In which I take all the best news, quotes, pictures and everything else Saints-related toss it together and serve it up for our readers. This week we’ll be tackling the Saints (1—1) week 3 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers at home in the dome. There's a lot to cover this week, we got injuries and benched veterans and sympathy vodka, OH MY!

  • Best Place To Watch the Game that's not the Superdome: ACME Oyster House in the French Quarter. Feeling adventurous? Head down to the oyster house and see how much shellfish you can scarf down between kickoff and the final whistle. Or you could take an oyster shooter for every field goal or touchdown.

  • Best Game-Related Storyline to Follow: J.T. O'Sullivan returns to New Orleans and ... throws for five touchdowns in a win? Is intercepted 3 times, sacked 4 times and fumbles in a loss? Takes a folding chair to Sean Payton's back, chugs some Killian's and screams "O'Sullivan Rules!" Your guess is as good as mine.
  • Best Non-Game-Related Storyline to Follow: Do you think Sean Payton reads the blogs out in the Whodatsphere and thinks, "You know, maybe I should stem my 'deucebaggery', the fans really seem to like this guy"? Or maybe he's thinking, "F*** these basement dwellers! It is I, Payton the Prince that holds the power! YESSS...THE POWER!!!! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH" --- er, uh, what just happened? I think I just blacked out.



  • Best Random Piece of Saints Merchandise: I might as well just go to eBay every time for this part. This item today is a confusing as it is random. It's listed as "MAKER'S MARK Makers Mark New Orleans Saint NFL" but, as you can see, the bottle doesn't make any reference to the Saints or the NFL. Incidentally, neither does the post. So what does this have to do with the Saints? Well, the bid says you can't drink the contents as part of the deal. Which is silly. Saints fans will need to drink some whiskey if the Saints lose.
  • Best Local Artist to Listen to Before/After Game: Master P. He's the original New Orleans rap mogul and he's got absolutely the most ridiculous pad in the history of ridiculous pads. Plus he's always repped New Orleans sports teams. Unlike some other local artists...
  • Best Media Blowhard to Poke Fun At: Hey, look! L'il Wayne is writing a blog for ESPN the Magazine. How nice. I wonder if he'll say anything about the Saints' game this week. What's that? No mention of the game? Surely he's excited about the Hornets opening camp, right? No? Yea, this could be interesting.
