The New Orleans Saints are Ain’ts No More!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on February 8, 2010 by All Conference Vintage

It took 42 years, but the New Orleans Saints are Ain’ts no more!  The Saints were my first favorite football team when I was kid growing up in Houma and Baton Rouge.   My dad took me to see the Saints lose to the Bengals in 1981 in a practically empty Super Dome.  Even then, it was a party.  I asked for a real Saints football helmet that year for Christmas and Santa delivered!  After banging my head against the wall a few times to scuff it up, I noticed that the gold paint actually covered a Packers helmet! 

It was practically unimaginable at 8 years old that the Saints would ever win the Super Bowl.  Back then, hardly anyone called them the Saints, they were always “the Ain’ts”- as in “they Ain’t never gonna win nothing.”  At 35 years old, this is pretty much how long I thought it would take.   New Orleans needed this and my 8 year old self rejoices. 

But I’m still a Bears fan and have been since 1983.

The Arizona Cardinal’s quarterback Kurt Warner announced his retirement today.   Thank you Captain Kurt for putting the Chicago St. Louis Phoenix Arizona Cardinals back on the NFL map!

The Vikings repulsed

Posted in arizona, football, sports with tags , , on December 7, 2009 by All Conference Vintage

The Arizona Cardinals expelled the Minnesota Norgwegian Invaders last night, as our bigs throttled Jared Allen and the rest of the vaunted Vikes pass rush.  Warner carved up the Viking’s clearly confused secondary and Brett Favre was harried on nearly every play, uncharacteristically underachieving on third down conversions.  

Really, it’s just an excuse to post this rad Vikings button from their inaugural season.  I forget from whence I grabbed that image, sorry.
