Great post! From New Orleans but live in Boston now and had a bunch of Pats fans cheering for the Saints! My girlfriend will never give up her Pats but the Saints are a close second for her now.

Re: These Are YOUR Saints Too!

Been a Saints fan for a long time here in North Carolina and catch all kinds of crap for wearing my Saints jersey all year long. Listened to everyone talk smack all season and everytime reminded them that the Super Bowl would prove what I've known ever since Drew Brees came to NO. WE ARE the BEST TEAM in the WORLD! North Carolinian by birth, Saints fan by the grace of GOD! WHO DAT!

Re: These Are YOUR Saints Too!

Nice post Mike. I am in what I like to call "The Front Lines" here in Shreveport. Every word you said is true. It is tough being here in Shreveport and being a Saints fan. I hope people around the country got a little better understanding this week of what a true Saints fan really is. There is no other team of any sport in the world that has fans like Saints fans.

WHO-DAT!

Just remember, the first home game of the season we get to hear the announcer say: Welcome you to New Orleans and the Louisiana Superdome, where today the DEFENDING SUPERBOWL CHAMPIONS NEW ORLEANS SAINTS start the season to defend their title against the....

This post made me give up my lurker status and register! Well Said Sky! They are MY saints and have been since early 90's and I love them more and more win or lose. We have tons of Snowbirds in FL this time of year that have teased me for my Saints garb....even saying they'd be back to "rub it in my face" when the Colts won. Guess what, they never came back. My point is they are MY boys and I am proud of them and all they have accomplished. I love New Orleans, the Saints and the whole Who Dat Nation!

Had we lost the Super Bowl, I believe we would still be having this conversation.

Way to represent, Florida Brother. These are YOUR Saints.

I'll bet we hear from Alabama too.

Re: These Are YOUR Saints Too!

Born in Houston, but my family came from South Dakota and we moved back here when I was little. Back in the early 90's I could've been a Vikes or a Chiefs or a Cowboys fan, but I saw a few of those games with the Dome Patrol D and awesome colors and I was hooked.

Now one advantage of being remote is my kids can go around and say "My daddy's team won the Super Bowl" and up here it's something not something you hear a lot with many Bears, Chiefs, Vikes fans around! Gotta love it.

One of these days, sooner rather than later, I'll make my pilgrimage to New Orleans and get my Fleur De Lis tattoo. #1 in bold on my bucket list.
