Origins of Who Dat…

While celebrating the Saints huge win tonight with a house full of friends, I found myself explaining lots of my hometown New Orleans lore and tradition, like:

Mardi Gras – A week long party like none other. A celebration with food, beads and parade to signify the approaching leaner times. “Throw me something Mister” are the most used words.

Bourbon Street – A street where anything goes, and usually does (and anything is nothing good).

Etouffee – A Cajun dish typically served with shellfish or chicken over rice and is similar to gumbo, and the featured dish tonight!

Who Dat?

Instead of me trying to explain it, take a look for yourself – vintage 1983 (back when everyone was beatin’ those Saints)…

    Thanks Roy! I actually remembr that video. Did you find it funny that the highlights were against the Bucs? I looked it up and it was the 8th game of the season. The Bucs had also lost the previous 7 games.
