Sean Payton Takes Jerry's Wine, Rubs Superbowl win in his face, Gains new Rivarly in Cowboys!!!!!!!!

On Friday night, the Saints' staff at the combine gathered in a private room at St. Elmo Steakhouse, an 108-year-old Indy landmark, for a final celebratory nod to the Super Bowl win over the Colts. This is a group that likes its wine, and likes to have fun.

At the restaurant, word passed that Dallas owner Jerry Jones would have his Dallas group in this exact room Saturday night for a team dinner. Jones had even phoned ahead, according to a waiter, to make sure a magnum of a wine he loved, Caymus Special Selection cabernet sauvignon, was ready to be served at dinner.

Sean Payton told the waiter he'd like to have that wine, too. The waiter told him: Sorry, sir. We have only one bottle left, and it's reserved for Mr. Jones.
Payton said he'd like to have the bottle nonetheless. I assume there was much angst on the part of the wait staff at that point. My God! Who do we piss off? One of the most powerful owners in the NFL, or the coach who's the toast of the NFL, the coach who just won the Super Bowl?
Here came the bottle of Caymus Special Selection, and the Saints' party drained it.

But drinking Jones' wine wasn't enough. Payton gave the waiter some instructions, took out his pen ... and, well, the Cowboys party found at the middle of their table the next evening an empty magnum of Caymus Special Selection cabernet sauvignon, with these words hand-written on the fancy label:

Talk about ballsy! This does really surprise me. I would have figured that Payton would have paid for it and have delivered it himself to Jones. hmmmm......guess not.

6. I think the Saints are close to a long-term deal with guard Jahri Evans, which would be a coup. They don't want to keep having to tag him and paying him a high guaranteed salary; they'd like to finalize a long-term deal with the most valuable player on their line.

I like this from King's "Ten Things I Think I Think" on page 5.

We will see

Re: Sean Payton Takes Jerry's Wine

I love what Payton did. In your face Jerry.

I don't like the talk of changing rules because of Saints wins. It comes across as "the Saints wouldn't have won if..." and "we need to change the rules to make it more fair."

I'm still excited about the Superbowl win and I'm becoming easily offended at people trying to write off the wins in both the Superbowl and the NFCCG by rule change ideas or calling the offsides kick in the SB cheap.

At first I ignored any negativity because it was time to enjoy the Saints biggest win in their history but after reading the good, the bad and the ludicrous I'm becoming more agitated.

There. I got that out.

GEAUX SAINTS!!!
