I get about a zillion Saints reads, jokes, songs a day from my New Orleans buddies, but this one was pretty spot on and funny! It does make me happy to see all my old friends so stoked about their Saints!


8 things that will happen WHEN/IF the Saints make the Super Bowl:

If that should happen, New Orleans is likely to explode into a chaotic revelry unlike anything the city has ever seen before. Add in the fact that we’ll be in the midst of Mardi Gras during the game and it’s almost scary to think what could go down here on February 7, 2010, if the Saints are in Miami.

Here are some things we might see:

1. Alcohol shortages: All groceries, convenience stores and drug stores within a 100 mile radius of New Orleans will completely sell out of beer, wine and liquor. If the Saints make the Super Bowl, you should stock up at least a week in advance otherwise you’ll be stuck with soda and water.

2. Extreme noise: The sounds of 1.13 million cheering fans in metro New Orleans will reach more than 500 decibels. Hundreds of thousands of stomping feet will create shockwaves and tremors as far away as Houston and Atlanta.

3. Regional smoke screen and CO2 emissions: Smoke from barbecue pits, fireworks and bonfires will create a 250-mile long cloud in the sky that will be seen from satellites and on Google Earth. Tens of thousands of residents will boil seafood in their backyards and CO2 emissions from the burning propane tanks will create a hole in the ozone above New Orleans.

4. Total gridlock: The crowds of people trying to get to the French Quarter will back up traffic all the way to Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. If you’re driving in from the east, you’ll likely have to park somewhere on Judge Perez in Chalmette and walk the rest of the way. The line to get into Pat O’Brien’s will end somewhere in the Marigny and the spillover from Bourbon Street will run all the way to Decatur.

5. The city will use parking tickets to fund Nagin’s world travels: The City of New Orleans Parking Enforcement will mark the day on the calendar and send out busloads of meter maids to issue thousands of tickets to those having a good time downtown. They’ll use the proceeds to send Mayor Nagin on a luxury 13-day cruise down the Nile followed by a jaunt into space with Richard Branson.

6. New Orleans will put out 3 more port-o-lets: In response to the massive crowds, the city will put 3 more port-o-lets for a grand total of 12. This will increase ratio of toilets-to-people to an impressive 1 toilet per 24,000 visitors. The wait time to pee in the French Quarter will drop from five hours to only three.

7. Who Dat migration: Thousands of vehicles, mostly Chevy Silverados with fleur de lis stickers in the back windows, will make the trip down I-10 then head south on I-75 and I-95 to Miami. “Who Dat!” will be heard at dozens of gas stations along the way which will also subsequently sell out of Bud Light. Much of the 862 miles of interstate between New Orleans and Miami will be littered with beer cans and chicken bones.

8. Thousands of televisions will need to be replaced: Country folk Who Dats on the north shore and in wooded areas surrounding New Orleans will shoot out their televisions in excitement.

I got a message from my Uncle Stephen from across the bridge off of Terrytown Parkway a couple of days ago about the Saints game, "Dude yA thank deem who datz gonna pull it off? Whutz goinon dude. Give me an update drum afar." That's what 40 years in New Orleans will do to you. The scary part is I understand what he is saying.

We'll be rooting for the Saints, but I have a feeling about Favre and the Vike D.

I hope they win but I just don't see them beating Manning. He is too good.


If this was a Stratomatic Game I would agree with you.

Good thing they won, although I imagine Derek had his "I root for teams from the Heartland" speech all ready to go as he would have proclaimed his love for the Colts.



I'll be rooting for the Saints but I am definitely happy for my Hoosier friends. I'm in Indiana all of the time, my best honey holes are there, and have wandered from the limestone post rock country to the Amish areas to the tree growing out of the courthouse in Greensburg to the hill country outside of Vevay and up from the river from Rising Sun to the coonhunter's lodge in Batesville to the awesome flea market, muzzle loader and 1700's rendezvous in Friendship to canoeing the Whitewater River from Brookville Lake to St. Leon to all there is to do in Indianapolis (cool zoo) going all of the way back to going to the time trials at Indy from the late 1960s on. I hope they have fun with it.

Colts have a better defense, but the one thing the Saints' D always seems to do is to get turnovers. Just like yesterday - the Vikings out-gained them 2 to 1, but the Saints got the turnovers.... That's hard to rely on, but they've done it all year.

I definitely think we've got the 2 best teams in the SB this year. I just hope it's a good game!




They won't have Adrian Petersen to cough it up 3 or 4 times against the Colts.

So about 6 months ago my friend Mark Q. calls me up and tells me he has a gift for me. Seems he saw him in the New Orleans area, approached him and said.."I have this friend who is a Huge Saints fan...."

Geaux Saints!

Well, I've been talking about the late Buddy D on here as the Saints head to the Bowl, and the other day the folks of New orleans gave Buddy D a crazy yet fitting tribute, including ex Saints QB Bobby Hebert and hunbdreds more going drag in his honor;

Ex-New Orleans Saints QB Bobby Hebert leads Bourbon Street's drag celebration

By Hank Gola
Daily News Sports Writer

Monday, February 1st 2010

Buddy Diliberto had to be tossing in his grave - with laughter.

The late New Orleans sports radio icon, who once promised to wear a dress and parade down Bourbon Street if the Saints ever made it to the Super Bowl, had the bet fulfilled Sunday by thousands of men in drag on a 12-block jaunt from the Superdome to the French Quarter.

Former Saints quarterback Bobby Hebert, Diliberto's successor on the radio, led the festivities in a black-and-gold secquened mumu designed and sent from New York by his daughter, Cammie Lynn, as described in Saturday's Daily News.


Former quarterback Bobby Hebert is joined by thousands of revelers in drag as the Big Easy begins counting down to Sunday's game against Colts in Miami.

"It was above and beyond anything I expected," said Hebert, who estimated the crowd of participants and spectators at 50,000. "I couldn't even walk. They had to put me on top of a float. It was 50 degrees but everybody had enough antifreeze in them."

Even New Orleans, with all of its wonderful madness, had never seen anything quite like this. The cross-dressing revelers high-stepped under parasols, swilled a few hurricanes, chanted, "Bud-dy, Bud-dy. Bud-dy" and of course, threw in a few, "Who dat say day gonna beat dem Saints?"

Hebert wore a blond wig with pigtails.

"If the Saints win the Super Bowl, the party is going to eclipse anything this city's ever seen," Hebert said. "Next week is Mardi Gras. There's going to be a month-long party. It's going to be the closest thing to Rio or Trinidad. Lent isn't going to slow it down. Who Dat Nation would say, 'No. God understands the circumstances. We didn't think this would happen.'"- Hank Gola

Outlook for the Atlantic, Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico

Hurricane Whodat is predicted to make landfall on the South Florida coast in the vicinity of Miami on 7 Feb 2010 at approximately 2200Z (5:00 PM EST). This extremely powerful hurricane is expected to produce damaging Shockey waves and Category 5 Brees.

Reports from shipping indicate that this unstoppable storm has blown a huge flock of Cardinals all the way to Arizona and that it has sunk a replica Viking longboat along the way. Livestock, in particular young horses, will be in severe danger of being decimated. Predictive damage estimates are unavailable at this time, but they are expected to be significant. All interests in and near the Miami area are advised to prepare for a storm surge of catastrophic proportions as Hurricane Whodat begins to arrive in a few hours.

It depends on how many hand grenades are tossed at the Tropical Isle I reckon.

Almost feels like Mardi Gras Day morning today, if you have done that before- getting ready and pacing yourself, folks gearing up and heading to the meeting point to have some fun and eat good food and libate on up. Having fun talking to friends with a New Orleans connection all this morning and afternoon. Sometimes you learn something new, as in when PattyG was a kid there was a pecan in the King Cake and not a baby. Musician friends did gigs elsewhere last night but are treking to the CC for today's game, parade on Tuesday win or lose. Nothing against the Colts, love the Hoosier State where I hang often, and all my Hoosier friends as well, but got to be dem Saints. Lucky for us, we only got six inches, so if you are in the double digit Shenandoah Valley and east, do what you can, safe travels and have fun.

You've been?


Absolutely. My first Mardi Gras was in 1977. The Mardi Gras that I got thrown in jail in New Orleans at was in 1979. Someboidy asked me for this story earlier today, so since it is typed out, here is what went down;

I drove down with a friend from Cincinnati and took a detour through the beautiful Natchez Trace Parkway, where I got the first speeding ticket of my life. But, even though the muffler would come off underneath the car every once in a while, we made it to my uncle‘s house in New Orleans safe and sound. A few days in, at 2:20am on the Mississippi River Bridge in New Orleans, the muffler comes off again. We pull over to fix it and up behind us comes a tow truck. It was February and we just came in from the north during wintertime where tow trucks will try and make a buck or two off of folks they see on the side of the road. We fixed the muffler and when he pulled up, I said the hell with that and drove off, not letting him get out of his truck. One problem, the bridges are so long down there that the bridges have their own cops patrolling them...in tow trucks...to get wrecks off the bridge as quick as possible, etc. Red lights, pulled over.

Up here you stay in your car when pulled over unless asked to get out by the Popo. Down there , they asked me to get out of the car immediately. He decides to search me and, back in the 70s, I had a quarter OZ of hash in my sock and a pipe with a chamber on it used for resonating purposes, and it was heavy as can be, in my pants pocket. We weren’t doing anything wrong, I wasn’t drunk driving, we only fixed the muffler. As I am about to be searched, I try and throw the heavy chamber bowl under the car as I assume the position and the heavy pipe hits every piece of gravel it could and is loud as crap. Boom, arrested. It gets crazier.

That year, 1979, the New Orleans cops were on strike so it is chaos all over and I end up being transported downtown by Louisiana State cops. Somehow I ended up in the drunk tank at Central Lockup instead of the big holding rooms where the other criminals were being held. Central Lockup is going crazy at the time, mardi gras madness and what law there is has barely any control over the scene.

While in the drunk tank, it was so crazy that a guy in the Navy calls his base and says, "Get some MPs down here and get me the hell out of here. Throw me in the brig instead, this is nuts.” There was a pay phone in the drunk tank and another drunk fool in a disheveled business suit tries to call a New Orleans city councilman at 4am at his house, a man he had met only once at a party. All you had to hear was one end of that conversation. “My name is Jim. We met at a dinner party six months ago…….well, you said to call me if I…..” Click!

Meanwhile, one of the holding pens full of people is going crazy as a guy is losing his mind. At about the same time I am called up before the desk to get processed. As I approach the desk, a group of cops of some kind are grouped together outside the holding pen, planning their actions with bully clubs in their hands. The crap hit’s the fan as the officer asks me to empty my pockets on the desk. The next thing I hear is, “Do you always hand cops pipes?” I had no idea that the bridge cop had put the pipe back in my pocket. Here is the luck once again- because the cops were on strike, it was young recruits called Explorers that were manning the desk and they looked over at the chaos and saw that no one was watching us and said, “You are being cool with us. I’ll just take this and keep it.” I couldn’t believe it. But, one hurdle yet to jump.

The Explorers then ask me to take my shoes off so they can search them and my socks. Well, I still had the hash in my sock. But I thought quickly and had another stroke of luck. Because I had come straight down from wintertime up north, I happened to have long underwear on, which has elastic around the bottom. I bent down and slickly transferred the contraband from my sock to the elastic band in my long underwear as they then searched my shoes and socks. I could feel the contraband slipping, but it held secure.

Soon, since I was smart enough to leave most of my cash at his apartment, my uncle showed up and bailed me out. The next morning I went to court and because there was no evidence, the asst. prosecutor talks to me before I went before the judge and says, ‘How about a 50 dollar fine for public drunkenness and that’s it.” “Hell yes, sign me up.” $50 fine, I am a free man and ready to have fun with the last three days of Mardi Gras, and that is what we did. It turned out to be a blast, as New Orleans always is if you stay out of trouble.

The kicker, the night before I left go to New Orleans I had one of those dreams that you know is more real than the others. I was a little cocky mat 20 years old and would brag about how slick I was because I had never been arrested ever or ever got a speeding ticket. The night before I left on the trip I dreamed that I would get both, and that is what exactly happened.

Go Saints, from a REAL and LONGTIME FAN< as is many at this party I what be at right now!! Roll on!!@


DH
