A Lot of Americans Saw a Good Game Monday Night

“Good Game” comes from a Saints fan’s perspective. “A Lot of Americans” comes from the ratings:
The New Orleans Saints' return home to the Superdome on Monday Night Football drew the highest rating ever for ESPN and was the highest-rated program of the night on any network, broadcast or cable.

***

It was the second largest cable audience ever behind the 1993 NAFTA debate between Al Gore and Ross Perot on CNN.
Which leads me to my favorite sign seen on TV in the dome:
Thanks, America. But the Saints are our team.
Should we keep winning, instead of being considered “America’s Team,” I propose the country opt for the President’s preferred term: “That Part of the World's Team.”

The NFL recently announced that it will play its first-ever game in China during the 2007 preseason. This is in tradition with the usual American Bowl, played abroad in preseason since 1986.

Only one regular-season game has ever been played out side of American borders, and that was a Cardinals game in Mexico. As I recall, that game got quite a bit of attention. Maybe it would work in our favor to embrace N.O. as "that part of the world." Maybe then the NFL wouldn't have such a hard time deciding whether or not to have the Saints play at home.

I love it. When Bono sang "we are all Americans", I wanted to bitch-slap him and say, "No we ain't. Ain't you been payin' attention, homes?".

That sign was perfect. We are not and never will be America's Team. We're stupid for living here, remember? We are the NEW ORLEANS Saints, for all the Gulf South. Boo yah.

That's ok, because the Green Bay Packers are America's Team, not the Dallas Cowgirls. Now you know what every Sunday in Green Bay feels like.
