The Super Bowl
Tomorrow is Super Bowl XLIV, featuring the Indianapolis Colts versus the New Orleans Saints. Above, a postcard from each team's home town.
I am rooting for the New Orleans Saints, for three random reasons. First, while I haven't been to Indianapolis, I have been to New Orleans and between the jazz and the food and the energy in the streets and the voodoo and cemetaries and Mardi Gras and and and - how can you not love the place? Second, New Orleans is a city that could use something to celebrate, and while winning the NFC championship is a big deal in and of itself, the big one is the Big One. Lastly, our friend from college was drafted out of UC Berkeley to be a running back for the Saints many years ago, and because of this I've always felt a certain fondness for the team.
Tomorrow - postcards from the first time I went to the Super Bowl.
