On Sunday, New Orleans showed the world that the Saints can win a Super Bowl without even stepping on the field. As the Patriots and the Rams faced off in what would be the lowest-scoring Super Bowl in NFL history, Saints fans took to the streets of their city in a protest against the NFL, and a show of support for their team. Along the way, they showed the world a truth that many already knew about New Orleans:

When this city puts its mind to something, it can do anything.

In any other city, the loss of a championship game due to a missed call by the game officials might have caused rioting. In New Orleans, we had a parade so massive that cars stopped along I-10 to watch.

And while the Big Easy partied, other football fans were treated to a game so boring, even the stadium’s namesake took to Twitter to protest.

Our #BoycottBowl was definitely better than your Super Bowl, NFL.

  1. Now that the World knows what Family means to us, keep your cheating outta Orleans Parish. When the Governor let’s you have a statement and then an Attorney takes the case to court and the World says , Whats wrong with them down in New Orleans, Well the Courthouse was a setup. We actually render court on the streets of New Orleans. Don’t Play, You Hear? How are there anyone able to say them folks down on the Bayou, aint no joke. On de’ Bayou where the alligators are so mean needs to be remembered. Next time you will be Gator Bait, You’ve been warned.
