My bunghole hurts after that one!

When I was a radio sports talk host, I had a co-host who would use that phrase on Monday’s after his college team (He went to San Diego State, not really a bastion of football prowess) got spanked yet again by some loser college football team.

I’d maybe write about the upcoming elections, or the nice phone calls I’ve gotten for bringing Mancow to the radio station or maybe about the new book I’m reading but those things hold no interest to me right now. Frankly, I’ve been waiting 9 months for the NFL season to start. I’ve been dreaming of the 2007-08 season since the day the Bears and the snow took this city out of the playoffs.

After watching last night’s game, all I can really say is my bunghole hurts from that ass-kicking.

The recovery has stalled out. There is no Golden Goose waiting around the corner for this city. The Road Home is 6 billion dollars short. We all know the problems around here; we live and breathe it almost daily. I think the one thing that the majority of us had around here to hold on too was that the Saints would be good, they would entertain us, they would take our minds off the problems if only for three hours.

That ain’t happening now. Maybe it’s the high expectations. Maybe the league figured out Sean Payton. Maybe Ray Nagin kidnapped Drew Brees and put Marc Morial in a Brees suit to fool us all. I’m not really sure anymore but damn this really stinks.

Yeah I know, lifelong fan, should be use to losing, blah blah blah. I’m not accepting that crap. Maybe you’ll accept the Feds telling you that Louisiana and Mississippi got an equal share of federal dollars but I don’t accept it. Just like I’m not gonna accept this team turning out to be America’s biggest Turkey.

    i’m not a superstitious person but i’m starting to think the mock funeral was a huge mistake. to be on the safe side we should exhume the grave this week.
    what a huge loss is was to hear about Deuce and his torn ACL. i’m guessing he’s not only going to be out for the season but this just may be the end of his career. how sad for us.
    what an outstanding man.
    i’m furious that year after year i have put out a nice chunk of change for season tickets and this is my payback. i can’t tell you how disappointed i am over their performance..or lack of.
