L'il Wayne: Not a True Saints Fan

Last week I pointed out that the best media blowhard to make fun of was L'il Wayne for completely omitting any reference to his hometown Saints. I was not alone as many people on his ESPN blog wondered in the comments section as to why he didn't mention the Black and Gold.


Well, L'il Wayne's second blog post is up now and he offers an explanation (albeit a weak one):


People were also asking in the blog comments why don't I like the Saints? I do like the Saints, but I'm not a Saints fan first, and that's only because that shows my true love for sports. I'm not just gonna choose a favorite team just 'cause that's my city. The only reason why I'm a Saints fan is because that's my city, but I'm a true Packers fan.


You read that right, L'il Wayne is "not a Saints fan first." Maybe this is part of L'il Wayne's erratic behavior of late — that is to say, Wayne's "slide into normalcy" since the release of "Tha Carter III". I don't buy it though, mostly because "normal" behavior in New Orleans is certainly not to root for the Green Bay Packers (I'm guessing he latched on to them when they won the Super Bowl in the 90s).


Either way, you bet I'm going to be the first in line to question L'il Wayne's motives if the Saints go deep into the playoffs and we start seeing him sporting a Bush jersey on the sidelines in the Superdome.
