Wearing a Dress for Buddy D and the Saints
WHO DAT! SAINTS ARE IN THE SUPER BOWL!!!
In 2007, New Orleans composer Jep Epstein wrote and recorded a song titled Heaven's 'Bout To Make The News. The song referenced a promise Buddy D made to his radio listeners that if the New Orleans Saints ever played in the Super Bowl, he would put on a dress and parade down Bourbon Street. The song gained a wider audience among Saint's fans in 2009, which marked the team's best start in a season in its franchise history. His successor at WWL, former Saints quarterback Bobby Hebert, has promised to fulfill Buddy D's vow.
January 25, 2010, the New Orleans Times-Picayune with his family's blessing ran an altered photograph of Buddy D in a dress to celebrate the New Orleans Saints first NFC Championship.
On Sunday, January 31 2010, Buddy D will be honored with a parade led by Bobby Hebert in a dress from the Superdome to the French Quarter.
UPDATE - Bourbon Street filled with men in dresses.
UPDATE 2- Must see video from WWL:
