Who Dat?™ Geaux Saints!
Oh yeah … all those years when nobody else cared about the Saints, it was “Who Dat? Nation” and “Who Dat?” dis and “Who Dat?” dat. Now the NFL is claiming “Who Dat” is copyrighted, or it’s a trademark, or something. Now that the New Orleans Saints are in the Super Bowl, the NFL is seizing”Who Dat?” – oh wait … “Who Dat?™” – in hopes of feeding its already bloated billion-dollar enterprise.
Who Dat?™ who’s greedy? The NFL, dat’s Who Dat?™!
In other news, our great friend and awesome photographer Art Meripol sent an e-mail yesterday: he’s on assignment in New Orleans shooting jazz clubs from about now until the middle of next week. The Super Bowl’s on Sunday, Mardi Gras hits its fever pitch next week (or Sunday if the Saints win), and our buddy’s in the middle of it all. Nice work if you can get it.
Anyway, the covergence of these great events is convenient … so in the interest of public service, here’s a handful of New Orleans and Louisiana swamp rock songs for your Super Bowl/Mardi Gras party. You can find many more by going to our “Walkin’ To New Orleans” series, plus we have a handful of Saints fight songs. Of course, there are beaucoups more Saints fight songs at the New Orleans Times-Picayune. The Saints, the Colts and the Who are gonna tear it up this weekend … be there, square hair! Geaux Saints!
