Funny thing, going into this Saints-San Fran game, I was behind the Saints all the way. I think New Orleans has a great team, and their Super Bowl win of a couple years ago stays with me. I was dismayed by the tug-and pull of this particular game yesterday, with one team ahead, and then another. In the last few seconds, I couldn't believe my eyes as Vernon Davis of the 49ers caught an unbelievably bold pass at the touchdown line. I thought for sure the Saints had it clinched.
Then I saw the emotion of the game in Davis' face. This huge man started crying like a child, and, embraced by his coach and teammates, showed this chick what it's all about. I saw the sign held up by a 49ers fan in the audience that said simply "Our time 2 shine". And I understood. I was glad the 49ers won, not to take anything away from New Orleans. But I do believe it IS their time to shine. Congratulations, San Francisco.
Now for your "feel good" video of the day:
