And then there were four…

Congratulations to the Saints on a tremendous season and a well-deserved championship to bring back to the city of New Orleans.

The Saints’ victory tonight in Super Bowl XLIV leaves just four teams (out of 32) who have not participated in any of the NFL’s first 44 Super Bowls.

The Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars at least have an excuse as expansion franchises, but long-suffering fans of the Cleveland Browns and Detroit Lions have to look at the celebration tonight in Miami (and on Bourbon Street) and wonder when – if ever – they will experience the opportunity to erase years of ignominy.

But that’s for another day.  The Saints are the “Aints” no more.  And Mardi Gras might just be only the second-biggest party in Louisiana this February.
