Asinine topic? How about this, imagine before all this technology no one had something others didnt. Iphones, Ipods, Ipads some people still can't afford this. And there are judgemental people and shallow people out there today. People still after 20 years old acting like high school. Of course the saints sb is one of the greatest sports moments in my life. But I guess I'm a small town at heart guy stuck in the big city. And this isnt supposed to mean that I regret saints football. I would never say that. I would not be breaking my back trying to combat so many naysayers on that other board defending the team if I regreted being a saints fan. It just means living in times where family and friendships were easier.

Everyone knows Ancient Rome was the place to be for sports.
Sea Battles,Gladiators,animal displays and even theatrical displays at the Flavian Amphitheater.While just round the corner you could watch chariot racing at the Circus Maximus.

Forget you lee, its ALWAYS 6th centery Rome this and 6th centery Rome that! When will you ever get of this Flavian Amphitheatre and comparing emperor Vespasian to Sean Payton kick. Geez!!!
..and while you watch your games, forgeting who is winning, drinking your vitamin rich lead filled 6 pack, and eating your 10,000 calzone.

Ill be enjoying a win while the opposing team is slaughtered before me, with one of my many native wives reading the events of the week to me on my extremely accuarate and colorful calender. Mayan all the way babe!


...sorry its very slow in the smack forum

Re: As a saints fan are you proud to live in this generation?

Interesting stance.

As a Saints Fan? - I am really pleased to have had the opportunity to enjoy the Saints. That is the bad, bad, bad, mediocre, bad, not bad, .. and then stunningly the SB that I never ever expected and what has occurred since.
I am comforted very much by multiple experiences of being a Saints fan - this board, walking and talking with other Saints fans. There is an affinity that if I have to explain it to you then you are not ready to understand.

This generation? - I absorb information. So I cannot think of a better gone-by age where I could absorb as much information as I can now. Do I like everything about this age? No. But so far I know, there is no age when I would have liked everything. One all-time example is that there is always a proportion of mankind fighting others.

Technology & relationships - Of course technology makes a difference, be it medicine, "toys" or communication, or.... The fact is that some have and some don't. Well it was always thus. I cannot complain about the relationships I have or I have had. So I will not.

Our Saints, Our City, Our Soul
Saints are individuals of exceptional holiness

Re: As a saints fan are you proud to live in this generation?

From a Saint fan standpoint this is the time, no question. From a technology standpoint, in retrospect, it was nice to not be so readily available ALL THE TIME. From a parntal standpoint, having access to your children so readily far outweighs the negatives. So this generation is where to be for me.

Now you know those guys were giving 100% on the field, and being a free agent was terrifying
Hahaha, that was great. Anyway, I've been a Saints fan since they were created. It was tough to wait until they actually played their first game. It was an exciting time. I worked the games as security and a ticket taker at Tulane Stadium even though I was actually under aged. I was in the stands and watched Guilliam (sp) run the first kick off back for a TD. I was in the stands and watched Dempsey kick the record setting field goal. Like I said, great times. We grew up in the time of great cars, the beginning of rock and roll and had to fight for our music. We watched some terrible football back then. It was like a badge of honor being a Saints fan. We had big get togethers with boiled crawfish, raw and fried oysters, muffalatas, boiled shrimp lots of family and friends and that was before tailgating, LOL. I went to Arabi Elementary on Friscoville St.. We didn't have air conditioning. Not in the schools, not even in high school at Chalmette, not in our homes and not in our cars. There were wood floors in that grammar school that were oiled and if you were bad the teacher would make you kneel down and hold a thick dictionary out in front of you for the whole class. Try getting away with that one now a days. You would go home with oil stains on the knees of your pants and get a whippin for not only being bad in school, but for ruining your pants. Anyway, you don't want to hear about all that stuff, but they were indeed great times. People from younger generations were probably hungry for a winning team, but can you imagine how people from my generation felt? People from the first generation of Saints fans? Heady stuff man. People around us died without even seeing a winning season, let alone a playoff game, or a Super Bowl??? You kidding me?? Everywhere you went, people used to hack on us for being Saints fans. I used to tell people to go ahead and give it their best shot because I'd heard everything anybody could come up with. When we started winning over these last 6 years, I can't tell you how sweet it was, and is. Winning that Super Bowl was just incredible. I didn't know exactly how to take it. I'd lost my dad, my grandfather, my grandmother and my best friend and they didn't even get to see so much as a winning season, so it was and still is a very strange feeling and one that I feel that I need to witness at least once more to actually believe if you get what I'm saying but in some respects, way, way in the back there, you miss some of what you had back in those old losing days. Sorry for the long post.
