It all began, earlier in the season.............when the Saints beat the Patriots......... gave them a "whooping" as some would say. The Patriot Dynasty fell to the team once known as the "aints." Well the AINTS AINT AINTS NO MORE! :) Its NFL history in the making and quite possibly the most exciting super bowl EVER!
The game will be in Miami but the players will be representing
Indianapolis and New Orleans.
I am a Long Time Saints fan. Have been ever since I worked in the Superdome, selling Nacho's at age 15. They were the "AINTS" back then and grocery stores couldn't keep paper bags in stock, as people wanted them to decorate and wear over their faces, still wearing SAINTS GEAR but ..............not revealing "who dat" they were.
Now days, the Saints are "America's Team" the underdogs, the survivors of katrina and the fans are out (without the bags) and stores are selling out of Saints Gear, Jerseys , Fleur De Lis , you name it, the Saints are a money making entity for their city and the NFL at large. Many people are getting in on the action and using their skills to market items to the newly formed and LARGE fan base.
With Mardi Gras Right around the corner, king cakes are being made (business as usual) but now you can buy them in the colors of the SAINTS (black and gold) ****thanks to my GF, VICKI who so graciously sent me one to enjoy this weekend!
The Game is just around the corner and you know me, gotta try to get some FRUGAL game plan going for SUPERBOWL SUNDAY!
All of the sudden people were asking me for IDEAS on what to serve to represent New Orleans at their Super Bowl parties. I wrote a brief blog post (not frugal in nature) just to put out there what it is that people eat (besides seafood) when they are at home here. Many people that I know personally that live in New Orleans wont be cooking at all , but rather be in various establishments to celebrate locally with their friends, on balconies in the quarter.
