We’ve waited three long months for a reprieve from the sweltering heat. During those months, we took time to enjoy everything summer has to offer, but in the hottest moments, I daydreamed about that sweet spot in the late fall and early winter when the weather is perfect. Patiently, we all waited for that season to arrive.

The Saints’ prospects are interesting to say the least. For the last several seasons, we’ve been stuck in a 7-9 rut, but that was all without the most prolific running back in the country.

Next month, we’ll see the weather turn cooler, and our triple-header of holidays — Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Hanukkah or Christmas — will begin. For now, we’ll rest in memory of the sweltering heat of the past and all the good things to come.

It looks like Ed Orgeron has put together a great team this year

over at LSU. Bleacher Report called our running back, Derrius Guice, and our top defensive lineman, Arden Key, “human highlight reels.” That’s high praise, and I’ve looked forward all year to seeing them take to the
