Monday Night Football

When it comes to sports I believe the hype. Tonight the New Orleans Saints returned to the Superdome, a year and a month after Hurricane Katrina. It was one of the most hyped Monday Night games ever. Reggie Bush would square off against Michael Vick. So I was glued to the screen.

Even the opening minutes were insane. The Saints blocked a punt and ran it back for a touchdown right away and the place went nuts. The Saints are KILLING the Falcons, so the game itself was a blowout.

Spike Lee was in the house, U2 and Green Day played, but who do they have opening the game withthe coin toss ? George H.W.M.F. Bush.

The same Bush who's son totally botched the post-Katrina emergency and who's wife goes on TV saying :

"Almost everyone I've talked to says, 'We're gonna move to Houston.' What I'm hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas... Everybody is so overwhelmed by the hospitality, and so many of the people in the arenas here, you know, were underprivileged anyway. This is working very well for them."

Unfuckingbelieveable! How can he show his face in New Orleans ?
