If you go to the College Inn, you will see on the wall a quote from Dr. John through which he describes our Katrina experience (I believe): "I am traumaticalized."

In Dr. John's style of language, Berto and I developed a word (fueled by bloody doubles) to describe what's going on in New Orleans and with Our New Orleans Saints over the past few weeks:


Who has looked pretty damn good over the past 10 days?
The Army Corps of Engineers
Devery Henderson
Even Mayor Curly has had some really good moments--although I agree with Adrastos and others that the "mother of all storms" speech was irresponsible.

If the above examples aren't reversification, I don't know what is.

Berto and I have been practicing and noticing reversification in a variety of ways, and it works.

Just one example: the jumpsuits are now shorties.  The result?  A big Saints win.  Also, improbably, the ladies seem to like the shorties.

And so on.

(It's all a bit reminiscent of the "Seinfeld" episode "The Opposite."  Except that instead of the phenomenon working for one lowly George Costanza, it's working for an entire metropolitan area and the culture of an entire city.)

Reversification, I believe, results in de-traumaticalization.

Hey, New Orleans, change things up--but just a little.

Let's all get de-traumaticalized.

Yeah, let me in on this de-traumaticalization through reversification. Just need a few instructions: how to reversificate the stache? Was the use of fingernail super glue to avert a pre-game adhesive mishap just standard operating procedure or reversification?

Based on what I just read on ESPN, we better hope for the reversification of Devery Henderson's pass catching abilities for the next 4-6 weeks. Rather than balls seeming to eject themselves from his hands, they will need to stick like glue.

Maybe Jason David was kept on the team to replace Colston because he's good at avoiding tackles (except I have a feeling that he plays defense because he can't catch.)


oH NO! not again.

It's hurts so good i don't understand..........
