    In 2004, the Red Sox had one of the most embarrassing slogans during their run to the WS. I think it was provided by Kevin Millar, whom I will always think of as a Red Sox, but it still makes me cringe. That phrase was "Cowboy up."

    "Geaux Saints" has easily taken over as the most embarrassing slogan ever.

    Actually, the term "geaux" has been used for years in Louisiana.  To embarrass means to cause uncomfortable self-consciousness.  Does "geaux" have that affect on you?  The term reflects the great French-Acadian heritage of South Louisiana.  The suffix "eaux" is commonly found in surnames and place names throughout the state.  The long "O" pronunciation gives the spelling the ability to couple the history of our culture along with the modern meaning.  It is commonly used in advertising, company names, many, many sport related applications and even seen used in sermon titles.  My son is a student/athlete at the University of New Orleans (UNO).  A favorite shirt slogan is "UNEAUX".

    So, embarrassing?  Only to those that do not understand.  It certainly is not embarrassing to the people of Louisiana.  I am sorry it disturbs you.  Or maybe not.

    Wink

    Geaux Saints!  10 and EAUX!  After Monday, 11 and EAUX!

    Yes, I know the origin, or actually assumed it. So, please don't miscomprehend my understanding of it.

    And don't assume that I am embarrassed by it. I am embarrassed for someone who would choose to use it and think it clever. 

    That being said, it is, quite clever for Louisianans. 

    Also, when would a true Acadie refer to himself as French-Acadian? 

    In all, a sad day for cajuns.

    First of all, my French-Acadian reference was to the language source for the root "eaux".  Not to the term by which our people refer to themselves. 

    I must say, however, that your behavior toward the people of Louisiana could reflect badly upon the perception others have upon your fellow Bostonians.  But, I know better.  I know the vast majority of your neighbors are reasonable, likeable, educated individuals.  I will just take it that you are a statistical outlier.

    I hope you well in wallowing in your embarrassment of how others express themselves in fun.

    I don't think it's embarrassing, but I don't think I'd be unjustified in saying that it's abnormally tacky.

    2003 was Cowboy Up. 2004 was "bunch of idiots".

    But, in either case, the "Aints" fans are full of tehmselves, and feel the need to brag about their once in a lifetime winning record (so far). Let 'em crow until the wee hours of Tuesday, when an Ash Wednesday type quiet descends on The Crescentr City, as they try and excuse away their first loss. Won't be enough paper bags in N'Awlins for next week's shopping.

    Funny stuff! It takes you 4 letters to do to your language what we native Bostonians can with 1 (the "R").  Will your first loss be ANOTHER Katrina thing you can blame on someone else? Are you getting the excuses lines up? Finally coming to grasp with the concept that the "Aints will not be 11 - 0 (make that "eaux") ?

    Seriously, I just noticed your response.  How do you find it tacky?  As I explained earlier the use of the "eaux" suffix has been a part of our vernacular for many years.  It isn't something new this year and it is by no means limited to the Saints.  LSU has used "Geaux" for many years.  The statewide toll is called GeauxPass.  Check out GeauxPass.com.  The Louisiana Public Service Commission's energy efficiency objective is called Geaux Green.  Gators on the Geaux is Louisiana's largest public art display.

    I think perhaps you are just not familiar thus it seems strange.  I will admit that Louisiana has a unique culture.  It is the only State in the nation with civil code based laws.  We have parishes as opposed to counties.  Lunches are an event to be enjoyed, not quick a run to grab a bite to eat.  Laissez les bon temps rouler!

    Come on down and spend a few days.

    A rookie mistake by a rookie Fan. I love the way he says the Pats fans will be shut up if the Aints win. We'll never be shut up no matter what happens but I guarantee you he will be when the Pats win. These guys think that because they have a good team they're just going to beat everyone automatically. I used to think that way when I was about 10 years old. The interesting thing is this game isn't even that important to us as compared to the divisional games that we have coming up but it's an early Superbowl for all the Aints fans. Get the rings ready in case they win.

    Re: What Saint fans are saying...

    Guido, first off this is a sports discussion board so if it doesn't involve football nobody cares. Second is we don't care about you, I'm sure you're just another swamp maggot who jumped on the bandwagon after they won a couple and like the many many years before, you'll be ready to jump to another team after the Pats beat them Monday and there's no more hype.
    The Pats are the best team in the NFL in first half scoring, there isn't going to be any miracle finishes this week.

    Oh, gee, a smug, easily offended cajun. Eek.

    First of all, despite your current back-pedalling, the term French-Acadian is redundant, which was my point. Second, the root is from the French, the language of the Acadians.

    Lastly, just why all the smugness? I find it odd coming from a person from a city that can't understand why it flooded when it was built underwater.

    I guess then that my response when seeing someone act in a tacky manner is to be embarrassed for them.

    Nice call on the "cowboy up" crap... I was embarrassed by that too!!  It was gay!

    To me, cowboy up is a redneck thing and had no place in Boston!! 

    This coming from a guy who grew up in Boston but lives in Hawaii now and works in Iraq!! lol

    I always found the "cowboy up" thing strange coming out of Boston/NE. They should have used Patriot up, or Minuteman up, or Duckboat up or something. There's never been a cowboy in Boston in all the history of cowboys or Boston...as far as I know anyways?

    IraqSteve- keep your head down and good luck 'til you're back in the States

    ~Ya really can't be "embarrassed" about the further degradation of the English Language en masse, with some silly corruption of a meaningless term, BUT You CAN be embarrassed about the "tackiness" of sporting a leather cowboy hat, hippie glasses and porn-stache trifecta...just sayin' is all.
