On the 8th of February, for the first time, the New Orléans Saints won the Superbowl, beating the Indianapolis Colts with a score of 31-17. I didn’t watch this historic event.
I saw the very first Superbowl in 1967 before it was even called the Superbowl. After having seen thirty-five of them, I’d made it a policy to not watch the Superbowl from beginning to end if at all. I managed to miss this one entirely.
I am happy that the Saints won. As I had stated in an earlier blog, a Superbowl win would greatly benefit New Orléans. The promotional revenues alone will make a big dent in their tax deficit.
As for the post-win celebration, New Orléans needs no help. This is one party that will likely continue through Mardi Gras.
Laissez les bon temps rouler!
