Super Bowl XLIV: the New Orleans Saints beat the Indianapolis Colts

Fans of the New Orleans Saints have been asking the same question all week leading up to
Super Bowl XLIV in South Florida:
"'Who Dat' gonna beat dem Saints?" They got their
answer Sunday night. Nobody. The team battled back from an early deficit and punctuated
their victory with an interception return for a touchdown off the usually steady hand of Colts
quarterback Peyton Manning. Manning's counterpart on the Saints, Drew Brees, played
flawlessly in delivering the first title to the beleaguered city. And the eternal party on Bourbon
Street could now add the word "victory" to the celebration. ( 27 photos total)
