It’s the best day of the year in New Orleans, Louisiana. Mardi Gras, AKA Fat Tuesday, is a time of celebration, doing all the alcohol and risking indecent exposure charges in exchange for some plastic beads from a gas station.
New Orleans needs this. They just got their hearts ripped out and stomped on in the NFC Championship. The Saints lost everything, because a couple Cali bros wanted the Rams in the Super Bowl instead. Yes, some of the refs were from Southern California and you’re right, it does not get talked about enough. But time heals all wounds, so they should be over it by now.
The Saints and the City of New Orleans are definitely not over it. In fact this is what they are throwing out at Mardi Gras parades.
That is absolutely hilarious. Much like the referees in the NFC Championship game, this ref on this flag appears to not have eyes.
Hopefully an entire weekend of drinking will help some of the bad memories fade away. The missed pass interference call is widely considered the worst call of all time. I would never get over it, so take all the time you all need.
I actually hope that the Saints win the Super Bowl next year so the blown PI call can kick off the Championship DVD.
