Today, according to “experts,” is the unhappiest day in the entire year.

Unpaid Christmas bills, nasty weather, and failed New Year’s resolutions combine to make January 22 the gloomiest in the calendar.

And the guys that came up with that aren’t even Saints fans.

But you know what? I’m okay. I was a fan of the Saints when they were 3-13, and I’m a fan today. And I’m thankful to them for bringing hope and a positive vibe to our state. No one expected them to go this far. No one expected the Superdome, one year later, to explode with excitement.

Our cool Brees ran cold. Deuce vamoosed. Reggie Bush was a bit premature in his endzone celebrating. But I’m proud as heck of ’em. No, I take that back. I’m proud as hell.

Thanks guys. It was a helluva ride.
