Fleur-De-Links Saturday, September 25: No Soup For You!!

Come and get it!!  Soup's on.  Well, not really soup.  More like the soup bowl full of the latest in links, tweets, and videos for the Saints.  Is that the soup you're wanting to bury your face in?  Then you're in the right place.

If you're tired of this soup metaphor, then just go ahead and make the jump.  If you enjoy this metaphor, then you're out of luck, because I don't have anything else for it.

Today's edition features lots of college football tweets, contrasting views on Tusk, scouting reports, previews, and a feature story on Malcolm Jenkins, among other nuggets of news for the Saints fans.  Enjoy!!

A little birdie told me that Dave C, our fearless leader, is dropping into Tiger Stadium for the LSU - West Virginia game tonight - what a weekend of FOOTBALL!!!
