Manchester United and Real Madrid to play in US

Not really, and who freakin' cares.

This is no shot at the most popular sport in the world, but here in the good old US of A soccer is on ESPN 9 at freaking midnight. The reference is to the NFL trying to promote "our" product overseas where it will always be second best. I said ours because it is us, the U.S. fan who made this sport. And now a bunch of corporate suits think it's best interest is in a global capacity.

I read one good sugestion on how to protest this move, and I would like to share it with everyone. The day the game is played no one watches it on tv. Simple enough. Maybe it's only because now it's my personal interest with the Saints that I take such offense to this, who knows. If I want to watch a bunch of people (with names I can't pronounce) playing a sport that I'm slowly losing interest in, I'll watch basketball or baseball. Leave the National Football League.... well national.

De ja vu !!!!

Say it at so.

     Let me take you guys back a couple of years. The New Orleans Saints hired a new head coach. He's passionate, full of emotion, and one of the top defensive coordinators in the game. The team just came of a horrible 3-13 season under the legend Mike Ditka. Haslett led the Saints to a 10-6 record and a 3 point playoff victory over the Rams, then got blown out by the Vikings. The following season the Saints have a chance to make the postseason but collapse at the end to go 7-9.

 

     In 2006 the Saints hired a new coach, who was  passionate, full of emotion, and one of the top offensive coordinators in the game. Ironically enough the team had just come off another horrible 3-13 campaign under Jim Haslett. Well, Payton led the Saints to a 10-6 record and a 3 point playoff victory over the Eagles, then got blown out by the Bears. The following season hopes were high. There were numerous writers accross the nation picking the Saints to represent the NFC in the superbowl. Well, you all know what happened. The Saints have a chance to make the postseason but collapse at the end to go 7-9.

So now we wait for next year. If we go 9-7 and miss the playoffs, I will truly believe we our cursed. I want to believe things are different. I see how hard Coach Payton works at being the best. Drew Brees is not Aaron Brooks, and there are so many other differences between the two teams that I don't have the time to list. I guess we will have to wait and see.

Whodat & Geaux Saints
