****Out of state fan****

I found this story on another board (non-sport site) and thought I'd share it with all of you, the guy who wrote this story was replying back to me for a question I had for him .

"O.K., so why would a guy living in Columbus Ohio (me) be such a Saints fan? It's all about vengeance. It was 1988 and the Saints were playing the Eagles for a Wild Card clinch. I was living with a girl at the time that was a true bit(h. We had become bitter rivals and I was moving out the following weekend. The hatred was palpable, you get the idea. Anyway, it just so happened her favorite team was the Eagles. I never really cared either way about them, until then. I prayed before the game and said in my prayer that if the Saints, whom I never really cared about until then either, beat these guys I would become a fan and go buy a Saints hat and shirt the next day. The Saints won, I became a fan and bought my shirt and hat, I put the sports page clipping up on my desk at work and moved out that next weekend."

Rest In Peace JoeSam, thanks for everything my friend.

Dear Question Responder.....

You've learned a valuable lesson. Eagles fans boo their team as they run on the field. They hate themselves, their team and you. In no particular order.
