Oh this is sweet, this is absolutely delicious.

I don't need reminding you how sure a New Orleans victory looked on Sunday night, as the whole world expected them to finish off the Vikings at 24-23 with 10 seconds on the clock.

What happened next was history, but in the moments before the Diggs touchdown that shocked the world, even Saints head coach Sean Payton thought the game was in the bag.

So sure, that he decided to mock Vikings fans by imitating the "Skol" chant.

Here's the picture evidence.

Well, how do you feel now Sean? Not so happy, I bet?

Nine years after the Saints Bountygate-d their way to the Super Bowl against the Vikings, we're going to enjoy this schadenfreude.

We're not going to revel in it for too long though, we've got the NFC Championship Game to look forward to on Sunday.

What are your Sunday plans, Sean?

Update, 12:30 p.m: Sean Payton has told NFL.com that his Skol chant was all about "good playoff fun."

We had great fun Sean, we really did.
