Whistlegate! Titans accuse Saints of cheating via sideline whistle.
From the Los Angeles Times sports blog:
Were the New Orleans Saints using a whistle on the sideline Sunday to mess with Tennessee Titans players?
At least a couple of Titans say they were.
According to ESPN.com’s Paul Kuharsky, Tennessee offensive linemen Jake Scott and Michael Roos said they believe someone was blowing a whistle on the Saints’ sideline late in the game, which New Orleans won, 22-17.
Scott said evidence of the chirping on Tennessee’s second-to-last drive was caught by a microphone worn by Roos for the show “Titans All Access.”
Roos told Kuharsky: “Everybody on our side heard something, we’re not sure where it came from exactly. But it sounded like from over there, and until we know more I can’t really say anything else. It’s not something that should be done but until we can have somebody look at it, we’ll have to wait and see.”
Dean McCondichie, the show’s producer, told Kuharsky the sound was “pretty loud and it was definitely a whistle.”
“The best I will be able to do [Monday] is say, ‘Yeah, there is that whistle.’ ” McCondichie said. “I can confirm it was loud enough for the Titans left tackle and several of his teammates to hear it during the play.”

I was at the game. I did hear the whistle, but no telling if it game from the team or fans. Who Dat?
WHO DAT? Saints in all black!
I learned last week that I won tickets to the game tonight, but my parents (mom in Missouri & dad in NOLA) didn’t want me to drive down incase my Durango had some sort of break down. I was still gonna go down, but then I couldn’t get a good nights rest. I guess they won… especially my dad because I gave him the tickets. They were good tickets too! I’ve never been on the lower bowl of a pro game, so it would have been a cool experience.
As much as it’s lame I’m lucky that I’ve been able to see a game in the dome. The first playoff victory in team history no less. Also, two weeks from now I’m going down to Nashville with some buddies for the Saints vs. Titans game! It makes up for not being able to see the Monday night game.
Geaux Saints! Who Dat?
Going down to NOLA
Thanksgiving with family.
Meeting up with some old and new friends.
Oh, and I won some tickets to the Monday Night Football game! Who Dat?
Work was okay. I got to play hearts on a computer while the other staff member took kids to the gym and they got in a fight. Didn’t have to deal with any of it. I did have to sweep a bit. Overall, pretty good day of work.
Helped get stuff ready for the pool at home. We’re finally putting the tarp over it. :(
Watched the Saints dominate 62-7! Actually felt bad for Peyton Manning since he couldn’t do anything about it.
The Cardinals lost, but I think we’ve still got a good chance of winning the World Series!
