Saints in the Superdome Tonight

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
We are Still here and it feels good.

I think that is the message tonight. I hope everyone watches the game and the special halftime show.

I just saw part of the pre game concert on ESPN and it brings tears of joy to ones eyes. The Song was by the Goo Goo Dolls and it was Better Days.
And you ask me what I want this year
And I try to make this kind and clear
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days
Cuz I don't need boxes wrapped in strings
And desire and love and empty things
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight's the night the world begins again

And it's someplace simple where we could live
And something only you can give
And thats faith and trust and peace while we're alive
And the one poor child that saved this world
And there's 10 million more who probably could
If we all just stopped and said a prayer for them

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight's the night the world begins again

I wish everyone was loved tonight
And somehow stop this endless fight
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight's the night the world begins again
Cuz tonight's the night the world begins again


Yep its time to forgive and all move on.

New Orleans has got a lot of negative coverage. Much of that criticism was justified but my God a lot it has not been. New Orleans and the surrounding metro area have some of the greatest folks on the planet. 99 percent of the struggles and yes even victories have never been brought into the public eye. Tonight is one of those important ones. It is much more than a football game tonight.

GO Saints
