Is it just me, or do other Saints fans grow weary of the incessant harping on the hurricane.  Hey, it's over.  My son lost everything, including his job, but it is in the past.  He's working, he has a modest home, and he and his wife are about to have their first child.  The recovery for him was almost two years of hard work at various jobs, but he got through it, and never once did he need inspiration from the Saints.  Neither does anyone else, except for a lot of special needs children an others helped by all the great Saints charity programs, but every NFL team has charity programs that are very much appreciated.  The Saints are to be enjoyed on Sundays, and this has been a fantastic year for us.

We love the Saints.  We loved them before and after the hurricane.  We all enjoyed this Super Bowl victory immensely.  But instead of giving us more interviews with great players like Shockey, Colston and Sharper, we got never ending babble about hurricane recovery.  Look, Drew is a great, great quarterback, and I would like to have heard more from him about the game, but the media is so intent on inducing tears that they forgot about the GAME.  When Brees was holding his son after the game, tears in his eyes, I knew all I needed to know about how he felt.  His is an incredible story of hard work and sacrifice, and it must have been overwhelming.  But what about all the other great Saints players in this game?  Can we please get some bloody interviews about the game?  And if you must talk about New Orleans, spend more time inducing companies and organizations to bring their conventions back to the city and the state of Louisiana.  It is a terrific place for a convention or a celebration.  Upbeat!  We need the money!
