There Are 21-plus events for New Orleans Saints fans’ on anti-Super Bowl on Sunday

 

In response to what sports columnist Jeff Duncan called “one of the most egregious non-calls in NFL history,” referring to the lack of a pass-interference penalty in the Jan. 20 NFC Championship game that allowed the Los Angeles Rams to make a comeback and win, New Orleans fans began planning parties.

There is no formal agency pulling this city together. New Orleanians just grabbed an oar and got this city moving in a positive direction.

Chef Amy Cyrex Sins planned the “Anti-LIE Bowl Party- #pettynola” party at Dat Dog, which spread to the full 3300 block of Magazine; the Rev. Bill Miller, rector of Christ Episcopal Church in Covington announced a “Black and Gold and Yellow Flag Sunday” Super Bowl Sunday service; and public relations professional Kim Bergeron, began raising money to host the Black and Gold Second-line Parade in the French Quarter.

We came up with creative names for Sunday, such as the Super Bowl LIE (get it) and Super Bowl “Shun” Day and “Superboil” party.

Social media bloomed with passive resistence strategies for not watching Super Bowl XLIII and making it count from a ratings standpoint. TV writer Mike Scott described exactly how fans in New Orleans and throughout the United States can do that here: How properly to boycott Super Bowl LIE, from a ratings standpoint.

By the way, we should send this link to the folks at Geaux Brewing in Auburn, Washington, because the anti-bowl feature has spread beyond the city limits. The place is frequented by Saints fans, so they plan to host “Saints Gameday: Super Bowl LIE” party, with a zebra piñata to whack.  (By Ann Maloney Nola.com)
