HOW DAT, Y'ALL?

How y’all like the way dem Saints tamed dem Colts last night?

And I just have to say this:

Dem Saints ain’t no ain’ts no mo!!!!

As I said before, I’m not a football-watching fool, but the Saints playing a Super Bowl game was history-in-the-making, so I had to be part of that.

And here’s how we partied . . .

I dried and fried the wings.  First batch became buffalo style . . .

second batch became honey barbecue.  Mmmm finger-licking good.

And then there was crab dip and shrimp dip and Ruffles!!!  Of course, we had some healthy appetizers to offset all the unhealthy party foods!

And then Danno got down to some serious grilling out on his little patio.  The anticipation was building for both food and the game at this point!

He grilled two kinds of sausage made by a local market . . . green onion and jalapeno.  Tasty stuff.

Then he handed off to me, and I grilled the onion burgers.

Then he went long and finished up the barbecued chicken breasts.

They sent me back in on the steak play, where I  seared these really quick.

After our pigskins were stretched to the limit, it was GAME ON!

There they were.  The three brothers (poor Daboo was stuck on the boat), anticipating the first Saints score.  By this time, the Colts had galloped all over the Saints, leaving a hoof print here and there, but not for long . . .

TOUCHDOWN, SAINTS!!!!!

SAINTS SCORE AGAIN!!!!!!

Looking good for the Who Dat Nation!

GAME OVER!!!!

WHO DAT GROUP HUG!!!  Nothing like a great football game for male bonding and brotherly love, right?

There is no photo of the winning score screen shot because the boys were too busy jumping up and down in front of the TV.  And I was too busy watching them and laughing with them!  Amazing!

And one last time.  Saint’s ARE number one, y’all.  It only took 43 years of team history, and 44 years of Super Bowl history for this to happen.  And even though I’m not a football fan, I can say it was worth the wait!

As we walked outside, there were more fireworks than New Year’s Eve, horns honking, cow bells clanging, people yelling and screaming.  I’ve never heard anything like it!

And now the new slogan should be “HOW DAT?”

Pretty dog-gone good, dat’s how.

PS:  We had to share Dotter and MuzicMan with his family the second half.  Wish they would have been able to stay!  It was CRAZY fun!!!!

PPS:  We overslept today, AND the school bus never showed up!  I had to drive the boys (under protest) to school . . 22 miles away!  I guess all the other kids got a free day off.  Must have been some party last night!

  1. The Saints won the superbowl! NO school today! I hear the Colt’s fans could only blame a snow day to get the day off.

    I wish I had been there thats a fine looking spread ya’ll be feasting on. Chili was great, and I am still paying the price! I know too much info there but “Come On Ice Cream!”

  2. How about those SAINTS? That was a fun second half of the game and like BW I am not a fan of football. I do enjoy a good Super Bowl party.

    I received my Community Coffee Friday afternoon and enjoyed a cup before going to the Super Bowl party at a friends house. The to go cup is really neat and fun.

    Thanks again Judy

  3. I was in San Antonio when the Spurs won the NBA Finals a few years ago, it was CRAZY fun. I can only imagine what the Superbowl win was like in the bayou.

    • Honey, the Saints came home at 4:00 and the REAL party just started in the big city!!! I have a friend there producing live feed for Fox News, and she says it is CRAZY WILD right now!!!!!!!

  4. It was crazy loud after the game around here too. Fireworks, car horns, and screaming. Hubby and his cousin laughed their tails off at me. When the Saints went ahead, I jumped up and did a “happy dance”. BTW, the ONLY thing I had to drink was 2 cups of Community Coffee. When I finally got in bed last night, my face was hurting from grinning so much!
    Saints “Ain’ts” No Mo!

  5. My husband is a Cowboy fan but, he was cheering for the Saints.
    Man, those wings looked good and so did that sausage. My little rotisserie got a good work out and we had some very good chicken along with a huge baked potato. I think hubby munched on the fresh pico off and on all thru the game. I even had some bread pudding to finish up on.

  6. I’m glad for the Saint’s win, but TOTALLY jealous that there is somewhere in the US that people can actually grill food outside, and not have snow up to their knees!!

    Nice post and pics, BW
