re: These are the golden days, boys..


I always wondered if I would live long enough to see the Saints in superbowl, let alone win it all. Many many Saints fans including my dad and grandfather, and Buddy D didn't.

We were a complete joke for decades. Truly grateful and I hope everyone else is too.

Yeah we were lucky to rack up 6W were just cursed on MNF until then (06). I recall even listening on the radio our 1st W vs Steelers in 84 since was blacked out! Not even a sellout!
Was there for the infamous O Raiders debacle though 79 with the Snake, Ugh, those were dark days in primetime!

re: These are the golden days, boys..


I vaguely remember, as a lad, being excited for an upcoming Saints season. We had such a potent offense: Manning, Muncie, Chandler, Galbreath, and we'd just come so close to breaking through the year before. It was glorious to be so young and full of anticipation...

And then IT happened. Oh well, it cemented me as a Saints fan, through thick and thin. Made the Mora years all that much better. I still remember hearing Bradshaw on Monday Night betraying his Steelers and yelling "Run Hokie Run!".

All we went through, in order to get to Brees/Payton, it makes this that much more beautiful.

MFer, of all the Saints follies in the past, THAT game was prolly the most emotionally devastating to me. After 10 years it looked like it was all starting to come together. That Manning-Muncie-Galbreath-Chandler-Childs show would likely be even better today than it was then. Easy to imagine Archie running the read option. Upon that loss I knew Nolan was done as HC. He was fired 4 games into 1980 starting 0-4. The shite only got worse finishing 1-15. Golden age now or not that one still hurts 34 years later.

I can remember being 8 or 9 and watching Edd Hargett or Billy Kilmer trying to convert a 3rd and 52 vs the St Louis Cardinals.......

Don't remember the final, just that the Saints had to gain 50plus to get a first down.

OMG, i remember that game well. That was our first ever win on MNF. I was in Las Vegas at the time as a kid with my parents. Watched in in the hotel room. Mark Malone was QB for the steelers and I never forget Dennis "dirt" Winston's pick 6. That was fabulous.

Coco...I had no idea you were 23.

My experience is becoming invested in the Saints is similar to yours. Was born into the Saints, thus sort of accepted them as shitty, or just non-winners, while I was a kid. Around age 10 and 2000, I really started to become obsessed. I think age 11/12/13 is when you really start to love football.

There were some on the OT that used to think that. There's another Coco on here that's a girl, maybe that's why.
