Digital Indigestion

I continue to struggle with the digital medium.

It’s almost like the visual dilemma of what vinyl records vs. compact disks was to music.

It’s crisp, it’s clean and it’s sharp,but is that all we want?

In the 44th Super Bowl, in our 44th year , with 44 seconds on the clock, we knew.

The players made it a mission to play for a community and not just themselves.

Our coach took money out of his own pocket to bring in the best assistant coach.

We took a quarterback no one else wanted because he had been injured.

We have a group of fans , who belong to another nation and it’s United!

And when we lost three in a row, Who Dat Nation still believed!

2,000 men wore dresses to remember and celebrate a die hard voice.

87% of the televisions in New Orleans were tuned in and on.

When we won , you could hear it for miles and grown men cried.

There will be a parade like only New Orleans can do it!

And not one car was overturned or burned in “celebration”.

That’s how we roll!

106,500,000 people watched the Saints beat the Colts in the Super Bowl last night, shattering the previous record for a Super Bowl. 98,000,000 people watched last year’s Cardinals vs. Steelers game, which was at that time the record.

Story of a Saint

In 1978, Erby Aucoin was the Director of Photography for the New Orleans Saints. I was 18 at the time, just a kid, but Erby gave me a chance hiring me as his assistant.

The job lasted less than two seasons but during that time, we covered games all over the country, and even Mexico City. It was an incredible experience which changed my life. Erby was like a second father to me.

Erby was the combination of Santa and a court jester. He cooked a mean gumbo , could fix a film processor with his eyes shut and do lot more. One day at Dodger Town in Vero Beach, FL , where the Saints held training camp in those days, I remember we had a short conversation. Erby said, you know if the Saints win the Super Bowl, we will get rings too. It was an interesting comment, because possessions weren’t important to him. He would give you the shirt off his back.

Well, as we all know the Saints didn’t go to the Super Bowl . Sadly, Erby is no longer with us but even without a ring, I know he is smiling!
