendor asked her what time it was (6:50) and then said they'd already sold as much beer as they usually do by the end of the first quarter.  Hungover Brandon Jacobs fan next to her.

Osi, disengaging from this mess.  Would later be "injured" and leave the game.

Look at that giant butt on #92 Shaun Rogers, noted toilet plugger and undistinguished run stopper.

#21 Patrick Robinson covering #13 Ramses Barden and I use that word "covering" very loosely.

PRob allowing the catch by Hakeem Nicks and Tracy Porter coming in to commit his late hit out of bounds personal foul.  I don't think either of them played very well tonight.

Joe Horn helped out with the halftime punt pass and kick contest.  I didn't recognize him at first.  It's almost 2012.

Seconds before Drew BREEESSS!!!'s thrilling rushing touchdown.  That was a Pierre Thomas style bellyflop for the score.

It wasn't that close.  Not even close.

See ya next time.

I'm tired and cranky, but looking back, I had a good time.  The Superdome renovations are beautiful. I know I was smiling a lot and the fans around me (except the Giants fans) were loud and happy too.  I got to see Jimmy Graham's second TD catch right in front of me (no photo, I can't react that fast and neither can my camera).  I'm lucky that I get to attend a game or two or three every year now so I appreciate my good fortune.
