Ah, well, it was a good run
The New Orleans Saints lost the NFC Title game to Da Bears today. I was really hoping they'd go all the way and win the Super Bowl this year, but alas, 'twas not to be. Nonetheless, what Coach Payton did in his first year with the team was amazing, both in football terms and in what it did for the city's morale. Yes, a Superbowl win, or even just a Superbowl berth, would have been an even bigger shot in the arm for New Orleans, but the return to the Superdome and the miracle run to the title game were incredibley special all on their own. Thank you, Sean, Reggie, Drew, and all the others! What a gift you gave!
