When the Saints Go Marching In

I’m in shock. The Saints have won the Super Bowl, and my first reaction is pure and simple shock. I’m not sure I can believe it. “When the Saints win the Super Bowl” can no longer be the local version of “when Hell freezes over,” though I will note that DC is actually frozen over right now. This may be the EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.

I thought I was going to watch the game alone tonight because I’ve been sick, but I didn’t watch it alone. I watched it with Twitter, and that turned out to be pretty fun.

My favorite Tweet of the night came from @natchandler:

Omg for everyone who dreamed of marrying Bobby Hebert .. But u used a bag instead of a wedding veil .. Ok I know it’s sad … But WHO DAT!!

I can’t really top that, and I’m too overwhelmingly amazed to expound on what this means. Everybody knows what it means. God bless you, Who Dat Nation. Believe Dat indeeed. Indeed. Indeed.

Geaux Saints!!!!!! You’ve done us up proud, and nobody around here even owns a paper bag anymore.
