I know it sounds absolutely crazy! But everything that's been happening and less than 2 days before the rematch, it's no coincidence that this is a reinvention of the Rocky story. I have always been excited watching my Saints play any team in the NFL, but never as excited as this! It's almost become a huge obsession within me.
The Rocky story. The bottom line! Remember when Apollo Creed was in his office with his trainer looking confused and angry. He then shouted at his trainer and said: "Man I won but I didn't beat him"! Then the trainer said: "You beat a man like you never have before, and he kept coming after you". Sent chills up and down my spine I will say. Meaning the last NFCCG is that "We won but didn't beat you". And when Deanna Favre looked down and covered her face with her hand in disgust. (I felt bad for her seeing her like that) Adrienne in Rocky did the same exact thing. Former Vikings coach looked alot like Mickey. If this isn't a Rocky story I don't know what is.
Thursday night Sept.9 7:30 is all about business. It's about 2 very good teams on the field fighting for a win! And it remains a mystery until around 10:30 or 11 that night. I firmly believe it's going to come down to the wire! Probably whoever has the ball last. I've learned alot these past offseason months for sure. I will admit I wasn't the best fan in the beginning but something in me changed a while back. My views on not only just sports, but life in general. Now we're just 2 very tough fan bases pulling for our team. No harm! No foul!
I know alot of us had bad blood between us for quite some time, but now things have calmed down quite a bit and I'm glad of that. The important thing I want Thursday night, well of course I want my Saints to win! I'll be pulling hard for my team no doubt. Most importantly, a hard fought clean game with no injuries, no stupid penalties, no late hits and a high scoring game. I'm all up for hard hitting in football. It's football. It's a tough man's sport for tough players and tough fan bases. Just no late hits etc.
Whatever the outcome of the game. I hope it's a great game and win lose or draw you will be congratulated for the team's efforts. Eat plenty of steak, burgers and drink plenty of beer while enjoying the game. It's going to be one hot ticket!!
