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 the year in the NFL. #2 FA pick up in Saints history.


2. Saint have a record setting year, and not in a bad way. Drew for Passing yards and Darren for total yards by a player.


3. LSU has an undefeated season. This is great, even though they couldn't finish the deal and win a NC.


4. LA Tech; with a freshman QB (17 years old at the start of the season) have a stellar year.


5. The Ragin Cajuns have a great year, and cap it off with a bowl win!


6. Jimmy Graham is AWESOME! Shockey who?


So see... there has been some good things that happened this year. I hope we can look back on the good things that happened, verses keeping the "blinders" on and seeing only the bad. Think about how great of a year we have had on this site. So I challenge each of you that read this; hold your head high. Don't let the "negative waves" (Kelly's Hero's; for you old timers, like me) beat you down. Take pride in knowing that a lot of good came out of this football season. We as fans tend to let the last game determine our moods for the rest of the year. Don't do it.

So as I end this blog. I really hope you stop and remember the great things we have been able to witness this year in a good way. Yes, losses are tough to swallow but over looking the good things that happen is almost a crime. Don't let a million "At-A-Boys" get ruined by one "O-Crap".

    I would have mentioned The Green Wave, but I figured that would be something negative. Wanted to keep things upbeat!

    Though the close win hurts, it will be good for us in the long run.

    IMO, losing a heartbreaker like this builds more character than a blowout loss. It's damn tough to take, thinking what might have been. It takes big balls and big guts to move forward, but we can take solace in knowing that the Saints left it all out on the field and we'll be motivated next year. After the shock is gone, it's empowering.

    That's why I'm so excited they're moving in another direction on defense. Look, Gregg Williams brought us to the promised land where our defense STUNK before. But it was a flash in the pan.... 1 and done. Once the rest of the NFL figures out what you're doing, they adjust.

    Glad we have something to look forward to!
