Banished Saints Head Coach and occasional conga man Sean Payton is apparently on the motivational circuit, and he has been speaking to the enemy. But, at least he was funny. North Texas is gearing up for next weekend's season opening showdown next weekend in Death Valley with the LSU Tigers, so they invited the Saints' suspended coach to give them a little advice. Turns out, Payton is still coaching.
I leave here in about in half an hour and I go to a sixth-grade practice. I've got kids looking at dandelions and picking their boogers. I'm trying to put in 50 plays. You ought to see the offense we got. We scrimmaged last week and we gutted this team we played. I called up my friend Jon Gruden. I said, "Gru Dog, man, we just gutted this team. They didn't stop a play we just ran.
Meanwhile, Payton's replacement to his replacement Aaron Kroemer is preparing for tonight's fake game vs the Houston America's Cows by handing out bro nicknames to everyone he comes into contact with. Fans aren't sure how much they'll see of "Drew Dog" or any of the Saints' starters this evening. More likely they're most looking forward to the halftime update on Isaac from Giant Bob Breck via the jumbotron.
As for ourselves, we'll be evaluating the performance of our new plastic flask at the Superdome gate because.. we paid for these tickets anyway, right?
