One Track Mind: Kermit Ruffins – "A Saints Christmas" (2009)

by Pico

Since the New Orleans Saints is the Official™ NFL Team of Something Else, we were most bummed about the end of the team’s incredible winning streak last Saturday in the ‘Dome at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys. But we still remain hopeful that our boys in the Black and Gold will achieve the ultimate goal at the end of the season. New Orleans local icon and hometown favorite Kermit Ruffins has the same wish, too. Our beloved trumpet player, singer and keeper of the New Orleans jazz flame recently came up with a song that perfectly conveys our yuletide sentiments in the midst of this most special season.

Take it away, Kermit…

..

To fans of all teams and all music: Merry Christmas, y’all.
