Saints kick it up a notch
I've always liked that saying "without risk, there can be no reward."
Well if ever there were a perfect real-life illustration of that principle, it was last-night's gutsy Super Bowl win by the New Orleans Saints.
The onside kick by the Saints to open the second half was sheer brilliance. They could have kicked deep, as nearly any other team would have, and then most likely would have watched the Indianapolis Colts march methodically down the field for a score, as only the Colts can do.
But no, the Saints took a risk — a huge risk — and it payed off, big-time.
The Saints showed that they are the best, and they did it in truly super fashion.
