New Orleans Saints' Who Dat Nation gets a new prayer for a new season of glory

Last year, at the start of NFL football season, we didn't have a prayer. Our New Orleans Saints were without head coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis. Still, we should have at least had a prayer.

I blame myself. Before the first game I neglected to ask the Rev. R. Tony Ricard to write a new prayer for the 2012 season, like he had every year since 2009. In January, 2010, he also wrote "A playoff prayer for the New Orleans Saints" and predicted we'd beat the Indianapolis Colts to win Super Bow XLIVl. The Saints were perfect, and so was Father Tony.

But last September, Father Tony, the Catholic chaplain for the Saints and a lifelong fan, was starting a new chapter in his life. He had left his pastorate at Our Lady Star of the Sea to work at his alma mater, St. Augustine High School. I knew he was extremely busy, so I gave him a bye. That was a mistake. There are some jobs that must be done.
