Who Dats plan to bring their own party to Miami for Super Bowl XLIV
By Susan Langenhennig, The Times-Picayune
There are plenty of star-studded spectacles in the works for this weekend in South Florida. But a good chunk of the Miami-bound Who Dat Nation plans to skip the velvet ropes and $20 drinks and party with their own. "We want to go down there and make some noise. That's what we do," said David "Doc" Mancina, who is part of a huge Saints tailgating group, called the Down Undas, who stage a party under the Poydras Street on-ramp before home games. “I’ll have more fun in a sports bar than at some corporate-type event. We want to be out on the street making a ruckus.”
SEATTLE DJ RIPS SAINTS AND KATRINA - Seattle, WA
You know I hate to even post this garbage but I'm really pissed off at this guy. This Bozo, Dori (is that really a man's name?) Monson laughs about the Saints and calls Hurricane Katrina a "rain storm". I think we should fly up to Seattle and kick his butt! (Better yet, let's take it out on the Colts!)
DOC MANCINA - New Orleans, LA
National Public Radio DJ Mike Pesca interviewed Doc about the ‘Who Dat’ – NFL controversy.
STEVEN SCAFFIDI - New Orleans, LA
I happened to see Quint Davis (founder of Jazz Fest) at the Down Undas' tailgate party before the Saints/Vikings Championship game. He was standing next to the "Chargrilled Oysters" where Doc claimed he owned the famous Drago's recipe. Anyway, Quint was with some "guy" wearing an Izod shirt who was kind of standing in the way, so I was thinking about polietly asking him to step aside so I could get a good picture of Doc and Quint. Well, I didn't want to be rude so I took the picture with the guy who happened to get in the middle of the shot. I didn't realize who that guy was until I got home...and it was Jimmy Buffett! See Story
ROB MAYEAUX - New Orleans, LA
Jimmy Buffett and Quint Davis (Jazz Fest promoter) show up at Doc Mancina's "Down Undas" tailgate party before the NFC Championship Saints/Vikings game (down unda the Poydras Street down ramp). Doc and the guys offer 'em some oysters, jambalaya and beer as they meet and greet the "Down Undas". Jimmy takes a look at Doc's "Greg Head" hat and expresses a desire for one like it. In true fashion, Doc's negotiating skills kick in, and he plays "Let's Make a Deal" with Jimmy....a hat for a few songs with the band. Jimmy looks at Doc and says "this is on hell of a deal for you, Doc" and he agrees. Jimmy dons a hat and hops on stage with the Creole String Bean band and sings "Sea Cruise" and then "Margaritaville" with a "Who Dat" twist. Way to go Doc, a $10 hat for a $10,000 performance......BEST DAMN TAILGATE EVER!!!! See Video

Why this team and win is so special:
The weekend was spectacular, as the Dome was rocking and the pre/post parties were off the hook. Woke up this morning and realized I hadn't been dreaming, so the rest of the day I went about with a smile plastered on my face. But the best memory is what happened to me while on the way back home around 6 from a meeting downtown. A guy wearing a Vikings hat comes out of a hotel on Poydras and walks alongside me down the sidewalk. I told him his team put up one heck of a fight, and asked if he was enjoying his time in the city, not counting the loss of course. He stops, looks me straight in the eye, and says "This is the most amazing thing I've ever experienced. I'm glad the Vikes lost because I've never seen a scene of genuine happiness like I did last night. I feel lucky to be here and it's something I'll carry with me until I die. It's reminded me of what's it's supposed to feel like to be a sports fan." I stood there totally speechless. I gave him a handshake and hug.
Think about that: a fan for the other team says the experience of this Saints win was one of the best days of his life. Now that's special.
