Dorothy's a WhoDat?

A little explanation: Buddy D was a legendary sportscaster for WWL and the Saints and he promised that he would parade down Bourbon Street in a dress if the Saints ever made it to the Superbowl.

He died in 2005, never getting to.

His successor and former Saints quarterback, Bobby Hebert, promised to fulfill Buddy D's promise.

Well, it has finally happened this year. And it became an event. It is estimated that 85,000 people turned out for Buddy and Bobby's Brawds Dress March Jan. 31st as they paraded from the Superdome into the French Quarters and then proceeded to have a pep rally.

I didn't get to go (needing to conserve gasoline right now for getting to work), so I was checking out the video and picture galleries WWL has already put up when this one surprised me: Dorothy in Buddy and Bobby's Brawds Dress March.

I had no idea Dorothy was a WhoDat!

"WhoDat" (just try to sue me NFL!) is the name Saints fans call themselves pulled from the local vernacular and this fight phrase "Who dat? Who dat? What dat says they gonna beat the Saints? Who dat?" Which was used at a local high school before Saints fans brought it to the Dome in the 80s.

There's a snit because the National Football League said they own the copyright of it along with the fluer-de-lis, Saints logo, and Saints colors. It's been amusing to watch them back peddle as elected officials have said "take us to court over using it."
