If you become a fan this year, you will not likely be called a bandwagon fan.
However, if you have to be talked into being a Saints fan, then you may not be made of the material needed to be a Saints fan.
We're a tough bunch who rely on each other to make it through tough times. And there have been tough times. The 1980 season, Dave Wilson, Ditka, Alex Molden over Eddie George, Jonathan Sullivan over Marcus Trufant, Katrina/Aaron Brooks season and now 'bountygate' and the 2012 defense. But I know as a Saints fan I'm tough enough to take it. And I know I've got other die hard fans who feel the ups and downs the same way I do. I know that the Saints are the soul of one of the most special city's on the face of this earth. A place where people are connected regardless of who they are. And when the times are right, we are together in moments of orgasmic proportions. The good times are grand! Our first playoff apperance in 1987, Hakiem's fumble in 2001 for our first playoff victory, Steve Gleason's punt block to reopen the dome on Monday night against the Falcons, Drew Brees, Duece's touchdown on MNF to become the leading scorer in Saints history, Meachem's strip and score against Washington, the onside kick against the Colts at halftime, the Lombardi Trophy and Brees' consecutive passing record. We live and die and love with these moments...
I would suggest going to a game...then sobering up...then look in the mirror and asking yourself if you have what it takes to be a Saints fan.
