Saints. New Orleans Saints.

(Note: Actually, this post has little if anything to do with the Saints, so please feel free to skip past it if you want.)

Yeah, so the new James Bond flick comes out this Friday. And in honor of "Quantum of Solace," and because I forgot to pick a depressing song for Monday after the Saints' recent loss, I figured I'd take care of both at the same time and post the video to the new Bond movie theme song: "Another Way to Die."

Yeah, and because I need to think about something other than the Saints for five minutes without the need to drink, I decided to spend the rest of this post dealing with all things James Bond. I'll mention this on the radio show, cause somebody needs to see these opinions more than anything else I have to offer.
