Cowboys get snubbed in farvor of Saints

As the New Orleans Saints continue their extended victory lap with the Lombardi Trophy, word has emerged of a pair of Indianapolis indignities that will make one of the only teams to beat the Saints in 2009 even more determined to knock them off in 2010.

The story comes from Peter King of SI.com.

The Saints' staff had dinner on Friday night at St. Elmo Steakhouse. Coach Sean Payton wanted a magnum of Caymus Special Selection cabernet sauvignon. (We assume that opening the bottle entailed no unscrewing.)

The only problem? Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was hosting his staff in the same room the next night, and Jones had phoned ahead and reserved a bottle of the same wine. But there was only one left.

Payton insisted, and as a continuation of a recent trend he won.

It wasn't enough for Payton to secure the wine. The next night, when the Cowboys arrived, the empty bottle was on the table with a handwritten note on the label: "WHO DAT! Word Champions XLIV, Sean Payton."

Did we mention that the Saints play in Dallas this year?

And why do we suddenly have a strange feeling that the Saints are going to sign T.O.?

I hate them both, but I loathe the Cowboys. and I find this hilarious.

this is why we love Payton; he's got balls the size of New Jersey.

You have to remember; he was in line for the head coaching job in Dallas and was not chosen. I'm sure he REALLY hates Jerah (that's how they see Jerry in Big D)

If Sean Payton actually misspelled "World Champions" on the handwritten note, it only adds to the hilarity.

I didn't even notice that. So awesome that the misspelling resulted in the title, "Word Champions." :eek:

Does it really take balls to scribble something on a bottle and leave it to be found later by some unspecified party? Balls would have been if he would have walked his staff in there during Jerry's scheduled meeting, cracked open the bottle in front of Jerry and his staff, and drank it out of a stripper's ass crack - all while chanting "Who Dat?" and wearing the Cowboys flag as a makeshift adult diaper....

Just sayin...

Of course the manager is now going "who dat" after Jerry buys the place and fires him.
