BURY THE BAG

March 4, 2010

You knew that when the Saints won the superbowl, we were gonna keep finding reasons to party. right? right? well if you thought the party was over when the Lombardi Trophy was lifted…when the Saints parade attracted 80,000, or when Mardi Gras was here…you were wrong.

We still had one more thing to do: BURY THE BAG. The Aints of the 80’s…that hapless, winless dyNASTY is now a thing of the past, and we just had to BURY THE BAG in an official New Orleans FUNeral.

Thanks to Glen David Andrews for organizing and DBA for giving us a place to mourn(hiccup).
