Got word that we're going to be wearing 'throwback' uniforms this weekend at home against the Texans.

Hate the idea. Just don't live in the past. I revisit in memory only and only on special occasions! LOL

Anyway, yesterday, my neighbor brings over a Gameday Program from back in 1988. It reminded me of how much simpler times used to be back then. It doesn't seem like '88 was that long ago, but if a guy had at that time brought me an old Gameday Program just as old, it would have to be from back in '65! Puts it in perspective. Hell, that was BEFORE the Saints.

The advertisements were mostly very simple, straight forward and not one contained a scantily-clad woman. The cars were like match-boxes. Back during the K-Car days...

I don't remember Dom Capers as one of our coaches on Defense! He has the Saints to thank, in part, for how well he's done. And our Offensive Coordinator (Smith) had that kinky mullet before mullets were cool!

Those poor Saints had no idea how mediocre they were, and the idea of Super Bowl 44 or being the World Champions was as far off as a man standing on Mars at that time.

That really was a cool read. I may start saving Gameday Programs so that I can look back one day in the same way I did last night.

But "Throwback Uniform" week in the NFL... well, you can KEEP that!!!

    I personally welcome the throwbacks. Class personified and we could show Denver how to do retro threads. Bring on the Big Fleur!

    Could be scary. The older saints fans may have a hard time visually comprehending this team in those uniforms.
