    I raise a toast to you who are about to play! :beerchug2:

    Although I am not to be counted among your fans, may the gods of American Rules Football show you their favor, and allow you to hand the father and mother-fudging Colts their arses on a platter!

    "Who dat? Who dat? Who dat say dey gonna beat dem Saints? Who dat? Who dat?"

    I'm very happy for the Saints but I feel bad for Peyton Manning. Coaching lost the game more than anything though that late pick iced it. I'm not gonna knock Peyton too much because the Saints played and coached better. Sean Payton called a perfect game (sans the reverse) and Drew Brees officially entered the Hall Of Fame discussion.

    The Saints had a great game and Brees is deserving of MVP - he had an excellent game. They made the right plays, the right calls, etc.

    Yes they did... the moment of a lifetime.

    As for Peyton, both he and Eli, sons of ex Saints quarterback Archie Manning, are very much liked and supported by people in this area, as is Brett Favre. And Peyton’s accomplishments are indisputable. We here of course think Drew is better. But hey, we're biased. At least he was last night.

    Nor do we see the pass that Tracy Porter intercepted as "Peyton's mistake" as many in the news are calling it. That pass was no different from what he seemed to be able to do for much of the night (when he got the chance) with a coolness and accuracy that was chilling to behold.

    But Porter had the foresight to study the films and recognize the play. And had the talent, daring and presence of mind to do what he and the Saints have done almost all season long - snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

    To call the pass a mistake only diminishes the ingenuity and gameplay of Porter, Sean Peyton, Drew... the entire team: that ability to turn defense into offense, and visa versa.

    In the end, I guess, the Saints just wanted it more, were more determined to find a way... to fulfill a destiny that would not be denied.

    Or that’s my take. Maybe this local song says it better:
