To all Eagles fans everywhere...

I've got some wonderful highlights from last weeks' philly fans:

Kace, you need to take the copper and black colored glasses and beads off and come back to reality.  The Saints have made the playoffs ONCE this decade and it was with A LOT of help from the referees and NFL.  It was such a nice story after Hurricane Katrina, but reality hit the Saints again last year when they went 8-8 and didn't make the playoffs YET AGAIN.  I'm not really sure why you're on here pounding your chest because your Saints are one of the biggest jokes of a franchise in the NFL.  Lincoln Financial Field won't be the Saints' cozy little dome with Astroturf, we play on a real football field, so don't expect to win so easily.S_on_My_Chest said:
 
Kace, don't get ahead of yourself with all this chest thumping. The number one offense got the Saints nowhere a year ago, as I recall, that offense didn't produce enough points to make the post season. Obviously, you couldn't stop anybody,  so that logic tells me we have more than a punchers chance to win in spite of who takes the snaps. We may not have all the turnovers we had last week, and the Saints may not put up 45 either. These games aint played on paper, so neither one of us KNOWS what's gonna happen.  See you on Sunday.

The End.

Panic against the Aints playing in Philly's home opener?  Hahaha.  Brees put up great numbers last year with a better defense and running game and still finished 8-8.  Last year, Brees and the Aints were 2-6 on the road, only winning at KC and Det - two powerhouses of football.  If memory serves correctly, the Aints only beat two playoff teams last year, SD and ATL.  Aints have to prove they can win against playoff-caliber teams away from their comfy dome before earning my respect.haywoodj said:

 Just remember you aren't facing Detroit's defense this coming weekend and you are playing on the road.  I don't see the Saints come in and cake walk.  Carolina is one of the better running teams in the league with a true #1 receiver and they did nothing.

Although without McNabb you have a better chance.  But if the D and ST's show up like they did yesterday, I'm not worried. 

It's why they play the game.  Good luck!

Take it easy kace. If your pretty good with logic you should realize your not going up against a team that was 0-16 last year with a rookie qb and rookie coach. Philly has a lot of offensive weapons and McNabb will play, he just wont be 100%. The Eagles D is the question mark. Thats right , I said it (?). Delhomme basically handed over the game with 5 turnovers and Jackson's punt return should have been nullified because of an obvious clip.sweather2003 said:

 Nothing is funnier than a trash talking Saints fan.and the list goes on and on and on....

To all the fairweather, dilluted reality living, ignorant Eagles fans out there....

From all Saints fans everywhere; we'd like to say "We kicked your ass in your own house in your home opener and there's nothing you can do about it."  You fairweather fans will do what you always do and cry and blame something or someone else, but the fact is; we took it to you.  You whiny crybabies cry when McGlass is in, you'll cry when he's out and truth be told being the fans you are; you'll probably jump ship and root for whoever is currently in first place towards the end of the season (which might just be the Saints).  Being that's probably going to be the case, you are welcome to root for us because that's the kind of loyal, honest, good natured fans we are.

Have a great day!

Drew Brees = MVP

Holy Crap! I'm not sayin; I'm just sayin.

I'm not sure how many of you guys own your own houses out there, but geez.  I'm a mortgage broker and I've been doing this for 4 years and I've never seen interest rates this low.  If you guys have mortgages with rates in the high fives or higer, you need to call your local mortgage broker and lower your payments and interest right away.  Fifteen year mortgages are in the 4's.  I haven't been able to talk about my beloved Saints pre-season games because I'm too busy helping people all day.  I can't wait for the season to start.

Drew Brees = #1

Goodbye Jason David!!!!

Thank goodness my beloved New Orleans Saints have a new defensive coodinator that obviously has a good eye for talent.  I almost broke into tears of joy last night when I read that the Saints have released Jason David.  He's been burned a million times for scores and he apparently can't cover anyone outside of the Saints organization.  I watched the first pre-season game this Saturday and watched the hapless Bengals successfully attack him just like everyone else last year did.  I couldn't believe the announcers didn't say anything about it.  He can't cover ANYONE single coverage, can't keep up with speedsters nor is he tall enough to come down with a jump ball.  He was/is absolutely useless and he has been since the day he showed up here.  I think what I'm really trying to say is that I don't like Jason David or think he can play in the NFL lol.  I couldn't be happier that he's gone and my beloved Saints are moving in the right direction.  I think we will suprise alot of people this year and I look forward to our first superbowl.  Look out here we come.

Drew Brees = #1

Ready to go to KC

I'm so ready to get out of here for the weekend and chug down some cold Miller Light this weekend when I go see my buddy in Kansas City.  We're gonna go to some place where you pay to go into a room and break everything in it.  I've never heard about these places, but it sounds like a pretty cool idea.  Apparently, you can get a sledge hammer and put holes in the walls and throw dishes at the wall and such.  I'm looking forward to getting a little intoxicated and breaking stuff.  I'm still pissed about my (currently awful) Brewers.  I hope you all have a great weekend! Peace.

Embarassed to be a Brewers fan today...

Holy crap.  I'm pretty embarassed to be a Brewers fan today.  Here we were close to the top of the division two games away from 1st place and we go 7 for 15 of our last playing some of the worst teams in baseball right now.  This includes what happened last night; giving up two grand slams to the same guy in the same game.  Geez.  Ooh ya; and did I mention that it was all against the worst team in baseball right now?  I'm not what you would call a fair weather fan, but it sure is embarrassing.  We need some SERIOUS changes to our pitching and we need some consistancy from our bats.  That's all I have to say about that.

I'm astounded by idiots.

I was reading this article on yahoo this morning and couldn’t help but to start getting pissed off.  This just goes to show that there are incredibly stupid people EVERYWHERE, in all walks of life and in all professions.  It’s amazing to me to see how damaging the news media actually is sometimes.  This retard apparently thinks he’s not just an astronaut, but a global geologist and global warming physicist.  I’m sure this retard can specifically remember to an exact degree the amount of snow on the mountain tops from 12 years ago.  I’m equally sure that he’s up in the space station at the exact same time as before (in the season) and being that he’s so clever;  he’s able to accurately calculate the changes in the global weather patterns all from LOOKING AT THEM FROM OUTER SPACE!  Seriously?  I wonder where Mr. Thrisk had the time during his many decades of continually training to be an astronaut to become such an expert in so many fields?  It’s people like this that make me want to stand up and slap them back into reality.  Enjoy the article.

 

  By Irene Klotz Irene Klotz – Mon Jul 27, 7:28 am ET

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (Reuters) – A Canadian astronaut aboard the International Space Station said on Sunday it looks like Earth's ice caps have melted a bit since he was last in orbit 12 years ago.

Bob Thirsk, who is two months into a planned six-month stay aboard the station, said he is mostly in awe when he looks out the window, particularly at the sliver of atmosphere wrapped around the planet.

"It's a very thin veil of atmosphere around the Earth that keeps us alive," Thirsk said during an in-flight news conference. "Most of the time when I look out the window I'm in awe. But there are some effects of the human destruction of the Earth as well."

"This is probably just a perception, but I just have the feeling that the glaciers are melting, the snow capping the mountains is less than it was 12 years ago when I saw it last time," Thrisk said. "That saddens me a little bit."

If Thrisk needs a sympathetic ear, he has 12 crewmates with him, at least until Tuesday, when visiting shuttle Endeavour astronauts are scheduled to depart.

The astronauts delivered a Japanese-built experiment platform, installed new batteries for the station's solar power system and stashed spare parts to keep the station operational after shuttles are retired next year after seven more flights.

The $100 billion station, a project of 16 nations, is nearing completion after more than a decade of work.

Endeavour astronauts Chris Cassidy and Tom Marshburn are scheduled for a fifth spacewalk Monday to rewire a station gyroscope, fix insulation on its Canadian-built robot and install television cameras needed to guide a Japanese cargo vessel into its docking port. The HTV cargo hauler is slated for its debut flight in September.

"All in all I think it's an extremely successful mission in spite of a lot of really interesting curveballs that have been thrown our way," Endeavour commander Mark Polansky told reporters.

The latest glitch occurred Saturday when the station's U.S. air-scrubber shut down, prompting NASA to call in extra flight controllers to oversee the device manually. The machine strips deadly carbon dioxide, a by-product of respiration, from the station's air.

"It's not something that we want to do long term, because (of) the number of commands we have to send from the ground. But in the short term, we've got the carbon dioxide removal system back up and running and operating at close to its normal capacity," Smith said.

A backup air-scrubber is due to be launched aboard NASA's next shuttle mission, targeted for launch in August.

Endeavour is due back at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Friday.

My early in the day thoughts...

I had intended on writing about how hungry I was and the only thing I could think about was the new bacon burrito thing at Taco Bell because my wife and mother decided to come temporarily rescue me from job as branch manager of a mortgage company for lunch; but right before I began my wife sent me a text that "she was naked and wished I were there".  I now want to talk about how great a wife I have and how rare it is in this day and age to find out you're going to be a parent at 18, get married and still have such a great marriage even after 13 years.  I'm not 100% on this but I would guess that around 80% of everyone nowadays gets divorced.  I'm not saying that divorce is a bad thing if you are unhappy in your marriage, but what I'm trying to say is that I think people have this misconception that when you get married everything is like the honeymoon time and that everything's going to be perfect all the time.  I think a lot of people run for the hills the first time they figure out that a good marriage takes a lot of time and effort from both sides. 

I'm not going to sit here and pretend that I have the perfect marriage where everything's fine all the time.  I AM going to sit here and say that my wife and I both love each other and are happy together.  You should both be unconditionally supportive and respectful towards each other.  Guys, you should show your affection to them as much as possible.  Women need that.  My wife cut her hair the other day and I made the simplest remark about how I thought it looked good.  I wish I would have known that would invoke the reponses and benefits I've recieved since then earlier.

I have made some mistakes in my life and marriage, but my wife has stuck by me 100%.  I only let you in on just a little piece of my life in the hopes that it may help someone else.  I'm proud to say that I love my wife and look forward to what the next 13 will be like.

Ready for the Saints upcoming season.

I know I'm not the only one, but I'm ready for the upcoming NFL season to start right MEOW!  Did I just say meow? Anyway, the Saints have added much needed help in the secondary defense (Darren Sharper) and some more help on the line.  Our D-line didn't need any help, but we just got DEEP.  It'll be nice to rotate those big boys up front without having such a drop-off in talent.  I'm super excited to have Jonathan Vilma back and I'm looking for good things from Tracy Porter and the new kid at corner.  Our offense being #1 goes without saying.  Drew Brees throwing to Colston, Shockey, and Reggie Bush out around the edges is gonna be a nightmare for any defense.  I'm looking forward to seeing more of Mr. Pierre Thomas in the backfield.  I think he's really gonna have a break-out year.  GeuX Saints Baby!

I look forward to anyone else's comments on my beloved Saints or thier (second place at best) team.  Is anyone else looking forward to it as I am?  Do you have another team that your looking forward to seeing this year?  Let me know and why.  I'll be happy to retort.

Have a great day!

Rob
