NEW ORLEANS, LA (WLOX) - The celebration in New Orleans actually started hours before the game as the streets of the French Quarter filled up early with Who Dats ready to cheer their team to victory.
Among them were newlyweds Brian and Cherie Olson who said their marriage might not have happened if not for the big game. The Olsons were married in New Orleans less than three hours before kickoff, in a plan that was years in the making.
"We vowed to each other that once the Saints get to the Super Bowl, we're going to come get married back in New Orleans," said Brian. "This is a dream come true for both of us. When the Saints beat the Vikings two weeks ago, we started booking the wedding plans."
The Olsons said although they were never guaranteed their wedding day would come, they always believed it would happen.
Fans walked the streets wearing almost everything, from fun to festive to just plain weird. Saints jerseys, gold tutus, masks and beads were all visible along Bourbon St. One fan carried a mock Lombardi Trophy made out of aluminum foil. The fashions ranged wildly, but they shared one common theme. Almost without exception, they included black and gold.
While "Who Dats" filled the air, some fans chanted a new phrase, taken after the song "Pants on the Ground" made famous by an American Idol contestant.
"Colts are going down, Colts are going down, Colts are going down with their pants on the ground!" shouted Charmaine Skinner as she waved a Saints flag overhead.
For Skinner, every cheer for her team was also a cheer for her city.
"We have a championship bring it home, lets be prosperous this year, and lets just have a great time," Skinner said.
Because for Charmaine and so many fans like her, this Super Bowl meant more than a game.
"The city of New Orleans needs it, showing them that we got potential to do everything," Skinner said.
