Before My Next Angry Post
A Carribean take on the best football game ever:
Watching the New Orleans Saints go up against the Atlanta Falcons at the Superdome Monday night brought back for many feelings of Cayman’s recovery from Hurricane Ivan.
The embattled Saints – lovingly referred to as the Aints by many loyal fans because of their inability to win many football games – became a symbol of the human spirit overcoming adversity when they routed the Falcons 23–3 in American football.
The game meant so much more to the people of New Orleans and the victims of Hurricane Katrina...
Even if you weren’t a Saints fan, you couldn’t help but cheer them on Monday night as they went head–to–head with Atlanta.
They showed the determination and resolve all of us felt as we slowly recovered from Ivan.
To be sure, the human spirit is alive and well here, in New Orleans and the world.
