Iko Iko!

Ok. So, it was a sad weekend in New Orleans. However, I think that we have to be grateful for the season we had. For the most part, the Saints worked hard(to the point of injury, for some) and maintained their fighting spirit. It doesn’t mean we can’t “repeat dat” one day…it just might not be as soon as we’d hoped.

 But in the spirit of carnival, and in the spirit of optimism, let’s consider that even making it to the play-offs deserves an IKO IKO! I recently did a little wiki research on this West African/Indian expression to find that it was used as a victory chant and also means “well done” , or “congratulations” among other West African groups. So let’s bestow some joy and kudos and bless our boys! There’s always next year.
