Saints Win Super Bowl 44! We Win, We Win!

I have warned everybody in my house, "Do not toss out tomorrow's newspaper." Yes, the Saints won Super Bowl 44! Final score, Saints beat Colts, 31 to 17. Both teams gave their all.

Tracy Porter's interception of Manning's pass for a 74-yard touchdown had me screaming at the top of my lungs, and did anyone notice when the clock stopped at 4th Quarter 44 seconds? I hear shouting in the streets, screaming, fireworks going off. I've done my screaming and now I'm just smiling at everyone.

Read about the game at And watch follow-up at WWL TV. Both have live cams on Bourbon Street.

On Saturday, published my piece on how the Saints going to the Super Bowl is impacting the city of New Orleans. Consider now what it means to to win!

And I have to post "Get Crunk" by the YinYang Twins, which I first posted while talking about the Saints and superstitions. I suspect this coming week a lot of folks will be playing the number "44" for the lottery.

It was a good game. I kept telling my youngest and another male friend of mine that The Saints were going to win. Did they listen? NOOO!

Party on! :)

Glad you told 'em. :-) The win was icing on a big round king cake. Win or lose, it's beautiful, but winning makes it perfect. :-)

You weren't the only one screaming when that interception occurred, Nordette. Over at my brother's home for SB 44 and all of us (wives and children, too) were up on our feet doing the same when it happened. Great, great game. Well deserved win, too! Thanks.

WOO-HOO! The Saints aren't my team (Dallas) but I was certainly cheering for them! My borther-in-law is a Saints fan...has been for 20 years. He is thrilled. I had to support his team...after years of chiding him about them.

I am definitely Marchin' in with the SAINTS!
