Freud de lis

Bye week, like Ash Wednesday or jail time, is an opportunity for reflection.

With another agonizing down-up-down-up New Orleans Saints season rumbling, stumbling, fumbling toward 00:00, it's time to consider one of this city's great natural resources: Saints fans.

I've been observing them for about three years now, and lemme say this to ya: I'm baffled.

Charmed, but baffled.

Consider: The 2002 season finale was one of the most desultory moments in a long Saints history of desultory moments.

The scoreboard showed that Atlanta had lost. All the Saints needed to make the playoffs was a touchdown.

But no. The final was 10-6, Carolina.

And yet, the first exhibition game of the 2003 season sold out.

They harbor anticipation of success in spite of the endless odds, and look forward to reminding everyone who will listen they always knew their allegiance would be rewarded.
Yep, I\'ve been waiting for that moment for a while. I have a feeling I\'ll still be waiting next spring, and the spring after that, and the spring after that...

Who am I kidding? Of course I believe the Saints can win it all this year. At least this year they have enough talent to give us some hope-- maybe not a lot of hope, but a little is all it takes to keep you hooked.
