A message from a Texans fan


Hi CSC,

I know I don't post here much, but I've been lurking here almost as long as I have lurked over at Battle Red Blog. I just want to say that I, along with a surprisingly large percentage of Texans fans, consider the Saints my NFC team. Now that my beloved squad is finally in the playoffs, I just want to take a moment to wish you guys the best of luck. I have always rooted for you since Brees came to the big easy (I'm from SoCal, and remember San Diego letting him go vividly), and if the Saints were ever in the playoffs they were who I would root for (especially against those damn Colts two years ago).

I feel like Houston and New Orleans share a special connection. From sticking together through tragedies in the gulf (which by the way, my father works for BP. He says sorry), to having joint off season practices every year, to playing each other in the pre and regular seasons this year, there is just something about the Texans and the Saints to me that says "well if my team can't get it, I would love for yours to have it". I truly do love the Saints, almost as much as I love the Texans, and I'm pretty sure Brees' post game speech after breaking the record is the only thing that has brought me tears this year besides Houston making the playoffs.

I guess, at the end of the day, what I'm trying to say is that I really do hope to see you in the Superbowl. There is no other opponent I would rather face in the big dance, and I'm pretty sure that even if we didn't win, the Saints are the only team that losing to wouldn't make me throw a chair through the window.

Good luck friends. If we don't get it, this Texan's fan has your back.
