Ok, I admit it—I took the bandwagon here. I've never lived in New Orleans. I'm from New York, and I started watching the Saints in 2006. Don't ask me what drew me to the Saints. I don't know. I know only this: that I love them, that I always will, and that, in some strange, nonsensical way, I always have. Glad to be here.
