It is still October right? The New Orleans Saints scored big in the gift exchange yesterday against the San Diego Chargers. I’m not sure why Santa came early to deliver some packages, but Who Dat Nation is very happy he arrived just in time.

The Saints were staring at 0-4 right in the face. There was no doubt that another loss was coming. Something happened though with a little over six minutes in the game. The Saints were down 13 points and the Chargers had the ball. Santa Clause arrived just in time.

Chargers running back Melvin Gordon fumbled the ball deep in their own territory. The Saints score! This was the bicycle gift. Thank you Santa.

The next one came when Charger’s wide receiver Travis Benjamin barfed up another fumble on the very next play.

This gift was the Playstation One gift with headphones and gaming controllers. This one nearly made me cry. I literally jumped up and started screaming at the television. At the same time, I did pinch myself just to make sure that this wasn’t a dream. Saints score again!

Happiness was an understatement at this point. There was simply a glare to the television thanking the Chargers for all these gifts. It still wasn’t over yet though. The Chargers had plenty of time to kick a go ahead winning field goal. Another gift came. Didn’t Santa do enough already? Surely he had other places to go.

But once again a dropped ball by a Chargers receiver downfield that would’ve swayed momentum fell to the ground. The ball was simply dropped.  This gift was simply an unlimited supply of video games for life.

The game ended and it really happened. The Saints are 1-3 and the world is OK. Perhaps Santa was taking a vacation and had some leftovers from last year. Let’s just thank him and all the elves that came out on Sunday. This was Christmas in October. Thank you Santa….
