I want you in the right frame of mind when you read this Saints Nation, so click here and let this play in the background while I get you so jacked up you'll be ready to sub in for any players the Saints might lose to suspension this year.
Stand up and be counted! Saints fans its time to put this behind us and get ready for what will undoubtedly be the biggest season in the history of New Orleans Saints football. And guess what? You get to be a part of it. The best part is, we are going back to the Super Bowl this year.
Now I'm not pulling a Rex Ryan here, I'm just predicting fate. This is both the ultimate prize and redemption; it's already carved in black and gold. An attempt was made to smear the name of our beloved Saints. We will not stand by idle. I call upon you this season to be even more dedicated than you have ever been for your Saints. When you think you have done enough, do a little more. Crazy costumes, walking brass bands, Supa Saint; I want it all on display multiplied times forty-seven. An extra little bit for each year the Super Bowl will have been in existence.
How awesome is it going to be the evening of February 3, 2013 when Roger Goodell is forced to stand on our field, our stage, and pass our city the Lombardi trophy? I salivate just relishing the thought. He'll be smiling because he has to, but deep down hating every minute of the fact that we took his best shot. It just wasn't good enough.
Saints fans are the greatest fans in the nation. We will echo Sean Payton's statement, "I will be more vigilant." Saints Nation will be more vigilant, ever awake, and more alert than ever! We will cheer so loud that the dome will need another renovation. We will travel to away games so deep; our opponent will look like the visitors. Oh, and we will #FreePayton. He may not be on the sidelines, but he will be heard through each and every WHO DAT. There will be no mercy for anyone in our path. You thought the Patriots never let off the gas? Thirty points...forty points...fifty burger. You line up across from us on the field or in the stands, you are getting everything we've got. And please do not mistakenly think that our defense will digress one bit. We will still be delivering the same snot bubbling fury, within the rules, as we always have.
Get ready WHO DATS! The clock is ticking. We are about to kick some ass and take names. If you are an outsider looking in, don't take it personal. We didn't.
Stand up and be counted.
