I wish I could make you understand what's going on in this city right now. The electricity in the air. The joy that has absolutely nothing to do with the holidays. Love is all around. Everyone is getting along! Young, old. Black, white. Gangsters, churchgoers. Although around here, gangsters and churchgoers are often one and the same.
Anyway, it doesn't matter who you are. Just smile at the person walking by and say, "Who dat!" I guarantee you're gonna get a smile and a "Who dat!" right back.
Un. Fucking. Believable.
The fever is out of control around here. The other day I saw a little old lady with a Saints flag on her car. Yeah you right. Even the jugs of milk are Saints fans:
I feel so lucky to be a New Orleanian right now. I feel even luckier to be here in this beautiful city right now. I get to witness, first-hand, the most (yes, I'm going to say it) magical season the Saints have ever had. WHO DAT!!
