friendly support?

Has anyone else had a lot of friends recently coming up to you or calling you to voice their support for the saints? None of my friends are saints fans, they pull more for the local teams the browns, bengals, steelers.....Yet they know how much the saints mean to me and Ive recently run into so many people and the first thing they say to me is "Man Im pulling for your saints, I know how much you want this."

It cracks me up to see people getting excited about me getting excited for a team they dont like. I find it awesome that so many people are pulling for us and I cant help but smile at the situation we're all in.

RE: friendly support?

I've had a few calls this morning, even from Cowboys fans. Great to know that the only people pulling for the bears are die hard bears fans. Maybe this will be a gigantic Karmic incident.

RE: friendly support?

Most of my friends are die-hard Saints fans so we encourage each other, we do stay positive.
I'm very excited but somewhat nervous right now.
I so pumped up today I can hardly stand it, I've been a Saints fan since 1977 and have to say this by far the most exciting game ever for me.

I have not even attempted to answer the cell, phone, or emails. I won't/don't care about well wishes until the W is in the column!

I like the Saints chances today! Get to Rex early and often, KEY!

Yeah, my friends have been saying the same thing. A friend of mine from Philly placed a friendly wager on the divisional game. Now he has to have our logo as his myspace profile But yeah, he said he hopes we go all the way now.

spoke to 3 family members (all eagles fans) who will be going for our boys today, the friends i'm hanging out with today are watching both games, they are all patriot fans and will all be pulling for our boys as well. i'll take the support, but they all know it means 100 times more to me.

All week it's been congratulations and good lucks from the Eagles fans at my work. Every friend I've talked to this last week has thrown their support for the Saints and wish them luck.
