We hinted yesterday that the New Orleans Saints had some weird plans in order to help break their streak of bad luck on the road as they head to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles in the Wild Card Round. You can still buy Saints vs. Eagles tickets if you want to attend.
Now we have the full details.
Here is the scoop, courtesy of ESPN’s Mike Triplett:
Change the Gatorade flavors on the sideline;
- Spice up the recipe for the beefy mac in the pregame meal;
- Load up on Popeyes fried chicken during the flight;
- And change up the dress code on road trips to some nice sweat suits — maybe even adding a sweet new playoff patch.
Hey, whatever works.
The Saints are acting like fans with strange habits that just “work.” That’s fine as long as the Saints actually hit the road and win. The team needs a winning recipe — even if the win, the road challenges do not suddenly stop in Philadelphia.
Are you doing anything different for the Saints playoff game? Let us know!
