The Super Bowl season for the Saints more than made up for the 42 years of futility and woulda coulda shoulda's. Although some of the following may be a reach in terms of the unexplained and "divine intervention", I'm attempting to put together a complete list and appreciate any additional items of relevance (or other details relating to items below): 1. Both Saints (13) and Colts (14) started off 13-0, which I think is the only time in NFL history for two teams. After week 6 (or so) of this year, every NFL team had a loss. 2. Both Saints (Vilma) and Colts (Garcon) had players from Haiti and SB was held only a few months after the devastating earthquake. Guessing there weren't many other Haitians in the NFL. 3. Clinching play from SB 44 was a pass from one New Orleans native to another, intercepted by a third Louisiana native. 4. Drew Brees and his story, highlights include the birth of his first son on his 30th bday (Jan 09), his mother's suicide during training camp (Aug 09), his 2nd son conceived during playoff run, Bacchus, throwing passes during season to Pres #44 (i.e. SB 44) and countless other correlations. 5. Fact that it snowed in various parts of Louisiana 2-3 times during playoff run. Had that ever happened as often in the past? 6. NFL picks a kid months before each SB to bring the coin to referee for coin toss. The SB 44 kid (girl) was from New Orleans and a big Saints fan. Even more strange was that her parents used to babysit for Peyton Manning. This little I know of this connection was mentioned during the SB pre-game and would appreciate any additional info. 7. Garrett Hartley mentioning after kicking the FG against the Vikings that he called his dad at 2am that morning to say he thought he was going to kick a 40 yd game winner from the right hash. It was actually a 42 yd FG from the right hash, which goes to show premonitions have a sampling error of +/- 2 yds. 8. The playoff run included beating 3 HOF QB's, including Favre & Peyton who grew up Saints fans. 9. Rickey Jackson becoming first HOF inductee for Saints shortly after SB, which was even a bit of a surprise for him (although Saints run probably helped his cause). 10. Regular season game against Dolphins (site of SB) and ginormous comeback from down 24-3. Crazy win in nation's capital and big one over Pats on MNF. Necessary loss against Cowboys (no need to chase undefeated) and that late FG that clanged off the crossbar.
