Never Too Early To Talk Saints Football

As a devoted New Orleans Saints fan, I've endured many dismal seasons that followed a very successful one. I am trying not to go into this next season with overconfidence. Sure, it's interesting that predictions have been made pitting the Saints and the New England Patriots against each other in the Super Bowl. But it's too early to buy into all of that preseason hype. Last year at this time, many national reporters picked the Saints to be dead last in our division and to win maybe 5-6 games. We were a big surprise to our division and to the league. So I am trying to remain calm and not get overly excited but it's hard to not dream of a repeat of last season when we have so many weapons on offense. If they can all stay healthy, especially Drew Brees, it just might be another great season for my beloved team.

they're not really talking football around here yet, but yesterday I had lunch at the place where I'll be watching a few games... the Shoal Creek Saloon first caught my eye back in November 05 when The Beau and I had an evacuation vacation, coming down from Longview for a few days here in Austin to get away from everything, and we drove down Lamar and if I had been driving I would have wrecked the car when I saw the giant Saints helmet on top of the porch... yes, that is an old VW bug, repurposed. the owner/chef is a big Saints fan from Baton Rouge and he's really nice, I met him yesterday, and there's a framed jersey from Deuce and lots of other cool Saints paraphenalia so I can't wait for the first Sunday of the season...

Juannie took me to see the giant Saints helmet on my first and only visit to Austin. He didn't warn me so I was pleasantly stunned to see it as it loomed in the distance. We never made it in there because it was a short trip but I plan to go the next time we're there-hopefully in August!

oh yes. there are many places I'd love to take y'all, but we MUST go there. and have Juannie and The Beau take our picture in front of the helmet! :-)

Fun fun! I need to start planning our trip. If I remember correctly, Juannie said it's the last weekend in August. It would be a much better way to end the month of August than some other alternatives. Plus if it the dates work out we could watch a Saints preseason game together at Shoal Creek Saloon.

how great would THAT be?!? if I can unpack my Saints altar by then, I'll have Saints beads for us to wear!

And we can wear our jerseys and potentially embarrass the heck out of Juannie and The Beau with our fanatical behavior during a preseason game! ;-)
