I’m not sure why I never liked football. Could be that I had to sit in front of so many games while my parents hogged the tv. Could be that our team, the Saints never won.
I watched today though. And I’m going to watch the next Saints playoff game. I won’t believe my eyes if they get to the Superbowl. I want to see something I’ve never seen before. Something everybody has always said will never ever happen. The Saints winning the Superbowl. There is no better time for this beaten city to get their win.
Today my kids saw two things they never thought they’d see. Me watching football and yelling “Go Bush.” Not that Bush, are you crazy? The guy with “Bush” on his jersey running just like a fiddler crab.
