Life can be cruel at times. Yet, the thought of being a Dirty Bird has me thinking of the shaken soul beneath the ruffled feathers.

Ultimately,there’s no love lost between the Saints fans and Atlanta. The hate runs deep. So deep, that the intensity on the field sometimes pales in comparison versus what happens on the outside. This year, the trolling may RISE UP. The 25 point lead the Atlanta Falcons squandered in the Super Bowl was historical. In addition, the debacle was hysterically entertaining to everyone in Who Dat Nation. The choke job will probably rank second only to the win by the New Orleans Saints in Super Bowl XLIV.

This is just a snippet from some of the trolling that happened from Jazz Fest last week.

Moreover, If the flags aren’t enough, then just look only to the architectural geniuses that put the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium together. Outside, there is a gargantuan statue that’s supposed to be a symbol of a fearless Falcon over a football. They couldn’t possibly mess that up right? Umm yes they did. The football surely looks to resemble an egg. Seriously Atlanta…

Surely, there had to be countless hours of planning and designing of this stadium for months and years. It’s unfathomable to think that an error of this magnitude could be finally presented on the foot of the brand new stadium. The sculpture tends to poke fun of the very team that it’s supposed to be representing in a good light. Instead, fans will always be reminded of the win that could’ve been. The Super Bowl that got away.


As if the Saints needed anymore fodder. The Atlanta Falcons created a monument that will always be visible for the test of time. The day the Falcons laid an egg. Thank you Mr. Architect for making our jobs a little bit easier. Let the trolling continue.
