Hail 'Stache 2011


Hail Fleur-de-Stache, full of faith, the Black & Gold is with Thee. Blessed art thou among fleur-de-lis and blessed is the soul of thy team, the New Orleans Saints.

Holy ‘Stache, Patron Saint of Who Dat Mustachios, pray for our Bless You Boys at the hour of their kickoff.

Let us be thankful for the flavors we’ve already savored: a resurrected Sacredome, a Deuce upside your head, a Meach-around, an old man’s pants on the ground, a Thanksgiving Day Jenkins jack, and a party with Lombardi.

Sustain our lungs and livers, oh ‘Stache, and train our Dome Foam strainers to remain steady in the face of every 2011 obstacle, be it dirty bird, bastard Bear, or the spoiled loin fruits of St. Archie.

As we place Thy sacred hair upon these fleur-de-lips, we honor the Black & Gold that have come before us: St. Buddy, pray for us. St. Dulymus, guide us. Dome Patrol, defend us. St. Gleason, inspire us.

Grant us faith, oh ‘Stache, as we commit these fleur-de-lip sweaters to the season of roofbanging before us. For thine is the kingdom of Who Dats, the power running game, and the gris gris.

Who Dat!

Pick up the phone and call somebody!

From Jeffrey, we learn that Joe Horn did indeed use his 2006 smoked and pulled groin jerkey as the base for a post-football business venture:

Joe Horn's Bayou 87 Barbeque Sauce!

Say Joe. You looking for a sauce boss?

Yes, indeed.

Mining for Gold

No menus until we finish what the Bears started, but tonight's pre-season tussle with the 49ers does allow us to look a few years back to a Sunday afternoon when Saint Dulymus was invoked. Solid gold indeed.

A Meditation on 11

To be honest, I never thought last season's 11 wins seemed so impressive until I viewed, in succession ...
  • the Thanksgiving Day Jenkins Jank
  • HOFer-to be Jimmy Graham's catch at the Ravens
  • Will Smith tea-bagging sack of Ben Roethlesberger
  • MNF at Atlanta and Pierre Thomas

Pre-season is for Pretenders

It's worth saying twice: pre-season is for pretenders, on account of contenders already be flashing mid-season form.

Plaza dwellers might make an extra trip to the video-splayed toilet environs at tonight's Sacredome Extreme Makeover party, but up in the Terrace Towers, we'll be kicking back with Dirty Denim's Jim Beam flask, incognito style. No stache til da Bears. But that don't mean we ain't already in mid-season form ...

Enter the following in the "Bistro 649 Bout to Blow Up" evidence pool:

Exhibit B
Droopy Dog
(see that Stomper in the background? 641 alumnus & all kinds of proud that The Entity and Shorty Chef were still standing after the 610 Stomper Ball Crawl back in June)

Exhibit C
Imaginative Hat Stache
(The Entity takes the Most Imaginative Stache category at Pete's Annual Mustache Party by wearing a 20s style flapper Hat Stache. Boom.)
