A handful of New Orleans restaurants and bar will not be showing Super Bowl LII between the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots on Feb. 3rd.
This is in protest of last Sunday’s controversial ending.
Get a load of this, instead the bars will be showing the 2010 Super Bowl, where the Saints beat the Indianapolis Colts 31-17.
Via The Advocate:
A few public officials are floating the idea of staging a parade to honor the team’s otherwise impressive 13-3 season, as a form of counter demonstration. And a local music promoter is busy trying to organize a game-day music festival called “Boycott Bowl,” with the hope of bringing Saints fans together in one huge act of defiance. “If we want the change, we have to demonstrate for this,” said Travis Laurendine, who is putting together the music event with his childhood friend, Brandon Rizzuto, the former general manager of the New Orleans VooDoo arena football team. “The idea is: Why don’t we bring people together to celebrate our community and celebrate the Saints? Why not do what we do really well and give (the NFL) a giant (expletive) that’s many thousand people strong?”
Tracey’s Original Irish Channel Bar, Vaughan’s Lounge in Bywater and Magazine Street’s Dat Dog are just a few of big name bars to boycott the game.
This may be taking it a touch too far.
I get you lost, but still enjoy the game of football.
Win or lose.
