Now, I’ll tell you that I’m not usually a football fan. I grew up in a Cowboys family there in East Texas. I just never cared. But, something was different about the Saints. We moved here about 18 months ago and I liked the way they played together, the way they cared for the city, and the way the city rallied around them. I decided then to throw my lot in with the Saints. I own my first NFL shirt (proudly) and I even hunted all over the city to find one for Bean. (Found one! Today! She’s thrilled! She points at it and says “Go Saints!”) Peanut has a Saints cheerleading outfit. We’re all black and gold over here.
And now, with a 40 yard field goal, we’re headed to the Super Bowl!
