Only on a Saints Site: What is Your Gris-Gris This Year?

Hi, if you are lurking from another team or region, you are reading culture right now that you can only get from a New Orleans Saints website. We have our own language, live in places with funny names, and often have funny names. With that said, enjoy your confusion for now, and we'll
explain it all later if you need. But definitely read this discussion, whether it makes sense or not.

WhoDats, besides having a talented team, a decent schedule, and better luck regarding injuries, we obviously are doing something right this year. We are Catholics, and all kinds of religions or non-religions, but All Saints Fans do some kind of voodoo thing, which apparently we have chosen well this year.

So? What is your gris-gris this year? And why all of a sudden is it working?

Mine, since '06 has been my new wife! (you see, gris-gris does not have to be something unpleasant. That would be my EX! )
Ok, so '07 and '08 were not all that, she's blingier this year, hence our success. Also, this is crazy, we were eating Chinese food back in July, and her fortune cookie said, "your sports team will win this year." I kid you not. She takes that fortune everywhere. Be sure she smiles upon you. She's Lady Luck!

Well, I know that last year we thought it was going to be our year but as we are getting married on 1st of November of this year we believed that the Saints wanted to wait until we did before winning the Lombardi Trophy as a Wedding Gift for us so that's why they held off last year (stop laughing at the back! It's what we believe so there!)

Mine is pretty simple. I wear my lucky Saints hat given to me when I was supposed to die from cancer. It has proven to be really lucky so far.

Hey, I'm not laughing. We married in '06, and that was the last Magic Year. I wore a black and gold tux, and had a Superdome grooms cake.

Man, thats wild, Rugby. You know Strato was wearing his Saints cap when he had a wreck, totalled his truck, and walked away with bumps & bruises. How does a team with a curse have a lucky hat? Dont know, but glad it does.

I post my incredibly early playoff predictions in order to collect the negative vibe from the hordes of "One game at a time" ninnys. I bottle the negative vibe in stainless steel lined lead containers and then bury it in the opposing team septic tank. The bad joojoo crawls up the sewer and into the opposing coaches colo-rectal area where it resides until gametime and then forces them to concentrate on porcelain plumbing fixtures instead of the game.

HAHAHAHAHAHA! Very nice.

This season I've worn either my Brees jersey or my Saints t-shirt for every game and rub the cross on my necklace constantly. Three of my friends and I get together at my place and watch the game. We decided after the Bills victory that we had to keep the trend going no matter what. We added a fifth member last Sunday for the Giants game, but warned him that if the Saints lost, he would not be allowed back. We know what happened there, so the mojo hasn't stopped. In reality, I know this has no bearing on the outcome, but in my head, it makes all the difference in the world.

Re: Only on a Saints Site: What is Your Gris-Gris This Year?

I remember those voodoo dolls, Canton. You made those for a Bengals game you went to in Cincy.

I almost forgot mine. My ex-wife had an actual civil conversation the other day. Snowflakes were falling in Hell and I knew there would be something different about this year. Also, my game-day ritual-- I paint a shoe-white Fleur on the back window of our vehicle on the way to New Orleans.

One game at at time, Gumbeau, one game at a time. Lets worry.
