For those of you who do not follow football, you may have missed a miracle this weekend!
The New Orleans Saints, football's worst team last year, is playing for the NFC Championship!
After the city was ravaged by Katrina, the Saints were forced to practice elsewhere, as the Superdome was almost destroyed by the storm and refugees within. They were constantly on the road and lost almost every game.
This season, they were back at home in the Superdome. Blessed with several outstanding rookies and an awesome quarterback, and backed by a city delighted to have them home, the Saints have played like a team with a mission!! They have done what NO other team has ever done, going from worst to almost best, and have united the city of New Orleans with their passion. It has been incredible to watch all season.
Therein lies the miracle - because when the dream's big enough, the facts don't count.
And I am pulling for the Saints to go all the way!!!
How fitting that today is Martin Luther King's Day, the man who made famous "I have a dream .."?
