I'm So Proud of Drew Brees, no Romo

The Saints season came to an end yesterday in the final seconds of their game against Carolina. The story of the Saints season this year can best be summed up as scratching on the 8-ball, something I am all too familiar with (if you've ever played pool with me you know..although Friday night at Grits I believe Kris and I won both of our games due to the scratching on the 8-ball syndrome, but I digress). All too often this year we'd see our beloved Saints fall behind early rally back, take the lead and then lose in the closing seconds of the game...four times...so close, yet so far...Still proud of you guys...had a few plays gone differently the season may not be over, but still proud of you guys none the less...

...But lets not dwell on what could have been and focus on an amazing accomplishment by Drew Brees. He finished the season with 5,069 passing yards, just 16 short of breaking Dan Marino's 24-year old record. That's one yard for every Lion's loss this season. Yeah, I went there, which reminds me of a joke I heard...

Knock, Knock.

Who's there?

Owen.

Owen who?

Owen Sixteen!

Seriously, though, Drew and the entire New Orleans Saints team, we're all proud of you guys and hope that we can see Deuce suit up in black and gold for a little longer...

And then we have Tony Romo...So in the '06 playoffs you botch a snap on the kick and then try to save it and still scratch on the 8-ball, then in '07 you throw an interception in the playoffs ending the season. In all fairness, the Eagles game yesterday wasn't all you're fault, it was just a big clusterf*%k, but you still didn't help matters with the turnovers. And the image of Tony Romo with his face planted in the ground during the third quarter of the game was just too much. Talk about wiping your face. The press conference after the game didn't do much to help either when he said they hope to go to the playoffs next year and win the Superbowl but if not its ok. Spirit of a champion, Tony? Where's the passion for winning, man? That passion for the game? It seems like Romo's too busy being a celebrity to worry about his team and the game.

Although, Tony Romo did apparently fall over in the shower after the game due to a rib injury, I suspect that maybe Jessica Simpson was involved, or possibly T.O., or maybe both but we won't even go there. One of my friends may find that situation to exciting to even think about, but we won't point them out in a public forum.

So in light of all of this I wanted to bring back an old poster I created after Tony's first major scratch on the 8-ball....so for your viewing pleasure:



...and for your auditory pleasure, a humorous song I found by a band called The Athletic Sports Band...

***Disclaimer: Even though I have a black and gold soul and the Saints are my team, I do like the Dallas Cowboys. Don't take my comments about Tony Romo the wrong way...I have nothing against the Cowboys franchise...in fact they are my second favorite NFL team. I do, however, have a hard time getting behind a team comprised of players such as Romo, T.O. and Pac-Man...sorry, Adam Jones.
