    The family and I went to a Christmas party for my wife's side of the family yesterday. They are mostly USC grads and fans.

    I had my LSU hat, LSU socks and LSU jacket on amongst the enemy. That was fun ! They talked about the plane tickets they had purchased, the phone calls they made to me 2 weeks ago about where to stay in New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl etc.

    Then it was time to eat. I was asked to bless the food and say the prayer. With LSU and USC fans holding hands for prayer, it went something like this:

    Dear Jesus,

    We are all thankful for Christmas because without your birth and you in our lives' there would be no Christmas. We thank you for all you have done and continuing to show us the true meaning of Christmas.

    Finally and most importantly Father we ask for a LSU win and a USC loss ! Amen.

    Needless to say the crowd wearing purple and gold were on their feet while the USC fans chuckled.

    Another sign God's a Tiger fan--the priests are wearing purple and gold.

    Not that I'm the very religious type--raised and baptised Catholic, but it's not like I attend church every week (or month for that matter) :) ...but I've always thought of name "Saints" to be sacreligious. I mean, you have a team that grown men are trying to break the other in half, cussing up a storm....and then that team is NAMED the SAINTS?!

    I've grown up a diehard Saints fan--but I"m starting to feel as if they're getting what they deserve. Shouldn't have picked a name like that.

    ...oh well....at least we have the TIGAHS!!!!

    I think what happenned to the Saints is a good sign. God is focusing on the Tigers and is saving all his influence for them.

    God works in strange ways sometimes.

    I hope he is wearing his LSU jacket come jan.4th.

    The Saints name is perfect for them. Most Saints were martyred. Which is what this team is best at. They just lay down and die!!

    Rick, no doubt. Their franchise is cursed. I'm a huge Saints fan but didn't watch the game for the 1st time all season. I was getting headaches every Sunday. The mrs. asked me if anything else caused you pain would you continue? Good point. No Saints game yesterday, no headache.

    Ready for the Tigers. Got my plane tickets in hand (still need tickets to the game).

    Geaux Tigers !
