Saints vs Colts, Super Bowl 44. Who, GSOM, are you rooting for in this year's edition of the Super Bowl. I for one am rooting for the Saints because of 3 reasons.
1) Their city needs this more than any other city. You could feel it in this years NFC Championship game. As Howie Long said in the pregame, "The Vikings are the better football team, but it is destiny for the Saints to win." I sort of agree with that statement. You could feel it when hartley(saints kicker) made that field goal in OT to win it. The crowd erupted, the whole stadium was so happy. The streets soon filled with happiness to a city that can finally have something to cheer for. Their team is representing them in grandest stage of them all, and are represented well.
2) Drew Brees, and that offense. Drew Brees is probably one of the best leaders and people I have ever seen. His pregame rant even pumps me up and I'm not a Saints fan. He's helped out that city so much and it's practically his city(along with CP3). He is so good on the field that he makes it look easy. The rest of the offense, including Bush, Marques Colston, Henderson, Pierre Thomas. That's what I like about the offense, no one single playmaker outshines the other, a total team effort and hopefully can put on a show on February 7th.
3) Who Dat. It's hard too root against this team(other when playing your favorite team) because they are just that kind of secondary team that you like. In every sport you have a couple of teams that you enjoy watching because theirs something special about them. The Saints are special and their fans deserve this.
Nothing against Peyton Manning and the Colts, as they could have been playing for perfection, and will be tough to beat. Here's to a great Super Bowl and go Saints.
