>Dat’s Who

February 8, 2010

>Oh, to be in New Orleans during Mardi Gras this year.

Drew Brees carried the Saints to their first Super Bowl victory in their 43 year history. No need to recap the game here, I’ll leave that to the sports guys.

But let’s recap the celebration a little bit, beginning with this classic video of Louis Armstrong “When the Saints Go Marchin In” to get us in the mood. Thanks Neal for the idea.

Fast forward a few decades and this was the scene on Royal Street last night after the game, same song, more revelry.

A block over the celebration on Bourbon Street was just as raucous, same song.

And a little more Who Dat on Bourbon Street.


Thanks Sean (Payton: gutsy, aggressive game plan), Drew (Brees: MVP, ties record for most completions in Super Bowl, beat Warner, Favre, Manning, might be greatest QB of all time), Tracy (Porter: great interception, great return), Garrett (Hartley: first to kick three FG greater than 40 yards in SB history, great onside kick), Pierre (Thomas: great TD reception), and everybody else (defense, defense defense)!

But one more, everybody’s favorite after Super Bowl moment. Drew Brees with his son Baylen celebrating.

Just a few items that might interest you.

*Fox News has pretty much ignored the earthquake in Haiti, devoting about 5-7 minutes per hour to the tragedy when it first happened. Story. They also did not participate in the Hope for Haiti Now telethon.

No surprise, as we already know they don’t care about the underprivileged here in the United States, as they support denying health care to the uninsured.

*The IPhone will be available through Verizon (probably)in the near future.

*John Edwards has a sex tape. No one wants to see it, but there is some curiosity because he is said to be “physically very striking” and people say, “Whoa,” when they see his…well, when they see the tape. (the tape is not at the link, just the story)

*New Orleans is headed to the Super Bowl!!!

>I’m a Saints fan, but…

>First, I don’t bet on football. Not on Auburn, not on Alabama and not on the Saints.

Second, I don’t drink to the point that I say stupid things (I may say some stupid things from time to time without drinking, however).

Third, I like our TV.

Fourth, I don’t allow people to shoot semi-automatic weapons on my property.

But Wayne Spring is a different kind of football fan. He didn’t think the Saints could beat the Redskins, so he posted on Facebook that if the Saints won that his FB friends could come shoot up his TV.

After the Saints won 33-30 in overtime, people began arriving armed, drunk and dangerous.

Goodbye 60 inch flat screen. “A bets a bet.”

“That ain’t nothing compared to what I lost to the bookie”
