WHO DAT?!!!!! BLACK AND GOLD SUPERBOWL!!!!
The year is 2010, and after 42 seasons the NEW ORLEANS SAINTS ARE GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL!!!! I'm 23 years old and growing up, I along with everyone else I've ever known thought that hell itself would have to freeze over before we witnessed the Saints going to the Superbowl. Well, I'd say hell is pretty chilly right about now. The Saints are NFC Champions for the first time after beating the Minnesota Vikings led by BRETT FAVRE!!! in overtime 31-28. This game was so great!!! It was also so frustrating with the penalties and missed opportunities for the Saints...But in the end, Garret Hartley (a 23 year old!) kicked the game winning 40 yard field goal. And man, he kicked the life out of that football putting it right down the middle and through the uprights. The city of New Orleans is still going nuts and probably won't stop until well after Mardi Gras, which is 2 weeks away. Now, the Saints play Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts in two Sundays, Feb. 7th, for Superbowl 44. And with all the excitement in the atmosphere around this city and football team, I can't even imagine what it'd be like if we actually win the Superbowl!....man, there's a statement I still can't believe I was able to say. WHO DAT BABY!!! BLACK AND GOLD SUPERBOWL!!!! THIS DAY IS AMAZING.
