Funeral for the Aints
Jazz Funeral to Bury the Aints Nickname
Keith Spera, The Times-Picayune (February 19, 2010)
A short article out of New Orleans caught my mock funeral adoring attention: on Saturday at four, a jazz funeral procession will commence for the no longer relevant nickname, “the Aints.” Saints once more, the NFL team rocked the Superbowl a couple weeks ago. After those celebrations, the homecoming parade proper and of course Mardi Gras, N’awlins is addicted to fun.
Fans are encouraged to bring their old Aints paper bags and place them in a coffin.
…The paper bags being what fans used to wear over their heads at games during particularly dismal seasons. Nice.
