Twas the night before Saints Camp. . . .

Twas the night before Saints Camp and despite all the frenzy,
not an interception was missed, not even by McKenzie.
The jerseys were hung by the chimney with care
in hopes that a Lombardi trophy would soon be there.

Drew Brees was nestled all snug in his bed
with no thoughts of indictments filling his head.
Marques wore his grip glove, Fred Thomas his cast
and pledged “I won’t get burned this year, I’ll be super-fast!”
The backup QBs in their black and gold caps
joked “Let’s ‘pull a Romo’ and fumble some snaps!”

When out on the field there arose such a clatter.
Dhani put down his bow tie to see what was the matter.
Away to the window Copper flew like a flash,
But it was only Joe Horn throwing his career in the trash.

Another loud noise gave the boys quite a fright
…must mean more gunshots in Uptown tonight.
When, what to their wondering eyes should appear
But Coach Sean Payton - and his eyes full of tears.

He unchained a dog once so lively and quick,
saying “Looks like we had another visit from Vick.”
More rapid than Eagles he said this Saints team will be.
And the players all ran to him bursting with glee.

“On Reggie! On Deuce! On Mark Simoneau!
We’re headed to Millsaps, not Thibodeaux!
To I-10 East and to the Twin Spans
Let’s prepare for the season with our Mississippi fans!”

They knew in an instant there’d be a ring this year.
For jolly old Payton made one thing quite clear.
“The gift of winning gives our fans an escape
from shady contractors and FEMA red tape.”

In 2006 they thought it was luck
Now we’ve got to show them we don’t really suck.
Another trip to the playoffs, yes that’s what we crave
and this time we’ll send those Bears back to their caves!

Drew sprang to his feet, got his team all pumped!
“We’re helping the Gulf Coast out of this slump!”
I heard Reggie exclaim as they drove out of sight.
“Enjoy your title now Colts…see you opening night!”
