"70 Seconds of Saints" debuted in 2014. It's never been my intention to represent the feature as "expert" analysis. I've never worked as a sportswriter, or sportscaster. It's just the musings of a fan.The past three seasons have brought a lot of frustration. There have been times when it's been difficult to keep up the role of eternal optimist, in which I've cast myself. After last season, I half jokingly told Sam Stokes, who conceived the series, I wasn't sure I want to do it in 2017. Given the fact that I've repeatedly bashed "Fair Weather Fans," I guess throwing in the towel would be hypocritical. I've been following the black & gold for many years, was appalled by the "fans" who wore the bags in 1980. The talking heads don't think our team will have much success this year. I think the Saints will prove the "experts" wrong. "70 Seconds" will return for the 2017 season. Meanwhile, here are a couple of my favorite episodes.
