PERSONAL LIFE INVASION: GEAUX SAINTS GEAUX!
Two weeks ago I took a trip to Nashville with Jack and Judy, official father and stepmother of the Mailbox, and TLP. We got to watch the Saints play the Titans in their pre-season openers. On his second touch, Reggie ran the 44-yard blast that has become a staple on ESPN. He also ran a 6-yard out to the far sideline. That play was even better, because the Titans' Pacman Jones rushed up to Reggie like he was gonna level him. Instead, Pacman bounced off Reggie like a three-year-old kid. Beautiful.
The trip was highlighted by getting new siggies on the helmet. Before, the helmet just had Aaron Brooks' signature on it. Now, it's full of Sharpie-mark: Thank you Ernie Conwell, Fred Thomas and Colby Bockwoldt.
And thank you Reggie Bush.
Yep, that's his siggie on the front. TLP and I trekked from the TOP row all the way down to the very front row in the fourth quarter. We parked it by the Saints' tunnel and waited. After the game, Reggie came right to me (probably attracted by TLP, the red-headed hotness wearing a Saints jersey). He signed my helmet and used my Sharpie to sign a few other things, including his old USC jersey.
As for the Saints, they're going to have a good year. After watching two games, I have the following predictions:
- Drew Brees will make Saints fans forget all about Jake Delhomme.
- Joe Horn is going to have an incredible year.
- The defense will still have problems with the run.
- The Saints will finish 10-6.
Great pic. Glad you had so much fun at the game. I can't wait till the end of the season to see if your predictions are right. Geaux Saints! Geaux Tigers!!Post a Comment
