New Orleans Dukes sounds pretty sweet to me.

Another duke, Alexis Romanov, the Grand Duke of Russia, is believed to be responsible for the Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and gold. During his visit to New Orleans in 1872, the men of Rex adopted the Romanov family colors of purple, green and gold, which represented justice, faith and power.
Didn't know that the purple, green and gold represented that but that just makes it better to me.
