Ok, I'm not a fan of the NFL, but back in 1992 when I was working at a comedy club, our Miller Beer rep wanted to give out NFL swag to all the employees. Seeing as though we were in Dallas, most got a bunch of Cowboys shit. Me? I went for the Saints. I had lived in Lafayette, LA for a year in 1986 and I even marched in the Superdome during a Tulane game. I'm also a big fan of the city so it all just made sense to me.

That's when I became a Saints fan. Naturally, I got used to how much they sucked, and that was part of the charm. After Katrina, the Saints were pretty much the only thing keeping the city together, even though they played in Baton Rouge and San Antonio. When the 'Dome reopened, who can forget the great performance by Green Day and U2 featuring the Skids' "Saints are Coming"? Of course, the Saints won handily and it's been a miracle since.

Which brings me to today. The Saints are now 13-0 after beating the Falcons today. They've NEVER won 13 games in a season, much less go unbeaten by them. I have a friend who works for the club, and even he is saying what everyone is thinking, "We gotta chance at the Superbowl... hell really is freezing over!"

So, as someone who hates the NFL, but has followed one team since the early 90's, this is a glorious moment.

This is now the official LARS New Orleans Saints discussion thread.

Bring on your hatred! Bring on your stories! No matter what, I'm gonna watch them go 14-0 next weekend.

In the LARS Fantasy league I drafted Drew Brees 2nd overall behind Anthony's Adrian Peterson pick. Drew has gotten me 25 points (minimum) every week except for 2. I still wish he was with the Chargers

besides that, who cares. Didn't warrant their own thread

You say that now, but after they win the S'Bowl, this'll be a great thread.

And did I really get chastised by ZERO COOL on posting etiquette? Really??!

It's a great story, and as a fan of another perennially crappy team the Saints' rise gives me hope. But ZC is right.

You may be right, but I rarely start threads that have nothing to with a LARS function or event. Let me have this one because it's my party, baby, and I'm inviting people to it.

AND... if the magic keeps happening, I'll have a LARS gathering for the Saints and have a bunch of Gumbo. So now it's a thing.

Before I realized it was Tommy who started the thread, I thought it was another dumbass newbie who was going to teach us "new" chants in the other forum. Please merge, everyone knows white people are always wrong on the internet

This reminds me of Family Guy's version of Star Wars. When the two droids escaped the princess' ship in an escape module, one Empire dude says, "Don't fire... there's no life on it", and the other one turns and says, "What?!? Are we paying by the laser now?"

Seriously, if people are concerned about me starting a New Orleans Saints thread in the "All Sports Forum" of an MLS team's fan group page, especially when I have NEVER started one here before, well, I have one thing to say: GET MORE FIBER IN YOUR DIET.

By the way, did anyone catch that this may lead to me having a cajun food party for LARSers?

That was an awesome moment.

I love the video for the song too. Very poignant.
