Pants on the ground couldn't hang with Who 'dat! I love Farve but not the Vikes. We'll take him in Dallas next year. Sad to see him get soooo beat up in that game.

A little bit of irony in the fact that the Saints escape with a win to finally go to the Superbowl and standing in the way of a title is Archie's kid.

A Cajun who died went to hell.
The devil assigned him the usual punishment...put him in the mass pit where the heat was melting others.
The devil came back sometime later surprised to find the Cajun just sitting around, not even misting, much less sweating. "How come you're not so much as sweating here where everyone else is screaming for relief from the heat?
"The Cajun laughed and said, "Man, I was raised in the bayous of Sout Looziana.. Dis ain't nothin' but May in Lafayette to me!"
The devil decided to really put the Cajun through it. He put him in a sealed off cave in the pit with open blazes and four extra furnaces blasting. When he came back, days later, the Cajun was sitting pretty, had barely begun to bead up with sweat. The devil was outraged.
"How is this possible!? You should be melted to a shrieking puddle in these conditions!.
"The Cajun laughed even harder than before. "Hey, man! I done tole you. I was raised in Sout Looziana. You tink dis is heat?! Dis ain't nothin' but August in Jennings!"
So the devil thought, 'Alright, a little reverse ought to do the trick.' He put the Cajun into a corner of hell where no heat ever reached. It was freezing and to add to the Cajun's misery, he added massive icebergs and blasting frozen air. When he returned, the Cajun was shivering, ice hung from every part of him but he was grinning like it was Christmas.
Exasperated, the devil asked "HOW!? How is it possible?! You're impervious to heat and here you sit in conditions you can't be used to...freezing cold and yet you're happier than if you were in heaven.. WHY?!
"The Cajun kept grinning and asked, "Dis mean de Saints won da Super Bowl?"

601, I'm from Minnesota. On Monday morning, I felt like everything was OK and normal with the world when my Vikes choked in the clutch on Sunday. It gave me a sense of peace and security.. like everything was the way it's always been, and the way it should be. The NFC championship game is our Super Bowl and our mausoleum. We're the Vikings; if Favre woulda got us down to the 20 yard line, I'm nearly positive that our "money" kicker, Longwell, would've missed a chip shot anyway. I think it's great that Nawlens is in there; they've been through alot and they play good fundamental football (and they got some nasty bastards on that team). I disagree with you though on Favre's well-being. I think they kicked the crap outa him.

You can't fumble the football in the red zone. That ain't Favre's fault. Too many people are putting that on him. I'm hoping he gives it up though. I'm tired of hearing about him.

I'm happy the Saints are going on and I hope they win it all! They had a great season. Always one of my favorite teams.

Outlook for the Atlantic, Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico…


Hurricane Whodat is predicted to make landfall on the Florida coast in the vicinity of Miami on 7 Feb 2010 at approximately 2200Z (5:00 PM EST). This extremely powerful hurricane is expected to produce damaging Shockey waves and a Category 5 Brees. Reports from shipping indicate that this unstoppable storm has blown a huge flock of Cardinals all the way to Arizona, and that it has sunk a replica Viking longboat, the Brettigfǻvren. Livestock, in
particular young horses or colts, will be in severe danger of being decimated. Predictive damage estimates are unavailable at this time, but they are expected to be significant.

All interests in and near the Miami area are advised to prepare for a storm surge of catastrophic proportions as Hurricane Whodat begins to arrive in approximately 10 days.


Next advisory 07 Feb 2010 at 0300Z (10:00 PM EST).

Dear Miami,





The Saints are coming. And so are we, their loyal, long-suffering and

slightly discombobulated Super Bowl-bound fans.



While there's still time to prepare -- although a few hard-core Who Dats

will begin trickling in Monday, most of us won't arrive until Thursday or

Friday -- we thought we'd give you a heads-up about what you should

expect.



First things first: You need more beer.



Yeah, we know. You ordered extra. You think you have more than any group

of humans could possibly consume in one week. Trust us. You don't.



New Orleans was a drinking town long before the Saints drove us to drink.

But it turns out beer tastes better when you're winning. (Who knew?) So

let's just say we're thirsty for more than a championship; adjust your

stockpiles accordingly.



And look. When we ask you for a go-cup, be nice to us. We don't even know

what "open container law" means. Is that anything like "last call"?



It's Carnival season in New Orleans (that's Mardi Gras to you), and we'll

be taking the celebration on the road. So don't be startled if you walk

past us and we throw stuff at you; that's just our way of saying hello.



Oh, and sorry in advance about those beads we leave dangling from your

palm trees. We just can't help ourselves.





_____________________________________________





February is also crawfish season, and you can be sure that more than one

enterprising tailgater will figure out a way to transport a couple sacks

of live mudbugs and a boiling pot to Miami.



When the dude in the 'Who Dat' T-shirt asks if you want to suck da head

and pinch da tail, resist the urge to punch him. He's not propositioning

you. He's inviting you to dinner.



And if you see a big Cajun guy who looks exactly like an old Saints

quarterback walking around town in a dress ... don't ask. It's a long

story.



We know that crowd control is a major concern for any Super Bowl host

city. Our advice? Put away the riot gear.



Reason No. 1: Indianapolis is going to lose, and their fans are way too

dull to start a riot.



Reason No. 2: New Orleans showed the world on Sunday that we know how to

throw a victory party. We don't burn cars. We dance on them.



Reason No. 3: Even if we did lose, which we won't, leaving the stadium

would be like leaving a funeral, and our typical response to that is to

have a parade.



Speaking of which: If you happen to see a brass band roll by, followed by

a line of folks waving their handkerchiefs, you're not supposed to just

stand there and watch. As our own Irma Thomas would say, get your

backfield in motion.



And hey, Mister DJ! Yes, we know you've already played that stupid Ying

Yang Twins song 10 times tonight, but indulge us just one more time.



To us, "Halftime (Stand Up and Get Crunk)" isn't just a song; it's 576

points of good memories. It's the sound of a Drew Brees touchdown pass to

Devery Henderson, a Pierre Thomas dive for first down on 4th-and-1, a

Garrett Hartley field goal sailing through the uprights in overtime.



It's what a championship sounds like. You may get sick of hearing it. We

won't. Encore, dammit.



Inside Sun Life Stadium, you may find your ears ringing more than usual.

We're louder than other fans. Seven thousand of ours sound like 70,000 of

theirs..



Don't believe us? Ask the 12th man in the Vikings huddle.



Some people think it's just the Dome that heightens our volume. But you're

about to discover a little secret: We can scream loud enough to make your

head explode, indoors or out.



It's not the roof. It's the heart.



Well, OK, and the beer.





Don't be surprised if there are more Saints fans outside the stadium than

inside. A lot of us are coming just to say we were part of history, even

if we can't witness it up close. The Saints are family to us, and you know

how it is with family: We want to be there for them, whether they really

need us or not. Because we know our presence will mean something to them,

whether they can see us or not.



Come to think of it, seeing as how you're taking us in for the week, we

pretty much regard you as family, too. So we're warning you now: If you're

within hugging distance, you're fair game.



Hugging strangers is a proud Who Dat tradition, right up there with crying

when we win.



Most sports fans cry when their teams lose. Not us. We've been losing

gracefully and with good humor for 43 years. Tragedy and disappointment

don't faze us. It's success that makes us go to pieces.



Hurricane Katrina? We got that under control. The Saints in the Super

Bowl? SOMEBODY CALL A PARAMEDIC!!!



So anyway, don't let the tears of joy freak you out. We're just ...

disoriented.



OK. Let's review:



Order more beer. Throw me something, mister. Suck da heads. Wear da dress.

Stand up. Get crunk. Hug it out. Protect your eardrums. Pass the Kleenex.

Hoist the trophy.



See you at the victory party.

Influential print sources suggest that
The fix is on
According to team sources, formal overtures to crown a Super Bowl victor through peaceful negotiation began almost immediately after Saints kicker Garrett Hartley connected on a game-winning field goal against the Vikings last Sunday.

Saints general manager Mickey Loomis reportedly sent one of the team's high-level ambassadors, Deuce McAllister, to Indianapolis to see if the Colts would agree to a 42-38 outcome wherein the Saints would be named Super Bowl champions. Sources confirmed Colts general manager Chris Polian told McAllister that, while he was open to diplomacy and would do anything to avoid sending his players into harm's way, his organization would prefer a final result that favors the Colts 27-17.

"Absolutely no one wants to see these teams forced to take the field and play 60 minutes of brutal football against each another," Colts owner Jim Irsay said. "But the Saints have to understand that if they aren't willing to meet us half way on some our demands, specifically those that are outcome-related, we are fully committed to using all our offensive firepower to achieve our goals."
