Saints Rejoice

Mardis Gras Starts 9 Days Early

No matter who you were pulling for this was a riveting Super Bowl from kickoff to confetti. There were only a few penalty flags thrown and plenty of play calls that took major cojones. Sean Payton’s decision to go for it at 4th and 1 at the end of the 2nd quarter may not have worked out but then he was redeemed soon after throwing down the gauntlet to open the second half with an onside kick which the Saints recovered, led to a score, and New Orleans taking the lead.

Meant to Be
In the post game celebration Drew Brees commented that it was “all meant to be" and felt like “destiny." Well the stars were certainly aligned for black and gold glory. It was Super Bowl 44, the Saints 44th season in the NFL (came into the league in 1966), the game took place 44 days after Christmas, the 44th President of the U.S.A picked the Saints to win, and Saints owner Tom Benson graduated from St. Aloysius high school in 1944. Plus many outlets reported that Saints beat the Vikings to get to the Super Bowl 4 minutes and 44 seconds into the overtime frame. Ok, the official stopwatch click was 4:45 into OT but don’t be a stickler.

Meanwhile in Leaf Nation Jiggy has been keeping his glove hand strong and his game face on. Jean-Sebastien Giguere is off to a sweltering start since leaving the quacks and donning Maple Leaf blue. Giguere’s already earned himself a place in the team record books becoming the first keeper in Leaf history to begin their tenure with the team with back-to-back shutouts. In his debut with the club he let nothing slip pass the goal line in a 3-0 victory against New Jersey and then followed that up by keeping the red hot Senators off the scoresheet in a 5-0 beat down which ended Ottawa’s 11 game win streak.
