A "Who Dat" gal............



Okay, I suppose if you are presently living on planet earth, you likely are aware that the Super Bowl is taking place this Sunday evening. Now, you must understand that I am NOT a football fan in any shape, form or description. But, since I am a Louisiana gal, I feel that I MUST get "into" the spirit for the upcoming game. Don't you agree? And, you must know too, that I am NOT a t-shirt wearing kind of gal either. I have nothing against t-shirts at all, in fact, I think a lot of them are really cute, but I've just never been one to wear them. Again, there are just some things that we have to do and I HAD to get a Saints t-shirt to sport around this week-end and show my support for my state team. I mean really! I must confess that I spent way too much time searching for just the right one too. It had to be cute! You can only imagine all the folks selling t-shirts around here, out of shops, the trunks of cars, on empty parking lots, you name it. So, I had a lot of places to check out and finally found the one that "rang my chimes" and for a most reasonable price.

You see, this whole deal with the Saints playing in the Super Bowl is a huge boost to our state and giving us a chance to SHINE. Our beloved state has grown use to getting a bad "rap" and our self esteem has really been diminished in recent years. Hurricane Katrina in 2005 just almost did us in and we're still recovering from it. I am in the Northern end of the state and while we did not get the brunt of the storm, the entire state (and those nearby) reaped the effects. So, we have definitely earned our right to the "limelight!" ~smile!

You may be wondering about the "Who Dat" on my shirt. Well, the NFL tried to take credit for that in the past days but they were quickly informed that that wasn't about to happen. It seems that the phrase was adopted by The Saints in 1983 as their chant. I'll let you "Google" it if you want to know more. ~another smile~

I imagine most of you are familiar with the Fleur de Lis and that too, is associated with the Saints here in Louisiana. It is also often used in decoration and can be associated with royalty. I have a decorative one hanging on my door and then the flag we are currently flying in our yard is a Fleur de Lis design too. Little did I know when I put these up that the entire state would be hanging and flying Fleur de Lis' for the Super Bowl. Yea, for me!!




And, I am thrilled that Drew Brees in the Saints quarterback. What a great guy! I am so pleased when I see an outstanding athlete take a stand for Christ. There are so many "little guys" watching these men and what an opportunity it is for them to be a Christian witness.

I imagine I will be watching the game Sunday evening and Hubby will keep me informed as to what is going on. I have no idea about football. I do know what a football is and I do know what a touchdown is. Other than that, I'm very challenged in the area of football. But, I do hope that our Saints will bring home the title. You may feel the entire state "rock and roll" if such should happen. I'll be doing my part by cheering them on!

A happy Super Bowl week-end to you all!

  5. You look cute in your t-shirt. I had to find a KY shirt this summer for a certain event, so I can understand searching for the right one. Go Saints! (OK, I'm not really a football fan, but who doesn't like the superbowl.)

  7. Hi, CiCi--
    Love your door decor! I'd say you have the fever...Best of luck to your team on Sunday, but having both a TN and IN past, I have to cheer for the Colts...At least until I get sleepy and head to bed!
    Thanks for stopping by Cozy Your Home.

  9. That's about all I know about football, too! I'll be watching, only because I entered the football pool at work, and I want to see if I won any money!

  10. Thanks to 6th grade PE, I do know quite a bit about football, but have not kept up with the teams and players, etc. My brother is rooting for the Saints so I guess I will just stand up and cheer when everyone else does at the Superbowl party at my sister's house. =p I'm really there for the food btw. You are too cute with your t-shirt. Love it! Have a fun weekend!

  11. We are not football watchers here, but I do like some of the SB commercials! Lol! That is a great picture of you in your shirt. Louisiana does need a boost - I am glad they have something to rally about now. I am from Loooo-siana myself; my parents live up in Shreveport. :)

    Have a great weekend!

    We watched the game here for sure. So happy for the Saints and for Louisiana. I'm a Louisiana girl myself. My parents are in the northern part of the state too. Geaux Saints!!
