This is how serious the Superbowl is in New Orleans

My boss just handed me a legal document to read over. It's an order for pushing back a trial. I'm going to quote it verbatim here:

"Considering the historic victory of the New Orleans Saints, the Court finds that the trial will not be able to proceed as originally scheduled.  The Court takes judicial notice that Saintsmania (I swear to God that word appears in the order) permeates the City of New Orleans.  Many prospective jurors for the Parish of Orleans, several attorneys involved in this litigation and Court personnel planon traveling to the promise land-the Superbowl in Miami, Florida. The Court recognizes that this pilgrimage enhances the chances of the Who Dat Nation to acquire the long sought after Holy Grail-the Vince Lombardi Trophy."  Then the continuation is granted, and it's signed by a real judge. I'm not making this up.

    Ha! That's kind of awesome.

    It reminds me of the year a few years ago when St. Patrick's day fell on a Friday during Lent, and all of the Catholic decision makers (sorry I fail at knowing who's in charge of that stuff, I don't think it went as far as the Pope though) said that you couldn't eat meat on Fridays, except for St. Patty's because corn beef and cabbage is a more important tradition. 

    At least that's how H explained it, don't flame please :)

    Dani, Peyton Manning is one of my favorite football players ever. So is Drew Brees. So I'm pulling for the offense during the Superbowl :) I've loved the Colts for years and I'm so glad they're playing the Saints. I think it'll be one of the best football games I've ever seen.

    When I lived in Louisiana, I tried to renew my license on my birthday, which fell on Mardi Gras that year. The DMV was closed, as was every other government office. Don't plan on getting anything done then, either!

    Yeah, pretty much everyone around here loves the Saints too so a few people I know have been struggling and will just be happy no matter who wins, which I think makes it more fun and exciting.  I mean, it's great to play your rivals, but it's also great to play a team that you love and that loves your QB.  It should be a good game!

    In Super Bowl news, some of you guys might find this funny (if dorky):
    http://www.artsjournal.com/man/2010/01/art_museum_director_super_bowl.html

    The art museums of the two cities have set up a wager based on the outcome of the Super Bowl.

    I'm just rooting for a good game. I don't have strong feelings about either team, and I thought last year was one of the most exciting games I've ever seen, so if it gets to that level, that would be cool.

    I love that Saintsmania, Who Dat Nation, and Holy Grail are all mentioned in this one legal document.

    Missy, you definitely can't get ANYTHING done on or around Mardi Gras. It's insanity and people take it way seriously.

    Known thereafter as "The Great Saint Patrick's Day Fight of 2007" (not really, but it could have been). It goes by Bishop & Diocese: I was flying between Chicago & San Francisco that day, so if I'd wanted Corned Beef for breakfast (ugh) I could have had it then-- but not for dinner.

    (Of course, sometimes you have days of equal "importance" coinciding...In 2005, Good Friday fell on the feast of the Annunciation (March 25th). In the middle ages, that was always taken as an omen of the end of the world... being a medieval historian, I was a little disappointed in the lack of a response.)

    As for the Super Bowl legal response... wow. Just, wow. But, then, having been in Chicago in 2007, I can believe it.

    My dad and I (and I'm sure a million other people) always called the Saints the Aints when they were bad.  It still makes me giggle though.

    Yeah Coco, that's what killed me too: all the dramatic wording. Proves lawyers do have a sense of humor :) and Meaghan, I kind of thought it was a joke until my assured me that it definitely wasn't. The lawyer who wrote the document is one of my boss's friends. They swear up and down it's real.

    It's true, Morfudd. Fat Tuesday is the sixteenth, a mere 9 days after the Superbowl. It's a good year to live in New Orleans. Or an hour away in Baton Rouge, like me.

    I hate the Colts because they gave up perfection just to rest a few guys. I hope the football gods reign their fury down. I like Peyton, though, I just want them to lose. It would have been sweet justice if they lost to the Jets last Sunday.

    Wait, so that's not a proposed order but one that's already been entered???  Wow, I'm very impressed with that Judge - good for him for not being all high-and-mighty.

  • Options
    I have to root for the Colts, because the Saints beat my beloved Vikings and I just can't bring myself to root for the guys who kept us out of the Superbowl.

    Also, Peyton Manning is f*cking HILARRRRIOUS in every commercial and skit he's ever been in.

    Nuggs, that's also why I love Peyton so much too. He's a friggin Boy Scout and hilarious to boot. And humble, even though he's one of the most talented athletes in the history of the NFL. But then, Drew Brees is also beyond sweet. I love both of them and I honestly don't care who wins. I'm kind of a bandwaggon Saints fan as well. Believe me, I was the first to poke fun at them when they sucked most of my life.

    And yes T1, the order has already been signed and the trial has been pushed back. It was signed by the judge yesterday.

    We can't root for the Saints in our house because of my BF's hate for the Kardashian clan.  He can't get behind any team that has some sort of affiliation with that family.

    Lauren- I would have a hard time believing you too, if my lawyer aunt hadn't drafted up something similar to get one of her trials pushed back to after the Superbowl. Anyone that isn't a Saints fan just doesn't get that

    New Orleanians+ The Saints+ Superbowl= ABSOLUTE INSANITY.

    I am pretty sure they are going to try and shut down the city the day after the Superbowl!

    New Orleans will be craaaaaazy, whether they win or not. Actually, I can't imagine the insanity that will ensure if they do win.

    And Smokey, Kim Kardashian is clearly a self centered nut job if she thinks ANYONE will be paying any sort of attention to her at the Superbowl. I mean yeah, she's Reggie Bush's girlfriend and all, but seriously, NO ONE CARES. Or maybe it's that she knows everyone hates and her and wants to kill her which is why she feels a need to have a tank drive her around Miami.
