Saintsational Night at the Superdome

Tonight the New Orleans Saints played Monday Night Football in N.O. and I was honored to be offered a ticket from friends! It was a record-setting game for N.O., who slammed the Green Bay Packers 51-29.

Records set and interesting game notes:

1. Deuce McAllister scored on a 3-yard run Monday night for his 54th career touchdown. His third-quarter TD gave the Saints a 38-21 lead against the Green Bay Packers and broke Dalton Hilliard's mark, which he tied a week earlier in Kansas City.

2. Saints QB Drew Brees now has 3,574 passing yards through 11 games. Brees passed for 323 yards and four TDs.

A couple of years ago, I met Deuce at a work event for Nissan in Canton, MS. I am not crazy about the above picture of myself with him (and am pretty sure Bethanie will grumble if she sees it, too), but given tonight's win, I had to post it. :-)

Geaux Saints, and thanks to Shanehan, Paula, Dan, Ty, Stacey, Keith and Toya for including me in on the big night!
