For our anniversary this year, Dear Husband bought four tickets to yesterday’s game between the New Orleans Saints and the Houston Texans… and what seats they were!
For a die-hard Saints fan like Polimom, this was awesome! But although he could provide the tickets, and he could get us safely to (and into) Reliant Stadium — an adventure in its own right — he couldn’t help the Saints play.
Too bad, cuz they could have used his assistance; the whole game pretty much looked like this:
Hard to play well when the quarterback is colliding with his team-mates, yes? (And this disastrous play was followed immediately by a fumble on the 1 yard line… )
On the good news side, the punter got lots of practice.
You know — in some ways, the Saints’ playing like garbage is comforting — kind of like a well-worn pair of jeans. On the other hand, it sure would be nice if last year’s Saints would come out to play a bit more often this year…
