You Know You Are A Saints Fan When

ROFL, SaintNik...That was pretty classic. I do, however, notice a few that you left out:

You know you\'re a Saints fan when you\'re given a lifetime supply of paper bags with the eyes and mouth holes already cut out as a gift from your friend who is a Falcons fan.

You know you\'re a Saints fan when you think THIS is the year Aaron Brooks finally leads us to the promised land.

You know you\'re a Saints fan when you leave church services early so you don\'t miss the opening kick-off.

You know you\'re a Saints fan you own a gold truck and have a big black fleur de lis painted on the hood.....(I\'ve actually seen this)

You know you\'re a Saints fan when your significant other has questions about the game she doesn\'t understand, and you tell her to make a list and you\'ll explain after the game.

You know you\'re a Saints fan when you start the game drinking Coors Light in the first quarter, Crown and 7 in the 2nd, and tequilla shots in the 3rd, and just drinking the tequilla and Crown straight from the bottle by the 4th, because you can\'t take it anymore.

You vow at season\'s end to never be a Saints fan again, but you continue to post on blackandgold.net over the off-season. By the next season\'s start, you\'re still a Saints fan.

You know you\'re a Saints fan when...after suffering through the Haslett era of mediocrity, you really start missing Jim Mora.

You know you\'re a Saints fan when you proudly wore your Kyle Turley jersey after the Jets game, but burned it like an Arab does an American flag after he was traded to St. Louis.

You know you\'re a Saints fan when you think that Rick Venturi\'s new plan at the beginning of the season to help the defense might actually work.

You know you\'re a Saints fan when weeks prior to the draft, you tell yourself that this is the year the Saints finally draft an impact player in the first round, and after the draft, you ask yourself \"WHAT IN THE HELL WERE THEY THINKING?\"

You know you\'re a Saints fan when the members of a Saints forum (the best forum that is), all get together for a season of fantasy football, yet all want Deuce with their first pick.

You know you are a Saints fan when you vote multiple times for the River City Relay to win an ESPY.

And finally......

You know you\'re a Saints fan when you see the ingenious of Jeff Foxworty after mocking his You Know You\'re a Redneck if..... routine and think \"That guy knew what he was doing\".

People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.

How about this?

You know you\'re a Saints fan when you tell a Boston Red Sox fan, \" You haven\'t had it NEARLY as bad as us.\"

You know you\'re a Saints fan when you believe a pregame voodoo ritual will end the team\'s \"curse.\"

You know you\'re a Saints fan if you actually believe in a curse.

Best on the list:

\"The Saints are up 21 - 0 at the start of the 3rd Qtr and you tell your friends you can\'t stand these nail biters.\"

Truer words were never spoken. Because it has to be Hakim dropping the ball. It can\'t be easy.

Saints fans will forever keep cardioligists in business.

You know you are a Saints fan when there are only four games remaining in the season and the Saints are 3 games outside of a playoff spot but you have figured out which teams must beat which each week along with the Saints winning their remaining 4 games to make the playoffs.

You know you are a Saints fan when you resist calling that little fag punk that did the Cha-Ching commercial a Cha-Chump!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oh, btw, Cha-Ching, we did this last year. The EXACT list is not on another site, however, many of the ones I listed are. Acknowledged! O.K.! Why don\'t you try using your creative little narrow mind and post something here of interest. Don\'t hurt yourself. Good Luck!

P.S.
I noticed that you are a poster of one. I should have remembered since I delivered it to you last Christmas.

Re: You Know You Are A Saints Fan When

This is an old thread I found here from 2004. Most of us have heard these before, and apparently, its origins
are under dispute. I would ignore the flaming on the last couple of posts-- not really what I wanted to highlight. I dont care where they came from. Im guessing there are numerous authors, and numerous versions, so just like with gumbo, I dont know that anyone could really take full credit.

But I just thought I'd give us some perspective, especially on the ones that tell about how desperate our chances of playoffs were. Some of these are so true they hurt. Most of them just make me laugh.

Among my favorites:
