Re: Fan Or Fanatic?

I'm a recovering fanatic.

I used to eat, drink, and breathe everything Saints and NFL related but life after marriage and mortgage got crazy and my focus has been on many other things.

You don't survive the A. Manning, K. Stabler and Richard Todd era's as a fanatic, that would be Lunacy....One would have to be a true fan, or just crazy....I fall into the crazy, FAN side but not fanatic, as I have learned over the years...success can be fleeting.

Re: Fan Or Fanatic?

Does getting a fleur de lis tattoo make me a fanatic?

So long as it's not in the small of your back, you can still check the fan box...

In another lifetime, worked at hospital in NoLa; two of the traveler nurses dated Saints players and they got matching Saints Tramp Stamps done...

At this point, fan. I perhaps was fanatic at one time, but am getting too old for the stress.

Used to be a fanatic. More of a fan now. Life, family and the invasion of politics into sports have pushed down the importance of Saints football and other sports for me.

Re: Fan Or Fanatic?

Probably a fan. I'm usually not unbearable after a loss, even a bad one. But I have a sentimental streak about sports and tend to get emotionally invested at times. I mean, tonight I am getting almost choked up wondering if I just watched Federer's last Wimbledon, with all of the memories of the last 20 years just rushing back into my head. 😢 Paralells with Brees' last game?

I am a full blown fanatic! I used to be a football fanatic but as you mentioned the invasion of politics shot that to hell. I don't watch football anymore but I wouldn't miss a moment of of a Saints game to go outside and get paid. I love the Saints but hate what Godhell has done to the game.

I'm a fanatical Who Dat for life and my house is visible from outer space. Just look for the fleur de lis.
