Perseverance of the Saints

Though they lost the NFC championship,
the Saints have every reason
to feel good about their Chicago trip
and their most illustrious season.

For four decades the team has fought
against great odds and shame.
And for too long, it seems, they've sought
to win just one big game.

So never in our wildest dreams
did we ever think we'd see
the Saints among the best of teams -
number two in the NFC!

No, the Saints won't go marching in.
There'll be no Super Bowl.
But loyal fans have cause to grin:
Their team has found its soul.

Now let this thought quell the urge
to feel down and shed a tear.
Don't groan or sing a mournful dirge,
'cause they're going all the way next year!

Maybe that's why yesterday was "Blue Monday". Statistically, it's the day after your favorite team misses going to the superbowl. (Vikings fans are familiar with that, too).

Vikings fans - well, the older ones, anyway - at least know what it's like to make it to the Super Bowl. Not necessarily winning one, but that's still more than Saints fans can say.
