I loved today’s Superbowl Sunday. It was a fabulous day for the New Orleans Saints, for the City of New Orleans, and for the fans of the New Orleans Saints. Now it is true that everyone who knows me know me as a staunch Pittsburgh Steelers fan, but today I rooted for the Saints. I have had a soft spot in my heart for the Saints since I lived in New Orleans back in the mid 1990’s.
It is nice to see the New Orleans Saints get their first Superbowl ring. As the Steelers who have 6 Superbowl rings know so fondly, the Saints can savor being the NFL World Champions for the next year.
Congrats Drew Brees and the rest of the Saints for a great season. Sorry to the Colts fans – the game really did come down to the deciding factor in so many Superbowl games – that of who made the mistake and who didn’t. Payton Manning probably had his best career of playing this year – especially in playing under pressure, but in this game he threw one errant pass and it will most likely haunt him for a long time to come. Too bad the critics will haunt him too. Congrats to Payton too for having an awesome year.
