What a Bittersweet Week

You wait 32 years for this moment to come along and you go and suffer another major problem with your back and can't walk again.  Well that's my story anyway.  

I loved Sunday night in so many ways and no bitching pain in my back was going to stop that (well except when I jumped up in the air when Vilma picked Favre and remembered my back was part broken and ended up collapsed on the floor).  The game was total tension throughout and I'm just glad I dosed myself up with painkillers as I was half floating all the way through.  Not sure I could have taken it without. 

I would like to thank the following people in order for making Sunday night the best night ever:

Brett Favre
Adrian Peterson
Brad Childress

No seriously our boys were fantastic and they all deserve all the plaudits for a great team effort.  The D were absolutely brilliant with Sharper, Vilma, Fujita, Harper, Hargrove... the list goes on.  The O stuttered but did enough to get it done against a great D with Pierre Thomas making his moves at all the right times.

I'm just so happy for the whole city and region to see our boys in the Super Bowl.  It's going to be a hell of a great time.  In the meantime I'm off to see the surgeon tomorrow to find out what's gone wrong with the old back and am back stuck in bed again.  At least it affords me the company of mates who keep coming round with beers to take my mind off things (or to talk continuously whilst I'm trying to type this - cheers D.May).  And we've all got the great promise of a Super Bowl in under two weeks.  As ever in life you take the rough with the smooth and nothing could be better to keep you focused than a Saints Super Bowl!! 

Big love fellow Who Dats!


  1. Big love back at you! I still haven't completely processed this.

    Please take care of yourself, I hope you are back on your feet soon.

  2. Yep, back at you! It's been one hell of a ride, huh? Best of luck with the surgeon. Tell him to hurry up and fix ya', cause we got one more game of jumping and hollering left! :)

  3. Ah thank you so much. It's been a rough time not being able to walk again having got used to the simple things like going to the ice cooler and stuff so your words really mean a lot. But hey the Saints are in the Super Bowl so everything can be put aside because what this represents means so much to so many people that it really puts any personal stuff to shame.

    I love the city of New Orleans and I can't wait to see the Vincy Lombardy trophy passed down Bourbon Street in honor of all those that weren't lucky enough to see this season.

    Big love and I'm sure speak before the big game. Who DATTTTTTT!!!

  4. Geez, Peter.

    You'll be in our prayers, brother.

  5. Here's a celebrity pre-party Super Bowl event benefiting the Moyer Foundation and the Mario Batali Foundation that Saints fans might be interested in. We'd really appreciate your help getting the word out about this great event for a great cause.
