Football Love and Loyalty

Unfortunately, the outcome of the BCS Championship game on Monday night was the polar opposite of what every LSU fan wanted. In fact, it was exceedingly painful to watch.


I’m not going to pick the game apart, even though there is PLENTY I could say. I’ll simply say this: Alabama deserved to win that game. Congratulations to the Tide.


So with that utter embarrassment now behind us, Louisiana’s attention returns to our other, more impressive football team: the New Orleans Saints, baby.


Drew and the rest of the boys won their wildcard playoff game against the Lions convincingly last Saturday night, and they’re headed to San Francisco to take on the 49ers this Saturday afternoon.


Geaux Black and Gold.


Like many other states with powerhouse professional and college teams, we take our football seriously down here.


We’re loud, we’re passionate, and we’re opinionated, but most of all we’re loyal.


New Orleans was only recently given a real team to cheer for every Sunday, but that doesn’t mean we didn’t support our Saints through the bad years. We may have had bags on our heads while doing so, but we were still right there alongside them. Wishing, hoping, and praying we would break through just once.


And, eventually, we did. The New Orleans Saints won Superbowl XLIV on February 7, 2010. And no one can ever take that away from us.


So yes, LSU may have lost the title game this year, but they still had a 13-1 season. And while we still reserve the right to yell and scream and tell the coaches what we would do, we’ll still cheer them on next season and every season after that.


Because, ultimately, we love the game. And because we are true and loyal fans.


And that’s just what we do.
