I gotta say….

…thank you to the NFL and how it handled the fundraising telethon this evening. It was highly cool for such past and present stars to volunteer to answer the phones. Also thank you to the Giants fans for having class and, in a way, supporting both teams. Y’all had your own hell to deal with four years ago so, as much as anyone, y’all understand the situation. And, of course, thanks to all who contributed. Here’s hoping the money goes where it’s most needed. Gonna get me one of them “Be A Saint” t-shirts.

I apologize to those who have been blunt about stating their opinion that I have been ungrateful or self-centered in recent posts. I have said “thank you” beaucoup ways in this forum. I have also stated time and again how lucky we are, since we at least know we have a home to go back to. We have friends and family and unknown others who have helped tremendously and continue to do so without being asked (including many readers of this board). It’s incredibly humbling and, in its own way, wonderful at the same time.

Please understand this is the only forum I use to lay myself open. It has been very cathartic, but it’s also a very public place. Blogs should be that way — uncensored and open to individual interpretation, as incorrect as they sometimes are. Be it frustation, joy, pride, confusion or a combination of all and more, this is the method I choose to let it out. Not everyone is going to Get It, but that’s okay. Each response, positive or negative, provides a chance to review and think — and no one can ask for more than that.

Thank you Sean for the opportunity and the help and thank you fellow New Orleanians for keeping the faith.

But SIX turnovers in tonight’s game? C’mon y’all……
