Only caught the second half, as my dumb @ss booked a business flight during the superbowl (no wonder that flight was so cheap). But what a game! Good on the Saints. They deserve it.

Yeah...I'm proud the Saints won!

Roger Daltry should have stayed at the home though.

Ecstatic the Saints won!!! New Orleans deserves some good luck finally!

Kinda wish someone other than The Who was the half-time entertainment, but the light display around them was neat.

It's going to be CRAZY here for days! This is the week leading up to Mardi Gras, too!!! And we got a new mayor by a landslide yesterday. The parade for the Saints from the Superdome is on Tuesday. We have our regular Carnival parades every day too. So many celebrations!

Thank you, all you Saints fans!

Right now, Bourbon St. is packed. Here in my neighborhood, lots of loud fireworks and dancing in the streets. It means a lot to our city.

Fantastic game, and the scenes from the French Quarter look like there is going to be a LOT of partying tonight. Louisiana businesses can expect a lot of people calling in sick tomorrow.

A lot of businesses are closing down tomorrow because of the game. Frank didn't have to work today because of it.

Thanks, Audrey!! I am so proud for our city.

Geaux Saints!!!
You're right W2R. I can hear the fireworks here too! They started going off after the interception and run back for the touchdown. I still can't believe it but I always knew they had something special going for them.
They played well and deserved all they got this year.
Hey wait, what is that I see outside......it's pigs flying, lots of them and the devils are wearing fur coats

Agree completely, a very good game. I actually like the commercials the Dorrito ad's actually generated laughter in the room. I thought the Google ad was masterful.

I'd also really want to thank Tracy Porter who's interception was why I won $700 for the Superbowl squares pool, sweet.

W2R, I finally figured out what your new avatar represents when I watched the game tonight.

Congratulations to the Saints and all of New Orleans!
