Times have changed

Thinking back when i lived in Crowley back in the late 70s thru the 80s ..there was no support in that area for the team...I remember getting so mad when people would say "Saints Suck"...Even when Hebert came along people still didnt support the team..i have friends that up until recently said we were the same old Saints..Now you cant beat them off the bandwagon..Its fun to tell them "Where were you in 1980"...Oh well jump on..lets all enjoy this..

Re: Times have changed


The Times They Are A-Changin'
Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'.
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'.
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin'.
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'.

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin'.
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

Re: Times have changed

I've lived in South Dakota most of my life, and I was 'friends' with a lot of Packers, Vikings and Broncs fan. I remember them asking me every year who I was gonna root for to win the Super Bowl that year.

My answer: "The Saints. Like I do every year"

They would laugh at me, and say things like, "Why don't you root for a real team? or "Yeah right, you'll be lucky if they finish 4-12 this year."

Every year, I rooted for my Saints, and when their teams went to the playoffs, and mine went home for the season, I would continually get ripped on. "See what happens when you pick a team that sucks! Ha ha!"

As of this year, I noticed these same people (yes, I still talk to them) rooting for the Saints, posting Who Dat (I about ripped one of them a new bumhole for that) and saying things like, "Oh I've liked the Saints the whole time. I just like the [insert other team name here] better."

But one thing I do notice, when the issue of bandwagoners comes up, they all defend me saying, "Yeah, she's the only legit Saints fan I know."

Kinda nice...but still. Get off our wagon, haters. There's no love for you

And don't criticize
What you can't understand
The song explains the phenomenon.

They've never been a part of this much meauxjeaux and don't understand.

WHO DAT!

Re: Times have changed

Yeah unfortunately we all have had to root for other teams when the Playoffs and The SuperBowl have come around. Not this year thanks to Dr. Brees and company we are going to the big dance.

Re: Times have changed

I want to go to Natchitoches, which is where Hebert went to college, btw, and see some black and gold being worn. I'm looking forward to going to Cane River Mall, and seeing some Saints stuff for sale. I want to go to places like Many, Zwolle, or Pleasant Hill, and get Who Dat'ed.
I am seriously thinking of going to Mardi Gras in Mamou. I wonder if anyone knows where these places are?

Re: Times have changed

My mom says there are now three classifications of Saints fans.

Who Dats!!!!....... have been there since birth.

New Dats........... Just got here in the past 20 years.

Re-Dats.............Were here once or twice, then left to root for the cowboys, packers, patriots or Jake Delhomme and now have come back.

Re: Times have changed

Times are changing, but there is nothing new under the sun. The same things that draw you will drive you. When all the hooplah has died down, and the pendulum has swung back to a rebuilding cycle, we will be back to having plenty of elbow room at the Black&Gold table. But for now, its kind of nice to be living Mardi Gras mode everyday.

I bet you had to look that up to make sure you were spelling it right...and pronouncing it is a whole different story. I grew up next door where we pronounced most syllables the way they were spelled...maybe with a little twang...but this one, if I'm correct, is pronounced something like...
