My Dad sent this video to me and other family members this week.  He is a teacher at Central Catholic high school in San Antonio.  The video features students and faculty of Central Catholic addressing Saints owner Tom Benson with the “Who Dat” New Orleans Saints battle cry.  The video is somewhat cheesy, to say the least.  I do, however, love the final score prediction on the scoreboard at the end of the video.

So I figured the reason my Dad sent it out to us was because he was in it somewhere.  But after watching it, he is nowhere to be found.  Also, why would a San Antonio high school be reaching out to Tom Benson? Is it because of Catholic Saints?  What’s the connection?  This was my father’s response to these questions…

Tom Benson, the owner of car dealerships in town, owns the New Orleans Saints and he graduated from Central back in the ’60s.  Last year he gave $3 million to the school and the stadium carries his name.  His son graduated from Central back in the ’80s and died as a young man and he gifted the school in his son’s memory.  I am not in it because I avoid exposing my mug in front of too many women.  I don’t want to hire body guards.

I love that man.  He is my hero.  GO SAINTS!

Today's Deep Thought

  • I scrambled to the top of the precipice where Nick was waiting. "That was fun," I said. "You bet it was," said Nick. "Let's climb higher." "No," I said. "I think we should be heading back now." "We have time," Nick insisted. I said we didn't, and Nick said we did. We argued back and forth like that for about 20 minutes, and then finally decided to head back. I didn't say it was an interesting story.
