First, some business. Two Saints will be speaking at the NFL Rookie Symposium: Will Smith will be delivering his dissertation, "The Pursuit of Happyness: Gettin' Jiggy in the Wild Wild West"; Reggie Bush will present his photo-essay, "Mashing Kim's Guts." Also scheduled to speak: Eddie Kennison on Quitting, DeAngelo Hall on Being Overrated, and commissioner Roger Goodell on Martial Law. Should be educational and fun.
Eleven more Sundays until Opening (Thurs)Day
For the Saints franchise and fanbase, this was the moment of immersion, when they found themselves submerged in the living body of hope, and emerged cleansed of the sins of losing.
