(Me, Thrace, Eric M.)
Last night, New Orleans threw a special float parade for The Saints' victory at the Super Bowl. The turnout was higher than I'd ever seen at any Mardi Gras parade, and it was almost entirely locals. At one point we made our way into our friend's office and looked down, and all of the Central Business District was packed with cars and people -- like, packed meaning you couldn't fit anyone else between any two people. Amazing.

It was an amazing parade despite being very cold out. I wore an undershirt, dress shirt, sweater, jacket, heavy coat, scarf, gloves and flap hat, and was still cold.

The traffic was so heavy getting to the parade that Melanie and I had to resort to our backup plan - we'd strapped our bikes to the car earlier, so we parked (about a block from our house) and rode the four miles into town. Good exercise!

@soulglo1976: That's been the best part about the Saints Parties - to my knowledge, I haven't seen or heard of any shady activity, everyone's just too excited and happy.

(Once the 'Gras comes around, it'll be a different story I'm sure.)

Man i hate our weather. As much as I don't really care for football or the saints. It's cool that there was this parade and that it was pretty much all local. I've been soo over Mardi gras for liike 10 years now b/c it's just too touristed.

Only one question
Was it too cold for breast flashing?

@ozzynelson: It was too cold for anything flashing. Don't worry, I'm sure there'll be plenty of that from tourists during the weekend!
