A humiliation at the hands of the champs

Watched some of the second half of the NFL season-opener, tonight, and I didn’t mind the outcome one bit. And I’m not a Colts fan.

Last season, I picked up a little bit of an attitude problem about the Saints. I’m an N.C. State Wolfpack fan (class of ’88). Having Mario Williams picked up by the Texans as the No. 1 draft choice was about the only bright spot in the football season. Of course, the TV geniuses all pronounced Mario a bust and whined that Reggie Bush, the No. 2 pick, should have gone ahead of Mario. And ESPN couldn’t stop polishing Reggie Bush’s knob.

Not to mention, the Saints had just picked up Drew Brees, who’d decided to become a good quarterback in San Diego just in time to keep Wolfpack alum Philip Rivers from playing. And then Brees out-statisticked Rivers last year, which is irritating.

So it was fun to watch Reggie and Drew pretty much eat it the whole second half.

Sometimes you have to stretch a little to give a damn about a football game. But I’m willing to go the extra mile. I do this for you, the dedicated ‘Lamentations’ blog viewer.
