After watching my Cleveland Browns beat the Seattle Seahawks in the ugliest football game I have seen in a long time, I was treated to watching the Indianapolis Colts get embarrassed by the New Orleans Saints 62-7. Fortunately for the Colts, they are one more game closer to ending this debacle of a season.
And now news regarding the $4 million rent-a-player, Kerry Collins, that promptly got hurt:
Collins started three games for the Colts, getting knocked out in the third quarter against Pittsburgh. He hasn’t played a down since and has been limited to light individual work at practice since then.
With the Colts, Collins was 48 of 98 for 481 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. He has now thrown for 40,922 career yards, 10th in NFL history after passing Joe Montana in Week 1. In 198 career games, Collins was 3,487 of 6,261 with 208 TDs and 196 interceptions.
That leaves Indy with three quarterbacks on the active roster — Curtis Painter, who took over as the starter when Collins was injured; Manning, the four-time league MVP; and veteran backup Dan Orlovsky, who recently re-signed with Indy after getting cut by the Colts at the end of training camp.
Wow, that last statement might have been enough to make Colts fans lose their lunch; or at least their appetite. Oh, who am I kidding? Have you ever been to Indianapolis? I mean, what else are you going to do in Indiana, stock up on guns and gold bullion and wait for the end of days?

What you are looking at in the above picture is surfer Sterling Spencer talking on his cellphone while surfing a barrel. Your move Joe Horn.

The Deuce happened upon these Jay Glazer tweet pics and just had to post for all to comment on them. Look at those friggin outfits. Wow. Glazer and Payton were in the Orpheus Parade this year and these were their outfits for that gigantic spectacle and man they are loving it huh? What is up with Sean Payton doing the metal devil horns sign, not very saintly. Also, I’m not exactly sure why Glazer is there but I am sure the reason why he is holding the Super Bowl trophy is because Payton is enjoying a tasty po’ boy and needed some latcher-on to hold the trophy for the Super Bowl Champion. The dialogue for this scenario in my head went something like this:
“Boy! I say boy! Hold this here trophy while I eat this sammich right here! Yes that’s right, now….oh snap, camera,” coughs and emits a high pitched Iron Maiden-esque voice “METAL!!!!!”
Here’s some more Payton and Glazer
Glazer’s caption to this photo sheds a bit more light on who the heck these other guys are in the picture:
Riding in the orpheus parade today w sean payton, mickey loomis, pat green, bobby hebert. What an unbelievable party!
Again, sweet friggin outfits but seriously…why the heck is Jay Glazer there? He’s no great New Orleans musician. He didn’t win anything this year. He isnt some great athlete from New Orleans’ past. He is just a reporter…kinda/sorta. And more devil horns or is he signing “love” all ‘gangsta’ style or somethin. Too many questions, just enjoy the pictures.

It’s bad enough that the sky is about to drop a Kraken-sized snow deuce on the East Coast and trap people inside their homes or local bars. The resulting cabin fever will be made worse by the realization that football is over. My Sundays are now pointless save the occasional Sunday Chelsea match that I’ll be able to use as a reason to start a marathon drinking session early in the morning.
The New Orleans Saints and their fans lucky enough to be in New Orleans still get to celebrate a Super Bowl win and Mardi Gras at the same time. They need to make it count like the 1980 New Orleans Saints. They knew how to party like Pacman Jones.
… The big problem was drugs. Years later Don Reese, a defensive lineman, talked about it to Sports Illustrated. Reese and running back Chuck Muncie were free-basing cocaine in training camp. Four games into the season, Muncie was traded when Coach Dick Nolan realized he was bad news.
… “It was raining and no one was in a good mood, ” he said. “After practice, Don Reese comes in and starts talking about how some of the veterans weren’t doing their job. It didn’t sit well with [Derland] Moore. One thing led to another. Suddenly, I’m watching the kind of fight they must have had in those wild-west saloons. This one was in an NFL locker room, no helmets, no pads, just bare knuckles and plenty of rage.”
… “I never punched anyone harder in my life,” said Moore. “I seriously wanted to kill that man. I was punching him so hard in his face his head cocked back and hit the cinder-block wall. He just got up and shook it off. You don’t do that without being on something.”
Reese, who was suspended for the final four games, said, “they had to gang up on me to hold me down. I was hysterical. I couldn’t stop fighting. I wanted to kill Moore. It was my messed up mind doing it, because I actually liked Derland Moore.”
Now that’s how you party! From now on, that’s how you party! The 1980 Saints were freebasing and brawling while being epic losers. Just imagine the potential of the 2009 Saints. Super Bowl champions. Mardi Gras. Tom Benson should be on the phone to Sen. David Vitter demanding that he deliver the choicest hookers Louisiana has to offer. Delivering constituent services is just as important as servicing lobbyists. Who dat indeed.
