Re: Very Sad News... JoeSam passes away

This news is so shocking. I really don't know what to say other than that he was one of the best things about this board.

RIP, Joe, this place won't be the same without you.

Re: Very Sad News... JoeSam passes away

I am shocked to say the least . . . I have always had the utmost respect for JoeSam's love of the Saints. He was the consummate fan and certainly was one of the Saints' greatest. I for one call for his to be the inaugural induction into the Saints' Fan Hall of Fame. His insight into the team we all love is unmatched. My one regret for JoeSam is that he never saw them go to the BIG ONE. Maybe he can have more influence on the team. My regrets to his family and will remember each of you that are grieving your loss in my prayers. Long live the influence of JoeSam on all that enters the Black and Gold.

Joe's nephew posted something in the administration forums and I tried to move it here... somehow it got lost. It said he was going to be cremated this weekend and his ashes were going to be spread into the Gulf.

Re: Very Sad News... JoeSam passes away

I find it amazing how much this news has impacted me. I never met Joesam, but find myself deeply moved with sympathy and feelings of tremendous loss. Over the years of reading his opinions, his passion for our beloved and sometimes hapless Saints, his analysis and experience, and his tireless efforts to maintain peace and civility on this board; I feel I've come to call this man I never met "friend" - at least for my part. Rest in peace, friend.

Re: Very Sad News... JoeSam passes away

I found a blog that JoeSam did in Jan. of this year on www.bayoubuzz.com . . .

"How can you only thank this bunch of guys for all they have done? I had the honor of being at training camp with them for 3 weeks. I saw first hand the work they put in. These men deserve to give themselves the very best and that is to WIN the Super Bowl. As for what they have done for me, I have been a fan since the team was announced. I've recently had all kinds of health problems but I seem to have lived long enough to see my boys go to the limit. So go get 'em boys. Give me thaat one thing I've always wanted. The New Orleans Saints winning the Super Bowl. God Bless you boys, Joe S. Irvine"

Re: Very Sad News... JoeSam passes away

With all due respect, in the tradition of the Mexican “calaveras”:

Here lies Joe Sam Irvine
Who in life was a Saints fan
And couldn’t understand
Why his team never won The Big One.

He moderated our forum
And if we started cussin’
He would edit our postin’
To preserve the site’s decorum

A ParrotHead he was
And what better reason
That another Saints losing season
To hit the unholy grass

So Rest In Peace, my friend
And I hope most sincerely
That When The Saints Go Marching In
From The Heavens you’ll be cheering

WHODAT!!

Rest in peace, JoeSam. You will be missed.

La neta es chida, pero inalcanzable

Re: Very Sad News... JoeSam passes away

Hadn't been a regular of late but had many conversations via threads with JoeSam. This was my 1st Saints site and as everyone knows Joe was a class act...

RIP Joe Sam, you've earned it. You'll be missed by many many friends.
