Fleur-de-Links October 10, 2010: New Orleans Saints @ Arizona Cardinals - Duel in the Desert?

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Well, it's probably more accurate to call it the Duel in the Closed-Roof, Climate-Controlled Environment Of The University Of Phoenix Stadium That Is Located in Glendale, Arizona, Which Has An Arid Climate. Now, that's much better and more epic-sounding, than that bland, misleading Duel in the Desert, isn't it?

Big Boss Dave has taken care of your audio/visual fix in fine fashion for this morning's pre-game buffet with the return of the ever-popular Sunday Morning A/V Club, and now it's time for the final tweets and links to news and notes heading into this afternoon's late-game kickoff between the Saints and Cardinals.
