When the Saints Come Marching In

So, if you didn't know, there was a little football game last night down the river. Could you NOT know? LOL I was pretty shocked. The Saints actually looked like a real live professional football team. However, conspiracy theories are abounding that the game was rigged so the Saints would win. And I admit, before the game started, I asked James if he though the Falcons would throw the game. He said no way. Then at that first blocked punt, I asked him if he still thought that. I really kind of thought it was going on. I mean really, can you imagine what a crushing blow it would have been for the Saints to lose that game? On the other hand, I have a deep, deep respect and adoration for Warrick Dunn and I can't imagine him being compliant with any sort of cheating or game throwing, but you know I'm biased there. I do agree though that Atlanta was probably just completely unprepared for the level of emotion in the stadium. I don't know. I guess I could go either way on it. I really do want to the Saints to do well, I'd love for them to actually be in the playoffs. How great would that be? And as much as I hate hate hate USC (ha ha!) I thank them for Reggie Bush.

(Ha ha, this guy just called in and said that Bill Clinton put in the call for the Saints to win, so that people would talk about the Saints and not his meltdown on Fox)

Oh, and the other thing I couldn't stop thinking about during the game was Jim Mora's unnaturally smooth skin. He almost didn't look real.

I watched the 1st quarter of that game last night and its hard to think that the game wasn't fixed, but I don't think the Falcons would do that. I think that the emotion threw them off as well. If I had to rot for any other team other than the Pats, I think I would root for the Saints...
