Imagine for a moment that you’re a fan of a team that has gone 7-9 for three consecutive seasons. Oh, man, what a sad situation. Then imagine that your hated rival wins the division and tears through the postseason en route to the Super Bowl. Miserable, right?
So then imagine that rival — a team that swept your team in 2016 — blows a 25-point lead in the Super Bowl, and even though your team went 7-9 and hasn’t made the postseason since 2013 (and got knocked out by the 7-9 Seahawks) you still somehow suffer from enough cognitive dissonance to talk trash about your team’s rival.
Folks, in case you haven’t figured it out, I’m talking about the New Orleans Saints. That garbage team has done nothing but languish in mediocrity for years, but the good folks over at Canal Street Chronicles still have plenty to say about the NFC Champions from this season, your Atlanta Falcons.
Well, I’m a little scrappy, and I have a lot of things to say about the Saints, too. So does my esteemed colleague Matt Chambers. Chambers and I are teaming up to say some of these things to a couple of their writers via Facebook Live on the Canal Street Chronicles Facebook page at 7 p.m. ET today.
Look, I realize I’m asking you to visit the Canal Street Chronicles Facebook page, and I understand any hesitation. The Saints are the worst, and so is anything associated with that team. We all agree on this. But I promise that you do not want to miss this.
Y’all, it’s so on.
How many rings did y'all win this year though? https://t.co/rHn5kSOvl6— Jeanna (@jeannathomas) February 23, 2017

@jeannathomas But also can't say we blew a 25-point lead and had the Lombardi and Super Bowl ring literally ripped off our finger tho— Canal St. Chronicles (@SaintsCSC) February 23, 2017
