The first week of February and we have arrived at Super Bowl week. It just don't feel the same down here in the Big Easy.
Last year we were preparing to cheer the boys in black & gold (not the Steelers) in their first ever trip to the big game. The entire week was electric. New Orleans recovered in leaps and bounds during the Super Bowl euphoria. And of course we know, as we look back, that the Saints came through and won the Super Bowl in just their first trip. And the aftermath of that victory was euphoric squared.
Down here in New Orleans we always used to say: wait til next year. Then next year arrived and we learned to deal with being world champions. I guess we now can say: wait til last year!
The Super Bowl will go on without the Saints participating and sometime between now and the weekend I must decide Packers or Steelers. I'll watch but it will so not be the same.
And we can start preparing now for the Saints to return to the Super Bowl in 2012.
