Saints News 7/22/13: Junior Galette, Martez Wilson Eager To 'Turn it Up' A Notch For Saints

New, comments

Mike Triplett from NOLA.com has an interesting article on Galette and Wilson. Ya know what's the best thing about it? It doesn't say anything about a royal baby being born today. Geez! Why is that such huge world news!? Who cares!? In other news not involving a royal obstetrician and gilded leg stirrups, the Saints finally find a more modern look for their official team website and Mickey Loomis is the first interviewee for the new Black & Blue Report. In classic Loomis fashion, he provides answers to questions but doesn't really say much.
