Fans poured into the Dome, me included!! So exciting to be at the first playoff game the team had ever been to! Shame the team didn’t come! YIKES, sad loss…love them anyway, maybe next year! But wait, something awful happened….
Katrina…sigh…so sad to see what this storm did to our city. Not just storm wise, it has changed the dynamics of the town…but I digress, this is about FOOTBALL!! Look at our teams home! Smack at the end of August at that…season starting…we can’t not have football! So look, a new head coach (personally I think they hired him for the ladies of the city….isn’t he handsome?!)
Another cutie pie…oh football..sorry…THE BEST quarterback ever! The BEST TEAM LEADER…EVER!! Finally we had a team to be proud of!! By then we needed some cheering up and boy did these guys take us to a new level! We were so happy….and now looked like this…
I have tears in my eyes with pride as I type this. I can’t even begin to put into words what this trophy stood for in our city! Fireworks, cheers, screaming, you name it! That was just on our street!! Fans migrated in minutes from all over the area to the French Quarter to show the love and celebrate and soon the streets looked like this:
Momma always taught me if I didn’t have anything nice to say, I shouldn’t say anything at all….Just this..if Katrina, category 5 storm didn’t stop us. Do you really think some dork who wants to make the NFL flag football gonna stop us!? HECK NO! This describes him:
We may not have taken the trophy yet…but we have taken everything you have thrown at us. We are overcomers of adversity like no other. Our fans are diehards who don’t give up even if it means wearing bags on our heads. One thing is for sure, we will…
Happy Birthday to the Black and Gold!!! NOLA LOVES YOU GUYS!!! Now go show the grinch that Bounty is just to wipe his tears as he hands Payton the gold!!
