Here's A Good Training Camp Prank Story Courtesy Of The Saints' Newest Defensive Back, Cortland Finnegan
Every team needs a shit stirrer. More importantly, every team needs a shit stirrer that knows it's their role to be the shit stirrer. That's why I can't help but appreciate the Saints decision to add Cortland Finnegan. For one, he's a savvy veteran amongst a position group made up entirely of first and second year players. More importantly, he's the type of person you love to have on your team and HATE to play against and he knows and embraces it. If multiple well publicized scuffles with men twice his size weren't enough to prove that then his outright declaration that he's seen as a "dirtbag" certainly is. Now, of course that means that his teammates might end up with their cars stuck on top of a tow truck for hours as he drives away hysterically laughing at them from time to time. However, it's that same shamelessly over-the-line attitude that will be appreciated when he's doing everything in his power - in and outside of the rules - to help his team win on Sundays. You won't get an argument from me if you say that Cortland Finnegan is a scumbag, but he's New Orleans scumbag this season so I will be deriving every ounce of pleasure for every one of his antics until further notice...
