As the Sports Guy pointed out:

Thank God for the Saints. We almost had Lakers-Yanks-Colts-Duke consecutive titles. Or as it’s also known, the apocalypse.

Four years ago I had to stomach UCLA getting stomped on in the championship game by Florida. I feel at least as ill now. I can’t imagine what Gordon Hayward is going through—a few inches from immortality. He’ll have to settle for being a first-round draft pick and making a cool million or so next season.
