New Orleans Saints Win Super Bowl 44

I think Hell musta froze over
The Saints must have won the Super Bowl.
The Season of Destiny
HAPPY LOMBARDI GRAS
OWN THE MOMENT
WE HAVE STOLEN THE MOMENTUM
WHO DAT WON DAT SUPER BOWL
A quitter never wins, a winner never quits. The New Orleans Saints finish strong beating Peyton Manningís Indianapolis Colts 31-17 in Super Bowl 44 on February 7, 2010 in the year of our Lord. This was a season of irony and as Saints quarterback Drew Brees predicted, the season of Destiny. The Saints were born as an NFL expansion team 44 years before Super Bowl 44. Archie Manning was born in Drew Mississippi and was the Saints quarterback for 10 seasons. Archieís Saints had 9 losing seasons, even though in 1972 Archie led the National Football Conference in passing yardage. After Archieís quarterback career he became the WWL radio color announcer for the Saints. Archie still makes his home in New Orleans. Peyton was born, raised, and played high school football in New Orleans and is still a devoted Saints fan. Drew Brees did what Archie tried so hard to do, but couldnít. Drew took the Saints to victory to become the Super Bowl Champions. Isn't it ironic that Drew played for Purdue University, 63 miles from Indiana Colts RCA Dome Stadium. The turning point in this exciting Super Bowl game was Coach Sean Payton's half-time surprise attack, the onside kick to open the third quarter. This was the first time any team ever attempted the onside kick in Super Bowl history other than in the fourth quarter. Growing up in New Orleans with the Saint's Quarterback as a father, Payton Manning always used to dream of throwing the winning touchdown for the Saints, and he did!! He finally realized that dream on Super Bowl Sunday 2010. WHO DAT WHO DAT GONNA BEAT DEM SAINTS!!!
Along the road during this victorious season of Destiny, the Saints defeated Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings in overtime 31-28 to win the NFC championship title. This is also ironic because Brett was born, raised, and played high school football in the moonshine capitol of the world Kiln Mississippi, 66 miles from the New Orleans Central Business District. Brett is still a devoted Saints fan. Brett, Drew, and the Manning family all contributed to rebuilding the devastated city of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina.
The Saintís story is a story of inspiration for the city of New Orleans, The Gulf Coast, and the Who Dat Nation and across the nation and the world. This is a story of inspiration for all of us who are struggling with day to day crises. If you try, you will succeed. Never give up, never quit. The Saints ainít the Aints no more. This ainít my daddyís Saints team. Throughout all of these years, we remained faithful, although at times it was difficult. The Saints always seemed to snatch defeat out of the arms of victory at the last minute. Daddy would have loved this season. I drove my Chevy to the Levy but the Levy was gone. I drove to the Gardens of Memory cemetery and put fresh flowers, an American flag, an LSU flag, and a Saints flag on his resting place. I told daddy about the victory, as if he did not already know. After all the Cowboys maybe Americaís team but the Saints are Jesusí team.
Uncle Buck and my family were in that number when the Who Dat Nation 800 thousand strong stood packed elbow to elbow in 20 degree weather on that windy cold night February 9, 2010 as the World Champion Saints marched and paraded from the Super Dome to the French Quarter in the Lombardi Gras Who Dat Super Bowl Parade. It took us 3 and a half hours to drive from Hammond Louisiana to Tulane University on Canal Street. Normally you can make this drive in an hour and a half. I had to be the big fat lineman blocking my way through the dense crowd from Tulane to Rampart. We got to within 20 feet of the floats with the Saints players, but we could hardly see them because 20,000 people were between us and the floats. I was hoping to shake their hands but, well at least we were there in that number. Would not have missed it for the world. The drive back to our hotel in Hammond was a 3 hour misery. Interstate 10 was down to one westbound lane because of construction and traffic was dead still across Lake Pontchartrain from Loyola Street to LaPlace Louisiana. The GPS said we were going zero miles per hour. Can you imagine being dead still stuck in bumper to bumper traffic over a 12 mile long bridge for 3 hours. I only knew one thing. I had to P like a race horse.
A pilot was stuck in the traffic and was 3 hours late for his flight to Los Angeles with a planeload of Who Dat Nation fans who flew in for the celebration. There were 30,000 people of the Who Dat Nation lined up along the route from Louis Armstrong Air Port to the Super Dome to cheer on the World Champion Saints arriving home in the wee hours of the morning after the game. I heard that 11 people greeted the Colts in Indianapolis. At one point in the NFC Playoff Game, the Vikings had more people in the huddle. The Super Bowl parade route was announced days before the Super Bowl Game. I was planning on going win, loose, or draw. The Who Dat Nation would have been there as well.
Oh when the Saints Go Marching in. This will be the night we drank that Dixie Down.
Even Moses and Elvis are dancing in the street for the Saints Who DAT Nation.
