~Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls… dying time's here.
Welcome back to ass-kicking season, bitches. I don't know about you, but it seems to me Drew's looking a little nervous there. And why shouldn't he be? After all, THE WHOLE DAMN TEAM IS IN TURMOIL! Or something. The Saints are entering the 2012 season amidst UNPRECEDENTED CIRCUMSTANCES! And what in the hell would Drew Brees know about unprecedented? Clearly we're screwed. The Saints will be lucky not to have completely imploded by Halloween. Dozens of national Legitimate Media™ types can't possibly be wrong on this.
Fortunately for us, there will be plenty of time over the next six months or so for us to troll them and focus on how they suck, as the wins continue to mount and they become increasingly baffled and belligerent. Oh, it's gonna be big fun. Wait for it… wait for it…
