Re: New blood

There was a story a few years ago that stated that LA raises the most NFL players per capita of any state.

LOL. They will probably have their Saints' card revoked if they don't make the team, and will have to settle on going home and getting fatter while they cheer for the Falcons.

LMAO - I spit my coffee out on that one.

OK, with that said, lets lighten up a little on Choupique. He has been missing the last couple of weeks. I was starting to get worried about him. I think he went to sensitivity training. He looks like he's lightened up a little and his posts the last couple of days have been civil. I'm willin to give him another chance. Like everybody on this board , he has an opinion and can share it with us. However, the first time he call anybody a douchbag or revokes anybody's Saints fanhood, I'm piling on with you.
