Re: Old Schoolers. Im Still Mad about this Game.

Im gonna do this sometimes, guys... bring up some old blasts from the past, because I think our history is part of what makes us who we are... The fact the we kept loving a team that not only wasnt good, but found creative, and even horrible ways to lose. And we'd march right back up into our seats, and we raised holy hell. The best fans in Sports. period.
--this is what made me a Saints fan.

And when we win now, I think of you guys who sat in Tulane Stadium, who believed Archie was taking us There, Who sat thru the Bag years. This win's for You.

This is a Love I fear is lost on younger fans that did not go through it all.

The art of looking for anything and I mean anything to hang your hat on as a step in the right direction year after year after year was a saints fan true skill back then. Old time saints fans can find a silver liner somewhere in a season loaded with turds. But do not try to wrap those turds and sell them to use either. They are still a turd no matter how pretty the wrapping is.

I remember years when the national media was actually amazed at how educated saints fans were to the finer points of the game. Heck ESPN did a special on the knowledge saints fans had in regards to special teams and how best to use it. Even our women knew more than than the reporter. Chris Berman and the crew at the desk were amazed and educated by saints fans. Never sell our saints woman short. It was all we had for 3 or 4 years. We all became very well versed in all phases of the game at the pro level by the time Payton came to town,

So do not try to to pull the wool over our eyes and then force kool aid down us. we know better

You got that right, the wife gets just as loud as me during home games. Her favorite player was Lance Moore

What would you learn from repeating the Saints history?
Around 110 complete 24 hour days of your life was completely wasted.

Those who live in the past don't understand the meaning of "Now" There is no past ,there is no future, only Now!

Re: Old Schoolers. Im Still Mad about this Game.

Hagan, I noticed that our women are more knowlegeable than a lot of men who root for other teams.

fun stuff. I enjoy history. Even reliving some of the bad history. Statues belong in the Circle.

I'll be in the Dome this fall. So Im perfectly relevant to the present.

Enjoy my thread.

It stays. : )
