I'm not a huge fan of the NFL.
There, I've said it. Personally, my interests lie with collegiate sports but obviously I can't completely tune out the over-paid and over-privledged professional athletes. But I have an undeniable soft spot for the "under-dog" - and for a long time that has been the New Orlean Saints...

After a 13-3 season, its hard to argue that that Saints are the "ain'ts" they used to be. And no matter if you were rooting for the North or the South tonight, this admittedly was a good game. Well played? Perhaps not. But the mistakes on both sides made for an excellent game to watch. I'll leave my personal feelings on Brett Farve out of this posting. But if he announces his re-retirement again, you bet you'll see some commentary!
