Battered woman syndrome OR Saints fan?
Much like a woman who has suffered from physical or emotional abuse, a Saints fan knows what it is like to hope for the best but to receive the worst. Again and again.
The Saints just ran onto the field and I am wavering between hope and the need to lower my expectations.
In the way that the entire state has enjoyed Super Bowl fever these past 2 weeks, I feel the Saints have already won. If it is an evenly played game, I'll be happy.
Not sure if I am hormonal,
a big pile of nerves or
more excited than I thought
but tearing up at the team's entry, the crowd's increased volume of cheering when military posts are shown and Queen Latifah's voice.
The game starts in 6 minutes.
