We've only been waiting for this moment since 1967.
We've only suffered through countless seasons of NFL futility, bags over our embarrassed heads.
We well remember
1975 1979 -- the Saints first non-losing season -- when 8-8 felt almost as good as what we imagined 16-0 must be like. Not that we dared imagine such crazy things as 16-0 . . . 9-7, maybe.
WE ONLY WERE born to a state where, it seems, damn little ever goes right and getting collectively ahead can seem just as insane a proposition as the Ain'ts going to the Super Bowl.
Hell, it's about as crazy as having a place kicker with half a foot kick a 63-yard field goal. Oh, wait. . . .
AND NOW THIS. Which puts the remarkable video (at top) from the The Times-Picayune in a little better context.
Today, even Christianity seems a little less audacious. A little.
