When we all woke up Monday Morning there were many things that each of us felt great about.  That first crisp, cool fall morning hit us in the face like a breath of fresh air giving us a feeling that only the weather can.

But for the first time in a few years the home teams are also giving the folks in Louisiana a lot more to cheer about.  The New Orleans Saints and LSU Tigers are both riding win streaks and both are right back in the thick of things.

New Orleans has won four straight games while over in the Capital City of Baton Rouge the LSU Tigers have won three straight games and slide into their BYE week as one of the few remaining SEC Teams that is still very much in the SEC Title hunt.

Chants of “Who Dat” and “Geaux Tigers” can be heard all over the state and the feel good days are long and strong when the Tigers and Saints are both winning.  I mean just ask yourself do you feel better on Monday’s when the Purple and Gold and Black and Gold are winning.

It’s been proven in past years that when the local teams win it produces some very interesting results.  Crime is down, the economy gets a boost and people are overall in a much better mood and are more likely to do kind things and even give more.

I’ve talked to many people in the Cab Business, Hotel/Motel Industry as well as area restaurants and everyone from the drivers, Bel Hops, Waiters, Waitresses and Doormen all say to me that people even tip more when the teams are winning.

So right now everything is All Good on the Saints and Tigers front.  And we can only hope that each team will continue their current winning ways.  So how do you feel?  Are you in dat number of those that feel good when the Tigers and Saints win.  And if so tell us how you feel?
