I want to be in that number...

I had intended to write a proper blog post today, but got distracted.

When I was in college living in New Orleans, I remember one night in the French Quarter. I was walking down Royal Street (which runs parallel to Bourbon Street and is lined with antique stores), and in an entryway a quartet was singing acapella. They sang "When the Saints Go Marching In" with revised lyrics:

Oh when the Saints,
win the Super Bowl.
Oh when the Saints win the Super Bowl,
I'll be dead and six feet under
When the Saints win the Super Bowl.

And now look how close they are. Who dat!

P.S. I'm a closet football fan, and have, since marriage, become a devoted Saints fan - even when the going was tough. I need to plan a Super Bowl menu.

YAY! Saints!
I have always loved the city of New Orleans...even wanted to retire there so I had thrilled for the SAINTS!

i'm a JETS fans so there is no way I am rooting for the Colts :)
