Jameis Winston Wins Heisman in a Landslide

I can't get too sad about McCarron not winning. He's polling well no matter what the voters think of him.

Damn it! You made me choke on my beer!

Saints Coach Sean Payton Reinstated

I'm sorry I should have clarified my remarks. Yes, we will welcome Payton with open arms. We are joking about throwing him a parade (it is Mardi Gras season). I meant Goodell still won't be welcomed to New Orleans with open arms by reinstating Payton early.

The Game With The Most At Stake

That was a wild game. I didn't really care who won I was just glad there was some live football on the TV but when Reading came back after half-time, like their coach had given them all pep pills, I started rooting for Reading. Stupid penalties is what killed Readings chances, plus they started to wear out after running full bore when they came out after half-time.

7-9 Seattle Seahawks Shock Saints

Yeah my Saints really screwed the pooch. I think they left the real defense at the airport and ended up using some pick up players found at the local gym. At least the Colts and Eagles are out. Hell, I am now (sort of) jumping on the Seahawks bandwagon.

Galarraga robbed of perfect game by blown call on last out.

Sorry if this is a stupid question but I thought they have replay in baseball or is that just during the playoffs?

Jets Fans Gather Each Halftime For 'Show Us Your Tits!' Ritual

Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez!

I live in New Orleans and the year the Saints are having has made everyone around here feel full of hope. When I watched them on Monday night and they blocked the punt I kept saying "Who is this team? This is not my Saints!" Well, they are my Saints and we expect to win now--this isn't some type of fluke. Coach Payton has changed the attitude of not just the team but the entire city. Hail the Saints and beat Da Bears!!

Benson Feels Threatened

Benson is pissed because Taglibue basically told him you can't move to the team to San Antonio while New Orleans is trying to rebuild. I mean the ad Benson put in the paper was such a lame attempt at damage control. Anyway, there was supposedly some fans yelling some things at ol'Tommy and Benson didn't like it and you should see the tape of what Benson did. The reporter and camera man where at least 10 feet away from him and weren't even asking him any questions when Benson just went to the camera and grabbed at it knocking off the microphone. Besides, Benson not only had his own bodyguards with him there were other security surrounding him. http://www.wwltv.com/perl/common/video/wmPlayer.pl?title=www.wwltv.com/1031benson.wmv

"I'm sorry Weedy, it just wasn't meant to be..."

"New Orleans/Oklahoma City" - is this the official Hornet geographic designation for the season and/or a precursor of another frnchise move? George Shinn, owner of OKC/NO Hornets has said Hornets are coming back to NO.

Saints Go Marching Out

I live in New Orleans and I am of 2 minds to this: 1. Benson is an a** and I want him to take the team and go. He is a terrible owner who does not really care about his fans. and 2. If the Saints go then there goes the revenue that was generated by the Saints and New Orleans needs all the money it can get, (ie. beer and food and parking and people who work in the Superdome, etc.) plus, New Orleans gives a great party whenever we get the Super Bowl. I understand your stance lil_brown_bat but it just smacks of kicking us (New Orleans) when we are down. What Benson should do is say the Saints will be back and then he can try to leave in 2007 or sell the team to someone who will keep the Saints in New Orleans.
