Who Dat?

Last night served as a microcosm of why many of us would like a career in sports. The New Orleans Saints defeated the favored Indianapolis Colts 31-17 to win their first Super Bowl. Saints fans started the party in Miami, but in New Orleans fans spilled on to Bourbon Street and hugged, kissed, and celebrated their team's accomplishment.

However, the fact that a football team could lift the collective spirits of so many in a city that only 4 years ago was ruined by Hurricane Katrina is exactly what is right about sports. With hope, a number of us in SMBA '11 will experience a national championship and the feeling of a city coming together as one for a team we're working for in the future.
