On Friday, Rachel Maddow (Maddeaux), and, Kent Jones, traveled to the delta to do her show from New Orleans.
It was a great idea and a great show that captured their resiliency, vibrance, and spirit. It also exhibited their excitment and enthusiasm for their Saints!
Who Dat? The New Orleans Saints, Dat’s Who!
Her guests included Dr. Norman Francis, President of Xavier University of Louisiana, who gave a brief history of bringing the Saints to New Orleans and the difficulties the city and the team had to overcome. Included a look at the levies with John Barry, and discussion of the years of erosion caused upriver. Kent took us on a culinary adventure forcing us to watch him enjoy and incredible Po Boy sandwich. And Grammy Award winner Terrance Blanchard and bass player David Pulphus took us out, and on our way to the Super Bowl with a rousing version of “When the Saints Go Marching In.”
I’m sure that video of the show will be posted on The Rachel Maddow Show web site soon.
If you didn’t catch it live you can see it before the Super Bowl.
And after the game you might be yellin—Who Dat?
