    I have seen some stores that still have paper, but it is definitely not what it used to be. The good news for Saints fans who want to rock the throwback look is those in the picture are wearing the paper lawn bags, which are still sold at most places with a lawn center.

    They are not environmentally friendly, so they use reusable bags now. :heh:

    Don't be jealous. Just cuz your team isn't old enough to have throw backs, doesn't mean you should hate on ours! :nolisten:

    No throwbacks but we DOMINATE you in Jersey/Pant color schemes. Take that!

    Why would be jealous of your throwbacks? That represents a time when your franchise was more futile than even my Texans!

    Even Vince remembers: :vincepalm:

    I dunno... I grew up a Braves fan AND Saints fan in the 80s. Not much winning, but there's a certain nostalgia remembering those days before the bandwagons got full.

    And seeing these throwback uniforms:

    was pretty sweet, even if it was a nod to the bygone days of Braves suckage.

    Indeed it does, although that's part of what makes being a Saints fan so much sweeter these days: remembering where the franchise has come from and seeing where it finally has gotten. I was a child of the eighties so I never really got to experience the really bad years, but I was there when we played a "home" game against the bears in Tiger Stadium... I'm sure Vince remembers that too :vincepalm: ... Point being, we are proud of our history, even if the history isn't proud. Bandwagoners cheered when Hartley's kick went through in OT, the Old schoolers cried.

    I would like them a lot more if they played like the 70's Saints on Sunday.
