Who Dat? Saints Dat!

I am really not a football fan, but when my home state team, the New Orleans Saints, made it to the playoffs, and then to the Superbowl, I couldn't help but become interested. I was excited and nervous all day yesterday and when game time was upon us, I sat transfixed in front of the television for over 3 hours. I watched those Saints bring home a never-before-held victory, and a mighty impressive victory it was. I beamed with pride for the team, the city of New Orleans and the state of Louisiana. After all the devastation and loss in the past, they needed this....we, as a country, needed this.

All we had to do was Believe!

Congratulations on the win yesterday. I read your blog regularly, but I've not become comfortable until just recently of replying to blogs. I do enjoy your writings and I LOVE the pictures of the wild cats you had posted. A most handsome group they are.
Take care, Cotton Lady from west Texas
