I AM SO GEEKED OUT RIGHT NOW

I dunno if this thread needs to be moved-- if so, ok put it where
it belongs!

I just got home from the last day of camp! Oh, MAN THAT
WAS FUN!

AND I GOT TO SHAKE DREW'S HAND! AND HE SIGNED
MY HAT!!!!!!!!!

I'm a grown woman and I'm just doofy with joy right now.
That was 100% worth it.

If you're a fan who has thought about going to camp and never
gone, do yourself a favor and make it a goal to go next year.
Yes, it's hot out there. Yes, it gets uncomfortable.

But today I saw catches made from angles I would never ever
EVER be able to see any other way. I got to meet lots of the players,
and just hang out with lots of other people who love the Saints
and are friendly and casual and helpful to each other. It's a true
Saints community out there, and worth whatever you have to
do to get there.

Wow. I shook Drew's hand. GEEKED GEEKED, AND DOUBLE GEEKED.

I didn't see every single pass he threw-- but from what I did see when
they were playing near me, he missed one, (threw it way above
and off to the side of the receiver,) and had one intercepted.
All the rest after that were spot on, and abso-freakin-lutely gorgeous.

Ok so now that I have CALMED DOWN A LITTLE BIT I can
also report meeting and getting autographs from:

Olin Kreutz: Very cool guy-- said he loved the food here so far. : )
Kolby Hurt: Also very sweet, 'seemed shy but loves the fans.
Zach Strief: God bless 'im! Love that dude! Man he's BIG!!!
Clint Ingram: He was really enjoying talking to the fans, and had
a nice long conversation with the guy next to me, who was teasing
him that Oregon was gonna whip Oklahoma. Clint said, "No way!
Oklahoma's goin' all the way this year!" Fun to hear that energy!
Greg Romeus: Now that is ONE. BIG. MAN. Dude's arms are
as big around as my LEGS are!!!
Patrick Robinson: Just seemed really shy and polite but also really
loving interaction with the fans.
Joique Bell: Way humble. Very polite and fun. Dude is built
like a freakin' steamshovel man. And he was a workhorse
in practice today. Really cool to see.

... and of course there was Drew... so gracious. So patient.
And so amazingly humble.

I'm tellin' you people. If you've never gone to camp, and it
interests you in the least little bit: GO. It's an experience like
no other for a football fan. Especially a Saints fan.

Just know though-- if you take your kids, the coaches DO NOT
CENSOR THEIR LANGUAGE. This is the real deal out there
folks, no messin' around. And it ain't just Gregg Williams, neither!

I sure hope I sleep tonight. *laughing*

That sound very very cool. I think we'd all act like that if all could shake his hand.

Keyword, geek.

:^p

I've had many opportunities to get autographs from many folks.
(sports stars, musicians, etc) but never did.

Never crossed my mind to ask them but I wasn't there as a "fan"
(Backline & production workers, sound engineers never ask for autographs
because it is pretty much an unwritten code of ethics... not to.)

Don't get me wrong... good for you, as a fan.
I bet it was the 37 gazzillionth autograph he's had to sign since the Super Bowl.

Don't you dare ever eBay it.
