Does Drew Brees Have A Speech Impediment?

This entry was posted in Holidays, Texts on by .

Super Bowl fever is upon us (make sure you to get vaccinated. We wouldn’t want to spread it to the children). This year’s game, if you haven’t been paying attention, features the Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints. And, at the risk of angering my Peyton Manning-loving boss, I’ve thrown all my support towards the Saints.

The Saints are led by their quarterback, Drew Brees, who has taken on a pretty great nickname, Bresus. But even with the obvious Christian undertones of the nickname, the New Orleans Jewish community has embraced it, and even Jewified it. They are, you guessed it, Jews (Drews) for Bresus.

Thanks to The Sporting Blog, I found a pretty amazing version of Dayeinu, from the Kosher Cajun New York Deli & Grocery in Metairie, LA. If you’re a Saints fan, make sure to sing this at your seder this year:

Had he receded the floodwater and not given us our team back
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

Had he given us our team and not provided a Payton
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

Had he provided a Payton and not signed a Bresus
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

Had he signed a Bresus and not drafted a Bush
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

Had he drafted a Bush and not found a Colston in the 7th round
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

Had he found a Colston in the 7th round and not provided the 2006 season
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

Had he provided the 2006 season and not a win on Monday night home opener
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

Had he a win on Monday night home opener and not a NFC South title
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

Had he given us a NFC South title and not a trip to Chicago
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

Had he given us a trip to Chicago and not given us two seasons to remind us they are still the Saints
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

Had he given us two seasons to remind us they are still the Saints and not given us 2009 season
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

Had he given us the 2009 season and not provided 10 straight wins
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

Had he provided 10 straight wins and not a win on Monday night against New England
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

Had he given us a win on Monday night against New England and not a NFC South title
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

Had he given us a NFC title and not home field in the playoffs
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

Had he given us home field in the playoffs and not a NFC Championship
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

Had he given us a NFC Championship and not a Super Bowl versus a Manning
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

Had he given us a Super Bowl versus a Manning and not a Super Bowl Title
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

Had he given us a Super Bowl Title and not the world largest victory parade Mardi Gras!
Dayenu, It would have been enough for us

He has provided all of these things and for this we are grateful.

Become a black and gold convert.

Bless You Boys
