Now that the Saints have finally brought a Lombardi Trophy to the Big Easy it’s time to part ways with a darker team name that resided from a dreadful 1-15 season in 1980, the Aint’s, that was so bad it prompted fans to wear paper bags on their heads.
That’s not the case any longer after the Saints beat the Colts in Super Bowl XLIV, now everyone seems to be a fan of the black and gold.
In fitting fashion a classic New Orleans Jazz funeral will be held to bury the Aint’s and the paper bags once and for all. The funeral will be headed by trombonist Glen David Andrews and his musician cousins, the Baby Boyz Brass Band.
The procession will be complete with a horse drawn carriage and will start at 4 p.m. this Saturday on the corner of North Robertson and St. Philip streets and will then wind through the French Quarter before ending at 618 Frenchmen St.
All fans are invited to attend the procession and encouraged to bring their own paper bags to bury in honor of the passing of the Aint’s.
