Fleur-de-Links Saturday, January 22: Mississippians May Get Super Bowl XLIV Champ License Plates

Welcome to your NFL Conference Championship Weekend.  I am Hans, and I'll be your Spirit Guide today.

News from those games dominates the flower of links today, but we also have the great news for Mississippi from the headline above, a Saints 2010 Photo Gallery, Ivory's agent speaking about his foot surgery, a story on the families in Mississippi that received aid from Sean Payton's foundation, and Pat Y's NFC South news. 

From the Twitterverse, you can learn what Reggie Bush learned about Conference Championship Weekend, and follow a link to a blog article about the lockout that Drew Brees shared.

Swallow the red pill and come along for the ride...
