Tracy Porter, Drew Brees, Sean Payton ….

Laissez les bons temps rouler, indeed.  New Orleans Saints 31, Indianapolis Colts 17

The Super Bowl this year was a fantastic game.

Congratulations to Sean Payton, former offensive coordinator of the Dallas Cowboys, on winning the challenge on the 2-point conversion.

Congratulations Tracy Porter, Louisiana native, on the pick six that served Peyton Manning notice — just like Tom Brady he can’t walk on water.

Drew Brees went 32-39 in the game. Congratulations, Austin Westlake’s best QB ever, on tying Tom Brady’s record for most Super Bowl completions.

You know, anything that makes me like Jeremy Shockey is pretty darn remarkable. Congratulations on catching a TD in the Super Bowl.

Way to go, Who Dat Nation …

    A bit late on this one, eh? Nice writeup, my friend.

    It was a hell of a fun game to watch, but I had no investment so when it was over the whole brain file got dumped from awareness.

    The onside kick was stunning, love to see that kind of gutsyness, and the NO defense was really an inspiration, played way above their heads, a lot of heart to go with plenty of smarts.

    And what’s with you and Shockey? He’s a very workmanlike TE, plays hard, runs his routes, makes his blocks, no showboating, just gets ‘er done. Of course I don’t know what he’s like off the field, don’t pay much attention to the player’s personal lives. I see them the same way I see movie stars and other artists, there to entertain me and that’s all I want.

    And extra sweet that Bum Phillips lived long enough to see this day. He was a great coach, and raised a good boy.

    Thanks for the compliment!

    Some game, eh?
    And yes, it’s good that Coach Phillips SR. saw this happen. New Orleans was a heart-breaking place to be a football coach, or a QB, for about 40 years. Maybe that’s over now. 🙂

    Shockey’s cleaned his act up some since I first noticed him when he was with, IIRC, the Giants.
    Something about being part of what’s happening in New Orleans — seems to do (mostly positive) things to the off-the-field behavior as well as bring a certain piquancy to the on-the-field effort.
