Why.

If you are going to be successful at anything in life, you must answer why you are doing what you are doing. "What", while important, is not motivating. "How", again, critical to success, but it's not enough. If you have no unifying vision of why you do what you do, there will be no commitment, no sacrifice, no struggle, and ultimately, no success.

For 5 years, there has been no "why". Before 2009, the "why" was evident. Why...

Sanity Zone 3-10-2015 Tick...Tick...Tick...

In week 2 last season, I suggested, given the abysmal performance of the overpriced and, mostly, over-the-hill composition of the roster, that we should consider blowing up the team.

BOOM.

Sanity Zone 2-16-2015 Mardi Gras Special

Posted 02-16-2015 at 10:43 PM by xan

Hey Y'all!

Happy Mardi Gras! Catch dem trows like it's your JOB!!!

It's been a while since enjoying the truly wonderful family feel where we hang during the parades. While it is a remarkable difference between now and the 1960's, it's easy to tell that class is earned not bought.

I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing this particular kind of territorialism that I find creeping into the enjoyment. People are staking out their arrangements with towers,...

REFUND

Posted 12-07-2014 at 03:41 PM by xan

The State of Louisiana and the City of New Orleans provide subsidies and direct payments to the Saints organization that require issuance of debt instruments and interest payments. Rather than invest in infrastructure and education, the goodwill lathered on the Bensons and his FO was ostensibly to provide a competitive environment for a championship caliber sports franchise.

None of this has been worth it. Scandal, incompetence, blatant exploitation of the fan base, filing suit...

Sainity Zone 9-30-14 Hail

Posted 09-30-2014 at 02:17 PM by xan

Friends, Whodats, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury the Saints, not to praise them.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones;

If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
And grievously hath the Saints answer’d it.
Here, under leave of Danno and the rest–
For Danno is an honourable man;
So are they all, all...
