Cha- Ching Indeed

Needless to say I am one happy dude. My beloved Saints are Superbowl champs.

If my live blogging the big game annoyed you I am sorry, but I thought a few of you might enjoy reading the notions filling my head as I watched. For the record I only three things twice, I refrained from cursing but not yelling and when Tracy Porter intercepted that Manning pass I grabbed my oldest son and tossed him above my head four or five times. Normally this is not a feat I can perform, as he is nearly 90 pounds and only an inch shy of five foot, but caught in the moment he was light as a feather.

After the game I received about 50 text messages and a dozen phone calls. Perhaps the coolest conversation I had was with my old FFA teacher from high school who remembered I was a big Saints fan even back then. Pretty cool to know one of your teachers is thinking about you some nineteen years after you've graduated.

Football is now over so I am shifting much of my energy on writing.

I knew this was gonna be a great year and everything still points that direction so I need to get my work out into the marketplace and keep the good times rolling.

Yes, Travis, if the Saints can do it, so can you!

Damn good start to the year!

Melissa Marsh said...

So glad they won for you, Travis, though my little brother (a HUGE Colts fan) was disappointed.

Now start focusing on the writing!

I was thinking bout ya the whole time the game was on, Travis. And I mean that in a "I hope he's celebrating" way, not a "wow, that Travis is a handsome dude" way.

I was actually rooting for them as well, not because I knew you were but because it was just evident that they were trying their hardest to bring home the trophy. They made mistakes, sure, but they just seemed to want it more.

So congrats, and good luck with the writing.

Live blogging is actually a neat thing....sometime it doesn't make sense, but most importantly it gives a fascinating insight to what a blogger actually goes through during an event in the day-to-day wanderings.

Congrats on the Saints winning...

Turns out my mom was rooting for NO, too, "Because they've been through so much." So it's all good.

It was a great game. I was pulling for the Colts but don't mind that the Saints won, they deserved it. Now I think it is only the Biulls, Lions and Browns who have not won a Championship, I think...

Charles Gramlich said...

Yeah, I hope the Saints' success rubs off on me.

Rocketstar said...

Damn and to think I spent the whole night with my friends and didn't even know who won what until about three that morning. I must have missed something important then eh?

Jason said...

I still think a Favre vs. Manning match up would have been fun.

I hope you put money on that game! (I missed the live blogging so it didn't bother me at all!)
Congrats on your team!

The Saints' Super Bowl win proves that ALL things are possible. *L* It's so nice to see everyone so happy. It's not every day that people walk into the library & shout "Who dat!"
Very cool on the call from your teacher, too! That's really awesome.
