Re: Saints Superbowl Championship gear!

I finally got around to ordering some stuff--needed some SB gear!

Have bought all the commemorative mag's I could find in the stores. Ordered from NFLShop.com the Super Bowl locker room championship Tee, got Mrs. Stiggs a long sleeve ladies' shirt in black with "Saints" on the front and the Louisiana/fluer de lis logo on the back. And a SB XLIV program.

Re: Saints Superbowl Championship gear!

If you look at the link I posted, you will see that there were rings made specifically for fans to buy rings. They made several for the Steelers fans last year and I am sure they will do the same this year.

Re: Saints Superbowl Championship gear!

I emailed Jostens to ask them if they would be making any rings for fans. Will let you know what the response is.

New Orleans Saints' Super Bowl season highlights captured on DVD
By Dave Walker, The Times-Picayune
March 07, 2010, 12:29PM

It’s still hard, isn’t it, to think about anything but hittin’ that fleur-de-lis?
Saintsdvdfinal.jpgWarner Home Video

In so many words, those words were Sean Payton’s final instructions to Garrett Hartley before the New Orleans Saints kicker won the NFC Championship game and A) sent his team to the Super Bowl and B) the team’s city into a state of weeks-long bliss.

Payton was referring to an iconic emblem on a Superdome wall, high and dead-center behind the goalposts.

A NFL Films microphone captured a moment both salty (Payton slips an attention-focusing profanity between de and lis, neatly excised from the online versions of the clip) and heartwarming.

“Just hit your kick though, son,” Payton says as he sends Hartley onto the field. “Here’s why: You deserve to be here.”

Yes. He, they and we did.

Payton’s words to Hartley – the last words of the Aints era – are one of the many highlights captured in the official DVD of the Saints’ championship season, to be released Tuesday.

The disc, titled “2010 Super Bowl XLIV Champions,” will arrive amid a flurry of promotion, including an invitation-only screening Monday night and several retail-location signing events (see list below).

Work on the film began well before Hartley took aim at that fleur-de-freaking-lis.

A team of NFL Films producers began sorting through footage when the Minnesota Vikings and New York Jets were still viable Super Bowl contenders.

“We have to go into production on it before we know who’s going to be in the Super Bowl,” said David Plaut, senior producer at NFL Films. “I began researching both the Vikings and Saints the week before those two teams even played in the conference championship game.

“Once we got down to the final two teams, we dropped all the Vikings stuff and I proceeded to start editing and writing a Saints film.”

Meaning, another staffer also started editing and writing an Indianapolis Colts championship film, so demanding are the quick-turnaround NFL Films deadlines.

Too bad about that one.

The Saints film is organized chronologically from preseason to the Super Bowl and beyond (Lombardi Gras parade highlights play under the closing credits), with scene-setting emphasis on “the heritage of Saints football, all the years of disappointment,” Plaut said. “You set up the story with a back-story. You give the viewer the story about where the team was coming from going into the 2009 season, and then pretty much the games take over.

“The Saints are a very, very rich story, obviously, from which to draw.”

And that fact was evident to NFL Films early on in the season. Because of the Saints’ successful early season, extra crews were assigned to games – making the editing task even more difficult.

“Most NFL Films games have a minimum of two people, a guy on top in the press box, one guy on the ground,” Plaut said. “As the Saints started to get better and better and kept winning and winning, we sent maybe five, six cameras to some of their key games.

They were such a great story, we realized this was going to be a special season. The sheer bulk of material you have to go through is massive, then you pare it down to the very best shots, the very best sounds.”

From both on and off the field.

“The fan base in New Orleans is absolutely fascinating,” Plaut said. “Such a polyglot, such a cross-section of people. It was a thrill. Some communities are more homogenous, but the Saints’ fan base is so diverse it became almost a problem because there were so many good crowd shots.”

“2010 Super Bowl XLIV Champions” will be sold at a list price of $24.98, though online discounts are already being offered. A high-definition Blu-ray version costs $34.99. The online store iTunes is selling a 20-minute Super Bowl highlights download for $1.99. Also there, the entire game, minus commercials, can be downloaded for $2.99.

Both the regular DVD and Blu-ray discs released this week by NFL Films and Warner Home Video come with extras (almost an hour’s worth on the Blu-ray, Plaut said). Media Day interviews, the complete halftime performance by The Who, post-game ceremonies and a profile of Anthony Hargrove (drawn from a series of stories that ran on the NFL Network throughout the season) appear on both. The Blue-ray version also features profiles of Sean Payton, Jeremy Shockey and Deuce McAllister.

And, of course, there’s that kick.

“The whole exchange is great,” Plaut said. “First of all, (there’s) the history of the Saints. So many times when there was the opportunity to do something, after years of futility, and then have them slip on the banana peel.

“The fact that (Payton) is calling upon (Hartley) at this point to try and imbue him with confidence, and he’s not trying to blow smoke up his ass. I think players can tell when they’re being conned. He wants to say the right thing, and then he says, ‘You make this, kid, because you deserve to be here.’

“There are so many layers upon layers of drama here.

"I’ve been doing this film since 1985, when the first one came out, the 1985 Chicago Bears. I’ve done 18 of the 25 we’ve done, and this story is the best one I’ve ever had to work with.

“You have a team that the whole country, other than people in the Hoosier State, is rooting for. They weren’t supposed to win, but they found a way to win, and they did it with grit and intelligence and by outsmarting people and by just playing hard.

“My hope as a filmmaker is that some of those ideas will come across when people see this film.”

Signing events:

Tracy Porter and Will Smith will sign the DVD at a special “Midnight Madness” event from 11:59 p.m. Monday (March 8) to 2 a.m. Tuesday (March 9) at Best Buy, 6205 Veterans Memorial Blvd. in Metairie.
