Even Snarky Stacy Head Should Be Forgiven a Little Indiscretion

Look, I'm not a big fan of Stacy Head. Not a fan at all. I didn't vote for her in the original race for the seat.

But cheesh. This email business ain't right.

Like any redblooded American, I read the few emails posted here at nola.com.

The stuff I'm reading in these emails--it sounds like a normal person with normal questions and the First Amendment right to be snarky.

What's wrong with that?

Tracie Washington disgusts me.

In the age of email and Twitter, either we all have to be indulgent of one another's foibles and moments of snark, or no one will ever be eligible for a job or politics or membership in a church.

Steps Have Been Taken

I have been informed that certain fans of the Black and Gold have initiated efforts with benign supernatural forces to ensure a Black and Gold Super Bowl in Miami 2010.

Last year, when similar efforts were made, the Saints went from 3-5 in the Dome to 5-2 (6-2 if you count the London game).

This year, the efforts have been intensified so as to achieve a 10-0 home record (8 regular season, then a bye week, plus two playoff wins).

Two Saints Players Make Like Norman Robinson

So two benchwarming Saints players made like Norman Robinson last night by urinating publicly in an Elmwood apartment complex parking lot.

Lovely.

Not world class.

A few brief thoughts:
  • Let he among us who has not sinned thusly, cast the first stone.
  • I can almost guarantee that this kind of behavior was MORE common on Saints teams in the 60s and 70s, with players like Doug Atkins, Steve Stonebreaker, and Danny Abramowicz around.
  • I hope that the next time something like this happens in Orleans Parish, I don't read or hear comments about how trashy the city is. These two goofs marked their territory in Jefferson Parish this time. And you know it's going on in suburban Dallas and Houston and St. Louis and Miami.
