New Orleans Saints: Jazz Funeral To Be Held This Saturday To Officially Bury The Aint's


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.

    I was reading thru various Search engine listings relating to the city of New Orleans and I came upon your blog post. I’m a lifelong resident in the city (The Bestbank of course) not to mention I am a huge Bush football supporter. I really like the Saints football team, the Hornets and also the Zephyr’s baseball team. The city has long since recovered from August 2005 however , each time one of our professional sports teams like the Saints team can secure a world championship it will help the local economy that much more. Thanks once more for a great write-up about New Orleans.

    For the many people who find it hard to cope with a death, grief counseling often can help them make the transition. Its goal is to help people grieve within a normal, healthy period of time and eventually resume their daily lives. Grief counseling can be a long-term process, a short-term affair or even a one-off, trumny and can occur on a one-to-one basis or in groups
