When long-suffering sports fans finally win a championship, they are unofficially granted temporary insanity. Can anyone think of a city that knows how to celebrate with booze, boobs, and bad decisions like New Orleans? It’s one week before Marti Gras, but I can guarantee tomorrow the French Quarter will play host to the party of the year. At 5 p.m. Drew Brees and the Super Bowl Champion Saints will show off their shiny new trophy to a lot of bead-hungry friends.
I can’t fathom what this victory means for the people of the city of New Orleans, who have rebuilt everything from scratch since Katrina five years ago. The parade will feature ten Mardi Gras inspired floats and will toss 1.8 million beads.
It is safe to say the crowd will act with minimal maturity or morals, which is why New Orleans will be a beer soaked, music blasting, inhibition-less, love-fest that won’t end anytime soon. Enjoy.
