So anyway, guess what the top story was on the NBC Nightly News.

That's right -- Brian Williams, who reported all over the city during Katrina, was talking about the New Orleans Saints winning the most-watched TV event, let alone Super Bowl, in history. Those folks placing the TV ads sure got the ultimate bang for their buck. And this one event sold the most newspapers in the history of the Times-Picayune.

I still can't believe this team won the Super Bowl after 43 years of being the worst franchise in NFL history. The team was so bad, their fans used to wear paper bags over their heads in shame. I guess they won't be needing them anymore.

All I have to say is, if the Saints can win it, there's hope yet for the Detroit Lions. Just you wait -- the day will come when we see the Lions parading around Motown with the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

For right now, though, I'm thinking maybe they ought to import some discarded paper bags from New Orleans for the Lions fans to wear over their heads.
