My son Brady and his wife Molly return today from a trip to New Orleans to celebrate Molly’s birthday. They had planned this trip several weeks ago before knowing that the NFC Championship game would be played there Sunday night. Brady texted me a shot of their Sunday morning newspaper which turned out to be prophetic.
He and Molly watched the game from their hotel room which was up on the 14th floor of a hotel located several blocks from the French Quarter. He said when the game was won the entire city roared like an explosion of some sort. He and Molly then went out on the streets to join the party which was described as Mardi Gras on Red Bull. http://blog.nola.com/twobitbeat/2010/01/like_mardi_gras_on_red_bull_th.html
