WHEREAS, the Falcons organization has never experienced two winning seasons in a row; and
WHEREAS, having earned an 11-5 record in 2008, a win Sunday will earn the Falcons their first successful back-to-back winning seasons in franchise history; and
WHEREAS, the Saints, being the Falcons' oldest rivals, have given Atlanta fans cause for joy and despair in roughly equal measure; and
WHEREAS, Saints fans this year have enjoyed an excess of elation over the thus-far-successful campaign of their team, and are in a magnanimous mood;
THEREFORE, we, the undersigned Saints fans and members of Canal Street Chronicles, wish to redress the balance, and extend to Falcons fans everywhere, and in particular to those members of The Falcoholic, our heartiest best wishes for a triumphant outcome in Sunday's game, and a successful conclusion to the Atlanta Falcons' quest for back-to-back winning seasons. No, really.
