Re: Merry Christmas!!!

Hey all.

Hope you're all enjoying your holidays but if you don't mind... I'll explain why I like the Saints.
When I got a good understanding about football, I was 10. Being born and raised in Baltimore, I was too young to see the great days of Johnny Unitas. He was eventually traded to the Chargers and we got a lot of Chargers coverage in Baltimore. I loved the days of Dan Fouts. Since then, they were my team. Eventually, I moved to San Diego in Summer of 99 and became a season ticket holder.

As for the Saints... around that time, I was like "why are these guys wearing paper bags over their heads?" Go figure... I had family in New Orleans (that I didn't know at the time).
First time I met them, I visited NO. It was some time in the late 80s. They beat the Gnats and for the first time, they made it to the playoffs. I was 18 and will never forget going crazy on Bourbon Street!!!
I was smiling with everybody and thinking about how things had changed since the bagged fans days. At 18 I could legally drink (at that time) and was having such a blast.

Then came that time I revisited NO and went to a game. That was the season when the Saints started at 8-0. It was a Saints/Falcons game. That's when I understood the rivalry. Unfortunately, the Saints lost but it was such a fun time!!!
I was 22 at this time.

BOTTOM LINE... Saints had a place in my heart from the very beginning!!!
The city has an extremely unique character!
The fans are a class act that stuck with their team though more thin than thick!
And you guys deserve what you have now!!!
There is not a single fan here in San Diego that doesn't tip their hat to Drew Brees (unless he's playing against the Chargers).

That's another reason I came here... You guys should be very happy about the respect you are receiving nationwide!!

There will be no holiday until the SB win in Feb. Not even Mardi Gras.

Love,
