Who Dat Sey Dey Gonna Beat Dem Saints!

I almost can't believe it - even though I really do believe in the New Orleans Saints.

When they Saints go marching in.... Too bad I can' beam over and be on Bourbon Street this night. It surely is being flooded - by cheers this time, by partying, by celebration. The "fleur de lis" made it to Football heaven!

This is a victory not only for an astonishing team, it is a victory for the whole city and people people who cherish it, restore it and rebuild it by investing their hearts in it. I've been there, and I felt what a great city it is. And I'll come back, that's a promise.

In the end, Peyton - that son of New Orleans area who has grown to be one of the greatest quarterbacks up there in Indy - could not outcoach and outcall Mr. Payton. The coach on the field needed to give in to the team he usually cheers for, a team with many great people - Payton, Bush, Porter, Vilma, and of course their own quarterback - they call him the Brees...

I'm not sure I really have fully realized that "my" Saints have actually done it and WON the Super Bowl in their first attempt ever to do so.

Who Dat!

The phrase "Who dat" is copyrighted, and as such, needs a trademark symbol after it (at least in the US, not sure if it applies in Austria). Other than that BS, I'm not much of a fan of football, but still interesting to know of a team that has never won the superbowl in all these 44 years.

In Europe a trademark symbol has NO legal meaning, and as such, it is not required at all.

Ohappy for you, KaiRo
well KaiRo, I'm happy for you that the Saints won the superbowl.

btw, Firefox 3.7a1 candidate builds have been posted on the Mozilla FTP server as I've just checked today. hope you and the Seamonkey council team can start preparing the Seamonkey 2.1a1 candidate builds soon.

A phrase cannot be copyrighted, only its use for marketing products can be. So whatever you are trying to say is quite some BS by itself.

@EP:
It's not "Firefox 3.7 Alpha 1", it's a "Mozilla Developer Preview 1" that is there to test the Mozilla platform improvements which are common to all application building on the Mozilla 1.9.3 platform - it just is mostly useless to ship the platform alone for testing, so this testing release comes with the Firefox UI and some internal version number that incidentally fits that application series.
If SeaMonkey 2.1 will be based on 1.9.3, this preview release is a much a testing field for SeaMonkey 2.1 as for Firefox 3.7/4.0/whatever (they haven't decided on a version number for it yet). It's not even decided yet that SeaMonkey 2.1 will be released on that platform, even though it's somewhat likely. When we will ship an alpha will fully depend on when we have something in our own application for users to test - and right now we are a bit thin on that. We welcome help on the planned new features though, that is all that could speed up making a first Alpha.

Above all that, all this entry was trying to do is cheering for this great game win. Not every piece of my life is related to SeaMonkey or Mozilla - and, btw, Planet Mozilla is about the people in the Mozilla project, not just the part of their lives they spend working on that project. Being a football and Saints fan or a space nut is about as much a part of me as my SeaMonkey work.

exactly, KaiRo. don't know what Havvy was thinking. I mean copyrighted by whom? does Havvy have substanial evidence to back his claim? I didn't think so.

Even though FF 3.7a1 is referred to as "Mozilla Developer Preview 1", check the Mozilla Wiki Releases page:
https://wiki.mozilla.org/Releases
It states it as "Firefox 3.7 Alpha 1". don't know why it was named that way there.
