So Proud of the New Orleans Saints
I wasn't able to stay awake late enough to see the entire game last night, but my bleary-eyed husband tells me that the New Orleans Saints remain undefeated. He also admits in a respectful tone that the Saints were tough and played an exceptional game against the Patriots. I am so proud.
My interest in the Saints began in the 1990's, when I was living in Buffalo. I was supposed to be a Bills fan, but after a number of failed Super Bowl attempts, I had to step up and confess my real allegiance: The New Orleans Saints. Admittedly, they were not much of a team back then.
Fast forward to 2009. Now I live in Massachusetts and am supposed to be a Patriots fan. The Patriots are a superb team, no argument there. But for me, they are in the second line, behind New Orleans. It is so satisfying to see this underdog of a team, who has had so little respect in the past decade, rise to the top. I'll be facing a lot of heat because of this, but I stand firm. I am rooting for the Saints.
Go New Orleans!
