“Who dat?” It’s a familiar refrain around New Orleans come football season. It bubbles out of bars, spills from open windows and echoes through the streets. “Who dat? Who dat say dey gonna beat dem Saints?”
New Orleans Saints fans are called the Who Dat Nation for good reason: We love a good game … even the not-so-good ones. Sure, our passion for the 2010 Super Bowl champs borders on obsession, but we’re equally fond of the Pelicans (the city’s NBA team), the Zyphers (our AAA baseball league) and local collegiate teams (Tulane, Louisiana State University). What else would you expect in a state dubbed the “Sportsman’s Paradise”?
Who dat say dey wanna catch the NOLA team spirit?
