This, ladies and gentleman, is what the Saints were always working for.

The ESPYs were tonight and ESPN.com is saying that the Saints "stole the show" by winning "Best Team" and with Drew Brees winning "Best Male Athlete." Brees thanked his wife, coach Sean Payton, his offensive line and "Who Dat Nation" and entire city of New Orleans broke out into a spontaneous mid-summer Mardi Gras (or something).

Brees also won the coveted "Best NFL Player" and "Best Championship Performance" trophies, the awards that truly define great players and whose histories line the walls of the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Don't let anyone fool you, these awards mean something. It's a time for the common fan to vote on which athletes that have already won trophies in their sports (by actually playing them) deserve more trophies, and which athletes that didn't get trophies by playing sports are lucky enough to get some trophies anyway.

Or not. I don't think any athlete takes getting an ESPY seriously. But I bet they get some serious awards show schwag and its a chance to canoodle with celebrities, so I guess it's all in good fun (though from recent viewings, I'd the ESPYs are decidedly un-fun). It was funny that one year, though. Good times.
