I am a New Orleanian from birth from February 4, 1966 when I came into this World as Derrick Michael Smith in Metairie Louisiana where we lived until I was 8 years old. The family of Dad, Mom, an older sister and three younger sisters then moved to the West Bank (The Best Bank) where we resided in Gretna through my sophomore year at De La Salle High School until moving again to the north (Cleveland Ohio and then Fort Wayne Indiana) where I finished out my high school career.
I now live in Clinton, TN. I have been a Saints fan since day one of my life by birth and I was even a season ticket holder in 2002 of a Saints Superdome seat along with one of my younger sisters who was also living near me at the time in the Chattanooga area. I have been to all three of the Saints Training Camps that were held in Jackson Mississippi and went to the 2009 camp in Metairie for an extended weekend of 5 days to see 3 days worth of practices. In short, I bleed Black and Gold through and through and you'll be hard-pressed to find a more devoted Saints fan than me anywhere.
Derrick, thanks for your comments on our rankings. I see that you comment, and then they vanish. That's happened with a few other folks who tried to comment as well. I have no idea what's happening, but it's bumming me out. Thanks again for reading. Good luck this season! You've got an exciting team in front of you.

cool, but Chris Hanburger and Maxie Baughn deserve it ahead of Rickey - who was more a one dimensional player...though he deserves entry as well
Blair had superior stats than Rickey, and was a special teams star too

I have just published a battle cry for (LSU) Tiger Nation. It's a must read for Tiger fans and it might be my best literary effort to date, I hope everyone will enjoy regardless of team or sport affiliation.
Please let me know what you think, I hope you like it and feel free to recommend it to a couple of friends if you find me worthy!.
Thanks in advance - HB
As President of the Les Miles Fan Club I took a big hit on Saturday Night but is Les really on the Hot Seat?
I'd appreciate your feedback and I hope you like it, if you find me worthy!
