And so it ends....

LSU loses the National Championship Game. It will go down as one of the worst losses by a #1 team in HISTORY. I still want to vomit.

The Saints lose to the 49ers in an ugly way. Just not as ugly as LSU v Bama.

To most it would seem like a terrible year to be a fan of Sports in the State of Louisiana. Right?

WRONG.

Let's look at the good.

1. Saints get Darren Sproles. Who has without a doubt the best free agent pick up of...

Beat by Both, part deaux; The long walk home ...

Posted 01-15-2012 at 07:20 AM by SloMotion

... the shadowy figure navigates his way through the dimly lit, northeast Detroit neighborhood, "Not a bad evening to get mugged" he thinks to himself, the temperature continues to drop and a light snow begins to fall. It occurs to him that it might be a bad omen, the snow ... someone always dies in the movies when it snows. He reaches his destination, it's been awhile, but they know who he is, the bartender PBR's him ... "Watching the game?" "Yeah" ... the channel...

Tebow Is Winning Me Over

Okay, so, as an LSU homer I couldn't like Tim coming out of college. I mean, you know, he's still the enemy or something. Oh! By the way, I'm not the cheerleader on the top of the pyramid, but I'm smart enough to know what he did as a QB in college wouldn't translate to the pro game. I wasn't Tebow when Tebow wasn't cool. I never was, right? And I'm not (or wasn't) alone.

So my common lament prior to the draft was, "Just say NO to Tebow". Don't draft him. Pick him up as...

Atlanta and the Steelers

Posted 01-09-2012 at 11:41 AM by mike27

I didn't bet on either, nor do I bet anymore, but yesterday reminded me of when I used to place a wager once and a while. I liked Atlanta and the Steelers', so...

But seriously, the Steelers' kind of had the feel of the Saints' loss at Seattle last year--they were just beaten down, and injured, limping along. But Atlanta--WTF was that? Seriously?

Beat by Both; A Lions fan's perspective on Saints/Forty-Niners

I know what you're thinking, WTH is a Lions fan doing blogging on a Saints forum about the Forty-Niners? Well, let me tell you . . . being from the Motor City, I'm opinionated, never at a loss for words and in the unique postion of having been beaten by both New Orleans and San Francisco . . . so, without further ado, I would like to thank my hosts at Black and Gold for giving me the opportunity to write this blog and finally realize a lifelong dream of being a 'beat writer', lol.
