So, last night's nationally-televised game between the New York Giants and the New Orleans Saints was one for the ages, huh?  Especially if you were a Saints fan....

I know that the Saints were favored by a touchdown going into this matchup and yes, they were coming off a bye week.... but DAMN!  Drew Brees and his boys simply took it to the Giants, practically moving the ball and scoring at will en route to a 49-24 stomping of Big Blue.  Trust me, it wasn't even close.  Even at the very end of the game, when the game was well out of hand, the Saints continued to lay the smackdown, scoring a unnecessary but "in-your-face" touchdown with about a minute to play.  

I guess coach Sean Payton was sending a message to his former team.  I'll let you fill in the blank as to what that message was.

TONIGHT:  Dollar Draft Madness ($1 Bud/Bud Lt. mugs ALL NIGHT LONG) highlights a great sports night at Third and Long.  With the NY Rangers hosting Sidney Crosby & the Pittsburgh Penguins, and great NCAA hoops headlined by the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, it should be a great night out with the friends/co-workers!

See you then!

I know of at least one poor shmuck who put $20 on the under of 51, hoping the NY Giants defense would slow down Mr. Brees and Co.
