Our Heroes … Believe DAT!!!

We Are The Champions
The Saints Revolution!
Full of Win!

Last night I cheered until my throat was raw.

The New Orleans Saints have won the Super Bowl!!

I just want to keep saying that.

The New Orleans Saints have won the Super Bowl!!!!

A friend reported from home that the French Quarter was “one big screaming beery orgasm.” Yeah you rite!

“It meant so much more than football,” said Bruce Nolan in the Times-Picayune.

It meant victory for a recovering city that in some places still bears the dirty water lines of Hurricane Katrina. Victory for people who lived two years in trailers. Victory for new post-Katrina friends who fell in love with New Orleans rebuilding it. Victory for New Orleanians cheering in exile from Alaska to Miami. Victory on Facebook and on Twitter. Victory on Bourbon Street, on Caffin Avenue, in Chalmette, in Lakeview and St. Tammany.

Not only that, Mitch Landrieu won the New Orleans mayoral election on Saturday, in a landslide of 66%. The countdown begins to May 31, whereafter C. Ray Asshat is exiled to the Land of Nod forever.

Not only that, it’s the last full week of Carnival, and Mardi Gras is in nine days.

This will be a very good nine days.

😀

    That interception was one of the most thrilling things I’ve ever seen. And I don’t watch football. 🙂

    Hey! A Looka! post on my RSS reader that isn’t a retread!

    Seriously, congrats Nawlins. It was more than time. Now get back out there and drink some more. Drink until Nagin makes sense.

    (And BTW, I’m enjoying the RSS retrospective. There’s a lot of cool stuff rolling by that I missed)

    The Colts led 10-0 at the end of the first quarter. At the beginning of the second, I opened a bottle of Dixie Blackened Voodoo. The Saints outscored the Colts 31-7 the rest of the way.

    Coincidence? I think not!

    In all seriousness, congrats New Orleans! Oh to have been in French Quarter Sunday night.

    By the way, I think DBV really misses the cypress tanks. The current batch I have (which AFAICT is still being brewed by a licensed third party) does not seem to have the same flavor I’m familiar with.

    (I know, I know, Chuck. Turbodog’s the way to go. Can’t explain it. Just like me some Voodoo.)

    I thought you might be interested in this contest that ran this week in the Time Picayune. We didn’t win, but Wendy and I were runners up for most original cocktail. I thought you would appreciate it.

    Kendall! Well I’ll be a barrel of monkeyfists. 🙂

    Good to see you! I’ve been here all along. Dig through the Cocktails section to see what you’ve been missing, and have a cocktail, or a hundred.
