Welp, everything sure is going according to the plan so far, don't you think? High five? Guh. Regular readers know that we try to keep it classy here at moosedenied. And hey, let me be perfectly clear here, I'm as shocked and appalled and righteously indignant about this whole sordid affair as the next guy. Please believe me when I tell you that, as a Saints fan, I feel like the team let us all down here. I'm incredibly disappointed with Our Heroes right about now, and I'm even more disappointed with Sean Payton and Mickey Loomis.
I'm disappointed that they got caught.

This summer, he and two business partners plan to open a grocery store called Sterling Farms, the first of several in New Orleans’s low-income neighborhoods, where supermarkets are scarce.
