Oh When The Saints...
So ends another mediocre football season.
Super Bowl XLIV ended with the 'WHO DAT Nation' coming back to beat the Colts in rather convincing fashion 31-17. A rocky start for the Black and Gold, as the first quarter ended with them trailing 10-0. But Brees and Co. found a groove and starting chipping away. I actually started to get excited around the end of the third quarter, because I thought this game was going to be a nail-biter. Right around the Colts' last promising drive, I had a feeling someone was going to screw up. I thought the O-Line was going to break down and Peyton Manning would give up the game-ending fumble. But I was close, and instead he threw that Pick-Six and that sealed the deal.
I still have to give it to the Saints. Hell of a season, hell of a finish. If anybody wants to take a road trip down to New Orleans anytime before September, I heard there are some crazy parties going on there.
