Buddy D Parade. Did you wear your dress?

For those of you who don’t know the story: Buddy Diliberto (Buddy D) was a local sportswriter/broadcaster/radio personality in the New Orleans area for years, and when the Saints went 5-0 in 1993 and everyone was calling in saying we were going to the Superbowl, Buddy said he would wear a dress and parade down Bourbon if they made it, and since he was sooo big he would need a tent maker to make his dress (this is where Abdul D Tentmakur comes from)….well, after Buddy passed away, Bobby Hebert (former quarterback and now broadcaster) decided to keep the promise…and it came to pass! Much like EVERYTHING we do in New Orleans…we did it to excess! There were over 5000 men dressed, and over EIGHTY THOUSAND folks that came out to watch…it was a sight to behold…check it out!
