The story begins, "How about a two-dat?"

Ted Jackson/The Times-Picayune
The New Orleans Saints Super Bowl win was almost universally liked.
It's a preview on the 2010 New Orleans Saints that caught my eye, one in which Bruce Marshall, a Las Vegas-based NFL pundit, tells us he could not recall "a more refreshing sporting development" than the storybook journey Sean Payton's football team traveled last season.

Marshall said it was accompanied by "a joie de vivre rarely seen in the button-down world of today's NFL, where teams often look and play alike and title winners are frequently rewarded for ruthless and often colorless efficiency."
New Orleans, said Marshall, "succeeded without embarrassing itself, absent the shameless self-promoters, insufferable egotists, and off-field controversies that often cloud the perceptions of other teams. About the only tabloid-like material we got from the Saints was of the harmless variety, with Reggie Bush in an on-again, off-again relationship with TV diva Kim Kardashian. New Orleans was mostly good, clean fun last season, featuring easy-to-like sorts such as Drew Brees and Sean Payton."
You read this, then you read that Tom Brady, the New England quarterback, is quoted as saying, "I hate the Jets."

So true, as long as the Saints continue to act professional and not get too cocky, they should be fine in the national spotlight.

I'm not seeing it. Most people I talk to hate us and think the NFL gave the Super Bowl to us.

Strangely enough, it seems that the Panthers fans here are the nicest ones.

A lot of people like an underdog, out of nowhere team that beats the perennial playoff contenders. Particularly if the D of that team puts Favre pants on the ground.

Also, we obtained a good % of fans when Who Dat crushed the Patriots in the regular season, last year. Same could be said for a couple of other games.

Actually, I think we're becoming rather disliked here in Houston. Its fun to listen to the local sports radio nerds cry about whatever conspiracy theory they have for how we won the Super Bowl. (um, having the best QB in the game kinda helps.)

The local team is drab and dull, along with its stadium and support, but across the bayou, its party time.

You should go to the sports bars here. One side looks like a library, the other looks like Mardi Gras.

Good report SM. But even after winning a superbowl our beloved Saint still get no respect. But that may change if we win it again this year.

The only people that don't love us are the ones who hate us for beating their team........or the media because their heads are up the big market butts.
