The trip started in Miami...

So in week 6 of the season, Shawn and I decided to postpone our trip around the world just in case the SAINTS went to the Superbowl. We though that leaving after Superbowl Sunday would be best so that we would not be leaving the South Pacific for the 1 and 32 chance that the SAINTS went to the Superbowl. People thought we were foolish to delay our trip, but on January 24, 2010 the SAINTS beat the Vikings in the NFC Championship which sent them to their first ever Superbowl. So me, along with 7 members of my family, dressed in our best SAINTS garb and headed to Miami to watch the underdog SAINTS take on the "unstoppable" Colts. It was a Christmas present from my dad and I am so glad that I had my family there to watch the game with me. I even got to talk to my mom after key plays from the stadium. We yelled, we cheered (some more loudly than others), we tried to engage Colts fans in a little rivalry (they said they are too refined to cheer), we cried (even me) and on February 7, 2010, the NEW ORLEANS SAINTS beat the Indianapolis Colts 31-17 proving to the world that they are THE BEST FOOTBALL TEAM IN THE WORLD! It was the happiest day of my life! Next stop: Fiji!
