Super Bling, Baby! Part XLIV

Presented last night at the historic Roosevelt Hotel in a private ceremony closed to both the public and the press.

Drew Brees and his adorable wife, now expecting their second child, pulled up to the hotel in a horse-drawn carriage. Pretty apropos for a team once considered a Cinderella.

But, as to the rings themselves? Now THAT'S what I'm talkin' 'bout! A Super Beauxl Championship ring with a serious New Orleans flavor.

Who Dat sayin' New Orleans ain't afraid to display a little ostentation!

Bling, baby, bling!

If one wears such a ring and lifts one's arm from time to time, one probably gets enough weight training to skip a day or two of weight training!

(Remember in the olden days when girls with tiny fingers would wear their boyfriends' class ring around their necks on a chain? I wouldn't advise that practice with this ring -- it could lead to a bad case of muscle spasms -- or whiplash!)

Voluntary mini-training camp, over -- countdown to pre-season, begun!

Geaux Saints!!
UPDATE: The Saints organization is raffling off one of their blingy rings with proceeds going to Gulf clean-up and recovery efforts. Just thought I'd mention it. Sorry, you won't have a chance to win the ring -- that's MINE!


  1. So cool...such a happy thing for a town that has had some hard luck times!!!

  2. Moogie, further congrats on your Saints. Would you believe that Pam still wears my high school ring on a chain around her neck occasionally.

    Sure you would.

    Good luck on the raffle. If you win it, I'll expect you to donate it to charity.


  3. Yeah -- that charity would be the Moogie Preservation and Pleasure Aid Society!

  4. Oooh, we has VERY mixed emotions on the bling-thing, Precious. Oh yesss, we does!

    But a championship? Not one single conflicting emotion whatsoever. Those are ALWAYS great good things.

    wv: olembook. Just add a "G" on the front and you have the proper pronunciation of my first para. How does Google DO this sorta stuff?

  5. Heh.

    Yesss -- the Preciousss issss MINES!!!!!!
