Black shirts and gold pants. Has to be! They look great and very intimidating! I still keep thinking about that hit they put on Warner, the next time he saw a Saints player after he got up, as far as he was concerned they were wearing Rainbow colours, LOL.

Well it depends.

In South Louisiana 35 years ago(When I was a kid and into that stuff) it was a curse.

"I'm gonna put a gris-gris on you."

Other meanings are a bag of weird stuff meant to protect the wearer from bad spirits.

Nowadays it has morphed into meaning all kinds of stuff, some of it good.

It was also a newspaper way back in Baton Rouge. I think an LSU student paper but its kinda fuzzy.

Aha! You admit it! (we had this argument the other night)

I knew it can be good. Otherwise, why would people go to Marie Laveau to buy a bag of gris-gris?

In modern WhoDatian usage it seems to include all kinds of charms: (see link)

my wife actually got a fortune cookie that said, "Your sports team will succeed this year." I am not making that up.

Question for you Saints fans: What do you think of teams that wear black when black is not one of the team colors?

That's funny you mentioned that! I got a fortune cookie before pre season that I've kept with me ever since!



I still carry it in my purse!

The Saints gotta roll with the Black and Gold this week!

And I don't mind "alternate" black uniforms when black is a team color, but I think it is lame when teams that have never had black in their uni's just decide to wear it b/c they think it looks cool.

I feel the same I wanted to slap some of the Vikings fans that wanted the Vikings have a 3rd black jersey.
