How New Orleans Won A Super Bowl without Stepping On the Field

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.

Help Keep Big Easy Magazine Alive

Hey y'all,

I just wanted to provide an update to where we stand today. A few days ago, we launched a fundraising effort to keep Big a Easy Magazine alive. We determined we would need to raise $10,000, which represents 1/10 of the personal investment I made into the publication. As it stands now, we have raised just over $300 and have set a fundraising deadline of midnight June 1st. Please help us meet our goal. I promise you with your support if we reach our goal, you will be able to continue seeing progressive content about the issues that matter. If we don’t meet our goal, well, in all honesty, those who have an interest in our demise will have won the battle. When we launched the fundraising effort, we got bombarded with remarks such as “see ya,” and “lol.” We cannot allow them to win. Please donate today to keep us alive and support progressive media.

Thank you,
Scott Ploof
Big Easy Magazine

  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.
