I live in the Tampa Bay area and cheering for the Saints would be like an mgoblog regular cheering for MSU.

I hope the city of New Orleans continues to recover and wish its citizens well, but as to the Saints:

Geaux Bleaux.

Who dat?

I don't really have a horse in this race, but there are few minor factors that tip me to the black and gold:

- The Saints used to be where the Lions are. If they can do it, so can the Lions. (Don't talk about ownership. Please let me dream.)

- I mildly dislike Indiana, simply because it gets in my way when I try to get back to Michigan. It's impossible to hate such a bland place.

That must be why it's a vacation destination. :-] Where should I go this weekend? Vegas, Cabo, or Indianapolis? You know what they say: "What happens in Indy stays in Indy because no one cares, but it will still be decried as sinful from 1,000 Methodist pulpits."

Decent compared to Fort Wayne, yes. Decent compared to Winchester, Virgina (whose nightlife is nothing special), no. I've unfortunately spent time in Indy, and viewed its scenic fleshpots. Falling under "not as bad as you might think" is not the same as "not bland."

It's a city with no history, and no reason for being aside from bureaucrats drawing an X through the new rectangular territory and saying, "Let's build a capitol here."

I'm rooting for the Saints in large part because I don't want Peyton Manning to win as many Super Bowls as Tom Brady. (Yes, I am that petty.) Also, the whole "good for the community that was devastated by a hurricane" thing.

Not petty, you just remember those bastards in Tennessee voting away our outright NC title in '97. Tennessee whiners. We regain our title as largest stadium, win a NC AND piss off the SEC in the same year by Woodson winning the Heisman over Manning? Damn, good memories.

On a side note, Peyton does have funny commercials...because he's goofy looking.

I also live in the 504 these days. The French Quarter last night was one of the most amazing scenes I've ever witnessed. I saw 2 grown men break down and cry tears of joy after Manning's 4th down pass fell to the ground. I'm so happy for the people of this city.
