At my house, we're officially members of the "Who Dat" Nation!

I’m amazed (but not really) at how a sports team brings people together.

Last night in Lafayette, Sarah bought this Saints Superbowl flag at Academy Sporting Goods in Lafayette.  In the checkout line, about 7 out of 10 customers seemed to be buying Saints stuff.  And everybody was so good-natured and friendly–I struck up the most cordial conversation with a rank stranger in the line behind me about which other NFL teams had never made the Super Bowl (the Browns and the Lions, notably)–Just mention “Saints,” it seems, and “whoever” becomes your bosom buddy.

Hmmmmm . . . how can we apply this sports principle to politics and religion?
