WOW!! There were many "first's" this season for the New Orleans Saints. First time in franchise history this team started their season by going 13-0. First time winning the NFC Championship game, sending them to their first Super Bowl appearance. But the biggest first out of all… WINNING Super Bowl 44!!
I’ve been a Saints fan since I can remember, right around 6 or 7. I can’t actually remember if my Uncle Steve was stationed in Louisiana or if he was out visiting my mom’s side of the family there, but when he came back he brought me a New Orleans Saints shirt. Ever since then they have been the team I’ve cheered for.
I’ve stuck by them through the days when they were called the “Aints” and when fans wore brown paper bags over their heads because they were ashamed of them. As a child I would cut out newspaper articles of any game they won and post it on my tack board next to my bed. I’ve been a fan before, during, and after Hurricane Katrina. I am NOT a front runner and I did NOT jump on the bandwagon this season. I AM a true and loyal “Who Dat” fan!
Who Dat Nation has risen. New Orleans Saints are no longer the “Aint’s”. They are Super Bowl Champions!! I now can cross this off of my “Things I Need to See Before I Die” list. Who dat? Who dat? Who dat say dey gonna beat dem Saints?
