Who Dats watch Saints march to victory at Hollywood Casino

By Krystal Allan – bio | email

BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) - In Hancock County, game time meant party time for Who Dats from New Orleans to Alabama. More than 600 strong, they huddled up at the Hollywood Casino's Saints Super Bowl party.

The night was full of plays and playlists. Throughout the night, the room echoed with the rally cry of a popular Who Dat theme song, a remake of the Ying Yang twins' song "Halftime."  

Fans also showed off their footwork to what's become another popular theme song, Angela H. Bell's "I Believe."

Late in the fourth, the Saints found themselves up by two touchdowns. The Who Dat Nation exploded as the final minutes ran out and the Saints won their first Super Bowl championship. 

"I'm so happy for New Orleans for this great victory," said Tina Jackson of Columbia, MS. "After Katrina 2005, they needed it to make it a better city. Go Saints!" 

After the big win, fans were on fire. But for many, this win went beyond the victory on the gridiron.

"This is unbelievable," said Joey Fortier of New Orleans. "We lost everything in Hurricane Katrina. And to go all the way from down low to have something to cheer for, it was unbelievable!"

It was a sentiment shared by many in the room, including Tammy Ann Husley, better known as "Mama T."

"Everybody thought we were gonna fall apart," Husley said. "This just proves to you when you believe, it will happen, and New Orleans is going to be back."

The Who Dat Nation is relishing the sweet taste of victory as their beloved New Orleans Saints took home a win for their city and the Gulf Coast region.
