Hi, my name is weese, and I am a Saints fan

I have been a Saints fan for over 25 years.
It began innocently enough - those smashing gold and black uniforms caught my eye. And who doesn't just love the fleur de lis.

I always say ..if you look good, you play good.

Meaning -- that by looking smart and tidy in your uniform you'll feel more confident. If you are confident you will play better.

Granted this has not always worked for the Saints. In fact, perhaps not at all.

But weese is nothing if not loyal.
I picked them, and so for all these years I have stuck with them.
I have never swayed.
I have never turned my back.
In fact it was during some of their lowest years when my kids surprised me with this.


So many years I put this jersey away before the playoffs.
I am thrilled to be able to wear it for the first time on Superbowl Sunday.
They'll be no party here. No laughing and joking or story telling with wild drinking or fraternizing going on in our living room this year (well...except for some light drinking and fraternizing with my dallas-cowboy-fan wife).

We are watching the game.
Game on.

My gf is also a long time Saints fan. We'll be on the edge of our seats the whole time!

Only Saints fans will be at the house with us, cheering, on Sunday.

Go Saints!

Somehow, win one for the Weese, just doesn't have the same tone/feel as.... jes sayin'!

We are thrilled to be rooting for the Saints at our party! I am a little irritated there aren't a lot of flowers that match their colors for decorating with...

If the Viking had made it, Sara would have canceled the entire party so she could watch in the serious dedicated football fan way it would have required.

I am relieved its the Saints!
