Football season is here!

I grew up in D.C. and I can remember many times I accompanied my daddy to a University of Maryland or Redskins game. I love football. If I could have been a sportscaster I would have been very happy.

But since I moved to Louisiana this is the first time I got a chance to attend a game in the Superdome. Yeah, it was preseason so all I got to do was  watch Brees and Graham on the sidelines but still when the announcer said, "Saints fans. It's thirrrrrd downnn," and when the roar began, it was exciting. Something you don't see or experience watching it on TV. Just being in the stands with other fans, listening to the jazz musicians making the rounds on an upper level. It's a great atmosphere.

I bought a little cheap wig and some gold and black spray paint but I didn't get it painted quite dark enough to look like the team colors. (I'll do better next time.) As will the real team. The third string lost but that won't be the norm. We have a strong team this year.  Looking forward to the season. Geaux Saints!
