Hey gang,

Finally registered with B&G.net after being a devout reader the past 2 years. I just wanted to let you know that this is has been my first stop for Saints info since the day I stumbled onto it. I've always found these forums to be the best source for all things Saints despite the occasional over-opinonated pessimistic views that come from the years of strife associated with being a dedicated fan of a team that has perenially disappointed.

Myself, I moved to New Orleans in 2000 from Houston, TX. I was a lifelong Oiler fan until the Oilers ended their life in 97. I may not know all of the heartache associated with being a Saint's fan, but I do know heartache, nonetheless (e.g. 1/03/93 in Buffalo). When I moved to NO, the Oilers had been gone for 3 years, and my support of the team had been gone even longer when they officially made the agreement but were forced to play out their contract with the Astrodome. It was an easy transition for me without a team and the buzz that was created after the 2000 season. I was officially hooked.

I don't know how much I will post, as I try to stay rational and non-confrontational, but damn if the excitement of the year coming hasn't put a bee in my bonnet the likes of which I've never felt in all my years as a hometown fan. Not only have the Saint's done just about everything I could have asked of them after last year, but I cannot remember the NFL ever being this popular and competitive, and this year looks to be an unbelievably exciting time for all fans of the game of football in general, and hopefully for us Saint's fans as well.

As you may have noticed, I am more likely a member of your fabled Sunshine Bunch, and why not...I believe. You don't have to believe to be a fan, but I certainly don't envy the amount of anxiety and stress you must go through during the course of a season in doubt while secretly hoping to be proven wrong once and for all. With a little luck this can be that season, and I for one can't wait for the ride to start.

I believe. Welcome aboard. You don\'t have to be born a Saint to be a Saint. It\'s all about belief, love, alligator sausage and bad hangovers. Or something like that.

As an official spokeman for the sunshine club. Welcome, welcome, welcome.

Kick off you shoes and enjoy the ride. :P

One word of advice, though. Don\'t accept any drinks from strangers. There\'s some bad brew floating around here.

Sarsipius,

Beware of Gatorman, if he\'s still on this forum. He\'s there in the darkness, ready to pounce on any well-meaning, optimistic fan. Just when you think you\'re days going great, BOOM, the Gatorman will snap you with a \"the glass is half empty\", AB sucks, Has-been post that will dreaden the rest of your day.

You\'ve been warned. GO SAINTS.

Uh-OH sounds like my kind of guy.... I am a pessimist...but only because that way I am never let down...if they suck then I expected it and I don\'t have a stroke...if they are good then I am always pleased to be wrong....lol

You talkin\' smack about Gator? He maybe a staunch member of the pesimist club, but he knows his shiznit - and I think deep down, he\'s a good bloke...

I wouldn\'t worry about him too much, unless you say somethin\' dumb...

BTW welcome new kids. I hope you enjoy our little... er, huge, I guess... forum.

It\'s not about being negative, its about calling it like it is and not how you or I would like it to be. Ya know, the truth, not a bubble blowing/rainbow catching fabrications are what I spread here.
Man, I do love when he comes out from the shadows. You called 08 the x factor - I say it\'s Gator! You can expect to see 08 - but with Gator, you never know when and from where the Blitzkreig will come.

By the way, the Sunshiners fearless leader admitted two of these three already:
AB lost games for us because of his fumbles, Haslett\'s ability to win is in question, and Jake is worthy of being an NFL starter.
They\'ll change their tune about the last one too and then tell us how they predicted it all along!

Cozz - welcome to the WhoTang Clan. Grab a seat, grab some Tang, and start talking trash to Billy. Aaahh, a new pledge class. How I love having pledges.
